Why reading books should be your top priority in 2019???
7 months ago, by Debdut Sengupta

Love books or hate books, reading books are one of the best things you can do for yourselves. That is why all the successful people out there like: Bill Gates (Founder of Microsoft), Sattya Nadella (CEO of Microsoft), Mark Zuckerberg (CEO of Facebook), Indra Nooyi (Chairwoman of PepsiCo ), all of them believe massively in book reading. They spent countless numbers of hours in reading books. Inspite of being in the top position they have the hunger to learn more, because they do know that this “Hunger of Learning” is the main reason of their success. Always remember, “Leaders are Readers”. 

Here are the top 5 reasons why you should start reading from today:

1. You are the Average:

“You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with”

— Jim Rohn ||American Enterpreneur||

It’s so true that it’s need to be repeated over and over again. It means that you gradually become like those persons with whom you hang out most of the time. If your friends does not care about their career, their academic performance, their productivity then the chances are that you also does not care about these things. But, imagine if the opposite thing happens i.e. your friends are very hard working, super concerned about their academic performance then it will also reflect on you.

“Show Me Your Friends and I’ll tell You Your Future”
– Chaplain Ronnie Melancon

Now you may say that I don’t have friends who are that successful. Indeed. Most of we don’t have these kind of friends. Actually you need not to. This is where “Reading Books” comes to the rescue. We all can have Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Mark Zuckerberg, Opera Winfrey, Steve Jobs as our travelling partners by reading their words. And as Jim said you will gradually become like them and will be successful.

2. Improves Your Focus and Attention

When you are reading you simply cut off yourself from the rest of the world and start to play the story in your mind. If it’s the crime scene and the murdered comes closer to the girl. You gradually start to visualize the weather was rainy outside, how the murderer opens the door, there is a knife in his hand, he is wearing a black jacket, how he approaches to the girl etc…Now, when you are playing this video in your mind it is like the video has completely consumed you. In this way you can improve your focus and attention.

3. Relaxation:

Stressed out??? Planning for a trip to Hawaii. No need for that. Because, you can say goodbye to your stress from now anytime with at convenience.

Multiple researches has shown over and over again that reading can significantly reduce stress levels.

So, just let yourselves loose in those pages of thoughts.
