6 Life Changing Books

Posted on by ums

Jenkins Group publishing company shared that, “80% of U.S. families did not buy or read a book last year.” This is daunting because reading is the foundation for personal growth and success.

There is a saying, “Give everyone a million dollars and fast forward time by 10 years. Each person will have the same amount of money they had prior to being given a million dollars.” This is because a person regardless of the opportunities handed to them cannot transform their life without the knowledge required to do so. Personal development books offer people the knowledge to enable them to change their life by teaching how to acquire wealth, achieve happiness, accomplish goals and live a purposeful life. These types of skills are not taught in schools. They are acquired by reading books.

Reading offers a unique opportunity to learn from people who are out of your reach. Some of these people have achieved tremendous levels of success and share their stories through books. This form of learning serves as an indirect form of mentorship, similar to what we offer here at Unique Mindset.

Considering that the most successful individuals are avid readers, it is important to state that reading the right books will open many avenues for personal success.
