Hey friends and fellow entrepreneurs!
It is an exciting time for me right now and I am pumped to get into this next blog post with you guys! There is so many good things going on in my life lately it is quite incredible 🙂
A few years back I was pretty down and going through some hard times in my life, but I kept on towards my dreams and never gave up no matter what. I knew from reading the right books like the “4HRWW,” by Tim Ferrirss that I could be free from financial worry.
So books and learning have been essential to my evolution as an online entrepreneur and they have definitely helped me to form the new horizons that I just couldn’t quite grasp before. You never know what these new horizons are until you go into the mind of the author and experience his successful consciousness through words.
That is why I always suggest practical reading and to do your best to always be increasing your skills. Regardless to the niche or job you may be into, you can still be learning how to do things more efficiently.
The video above explains how I didn’t even belief it was possible to live like Tim does until I actually read the book and saw how clearly he explains every step to achieve this lifestyle.
I have read this book now for the 3rd time and I am going to be trying to ACT on the material provided to help me with my own goals with the company I have chosen called MOBE. If you guys have been following for a while now then you would have read about MOBE before and some of my future plans coming up.
As I get better at my own blogging, list building, and sales letters; I still continue to read 4 or 5 books at a time and stay learning every day. But you got to also remember that learning is useless without application, so make sure to act on whatever you learn and test out new methods or tips.
Another thing I like to do is read my favourite books into the voice recorder on my Iphone, this way I learn it even better from first reading it out loud and then again when I listen to it later on. There is a different part of the brain that learns through audio compared to visual so if you can utilize both it is even more effective.
There are thousands of awesome books out there now for any niche or occupation you choose to go into. I suggest you research on google the top books and read reviews as well to find the ones really worth your money and time. Every successful entrepreneur out there is always improving their mindset and learning so there is no way around this essential part of the business.
The key friends is to find the authors that you really resonate with and this way you enjoy reading the material more and it doesn’t seem like such a chore. If you pick up a book and it doesn’t really interest you then simply don’t waste your time with it, instead find one that will get you inspired and fired up!
Another cool reading platform is called Scribd and it has thousands of great books you can view online for a monthly subscription fee. Check it out here: https://www.scribd.com
They say that 80% of this business is mindset so you want to be learning lots but also implementing even more. ACTION! Is a must, and you don’t want to be spending more time on reading then you are on actually working on your business. Make sure you are putting everything you learn to use and keep it as practical as possible 😉
Personally I am big on audio books because I can load them to my smart phone and listen while I am doing other tasks such as chores around the house, driving, or walking down town on a nice day.
Here is a great website I found to transfer audio books you find on YouTube into mp3’s for your device: http://www.clipconverter.cc
There are some audio books I have listened to 3, 4, even 5 times! One of my favs is anything by Bryan Tracy as well as “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post about the power of books and forming new horizons!
