Your Gratitude Burst – 2011 02 13

“You are the same today as you’ll be in five years except for two things, the books you read and the people you meet.”

– Charlie ‘Tremendous’ Jones

Reading builds your mind and expands your thinking.

In a world where the average American reads one to two books a year, if you read just one book a month you’ll be ahead of the pack ten fold.

Remember though, that you have to think about what you read. Apply it to your life and realize how it could impact your own experiences.

Learn from it. Finally, share it.

Knowledge is nothing if it is not given away freely. If you give because you have, you’ll develop a greater capacity to give. Share everything you learn and always be grateful. The first sign of greatness is gratitude.

If you have children, today’s blog post is specifically about children and reading. I hope you enjoy it!

Be Well.
