Benjamin Barber, an eminent sociologist, once said, “I don’t divide the world into the weak and the strong, or the successes and the failures… I divide the world into the learners and non-learners.”
One of the greatest investments you can make in yourself is to constantly be working on your own personal growth and professional education. When you work on personal growth, you grow. When you grow, you are creating a new life for yourself. Your personal growth will parallel the growth in your business.
We do not stay motionless at any stage in life. We continue learning fresh things, acquiring more experiences, diversifying our positions of life, meeting new individuals and so forth. Our capacities are consistently increasing. It is not simply about the academic and professional reservations that you gain. It’s about everything in life that you accomplish. Whatsoever you do, you’re adding it to your repertoire of potentialities. You’re reaching fresh pinnacles of success and even if you’re failing in matters, you’re extending your own limits every time.
That’s why you have to constantly keep evolving

By spending 20-30 minutes reading a book or listening to audios, you are programming your mind to succeed. I truly believe that if we don’t like the way our life is going and if we are ready for success then we must change ourselves first.
I’ve created a page on my blog where I share some great ebooks that you can download for free and I will be constantly adding to this list so make sure to check back often.
So, make the commitment to yourself to work on personal growth by reading one book a month so you can grow.
If you feel you don’t have time to read a book then make it a point to always carry a book with you. While you are standing at the post office line, while standing in line at the grocery store. Grab a book and read anywhere! When you’re doing errands, pop in a CD or audio book and feed your mind.
