Reading: The Secret Sauce of Success

Have you ever thought about what one habit ultra-successful people have in common? Sure you have! We look up to highly successful people as mentors and guides to the path of our own success. Everyone looks at them and studies their habits to learn the ‘secret sauce’ of just exactly what creates their success.

Well, here is the answer: Every highly successful person will tell you their one secret to success … they read. A lot!

Warren Buffett was once asked about the key to success. He pointed to a stack of nearby books and said, “Read 500 pages like this every day. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will do it.” Buffett takes this habit to the extreme  —  he reads between 600 and 1000 pages per day when he was beginning his investing career, and still devotes about 80 percent of each day to reading.

Other top business leaders and entrepreneurs who make reading a major part of their daily lifestyle:

• Bill Gates reads about 50 books per year, which breaks down to 1 per week
• Mark Cuban reads more than 3 hours every day
• Elon Musk is an avid reader, and when asked how he learned to build rockets, he said, “I read books.”
• Mark Zuckerberg resolved to read a book every 2 weeks throughout 2015
• Oprah Winfrey selects one of her favorite books every month for her Book Club members to read and discuss

A study of 1,200 wealthy people found that they all have reading as a pastime in common.

Successful people don’t just read anything. They are highly selective about what they read, opting to be educated over being entertained.

They believe that books are a gateway to learning and knowledge.

In fact, there is a notable difference between the reading habits of the wealthy and the not-so-wealthy. Successful people tend to choose educational books and publications over novels, tabloids, and magazines. And in particular, they obsess over biographies and autobiographies of other successful people for guidance and inspiration.

Are you looking to get in shape, or live a healthier lifestyle? Paul will help you re-think your relationship with food and exercise, using the concepts of lean and waste. The results speak for themselves, as Paul has transformed his own life over the past couple years.

“Lean thinking can make a difference in your health if you think of it as a car. Do you think of your body as a Ferrari and treat it like a powerful and well designed machine? Or, do you treat your body like an old jalopy, lacking in power, efficiency and just getting down the road? Not surprisingly, most people find their machines low on the necessary fuel, oil and maintenance required by the machine to achieve the highest performance possible. Learn to take care of your body just like a high-performance Ferrari.”

“Travel is one of the most inspiring and educational experiences we can have. For most, the true experience of global travel is elusive. For the ones who do experience travel, most miss out on the pure joy and enlightenment travel brings us. In this book, we learn to understand and experience travel the way it was intended, through the simplicity of Lean thinking.”
