5 ways my life was transformed by reading
Before age 27, I used to openly joke when people would recommend me books. "Oh! Haha, I don't read," I would scoff at any title suggested.
It was never a jab at the friend offering a great read. Instead, it was a lame joke about my unwillingness to sit still long enough to invest in some reading time. It was me being insecure about finishing a tube of chapstick before finishing a book.
I broke down my barriers with a few special books:
You Are A Badass -Jen Sincero
The Last Word On Power -Tracy Gross
Dare to Dream and Work to Win -Dr. Tom Barrett
Think and Grow Rich -Napoleon Hill
The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up -Marie Kondo
As I type this, I am shocked that November of 2016 looked like me living in my apartment in Indiana just launching my first website and one short year later, hosting The Book Club for MY first book!
To conclude with my invitation for you to start your own reading journey, I would love to share my top 5 favorite benefits that I only discovered by starting to read.
