I failed in so many business ventures and at the time I can never pin point why. I had the right enthusiasm, energy and excitement but I always seem to hit major road blocks. After failing in one of my biggest business ventures I decided to call it quits and focus on my 9 to 5 job. Eventually the fire to get back into business reignited several years later, but this time I had a mentor who encouraged me to read and personally develope.
After taking my mentors advice I began to read anything and everything I can get my hands on. I became addicted to the growth. People around me noticed the change and I loved it.Because of the books I’ve read I’m now running my busines full time and became a leader mentoring new and struggling Entrepreneurs. One of the first piece’s of advice I give to my mentees is to READ.
Here are my top 3 reasons why every Entrepreneur should Read Books
1. Expedites Growth
Many of the personal development books I’ve read are first hand accounts of the authors experience. It’s typically what he or she did wrong and what they would have done better. They also share important advice that helped them get to the position of success they are in.
2. Builds Confidence
When I failed in my first business ventures it killed my confidence. I thought what a screw up I was and felt like the only person in the world who failed on that level. After reading several books and reading the stories of successful business men and women who failed I realized it’s apart of the journey. I was now confident I was on the right track.
3. Create Separation
Most people aren’t willing to spend a few hours a day reading but what I noticed is those who do always separate themselves from the rest. One of my mentors Patrick Bet-David had many peers and mentors who were at the same level of success he was. Now many of his peers and even former mentors take mentorship from him. He is one of the most sought after Entrepreneurial coaches in the world. He contributes his separation to Reading Books and implementing what he learned.
Success Leaves Clues
Many of the CEOs of fortune’s 500 companies read 5 to 10 books a month. The world’s richest men like Buffet and Gates spend hours of their day reading. As I study more and more successful people I noticed a huge part of their daily regimen consists of reading. As they say success leaves clues I do my best to mimic what they do.
“I still probably spend five or six hours a day reading,” Buffett says in HBO’s documentary, “Becoming Warren Buffett.”
