I want to succeed. Why should I read books? How will it help me in my life?

This is a great question and many are thinking so. Before answering your question I would like to tell you some facts about people who spend a lot of time reading books.
  • Renowned, successful businessman Warren Buffett recommends that, for those who want to succeed, we should read 500 pages every day. “Buffett spends about six hours a day reading books. For most busy people it can be a daunting prospect, but only if you are willing to work. He says how knowledge works - it becomes like compound interest. "
  • The former CEO of Microsoft Bill gates reading 50 books a year or about one book a week.
  • The Facebook CEO vowed to read a book every other week "with an emphasis on learning about different cultures, beliefs, history and techniques," he wrote in a Facebook post.
  • Long before he became Tesla's CEO, a young Elon Musk read science-fiction novels for 10 hours a day.
So my dear friends look at these facts. Every successful person has a habit of reading and they are taking time out of their busy schedule to read. So, obviously reading is not a bad habit at all.

Now to answer your questions I would like to mention a story here, the story of "Hanuman". Everyone knows that Hanuman had the ability to fly. But according to Mythology, when he was a child, he tried to fly up and catch the sun, which he mistook for a fruit. While he continued to misbehave, powerful sages cursed him for forgetting his magical powers, such as the ability to fly or to become infinitely large, until he was reminded of them. He leads the monkeys to help free Rama's wife Sita from Ravana. Reminiscent of his powers by the bear king Jambavan, he crossed the strait between India and Lanka in a single leap and he discovered Sita.

So, you are no different than Hanuman. You had magical powers when you were a child. But over time you have forgotten that power because of the responsibilities of society. Just recall it.

Is there a Jambavan in your life that reminiscent you of your powers? These books serve as Jambavan of your life. The author gives his life experience to succeed in the book. You can get that experience by reading his book. It will help you understand your strengths and guide you to be a successful and happy person. Once you remember the power of your childhood you can achieve your goal in one leap.

So, this is the difference between successful people and you. They have many good habits, one of which is reading. Due to the habit of reading, they gained more and more knowledge in less time and they became successful. If you want to be happy and successful in life, try to get into the habit of reading. It will definitely help you get what you want in your life. 

Read a book - it will help you to understand the different aspects of your situations. It will empower your thinking.
