Take yourself to the next level with our reading challenge by reading a book that we recommend each month!
I'll also include the list of 20 books that have most impacted my life out of the thousands that I've read for free to get you started.
Many people stop reading after getting out of school. They think their education is complete. And you know what happens? They get passed by as their peers continue learning!
It's a competitive world out there! Are you giving yourself the edge? Or are you falling further and further behind?
|Did you think this was the end of your education? Successful people see this as the beginning...|
Warren Buffett, one of the wealthiest people in the world, is well known for spending up to 80% of his day reading. In fact, when Warren 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.”

Warren isn't the only one.
- Bill Gates reads about 50 books a year, which breaks down to about a book a week.
- Mark Cuban reads more than 3 hours every day.
- Mark Zuckerberg made a resolution to read a book every other week.
- Oprah Winfrey is an avid reader and stated "Books were my pass to personal freedom".
The list goes on and on.
|Bottom line, successful people read!|
I believe that my own reading habit has been instrumental in helping me develop the skills that have allowed me to lead a multi-million dollar IT company, serve in a wide variety of leadership roles in community groups, and serve as a director on multiple boards. It has influenced every aspect of my life, improving my finances, health, relationships, and allowed me to be a better husband and a better dad to my five children.
I've been reading multiple books every week for over 35 years and have probably read thousands of personal development books. What that means to you is that you won't have to wade through all the junk to get the good stuff. I'll send you the ones that made a big impact on my life.
This is about developing a habit of reading for personal development. Habits take time to develop, which is exactly why I put this program together, to help you develop that habit. As Zig Ziglar once said, "People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily."

These are some of the best books for personal growth out there, covering a wide range of topics including personal finances, business development, leadership, relationships, skills, and health. I'll even throw in some fun to read books sure to expand your mind.
Our first book is The 5 Levels of Leadership: Proven Steps to Maximize Your Potential by John C. Maxwell. This is a core book that should be considered required reading for everyone in my opinion. Whether you've just been granted a promotion, think you may want to lead at some point in your life, want to improve your relationships with others, or have been leading for a long time, I know you will get a lot out of this one. Remember leading doesn't just mean leading at work, it can be leading in your own home!
Challenges are always more fun and effective with friends. Why not share and challenge your friends to do this with you?
