Here's an eyebrow-raising statistic.
Half of the thousands of people who follow this site are ALREADY MILLIONAIRES according to our analytics, and a full quarter of you are multi-millionaires! Why is that? I'm not positive, but I've got a pretty good theory…
People who are millionaires have developed the habit of personal growth and development!
Let's take a look at a few names you might recognize who have developed the habit of personal development.
- 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”.
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.”
“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 Buffett
“Knowledge builds up, like compound interest.”
Let that sink in for a moment.
