Why read books? First of all, books are read, of course, to gain knowledge, find ideas, but we can also say that books form the worldview, values, beliefs, personal philosophy, and all this undoubtedly has an impact on the standard of living in general.
All of us, of course, know that information in our world today plays a decisive role, information flows surround us everywhere, and man is inevitably faced with the choice of what information to allow into his head.
The most interesting thing is that when you read a little bit of books every day, together it adds up and inevitably gives the result.
That's when, after a certain amount of time, you suddenly realize that you've changed for the better. If you persistently learn something new every day in small portions, the time will come and these small portions will combine in your head into a large body of knowledge.
Don't you think it's better to give in to the positive influence of ideas from the books of great people instead of wasting time on completely useless, albeit enjoyable, things like computer games.
Nowadays, young people simply burn up valuable time of their lives on completely useless activities, all the while striving for pleasure and entertainment, and then they should not be surprised at their mediocre results. This is the scourge of modern society. I think people used to be much more interesting, intelligent and educated, because back then there were no TVs and computer games, and they read books. It is interesting that the number of words you use to describe your reality directly affects the quality of your life.
On the other hand, books from areas such as personal growth and personal development require you to incorporate knowledge into your life, without this, the benefits of reading them are usually minimal.
I want to say more about the fact that actually read books also need to know how to read, because literature can be very different. The decisive thing about reading books is how you use what you learn, and whether you use it at all. There are people who know everything but don't do anything. Don't turn into such people, only action will always be decisive in getting the results you want.
It is safe to say that reading books will undoubtedly make you a more valuable person.
Some people are so engrossed in aimless pastime, craving for entertainment and pleasure, that they don't think about the fact that the most basic thing you can do to improve any area of your life is to start reading books on the subject.
You should approach the choice of books so that the topic of the book is relevant to you today (otherwise why read if it is not aligned with the goals you are striving for), and not for spare time, otherwise the usefulness of the book will be minimal. For example, if you want to get rich, then obviously you need to study books on wealth, and you certainly understand that without practical application of the ideas your income will not increase in any way. The most sensible thing would be to use the knowledge you have gained immediately after reading it.
Why do you think there are so many different trainings, courses, etc. nowadays? Because people have a problem with the implementation of knowledge in life.
Bookstores are overflowing with "help yourself" books, each of which gives you lots of ideas for success. But any advice is only of value if you take action, not if you sit idly by. Thousands of books are waiting for you to use their knowledge and experience.
I don't mean to say that reading without putting it into practice is of no value at all. On the contrary, it does, for example: if you read a book and realize that you had the wrong attitude about something or were wrongly convinced of something, the book will undoubtedly be of enormous benefit in changing your attitude to that problem, which will then influence your actions. The same cannot be said about reading books that have a practical orientation, because without the practical implementation of this knowledge the book will not have any value at all.
