Did you ever wonder what is that one thing that almost all successful people has in common??
Yes! they read books.
Whether Iâ€™m at the office, at home, or on the road, I always have a stack of books Iâ€™m looking forward to reading. â€“ Bill Gates
I started to listen to music a whole lot, and I started to read more outside of just science and technology â€” Shakespeare, Plato. I loved King Learâ€ť â€“ Steve Jobs
At age 19, I read a book [The Intelligent Investor] and what Iâ€™m doing today, at age 76, is running things through the same thought process I learned from the book I read at 19. â€“Â Warren Buffett
If you are going to get anywhere in life you have to read a lot of books â€“ Roald Dahl
There is more treasure in books than in all the piratesâ€™ loot on Treasure Island and best of all, you can enjoy these riches every day of your life. â€“ Walt Disney
â€śI donâ€™t read booksâ€ť â€“ Donâ€™t be that guy. If you want to be successful, start discovering your love towards books today.
Thereâ€™s no denial, books play a very important part in our life. In fact, I believe books are the best mentors anyone can ever have.
Imagine how much happier youâ€™d be if the Dalai LamaÂ himself shows you how to find fulfillment in life, how to find pleasure doing the little things that matter.
Imagine how wealthy youâ€™d be today if Warren Buffett tells you where and how to invest your money to get the most profit out of it.
Imagine the impact youâ€™d be making in the world if Mahatma Gandhi were here to show you how to lead your people.
Like someone once said, â€śNothing great has everÂ accomplishedÂ alone.â€ť
Having mentors has the power to do miracles in your life.
Whatever it is that you want to accomplish in life,Â an experienced and trusted adviser, aka a mentor can get you kick-started on the path to achieving it.
The sad thing is you can’t have all the great people as your personal mentor. Unfortunately,Â some donâ€™t exist in this world anymore and some are way too out of your reach that you can not even imagine getting face to face with them in this short lifespan.
But the good thing is you can still pick their brains. All you need to do is, pick up a/the book about or by the person you would love to learn from.
Read on, learn from their experiences. Figure out what they would have done if they were walking in yourÂ shoes right now. Implement the learnings, listen to their advice as if they are sitting next to you and telling you what should be your next move.
Go ahead pick your mentor (dead or alive), ask him/her whatever you need help with, you shall have your answers.
Now, you might be a Blogger or maybe want to become one. Or maybe you’re not sure if blogging is the right path for you.
Maybe you’re just looking for some information to getÂ started. Or maybe you just need some inspiration and motivation.
Whatever it maybe? You have landed on the right place.

Over To You
I hope you enjoyed the post. Go ahead and read at least one book from theÂ list, if not all of them.
I know blogging can be tough and overwhelming, and it requires a lot of patience before you make your first $ online.
In most cases, you would start blogging, hoping to get rich in just a few months. And when you see that’s not happening you would lose patience and give up.
Let me tell you if you are on the same path and struggling to make money online then you are not alone, almost 90% of the bloggers facing that same situation.
But if you want to be in the other 10%, all you need to do is just get better than yourself from yesterday. Learn a lot of new things and improve your skills.
And in my opinion, books are the best place to get started with.
Let me know in the comments section which book is your favorite and why?
Also, do let me know if you want me to add any more books to this list which can help other bloggers.
