“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
— Marcus Tullius Cicero
A room without books is like a body without soul. That’s how I feel. Books have information. If you have ever seen a Tai Lopez ad, he’s right. I have heard this time and time again. My dream has always been to get rich. Every time I have listened to a person who teaches topics related to that subject, they’ve always said that it is important to read. I want to steer off topic, just a little bit, and say that a lot of those people never said what to read. They said “just read.” So when I tried to follow their advice, I read a lot of fiction books. I didn’t understand. I just assumed that by reading anything in general, my brain would go stronger and I would get smarter and figure it all out. I was totally wrong. They meant to say that it’s important to read a lot of self-help books–books that have strategies, you know? Think “The Psychology of Self Esteem,” “How To Win Friends and Influence People”–boks like that. Since I have been reading books like that, my life has improved so much. Now I just love them. My mood is different. I lost 50 pounds because I read about how to. I drink more tea and use more spices. I meditate. I invest. I’m learning a lot of things. Books have information. They are tools. That quote is very powerful.
