Why Reading is Important for Personal Growth and Achievement

Do not underestimate the magic of what 15 minutes of reading can do for your self-growth.

Kristen S.

Reading is a popular habit among super successful (and happy!) people. But not just any kind of reading – it’s the kind of reading which helps to spark the soul, building self-confidence and spirit.

Some people choose to read a devotional in the morning to help with setting their frame of mind for the day. Others may pick up a book or read a blog post in the evening. And then there are the other individuals (like I was) who do nothing because there is NO TIME.

Here is the cold, hard truth. You do have time. You just choose not to use it. Let me explain — a lot of us waste minutes throughout the day without really realizing it. Fifteen minutes can come and go as you scroll through Facebook. Fifteen minutes can easily fly by as you flip through the channels on your TV. You might spend fifteen minutes or more shopping or driving in the car. Those fifteen minutes you spent complaining about how unfair life is? Yep, those just flew by too. Get my point? You need to purposely fit it in your schedule. If you say you can’t fit it in, then clearly your mind has already rejected the idea. Here are some tips:

1. Get an audiobook for the car
2. Wake up fifteen minutes earlier
3. Set aside fifteen minutes before you go to bed
4. Subscribe to an uplifting blog that will send you notifications every time a new article is posted
5. Purchase a daily devotional book (not all of these are religious; some just have positive quotes)

Whichever is more convenient for you (or more inspiring), choose that. Do not make excuses.

If you need suggestions, here is some of my favorites:

1. “You are a Badass” by Jen Sincero
2. “Girl, Wash Your Face” and “Girl, Stop Apologizing” by Rachel Hollis
3. “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck” by Mark Manson
4. “The Power (The Secret)” by Rhonda Byrne
5. “Get Out of Your Own Way” by Mark Goulston

Remember, do not underestimate the magic of what fifteen minutes of positive reading can do for your self-growth. Make the time, and see how that changes your attitude over the next couple of months.
