You are the same today as you’ll be in five years except for two things: the books you read and the people you meet. – Charlie Jones

On paper, I should have failed before I even started.

As a kid out of school with no money, experience, or team, I didn’t have much going for me.

Except I would read to succeed. I still do.

The early days of my EdTech, Embanet, aren’t much to write home about.

Failure was an everyday occurrence.

My passion and belief kept me in the game, but this was still not enough.

Every failure, every frustration, and every set back caused me to do one thing.

Read.

I would read to succeed.

Business books. Self-help books. Psychology books. Biographies. Autobiographies. Sales books.

You name it. I read it.

When I read to succeed, I learned the wisdom and life lessons of ultra-successful people in a few short hours.

Imagine that, eighty to ninety years of life condensed into a few hours.

The lessons learned from brilliant people helped me create a 9-figure exit.

What were these lessons, you ask?

Keep on reading.

Knowing what others before me did to live a life worth living was liberating and empowering.

Read To Succeed By Knowing What To Read (And Not Read)

Read To Succeed

Books are the training weights of the mind. -Epictetus

If you want success, lots of it, read to succeed by knowing what to read (and what not to read).

When it comes to reading, as in life, not all things are equal.

Success leaves clues.

If you want to be successful, mirror and do what other successful people do.

What do the most successful people read, you ask?

Thought leader, author, and entrepreneur Shane Snow has your answer.

Snow writes a great article on what the most successful people read and why.

It turns out ultra successful people read biographies and autobiographies.

Read to succeed through biographies and autobiographies to learn templates of success.

As an example, let’s talk about Roger Bannister.

In 1954 Bannister shocked the world when he was the first person to run a 4-minute mile.

Until Bannister, conventional wisdom said it was impossible for a human to run a 4-minute mile.

It’s no coincidence that a short two months later, John Landy ran a 4-minute mile. Today high school kids run a 4-minute mile.

When you read to succeed you learn what’s possible so you can turn the ‘impossible’ to ‘I’m possible.’

You’re smarter and more capable thank you think.

Read Snow’s article, and while you’re at it, check out Snow’s book Smartcuts.

You’ll thank me later.

Read to succeed through biographies and autobiographies.

Now that I know what to read, you ask, how do I read?

Learning How To Read Ensures You Will Read To Succeed

Books are mirrors. You only see in them what you already have inside of you. -Carlos Zafon

When you know how to read you set yourself up for success and you will read to succeed.

I went from zero to a 9-figure exit by knowing how to read.

How do you read, you ask?

Most things in life, reading included, are easier and simpler than you think.

Below are your five to thrive:

  • Set up a specific time every day to read.
  • Read at least 20 minutes per day.
  • Ask ‘why’ you’re reading what you’re reading.
  • Read with your index finger to increase reading speed.
  • Keeping a book or e-book with you to maximize downtime.

First thing in the morning and right before bed are my golden times. Distractions are few, and my mind is raring to go.

Start by reading 20 minutes a day because it’s achievable. Build up to 60 minutes a day.

Keep yourself focused and learn by asking why you’re reading what you’re reading.

Read with your index finger leading the way. When you move your finger across the page at a comfortable speed, your eyes follow.

This one action stops you from subvocalizing, and you’ll likely double your speed.

Last, and most important, always carry a book or e-book with you.

When you have downtime, such as waiting in line, you can read to pass the time. And most importantly, you’ll learn.
