Wealthy Mindset Series #8

Voracious Readers

As you know, one of the most important keys to creating wealth is the right attitude, and in this series today we will cover how the wealthy are voracious readers. They are continual learners.

Do you love to learn?

If so, you already have one of the traits the leaders of the United States possess. Many U. S. Presidents have been voracious readers from George Washington and James Madison to Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton and John F. Kennedy.

I have read that most corporate Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) read about one book per week. The following six billionaires credit reading with their success: Elon Musk, Warren Buffet and his partner Charlie Munger, Oprah Winfrey, Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates.

The point is, if you want to earn more you need to learn more. It is reported that Warren Buffet spends 80% of his day reading. And when you are passionate about something it is only natural to want to learn more about it.

It can also be one of the tell tale signs that you may be off course in your career, if you do not want to learn more about it. Maybe you are in the wrong field. If you enjoy learning more about something, whether it is knitting, horses, coaching or finance, you may very well be moving in the right direction.

And continual learning is not limited to books. It can show up in seminars, workshops, podcasts, conferences, traditional classrooms, coaching and mentorship. From this they look to see how they can create a return on that investment. Be sure to carve out the time to learn more about what you love. And as you learn more you will earn more.

In the next article of the series we will talk about how the wealthy are dollar smart, versus penny wise and dollar foolish.

To your prosperity,
