Is Reading Different Books Actually Harmful?

The title of this blog might surprise those of you who know me well (I'm an avid reader), but let me tell you why I changed my mind. In the past year I've been able to overcome multiple addictions and work harder than I ever had in my life, and not because I've read different books, but because I started reading the same books over and over.


If you’re someone who wants more discipline, more trust in yourself and more persistence, you need to know about the power of reading the same books over and over again, and you need to know about the three books that have changed my life.


Why would you want to read a book over and over again? 


The benefits of reading a book over and over again are:


  • You’re more likely to remember it

  • You’re more likely to get different lessons out of it

  • You’re more likely to take action 


Think about it, there's a world famous book about a man who came back from the dead that has changed lives and started entire communities. You may have heard of it, it’s called Twilight by Stephanie Meyers (I’m kidding, but I have actually read Twilight at least twenty times). 



In all seriousness, I found an article from Medium that sums up my thoughts perfectly:


Most people think they’re going to listen to something one time and change. But the problem is that the subconscious mind doesn’t work that way. There are so many things competing for the attention of your subconscious mind. It’s only when you listen to something over and over that it manages to cut through the noise and your subconscious realizes “this is important.”

Our subconscious mind is the most powerful tool we possess. We can not control it, but we can feed it ideas and allow it to direct us to what we desire most. A book is not going to change your life if it sits on the shelf and you sit in a chair. Just because you know information, it does not mean it will change you. You have to change you.


I know you can. I love you and I’m rooting for you.


But isn’t reading the same thing over and over again boring?


Maybe? This can be overcome by studying with a group. Just look at Masterminds and Bible Studies. Doing things with other people makes it fun because you’ll get different things out of the book and bond with others. I’m going to start a group in March that will go over Think and Grow Rich each week in a group setting. If you’d like to join the group click here to sign up free.


Honestly, reading different books isn't harmful if your goal is to have fun, but if you want to change your life, get a few great books into your blood and do something about what you learn inside of them.


Love,

Laura Mai


P.S.


Here are three books that have honestly changed me, my goal is to get these books into my blood. 


  • Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

  • $100m dollar leads by Alex Hormozi

  • How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie
