Have you ever wondered how one habit could yield your results in every area of your life? What is this “one thing everything” activity that if we created a habit out of it, it would result in our life transforming before our very eyes and everyone would ask us “Wow – how did you think of that?”
Well my friends, that “one thing everything” is thirsting for knowledge and seeking answers. I learnt a long time ago that “leaders are readers”. We are very fortunate in today’s age as we have so much information literally at our fingertips – we can read a book (or kindle) or listen to an audio recording of a book. We have the blessing of being able to utilise our “down time” (such as when driving in our car) for audio books and can educate ourselves every day on any topic we are thirsting for.
Whether it is spiritual matters, mindset development, business strategy, wealth creation or relationship enhancement – we have it all at our finger tips. Having said that, are we really using this incredible gift to its maximum capacity? The answer for most of us is a resounding “no”. You see, ongoing adult education is a habit. First we create a new habit, then this habit re-creates us and every habit takes repetition before it becomes subconsciously programmed and automatic behaviour (usually daily for 30 days is the golden rule).
How can we then create this new habit of adding knowledge into the storehouse of our mind? The best way, is to become accountable to someone. Whether it is a Performance Coach & Mentor like myself, or someone else, the key is to let someone know that you will be reporting to them on a weekly basis on the progress of your new habit – Adult Education. Whether you like reading books or listening to books, make a decision today to make every day count by continually developing your mind. Choose a topic that interests you and that can add significant value to your life and begin today/tonight by going online and buying this educational tool. Then from tomorrow, create this new habit of daily education (make sure you are accountable to someone) and in 30 days you will not be able to do without it – your subconscious will remind you automatically, daily that you need to do it.
We all have the capacity to become great leaders and in order to do so, we need to become diligent and consistent readers.
And yes talking about leaders, come along (if you are in Adelaide) to Breakfast at the Next Level www.solresults.com and listen as I interview another amazing leader into how they have excelled in their field of excellence so you too can learn and apply the secrets to success.
I encourage you to go forward and commit to your own personal development by becoming a daily reader.
