Let Books Invade Your Mind.

“One can resist the invasion of an army but one cannot resist the invasion of ideas.”

~ Victor Hugo
You have to read. You have to go to the library, or you have to build your OWN.

I’m never without book. I love a great book.

I really love one of The Great Books of the Western World. They not only educate me, they enlighten me, make me more aware of how important understanding philosophy is to one’s life.

I also read and enjoy books that inspire and empower practical aspects of my life.

Set yourself up on a reading program to read at least two books per week. Find an hour or two to read everyday. You have the time — you just aren’t making it. Create this habit and it will change your life. If you have to get up an hour or two earlier than you normally to do your reading, do so. Increasing your knowledge and bettering your life takes discipline.

Turn the TV off. Leave it off if you don’t have the discipline to only watch quality stuff that empowers your life. Better yet — throw the damn thing out. It never makes the quality of your life or your attitude any better when you watch the news or the junk programming (basically what ALL TV is today). Every time you watch this crap, it makes your attitude and quality of life worse.

Don’t read garbage. Garbage in your mind, garbage out through your thoughts and actions.
