If you look at socioeconomic studies for low income households, you
will find that they may have a copy of the National Enquirer or a
Bible in their homes. If you go to a medium income household
you will find a few books (usually by the toilet!) with a glossy
gossip magazine in the family room. But what do you think you will
find in high income household? A library of non-fiction books.
So the question we must ask is this: is the socioeconomic status
determined by what people read or does what people read bring the
status? I will guarantee you it is the latter.
All great leaders are readers. You will never grow spiritually,
emotionally or financially by watching TV news and reading the
tabloids. Remember there are only two things you can do with your
brainpower as it relates to time. You can either spend it, or
invest it. Time spent (wasted) is gone forever. Investment in the
form of learning creates a lifetime of payoff not only in knowledge,
but in income as well. Decide right now that you are going to
invest your greatest asset, which is your time, in learning and
studying things that will bring you closer to your desires.
