Engaging with what I’m reading helped me grow in so many different ways. I’ll list a few:
- practice gratitude (Tim Ferriss’ books)
- put positive thoughts into the universe (‘The Power of the Subconscious Mind)
- be selfless (‘The Seat of the Soul’)
- treat people with kindness always (‘The Magic of Thinking Big’)
These might be small things, but they run on the background of my mind when I happen to do the opposite or when I notice the opposite in others. I then picture throwing that thought into the void of the back of my mind and I restart the thinking process with a positive approach.
Although learning and applying these values happened in a moment, reading the books and processing the information helped me get there. I am excited to draw lessons from other pieces of literature.
