How Active Reading Changed My Life

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.
