My readers and followers are very lucky today, because today I’m gonna share with you the Top 3 books that will change and improve your life. If you are first time and haven’t read these books I will be discussing you will surely benefit from this topic. To those who have already read these books, you know what I am talking about and you can just drop your thoughts and addendum in the comment section. Let’s proceed.
Reading is very essential in our lives. It moulds our personality, beliefs and experiences. By reading we expand our knowledge and skills, we learn new things we have no idea at all. It broadens our perception and perspective, and it draws opportunities and enlarge our horizon.
Is reading an advantage?
Reading is very important in our lives in order to live victoriously. We gain knowledge and understanding about life and learn information on how to overcome challenges and succeed in life. In order to get a good information from reading my advise is we have to be selective with what we are reading. If you are reading gossip magazine, newspaper or social media feeds what kind of information will you get from all these stuffs? Do you think it will improve your life? You know already the answer. When you are choosing something to read, you have to ask yourself this question. “Is this valuable information?” ” Does it add value in my life?” If the answer is “No” put it down and find a good reading material. We have to be smart in what kind of information we are giving attention because the information we are absorbing from reading affects our minds, our habits and beliefs. And all these habits and beliefs mould our life and experiences. Like what they said, you are what you read. “Tell me what type of book do you read and I will tell you who you are.” It is important to read a good book only because “What we read determines who we become”
For those who don’t love to read if you want to improve your life this year, it is time for you to start reading now at least this 3 books that I will share with you in the succeeding text.
Below are the top 3 books I highly recommend that can improve your life.
I have listed first the Bible because this is a good foundation in life based on my experiences. As mentioned in the Scripture (2 Timothy 3:16) “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.”
This is our guide for a righteous living and believing. It is important to read and meditate the scripture first before reading other books. Below are some verses exceprt from the Bible that are significant.
“People perish because of lack of knowledge”
“Seek first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
“Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them.
Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you.
The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom.
Though it cost all you have, get understanding.”
“My son, pay attention to what I say; turn your ear to my words.
Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart;
for they are life to those who find them and health to one’s whole body.
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
Keep your mouth free of perversity; keep corrupt talk far from your lips.
Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you.
Give careful thought to the[a] paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways.
Do not turn to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil.”
This book is already enough in order for us to understand the purpose of our existence and how to live a victorious life. I believe all successful people in the history, author and philanthropist are wide reader. I’m sure they never missed to read the Bible as they love seeking knowledge and wisdom. In fact, some of them they learned a vast knowledge from the Bible and quoting the verses in their testimony of success and used in their own written books. But the Bible is more than success in this earthly life because we are spirit being who are given an eternal life in heaven by God.
Once you read and understand the Bible, your life will already change and improve because the Bible is already complete and reliable as the basic standard of living. But if you want to read more books as it is already your lifestyle, you can read then the next two books.
Think Rich And Grow Rich is one of the best selling self-help book by Napoleon Hill, an American author. I believe all successful people have read this book and have great impact in their lives and create a difference to the world. You will learn from this book the power of your mind and thinking and how it is important to have good thoughts all the time.
3. The Secret
The Secret is also a great publication and one of the number 1 selling book nowadays. This book is almost the same with “Think Rich and Grow Rich”. This explains about the Law of Attraction. Having a positives thoughts and beliefs is important because what you focus on with your mind it will become your reality and experiences in your physical world.
Once you read these three books you can say that there are certain part that is relevant to each other. But the most precious book is the Bible as our foundation and in obtaining knowledge and wisdom. The information of the other books scattered all over the world written by famous and successful people is in the Bible already, some just don’t want to acknowledge it, but there are authors who are believing and mentioning the Scriptures in their artwork.
These 3 books have one message in common. Here it is; in “Scriptures (Bible)” in “Romans 12:2 – Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will. While in the other 2 books “Think Rich and Grow Rich” and “The Secret” they are also teaching to have a pure mind and good thoughts as this plays a huge impact in our lives whether you are aware of it or not. If you read Bible and the other 2 books you will understand what I am talking about.
APPLICATION & CONCLUSION
Reading first the scripture but make sure to pray and humble yourselves first before to God will give you enlightenment and will have a great impact in your lives and to your family. I suggest to read first the Book of Proverbs in the Bible. This book talks about gaining Wisdom and Understanding and its importance. When you have wisdom you will understand everything why it is happening. When you understand something, you know how to deal and react wisely in your circumstances and you will learn the secret on how to live a victorious life.
