If you’re like me that hate reading books then read this. The popular saying that says “if you want to hide good thing from black man put it in a book” is nothing but the truth.
Anyway, I’ll tell you a story on how I hated reading books to an addict reader. You’ll learn the benefit of reading books that you can’t imagine.
When I was growing I was so unstable that I find reading books boring. In fact, I saw it as a complete waste of time.
But luck shone on me when I was in third year in the university. My department embarked on excursion, it was on our way I found a book with my junior titled “Let go whatever makes you stop” By John Mason.
Since we were on transit I had no option than to ask him for glance. And that was the greatest thing that ever happened to my life. I found the greatest motivation I needed in life in that book.
The book contains 52 nuggets. Each nugget is thought provoking. In fact, it was after reading the book I came to realize those things that were keeping me behind.
Reading the book gave birth to my regular reading of motivational and inspirational books. I started reading every piece of motivational book I see, until I settle for Donald Trump’s books.
I settled for Donald’s book because I really wanted to be a CEO of a company. knowing fully well that I will end up negotiating businesses in life therefore his books became my companion.
Invariably, Donald trump become my mentor. One thing I learnt from Donald was his bitter experience. As at 1992 Donald was indebted to the tune of $92 000,000,000 (Ninety Two Billion Dollars) and years latter he was able to recover.
In fact, he did not only recover but he became a billionaire over and over again. If you really want to know how he did it, go get his book titled “The art of coming back”
Something shocking happened. After applying all the strategies I learnt from reading Donald’s books, I was able to raise capital and started running an export business.
Money was flowing easily until I was duped. I lost millions of Naira on the 26th of June 2010 to a so called friend. In fact, I lost all I hard in life.
At this point the only thing that was running into my mind was, what are you living for? Just commit suicide and forget about everything. But the spirit I acquired as a result of reading came to work immediately.
I started hearing the whispering, do you remember your mentor? Did Donald Trump commit suicide? Start now thinking your own art of coming back.
Trump came back as you can. Yes it wasn’t easy but remembering that some people have successfully crossed this stage made me stood firm.
Do you see how reading books saved my life? Do you see why I became an addict reader? But it did not end there.
In my art of coming back, I stumbled on a book written by Robert G. Allen titled “Multiple stream of internet income”. The title arouses my curiosity of searching for how to make money online.
The 372 pages book revealed all the techniques, tips and trick of making money online from the comfort of your home.
The author made an amazing thing, which no one has ever done. He was able to make about a million dollars in a day from the internet.
He really shocked the world, which was why the book remains one of the New York best sellers of all time.
Click to Get Rich
As if that wasn’t enough, I came across the book titled “click to get rich” by Marc Ostrofsky. The book teaches everything about affiliate marketing and blogging.
It was so motivational that I was excited to start my own blogging and affiliate business immediately.
I combined the techniques I learnt from the book “multiple stream of internet income” with “Get Rich Click” guide and I set off to making money online.
How I Made it.
It wasn’t easy. I learnt making money online the hard way because I couldn’t afford hiring a mentor. And back then, online services were very expensive, therefore I couldn’t afford paying for services.
I started by learning how to design websites. After which I jumped into learning how to write web contents. As if that wasn’t enough, I started learning how to drive targeted traffic to the websites.
Yes, it wasn’t really easy but the effort really worth it. After many years of struggling on how to make money online I am happy today.
I can boldly tell you that I’m one of the most successful bloggers in Nigeria today. Courtesy of reading motivational and inspirational books. I may not have joined the league of millionaire bloggers but for sure I’m on my way.
