Books Can Change Your Life: Only If You Do This 1 Thing

There are no excuses for not being successful in any aspect in your life. I’m not just talking about finances, but also in our day-to-day life!

If you’re broke, it’s because you want to be broke. If your life is boring, it’s because you’re satisfied with being bored. If you lack confidence, it’s because you don’t feel it’s important enough to fix.

When I made the decision to start my own business 20 years ago, I had absolutely no experience. My mom and I wanted to start a business selling religious apparel online.

There was only one problem … E-commerce websites back then easily cost anywhere from $5,000 – $15,000 bucks.

Like most folks starting a business, we didn’t have that type of cash; and it’s at this point where most folks would quit.

Not me.

I took my butt on down to the local bookstore and purchased a few books on website design. Back then, Dreamweaver was the software of choice for building websites. I learned everything I needed to know about building a website through books.

Back then, many of the books had the CD-ROM in it where you could watch tutorials and get more in-depth instruction.

In a matter of weeks, I got the basics I needed to build the website and we eventually launched.

It was trial and error throughout the entire process, but we managed to build a very successful business.

That business was the starting point that led me into many other business opportunities over the years.

I bring this up because my life changed because of books … Books quite literally saved my life.

No matter what it is you’re dealing with, there’s a book on the topic.

  • Failed marriage: there’s a book on how to save and rebuild your marriage and make it better.
  • Poor money manager: there’s a book on how to save and budget properly
  • Wanna buy and flip real estate: Somebody shared all of their how to experience in real estate investing book
  • Want to be a better parent: A counselor somewhere with 50 years of experience has written a book on the topic

And this is what I like most about books … Some guy or lady, took 20, 30, or 40 years of their experience and packaged it all up inside of a book.

You’d easily spend thousands of dollars in consulting fees to get meaningful conversations and advice from these people. If you tried to learn and figure this stuff out on your own, it could literally take you 5, 10, or 15 years to get all of the bugs figured out.

But within the pages of a book, it’s all right there.

This One Thing Was the Game Changer

The reason things worked out so well for me 20 years ago when I needed a website, I took action.

I didn’t just read the book … I sat down and I actually applied the knowledge I was learning from the book. I went out and purchased the recommended software. I even found a local weekend class and attended it.

Reading and gaining all of this knowledge is pointless if you don’t use and apply it.

Whatever you want to learn, there is a book on the topic.

Wanna learn how to raise chickens in your backyard? There’s a book telling you everything you need to do to raise chickens. I know this because my neighbor in Florida did this. I woke up one day and out of the blue, there were chickens in her backyard, lol.

So what do you want to learn? How do you wish to change your life?

There’s a book on the topic … Most books can be purchased for less than $20 bucks nowadays. The return on that investment is immeasurable if you act on the instruction in the book.

I’d encourage you to pick one aspect of your life you wish to improve on. Or, make a decision on what you’d like to do in the next (or current) phase of your life. Then find two books on the topic and order it.

Amazon.com is a great place to start.

In an effort to get my on-again and off-again diabetes under control, I purchased two books, The Diabetes Code, and The Complete Guide to Fasting by Dr. Jason Fung.

These books were game changers. I implement right away and I lost about 15 pounds inside of 2-weeks. My blood sugar levels dropped and stayed in the normal range within 2-weeks.

But then I slipped back into my old habits (so I’ll likely buy another book on ‘Habits’, lol).

But it worked well when I implemented the information provided by the doctor who likely spent over $500,000 – $1,000,000 to go to medical school … That doesn’t factor in his 20+ years of experience in medicine…

It cost me less than $40 books to tap into his knowledge.

So … What will you do? Please share what two books you’ll purchase right now (not tomorrow, but right now).

Don’t put this off.

Remember, this only works if you take action and implement!

How to Create YOUR Dream Life in Less Than 24-Hours Guaranteed!

Each day we’re alive is a gift from God. And how you manage the next 24-hours of your life will determine the quality of life you’ll have.

For most of us, everyday is a full day of responsibilities. Life happens. Kids need this. Our spouse needs that. The car needs fixing. Debt is rising and before you know it, life is controlling you. When in reality, we’re suppose to be in control.

God has given us dominion over our days. Which means we literally rule our day. We have power over each hour in the 24-hour period given to us.

Some of us may choose to punch a clock for 8 hours. Others may choose to sit on their butts and do absolutely nothing but sleep and play video games all day.

Regardless to what we do — it’s ours and ours alone.

In this video, I’ll reveal how you can take control over your days and create the lifestyle you want. You’ll learn how to

3 Reasons to Compile Your Bucket List Before You Die!

What is a bucket list?

A bucket list is a list of things one hopes to accomplish before they die…

Essentially, you write up the list, and then you check them off one-by-one as you complete them … I’m a big believer in setting goals. Without goals, you wake up each day without focus. Goals give us something to strive for.

They give us direction … and if you don’t have a bucket list, I’d encourage you to write yours out today.

Here are 3 great reasons to start now…

  1. It makes you look at what you really want: Oftentimes, we wake up each day doing the same old stuff. For many of us, we really don’t know what we want to do. We lack direct and focus. And one of the benefits of creating a bucket list is that it forces us to sit down and map out some of those things we want. Once we know what we want, we can then come up with a plan to get us going in the right direction.
  2. You live a much more satisfying life: When you’re able to pursue your passions, you’re able to enjoy a much more rewarding and satisfying life. You have purpose. You have ambition. You have drive.
  3. Your confidence increases and you continue to strive for more: Once you start slashing things off your bucket list, you start to add new ones. And the more you slash off, and the more you add new ones,  the more your confidence grows. And before you know it, you’ll be achieving some amazing things as your life continues to move forward. You become fearless. You become confident. You’re living life without fear!

How to Achieve Your Most Outrageous Goals and Dreams This Year!

Your present level of knowledge has gotten you to where you’re at now, but your FUTURE will require much more than your present requires of you.

Before I started setting goals, I was all over the place.

I was unfocused and didn’t have a clue as to what I’d do from day to day and my businesses suffered because of that.

I’d literally start a business, make money, and midway through, I’d quickly abandon it to start another one based on some wild idea I got in the middle of the night.

But I no longer have that problem anymore…

I’m focused. Disciplined and determined to see my projects/goals through.

Watch the video below to discover how to map out your future and get it!

Speak it Into Existence: The Power of Your Words to Create a Life You Desire!

I have a story for you about the power of the tongue and how it can literally speak things into existence.

A word of caution here folks… When you ask for something, you better be very specific, because you will get exactly what you asked for… Along with the things you didn’t ask for too!

This story relates to how the wife I asked for came into my life. The entire process shocked me and showed me how one can literally get what they ask for in life if they’re willing to “speak it into existence”.

I think after this story, you’ll agree that this was in no way a coincidence or a chance thing.

I was a shy young lad growing up and approaching women always made me nervous and break out into cold sweats. So for me, dating revolved around classified ads and telephone dating services… This was before the Internet became BIG.

I was born in Mississippi and raised all over the United States. My dad was in the Army and every 2-3 years we would move to a new place. In addition to the constant moves, we would go back to Mississippi every few years to see my grandparents.
