The Benefits And Power of Good Literature.

The success of every successful individual in the world today can be traced to some form of literature that influenced and impacted their lives positively.
It could be a biography, and autobiography, a manuscript, a movie (which was once a book/manuscript), a religious literature (eg. the Koran and the Bible) or perhaps they were told a life story of someone which motivated and influenced them to success, this story they heard although it's not in print is a potential book. (we all like success stories, there is something about stories that move us).
This raises the question, which books are you reading?
A wise man once said, ''where you will be in five years from now is determined largely by the friends you keep and the books you read''.
How true!
Our friends rub off on us and books affect our mindset. These two choices can make or break you.
There can be a correlation between the friends we keep and the books we read.
It's very likely you will pick friends who have a common goal with you or who share similar interests.
The kind of books you take an interest in reading can also determine your friendships, since you will likely bond better with people who will read what you like to read.
Books are so important,the secret of the ages are hidden in books somewhere.
The strategy you need is written in a book somewhere.
The inspiration and motivation to keep going can come by reading an inspired book.
Good literature has educated us over the years, entertained us, increased our knowledge, our know how, helped our development and civilization, and created business and career opportunities as well and enlightening us and helping our skill aquisition.
Good literature can open the door to a totally new world for us and determine our quality of life.
It's believed that President Barack Obama's successful 2008 Presidential campaign which is still regarded as the best Presidential campaign in American history, was inspired by his reading Saul Alinsky's book 'Rules For Radicals'. Saul Alinsky is believed to be the father of modern day community organizing as we know it. It's believed the community organizing strategies in that book made Barack Obama emerge as President of the new world. 
Dexter Yager is a man who is living a successful lifestyle and has influenced and produced more millionaires than perhaps anybody else through an educational system he and his wife Birdie put together to keep them inspired and to help other people achieve their own dreams and millionaire status on the platform of  Amway networking marketing.
Dexter and Birdie recall that the book which did it for them and changed their lives for ever is the success classic 'The Magic Of Thinking Big' by Dr David J. Schwartz
Many motivational and successful speakers in the world today credit their careers and success to books like 
'The Power Of Positive Thinking' by Norman Vincent Peale and 'Think and Grow Rich' by Napoleon 
Hill.Where would these men be if these authors didn't write these books.I am sure there are books in you to.I read the Bible and I am always inspired by it. Like everybody else I like stories. Stories sell, and stories put ideas in our head.

The Bible is loaded with lots of inspiring stories that can motivate and inspire you! No wonder
 it's history's best selling book!

Many celebrities have discovered what I am sharing with you. That's why they sell their stories 

by writing autobiographies or they assign someone to write a biography of them, the idea is to 

capitalize on their fame and make a profit by telling their story. Smart.

Which books are you reading?
