I think books are like people, in the sense that they’ll turn up in your life when you most need them.

Emma Thompson

Whenever we read the word ‘study’, we usually assume it refers to students only. But, ideally, we should be a student for life.

Learning is the most important thing in every aspect of our lives. Only through learning do we grow internally and externally.

The inner world and outer world is same.

So if you have to change your outer world, it is important to first work on your inner world. The inside manifests itself on the outside. The best way to study is to remind oneself that studying is not for a degree alone.

Adults may give excuses like they do not have the time or too busy. But who can be busier than a top businessman, CEO of top companies? They also read books to enhance their knowledge. You must develop a passion for knowledge.

Today the world is going toward a knowledge-based economy, a new-age economy based on people who create wealth from knowledge. For example, scientists, teachers, consultants, IT professionals, etc.

Even wealth is created through knowledge. So imagine what a wise and knowledgeable leader can accomplish. S/he will naturally focus on making the world a better place and the citizens more literate and educated.

Instead of giving excuses find out the solution to find out 10-15 mins to read a book. If you are a newbie to reading books then you can start your reading habit via reding one page daily and increase the page gradually.

The selection of books to start reading is also important. You should select a book in your area of interest. It will help you gain more knowledge and help to sustain your reading habit.

You can during lunchtime or evening tea time. Even you can read before going to bed. In short, you have to develop a desire to gain knowledge for your personal growth. Only then you can start reading.
