Are you reading books?. Did you know that reading books can actually transform your life, that can help maintain brain health, make you smarter and actually make you healthier.

Do you want to know how?. Keep reading

Here are some things you may not know about reading books.

No1. Reading stimulates the Brain. Keeping your brain engaged in a good book can prevent it from losing it’s natural power. Your brain is like a muscle, if you don’t use it, you will start to lose the use of it. People watch so much TV these days, their brain doesn’t have to think. Watching is not the same as thinking.

People watch so much TV these days, their brain doesn’t have to think. Watching is not the same as thinking. By reading and following the text, your brain is fully engaged, your imagination is in full flow.

In some cases, reading can assist in helping prevent Alzheimers and Dementia.

No 2. It reduces Stress. Reading can often combat the effects of modern living. It helps take your mind off stressful situations, thus reducing your stress. People who read tend to be more relaxed. You can get get lost in a good book whether it’s factual or fiction.

No 3. Increase your Knowledge. The most interesting people tend to be people who are always learning new things. You increase your knowledge by reading factual books. We don’t remember everything we learn but reading a book several times over can imprint it’s content on the brain and turn you into a  very knowledgeable person.

No 4. Expand your vocabulary. One of the reasons that readers appear smarter than many non readers, is that they tend to have a much wider range of vocabulary. Books give you a chance to explore and use new words. Reading books can actually help you speak better, which is good if you are creating audios and videos, or just want to be a better speaker.

No 5. It can improve memory. As you read, your subconscious mind goes back and forth to find associations from your past. This helps improve memory. By constant reading, your memory will improve.

No 6. Improved focus and concentration. Many people suffer from ADD, Attention Defecit Disorder. This type of behaviour increases our stress levels and lowers productivity. Reading a book focuses on one thing, the book. Even reading on a crowded train or bus for 15-20 minutes a day will vastly improve focus and concentration.

No 7. Improved Writing Skills. Show me any top writer who does not read books. Reading can improve writing. Observe how top writers write and model other people’s writing styles until you develop a unique style all of your own. If you read regularly, you should never be short of content ideas. I often use books for ideas for my blog posts.

Tip. If a book has 12 chapters, you potentially have 12 blog post ideas. From each chapter, take the main topic and two sub topics. You now have 3 main points to write about in your blog post. Some books have 20 or more chapters.. keep buying books and you’ll never run out of ideas to create content about.

Peace and prosperity

3 STINKY Secrets on How To STOP Procrastinating

Procrastinating.  Most of us do it., but Why? why do we procrastinate?, . Hmm, I got thinking about this the other day as I went through an old folder.I had been hanging on to this folder for years. In this folder were dozens and dozens of business ideas. Some going  back years.

I had been hanging on to this folder for years. In this folder were dozens and dozens of business ideas. Some going  back years.They were all projects that I never really go around to doing. In a nutshell, procrastination STINKS!..

Watch the video first. It will give you an overview of how damaging procrastination can be. Then read the rest of this post to reveal those four STINKY secrets.. and believe me, they do stink!..

STOP Procrastinating – Work With Keith  

Stinky Secret 1. Trying to be Perfect. 

For some people. If it isn’t “perfect” then it’s not going out. This is crazy. All this does is put something on “hold” that was perfectly OK to send out and be seen.

Most products, videos, blog posts etc, etc are far from “perfect”. If people had waited and waited until a perfect version was found, the world would have been deprived of many great inventions.

SIDENOTE: Put it out and improve so you can present version 2 at a later date.. If it’s a product, you can sell the new version as an “add on” or give it to existing customers as a free update.

Videos. These are never perfect.

Blog posts. Get them out. You’re not writing a book. This is a blog post.

Stinky Secret 2. Self Sabotage.

Hmm, this is a tough one to take in. Sometimes, people procrastinate because of something much deeper, they do not feel worthy. They  self sabotage themselves by putting things off  indefinitely, so as to not face potential criticism from others.

SOLUTION: Realize that this is an imperfect world we live in. The people who make the most money in this life are not necessarily the best at what they do, they just went ahead and did it.

It’s better to be perfectly imperfect than to not do anything. Version 1.0 is far better than version 0.0 (Brendan Bruchard).

Stinky Secret 3. You just don’t like the Activity. 

Sometimes, we agree to do things because it seems the right thing to do. We do however really often want to do things we like doing, and at first glance, sometimes the things that are required of us seem to be things we dislike.

This tends to make people want to procrastinate if there is no instant gratification. We are so used to doing things we like in our “routine” that anything new starts to ring alarm bells in our heads.

SOLUTION: You weren’t born liking the things you like now. You grew into it. This can be said for anything, why spend your life only liking 6 things when you could like 12 or 24?. Often or not, we can surprise ourselves by doing things out of sufferance and actually enjoy doing them once we do them over and over.

Ask yourself a question:

What is putting “x ” off, costing me?. Both now and in the future. It may be something like putting off making your first video online. What is this costing you in future business, future sales. Will it stop you getting to where you want to go, or seriously affect your progress.

These questions need to be answered.

Get a piece of paper. Compile a list of all the things you have put off since “forever” in the left  hand column.  Then in the right hand column, write down next to each thing, exactly what this is costing you, by putting it off.

You might be surprised.

I hope this post helps you to act more on your decisions. A Decision to do something is only as good as the action that follows. You can decide to do things all day long, but if you don’t actually give that decision legs and go do it, you’ll stay the same. Nothing will change.

Until next time.. speak soon

All the best
