I’ve always loved books but I’ve struggled with maintaining a reading habit. Often life got so busy that I’ve gone without reading a book for years.
However, I wanted to talk to you TODAY about how I’ve used this app called Audible to get back to reading…3 books a month.
The first thing that you need to do is understand the value of reading.
Research by Thomas Corley found that 86% of “self-made” millionaires read two or more books a month. 86% of the wealthy loved reading vs only 26% of the poor. That’s not only reading how-to books on business but also biographies, self-improvement, and even leisure reading. Billionaire Mark Cuban schedules three hours a day for reading and Bill Gates reads 50 books a year.
It’s no secret that bestseller books are designed to communicate excellent information in a consolidated format. No more googling for multiple articles, books are a one-stop-shop to learn everything about a certain niche. It’s a growth super pill.

Why then do we not read more books? Answer? We don’t prioritize it? Eight hours of work, an hour, maybe two of commute and if you have kids, phew! All the little things add up. How do you find the time to read every day?
Well, the answer for me at least is audiobooks and the tool I use is Amazon’s Audible. Audible is an Amazon company that produces and sells hundreds of thousands of popular audiobooks. If there’s a book out there, Audible has an audiobook version of it.
You see, when building a habit, it’s very important to start with a frictionless task and see results quickly so that we are inspired to continue. Audiobooks require very little effort to integrate into our daily lives. We can listen to it while doing our daily mundane chores or traveling. Audiobooks also help improve our pronunciation, fluency, memory, attention spans and boost our mental health.
Once I saw the results of constant learning and exposure, It re-kindled my passion for reading and I now read physical copies of books. I’m now re-reading The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod! Great book! One of my top 3 recommendations on my resource page over at my website.
I really believe reading on, in this case, listening to audiobooks has the potential to change your life and I wish I started earlier. I strongly recommend you check out the free trial that Audible has running right now.
Ask yourself this question, are you willing to risk your future on something as simple as a reading habit?
