It’s day two of the week and I’m about to head out from Van Horn, TX on my way to Phoenix. I am sticking with my daily habit of getting the blog written, as well as other habits that keep my business running while I travel to reach another audience with RockStar ideas.
I wanted to touch on a habit that is so talked about, and when I travel it’s a habit that I often fail at. I want to ask you, what are you putting into your body? No, this is not a food blog, but in a way it is. When I am on the road I tend to eat at fast food places more and more. I started out my year by saying I would not eat at them, but with my travels I end up in towns that just don’t have good food selections.
Now let’s take that to another level and ask, what are we feeding our minds? I have taken the loads of TV I used to watch out; I still check out a movie on those movie channels, or watch news interviews of those friends who get TV time. But just like the fast food on the trip, a steady diet of just watching TV shows, or even Cable news TV is not the healthiest thing for the mind.
So today I want to share another habit that you should put into action to bring success to your business, and life: start a reading habit. Start with a few good books that will help you read and gather answers to the solutions you are looking for right now.
Maybe you already have a good reading habit since you are here reading one of the posts I put up. I read many other blogs every day. I have a few of them sent to my email so I’m able to read them from my iPad, or iPhone. I have a place on my blog where you can sign up and receive mine that way also.
I know a young man who made this change in his life: my friend Tom Ewer who writes the blog, “Leaving Work Behind.” Tom not only writes, but he also reads many blogs. He answers those people who post on his blog. I was happy to Tom’s 2012 list of top 100 blogs you should read in your life.
So you can find good reading in many places: good books, good blogs, magazine and newspaper articles that give you a better outlook on life. While I may be eating fast food on the road, I still feed my mind with great information about change and building a better life and business. Take that habit then add it to the rest of your daily habits and watch the changes happen.
