According to my research, it takes the average self-made millionaire 32 years to become rich. Those who achieve this status have adopted the daily habit of reading for self-improvement every day. According to my study, 85% read two or more books every month. If you do the math, that’s 768 books. But these millionaires don’t read just any old books. They read books that will help them grow and learn. Here’s a list of the types of books self-made millionaires read:
- Career-related books.
- How-to books.
- History books.
- Biographies of successful people.
- Self-help books.
- Health-related books.
- Current events books.
- Books on memory improvement and learning.
- Psychology books.
- Leadership books.
- Science books.
- New age books that offer inspiration and create a positive mental outlook.
The key to success in life is growing your knowledge base and skills. Devote 30 minutes or more each day to learning by reading books. If you do, it will set you apart from the competition, as most people do not read. Reading every day puts you in the top 5% of the crowd.
