How reading has helped me


A book to read can change Life. 4 days ago I was reading the book "The effectiveness of successful people". I was so focused to understand every bit of information contained in it. I suddenly lose focus when I heard a knock on the door. On my way to the door I looked at the clock, it was 2:48 am. I was shocked because I never knew I`ve spent hours reading the book and someone knocking at that time.

I was silent to observe any voice or movement at the door. After 3 minutes the knocking continues.

I quickly brought out a long heavy stick and a hammer I had kept under my bed. I paused again and then I heard a voice saying "Francis open the door I was just wondering maybe you want to go to the prom with me!"

The voice sounded like my cousin`s, who lives in the neighborhood. JESUS! I replied as I was trying to open the door, just to be sure who it was, I asked her several questions and telling her how busy I was while looking for where I dropped my key, the hammer fell on my left leg and the stick fell on my right leg and as I tried to escape the stick dropping on my leg by carrying my hands up, the rotating ceiling fan hit my hand and cut 2 fingers. I stopped moving, lied on the floor enduring the pain which continued to increase.

I remembered the last passage I read in Chapters 2 and 3 which was clarifying the word "Be proactive" and "End in mind". When I felt like giving up I remembered those that love me and practiced the passage of the book I just read by seeing myself somewhere else that is, choosing my attitude in situations I have no control.

We have the power to develop our next step and future; needs, value, mission, principals, vision, and more, most especially our response to produce the desired result.

Always remember that between what happens to us at any moment is a space in which we have the freedom and power to choose the action/response that results in our happiness, growth, and goal. Always read to gain knowledge and be alive.
