I recently got to spend some time with Chicken Soup for the Soul Co-Creator, Mark Victor Hansen.
During our time, I asked Mark one habit a person can act on to take their career to the next level.
Mark’s response, “I would ask everyone to read self-help action books, and biographies and autobiographies of people who overcame the odds.”
I didn’t read my first book until I was 27 years of age, and since that time I have learned that each minute I have invested (in time) into feeding my mind has been returned itself many, many times over.
The question though is, how does one decide what to read, watch or listen to first?
I asked that same question to bestselling author Susan Manion MacDonald years back, after she was able to expand her mind enough in two months to put her cancer into complete remission (with just those two months left to live).
Her reply was essentially, “What I did was asked the people who I knew were reading, (watching or listening) the right things, what I should feed my mind first. When the same answer came back multiple times, that’s what I read (watched or listened to) first.”
Having this answer, I’d love to ask – what will you read, watch or listen to next? Perhaps it’s time to see which books, TED Talks or Shows have impacted the most lives, and dive in.
Until then, here’s to your success, Corey
