“Years teach us more than books.” – Berthold Auerbach
Experience is the best teacher because books can only teach us so much. Life is all about taking action and chasing after whatever it is that you want or like to enjoy. If you sit around doing nothing all day, you won’t get much accomplished.
Books can be served as guides. Books can steer you off in different directions and spark your curiosity. Though, I do not recommend digging your nose into books all day. I recommend just going out there, reading a little to gain some knowledge and guidance, and then taking action.
Books can also serve as a shortcut to life’s obstacles. For example, if you lost your job and you’re having a hard time finding a new job, you may want to read a business-related book, or one of my personal favorites, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.
I like to use a combination of reading on the side while taking action to live my dreams. To find out more about the books I like to read and recommend, you can check out my About Me page.
Sometimes, we are afraid of experiencing new ideas because we like to feel safe and secure. However, you might want to try something new from the normal. Try a new cooking recipe. Or, do something fun and adventurous like skydiving! (;
If you have trouble experiencing new ideas, try dabbling into it a little at a time. Build up good habits and routines. Practice self-care. Then, go out there and conquer the world! 😀
