Our Mind and Mental Energy is one of our main resources to grow. It is essential to feed the mind with new and useful information on a daily basis. Your future is shaped based on what you feed your mind today. Here is the list of 5 things you can do to feed and grow your mind. Some of them can be done instantly and I encourage you to pick at least one and do it TODAY.
1. Books - Read books or Listen to Audio Books
Books are the easiest and most cost effective way to grow your mind. We have this strong delusion that we don’t have time to read books and yet we all spend a lot more than 20 minutes per day doing things that don’t matter in our growth, such as exploring social media.
Pick a book and commit yourself to finish at least one book per month. Dedicate 10 minutes to read a couple of pages and expand that to 20 minutes. Decide the time and the place that you’ll read and make it happen!
I also encourage you to download the “Audible” app from Amazon on your phone and start listening to audio books. I personally “read” Business Books or those that require note taking and I “listen” to autobiographies, books about our behavior and psychology, etc. I also sometimes listen to an audio book and I buy/read the printed version if I am extremely interested in the subject. The other way round works too when I read a book and then listen to the audio version to master the learnings!
No matter what you do, make sure to read/listen to books every single day until it becomes a habit.
I have created a downloadable list for you with suggested links and examples for each of the 5 ways to Feed and Grow Your Mind including some books that I recommend you to read. Make sure to download it and start watching and exploring!
