Excerpts from the book ‘Think & Gain Financial Freedom’ by Wilbert R. Mutoko
You can blame colonization, your parents, siblings or misfortune for your current circumstances. But believe me, it is not going to help you. You need to arise and develop you. You are the difference maker that you have waited for for so long.
Successful people read at least one new financial book once per month. You however, should not just emphasize on reading books on finance alone.
It is not good to concentrate on one area of life because if you neglect learning about health, family, career, business and relationships; you will end up being successful financially but with an ailing body, struggling business, spiritual stagnation, failing at school or sick marriage.
Great people endeavor to develop all-round success. That is financial success, spiritual success, marital success, career success, academic success, health success etc.
By reading books in each of these areas, you end up having a balanced life, and you enjoy true success.
I therefore would like to encourage you to read at least one book per week. If you do not like reading, you can buy audio books to boost your knowledge and skills.
So if you really want this week to be better than last week, learn what you didn’t know last week.
Similarly if you want this month or year to be more successful than last month or year, you must learn what you did not know then.
Such learning usually comes through personal development – reading books and watching good teaching videos or listening to audio cds.
The difference between successful people and others is what they know and what they do with what they know.
