Readers are Leaders, and Leaders are Readers! Do You Agree?

  • Since times immemorial, the emphasis being laid on acquiring education has always stood right at the top of our priorities. Right from medieval times to the present-day technology-driven advanced world, the emphasis placed on education and learning hasn’t changed much. Information technology-driven innovations, inventions, developments, and growth are so dynamic that it takes monumental efforts to stay attuned to the happenings around us. It goes without saying that if we fail to stay in keeping our antennas of learning up, we are bound to be left behind by the most indulgent generation that dares to take on challenges with great aplomb and verve. Otherwise, the fear of missing out on wonderful occurrences will stalk us forever.

  • It is also fascinating to know how the mind works. We are aware of the conscious, subconscious, and semiconscious mind defining our individual being in more than one way. Not for nothing it is mentioned by the wisemen that we are what we think we are. One may be blessed with an acutely intelligent brain that propels us to achieve something out of the ordinary. However, if one fails to believe anything can be achieved by giving up even before taking up the endeavor means the defeatist mentality is at work big-time. Remember, thinking about intelligence is much more important than the intelligence that you might have. Intelligence without a firm mind committed to traversing that extra mile to achieve the avowed objective amounts to nothing. Period.
  • Now, some of us are not blessed with natural intelligence but must strive to acquire it through available resources like reading or getting inspired by an influencer which would otherwise become a handy characteristic trait to possess. There is yet another way to acquire a semblance of accepted knowledge from a renowned practitioner or by proactively cultivating a habit of reading books filled with wisdom from acclaimed exponents. Inarguably, books and/or literature, or for that matter epics and traditional scriptures have had a profound influence on humankind for ages. The wisdom passed over generations is still relevant and ready to pass on the knowledge to those who wish to acquire it for their own good.

  • How many of you would concur with me when I mention that all leaders are readers, and all readers are leaders? I am sure most of us would concur here. Cultivating a reading habit is not only a worthwhile endeavor for the overall good of human beings but also acts as a building block in realizing our potential to the best of our abilities. As mentioned above, most of us are not blessed with inherently welcoming abilities, intelligence, or capabilities to achieve the unexpected. Nonetheless, diligently indulging in reading those inspirational stories and fables of great achievers of yore would surely propel us to concretize our dilemmas into actionable efforts. An hour of reading whatever is worthwhile is par for the course living measure. What say you?
