10 Week Book Challenge

President_Roosevelt_Reading_a_BookLeaders are Readers, and Readers Become Leaders. All great leaders throughout history have had one thing in common: They have read voraciously.

CEOs of Fortune 500 companies read an average of four to five books a month. Even more impressive is that some of the most successful leaders throughout history were known to read one book every single day.

Abraham Lincoln who only had one year of formal education credited his appetite for reading with his success. Teddy Roosevelt was rumored to actually read two or more books a day, he would read a book every day before breakfast. If he didn’t have any official business in the evening, he would read two or three more books. Thomas Jefferson had one of the most exhaustive personal libraries of his time prior to donating it to the Library of Congress (which many joked Teddy Roosevelt had read).

I’d like to invite you to join me on the 10 Week Book Challenge. Our aim here is to read a book per week. The comment section is open to comments, queries, and thought provoking conversation.

In approximately Two and a Half months we will have completed 10 books. All of the books have been hand chosen tried, tested, and proven. If you do not like reading or haven’t even finished a book in your life I encourage you to get the audiobooks to listen to. If you don’t have time wake up a little earlier or listen to the books while you drive. Reading is all a matter of self-discipline. If you can’t afford it email me at marlon@marlonpimienta.com and I can help you.

It is my opinion, that you will get the most out of the selections if you read them in the suggested format.

1. How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie
2. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey
3. As A Man Thinketh by James Allen
4. What You Say Is What You Get by Donn Gossett
5. The psychology of winning by Dennis Waitley
6. The Magic of Believing by Claude M. Bristol
7. The Go Getter by Peter Bernard Kyne
8. The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale
9. The Magic of Thinking Big by David J. Schwartz
10. See you at the top by Zig Ziglar

When you are through with the book challenge my hope is that you all find yourselves in a better place mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Praying that each and everyone of you is better off when you are done with the challenge than when you started. I also encourage you to read or listen to these books over and over again even after the book challenge.
