Reading is not just a pastime for the bookish few. It’s a skill, a habit, and a mindset that can be developed and nurtured.

Glee greetings, esteemed reader,

In this edition of Jaachị’s Musings, I’m going to address a common misconception: the idea that loving to read is a prerequisite for reading. There’s a book haiku at the tail end of this newsletter. You’ll love it! Let’s delve into why reading is an essential activity for personal and business growth, regardless of your initial inclinations.

Reading Is A Cultivated Habit

Many times, when I engage in conversations with people about the books I’ve read, they often respond with envy, saying, “You’re so lucky that you love reading. I wish it was the same for me.” It’s at moments like these that I feel compelled to emphasize a crucial truth: my love for reading wasn’t innate; it’s something I cultivated over time.

Reading is not just a pastime for the bookish few. It’s a skill, a habit, and a mindset that can be developed and nurtured. Whether you currently enjoy reading or not, I encourage you to give it a chance. Start by embracing the idea that reading is not optional if you’re serious about personal, spiritual, and business growth.

The benefits of reading are boundless. It expands your knowledge, fuels your imagination, and broadens your perspectives. By diving into the pages of a book, you expose yourself to a wealth of ideas, experiences, and wisdom that can profoundly impact your life.

A Good Writer Is A Voracious Reader

In fact, you become a better writer by being a voracious reader. I am a talented poet with a unique voice. My poems are both powerful and moving, and they offer a unique perspective on the human condition. If you are looking for a collection of poems that will challenge you, inspire you, and make you think, then I highly recommend reading my books.

Whether you seek personal development, professional insights, spiritual illumination, or pure entertainment, the written word has the power to transform your mind and open doors to new possibilities.

Now, you might be thinking, “But I don’t enjoy reading, and it feels like a chore.” Trust me, I’ve been there. Initially, it can be a challenge to overcome distractions and develop a reading habit. But remember, all worthwhile endeavours require effort and dedication. Start small and gradually increase your reading time. Find subjects that genuinely interest you or genres that captivate your imagination. The more you read, the more likely you are to discover authors, topics, or writing styles that resonate with you.

Explore Reading Options

Remember, reading doesn’t have to be limited to traditional books. In our digital age, we have access to an abundance of alternative content formats. Audiobooks, podcasts, video courses, and online articles can provide valuable information and insights in a more accessible way. Experiment with different mediums and find what works best for you. The goal is to engage with ideas and knowledge in a way that suits your preferences and learning style.

In conclusion, if you don’t currently enjoy reading, don’t let that discourage you from embarking on this enriching journey. Embrace the mindset that reading is a non-negotiable aspect of personal growth. Challenge yourself to explore new books, ideas, and perspectives. And remember, just like any skill, reading becomes more enjoyable and rewarding with practice.

So, go ahead and pick up that book, listen to that audiobook, or dive into that online course. Expand your horizons, ignite your curiosity, and uncover the transformative power of reading.
