“Everything you need to know has already been written.”

There are two ways of learning- mentors and mistakes. One is hard. One is easy. Why spend a lifetime, and a lifetime worth of money, trying to solve a problem, when you can spend a few dollars and a few hours reading a book to get the answer. Everything you need to make your life better and easier has already been written. And, it’s all available to you and is easily accessible. Everything you need is within your reach.

Here are some tips to help motivate you to begin your library…

  • Every home valued at $250,000 or more has a library.
  • Every millionaire reads at least one non-fiction book a month.
  • To get started building your life changing, mind enhancing library, check out your local USED bookstore. I have found some wonderful books, at incredibly low prices, at local USED bookstores, and so can you. I’m not saying “Don’t buy new books,” because I have bought plenty of new books. Just check a used bookstore first.
  • Go to the library. Did you know that only three percent of the people in America have a library card? A library card is FREE!!! You can read thousands of excellent books and not have to spend a dime of your money. You can learn any skill, any new language, and get an education at no charge.
  • “It isn’t what the book costs; it’s what it will cost if you don’t read it. The book you don’t read won’t help.” — Jim Rohn
  • “I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.” — Groucho Marx (1890 – 1977)
  • “If a man empties his purse into his head, no man can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.” — Benjamin Franklin
  • “Words do two major things: They provide food for the mind and create light for understanding and awareness.” — Jim Rohn

Below are links to pages with lists of some of the excellent books and articles that we highly recommend. New books and articles will be added all the time, so make sure to check back often.

Personal Excellence

Excellence means that you do more than you need to do, not because you are asked, but because you desire.

Excellence is a choice, not a gift.

Excellence does not compete with others; it simply chooses to make others better.

The essence and fragrance of excellence is evaluating what others are not doing and choosing to become what is lacking.

Excellence is going ten extra miles when others are satisfied. A person of excellence is passionate about serving those to whom they are assigned.

A person of excellence cannot be brought down and looks for no encouragement, but rather, looks for others to encourage.

When you are a true person of excellence, you shine regardless of the circumstances surrounding you.

Excellence takes you to a different level of priorities, above your own needs and/or weaknesses.

Movies & Videos
