The importance of reading

Today we are going to discuss the importance of reading. Reading has been in our lives since the middle ages but it faded away in the begining of this century. Mainly under teenagers it isn't popular anymore. Therefore I wanted you to show the importance of reading. Because a lot of people don't see the use in books nowadays. So let's get started,

Reading has a lot of benefits to the mind. The first benefit is that the mind needs the practice of reading to sense the words it sees. It develops the ability to connect the words to images in the head. So how more you read how faster and better you will read. And it will give you a bigger arsenal of vocabulary.
Further reading create the ability to focus better and really listen to people in general. Because you train your brain to concentrate on one thing at a time.
It also improves your memory because when we read, we are using our memory muscle. Joseph ones used a great metaphor, which explains it all;

Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.

Beside the benefits for the mind, you can also personally take advantage of reading books. While reading you will see perspectives you never could see if you looked from your angle. You will discover lots of opinions and views on subjects, so you can decide which views or opinions you want to follow or not. This way you will have a clearer view of who you are and what your opinion is about a variety of subjects.
Experience will come with ever type of books, because every book goes deep in there subject. Novels will learn you about how other behave and how they react under different circumstances. Self-help books, which I recommend, will go in deep about how to solve daily problems. Biographies will show how hero's behaved and let you see how they achieved big things, mainly because of the hard work. So all books you read will allow you to gain experience.

To sum up, we read because it allows us to develop ourselfs in different ways;
1) Gives us a better focus at one thing at a time
2) Gives us a bigger arsenal of vocabulary
3) Improves your reading skills
4) Improves your memory
5) Gives us a better view of who we are
6) Gives us more experience

After all just pick up a book, it doesn’t better which one.
Because, at the end of the day, all the books will you more experience in life.
Look around you, there is so much to read so just start and you’ll find your path in the world of books and articles.

Why you should never compare yourself with other

I really was a shy twelve-year old (I know that is a long time ago). And during that time, I spent most of my school days comparing myself to others. But after a while, actually years, I finally opened my mind and saw that comparing really is a bad thing in life. Comparing is what sugar is for your health. It ruins attitude towards yourself. In my case, it really destroyed me. But, today I want to show you why you should not compare yourself, and where you should focus on. So let’s get started!

Comparing is never fair.
We all have a different past. We all are different.Maybe that someone has so much money because he started saving on an early age. As a result he has now more money, so what. Let your past be and focus on now. Or maybe your neighbor has a great six-pack. Don’t worry about it you are a good person, it doesn’t matter if you don’t have that six-pack. You will get there, if you want to. After all comparing will just never be fair. Because of the fact that we all are differe…
