"The more you learn,
 The more you Earn" -Warren Buffer

It just came in to my mind last night that "Why do rich people Read?" Some people will say that rich people only don't read even students and kids read books. I agree with you, but my prime focus today is on the Entrepreneurs. The one who are mostly Drop outs. Do you ever thought that where do they get knowledge of all they do from. 

BOOKS ... Yes you guessed it right. These are the only source of knowledge which have made Bill Gates, Mark Zukerberg, Elons Musk, Warren Buffet etc.... 

I have also read many millionaire books like "Think and Grow Rich" , "The four hour Work a Week" , "Rich Dad Poor Dad" etc... The result I got from these were the knowledge and not the formal EDUCATION which school gives. 

In my school days I was the one who was the first rank holder but from the back. Hahaha... it sounds funny but I am really proud of myself. After reading several books it it is very clear to me that school marks doesn't matters at all. Although I use to get scoldings and my teachere considered me as a failure and believed that I will not do anyhing in my life. But today I hold 5 Websites and 2 offline business which has made me millionare at the age of 28. This is the reason why I want to motivate other people as well. 

The books I read personally  has touched me and made it very clear that one day I will be in Forbes Billionare list. I will make it very clear to my teachers that I am not at all a looser that will be proud of me. 

Some people commented me : "Why my blogs are based only on money and business based on wealth ?" I would like to make it clear that If Bill Gates, Warren Buffer, Jack Ma are respected in the world it is just because of money and money gave them place in the Forbes Magazine. "Money was my problem so I am working to solve my problem. Hence money has given me freedom" 

Ok... Let's get back.  

Here is the list of five people who are successful and they read a lot-

1. Warren Buffer 

 Warren Buffet claims to read 500 pages a day. He’s stated that he devotes about 80% of his time to reading. Perhaps it isn’t a coincidence that he’s one of the richest men in the world.

2. M. J. Demaco 

M.J. Demarco is a self-made millionaire and author of the book: The Millionaire Fastlane. In that book he talks about the importance of reading and suggests that a book a week is a good target to set. He also hosts a recommended bookshelf on his website.

3. Mark Cuban

Mark Cuban, another successful billionaire, reads 3 hours a day. That adds up to about 1,000 hours a year. Say the average book takes 5 hours to read, that means Cuban is reading 200 books a year.

4. Bill Gates 

The man who unleashed Microsoft onto the world, Bill Gates, reads 50 books a year. The result? At the time of this writing he is currently the wealthiest person in the world with a cool $78,000,000,000.

5. Mark Zukerberg

In 2015 Mark Zuckerberg pledged to a read a book every two weeks. While this may be less ambitious than other billionaires on this list, some books on his list are long and complex. Like Sapiens which has become a hit in Silicon Valley.


Wondered why so many rich and successful people swear by reading every day? As habits go, reading is a very popular choice amongst the rich and successful.

Reason 1 – Readings help increase your focus

In a world where everyone is multi-tasking and a phone is beeping every minute, to sit down and read for a consistent amount of time takes focus. Even just reading for 20 minutes a day is helping your mind to focus on just the one task at hand. That discipline can then be applied to other areas of life.

Reason 2 – Reading helps you to continually learn

So many people are taught to get a good formal education and then you will become successful and rich. In reality, it is very far from the truth. Increasingly we hear stories of the “dropouts” who go on to achieve great things. The reason is because becoming successful isn’t about being a Straight A student. It is about creativity, innovation, determination and much more.

Reading helps you learn about concepts the school system never taught you about such as how to actually manage your finances, how to network like a pro and how to master your elevator pitch.

And reading also allows you to learn things that weren’t even known when you were at school. The reason why continual learning is EVEN more important now than ever before is because the world is changing so quickly. To be successful you need to stay up-to-date and reading supports that ongoing learning process.

Reason 3 –  Reading helps you to be reflective

Life is a long lesson and
as I explained in reason 2 reading is great for teaching you, but that is only half of the learning process. The other reason why reading is so powerful is because it can challenge you. When you read the right book you are forced to reflect on why society is a certain way, why you act in a certain manner and whether you practice what is being taught in a book.

It is this reflective practice, which really helps people to succeed in life. It is through spending the time to delve deeper and really explore who you are that helps you become the best version of yourself possible.

That is 3 of many reasons why reading why rich and successful people read every day.
