Read Up. Speak Up and Rise Above the Ordinary

May 25, 2022 –

I think many people no longer read and others have lost the desire to read.

Reading is great for you. Applying what you read is better. As Socrates pointed out, “Employ your time in improving yourself by other men’s writings so that you shall come easily by what others have labored hard for.” Or as Roald Dahl proclaimed, “If you are going to get anywhere in life you have to read a lot of books.”

Many people speak up using information drawn from a shallow well. While others speak up and rise above the ordinary by using information drawn from a deep and boundless well.

Whether you are a man or a woman who cannot find their voice or just someone who is looking for that extra inspiration. Let the words John Lewis bring out your voice every day. “When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, speak up. You have to say something; you must do something.”

Don’t let your lack of knowledge and fear of speaking up ruin your life. Read a book this month.
