Read to Succeed and Become Great at Anything in Life

The book you don’t read won’t help you,” is a quote that was often said by the late legendary motivational speaker, Jim Rohn, who had recently passed away in December of 2009. Rohn’s quote is a key to personal growth and development. Great wisdom is hidden in books. However, a person must read books to discover their secrets.

Reading and writing are two of my favorite hobbies. Helping people is my life’s passion. Naturally, I felt the desire to write a book on how “reading books” can help a person to become self-fulfilled and successful in life.

Discover Hidden Secret Wisdom: A Recreational Therapist’s System on How You Can Become Great at Anything” is a book that was designed for people who are seeking to find their way in life. Each of the 12 chapters is a prescription towards wellness, success, happiness, and greatness. Readers can find this book to be a captivating approach to self-discovery. Many of the lessons in the book are based on my personal experiences as a recreational therapist for a children’s unit at a psychiatric hospital. I weaved together personal experiences and examples from a wide range of sources from self-help authors to scientific researchers.

Bibliotherapy (the therapeutic use of books) is a technique that I use to help children with aggression problems to become more empathetic. We’ll read children’s stories and have discussions on how each character felt during different parts of the story. We’ll talk about safe and fair solutions that characters in the story could have taken. Learning to read better promotes the child’s self-esteem and social skills based on my personal experiences. I try to promote and encourage these children to become avid readers at a young age.

Discover Hidden Secret Wisdom is more than a book. It is mission to promote reading and literacy. There are a large number of people who’ll never read another book after high school. Many more will never read another book after college. An estimated 13 percent of adults in my home-state of West Virginia didn’t have basic literacy skills in 2003, according to a report from the National Center for Education Statistics.

Decided to form a partnership and donate part of the proceeds from Discover Hidden Secret Wisdom to First Book because of their shared vision and mission to promote reading and literacy. Always glad to hear about the wonderful things that First Book is doing to help provide books for children in need. Believe that avid reading should start during childhood.

Dr. Suess said it best: “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn the more places you’ll go.”
