There is a growing desire in the hearts and minds of those around us to know and want to feel love. Not the love that we just throw around, but a knowing that everything is ok and a love that permeates our entire being. Love is the only way to eradicate hate and bring hope to someone’s life.

One of my favorite Childhood shows was Reading Rainbow with LaVar Burton “Take a look, it’s in a book, it’s reading rainbow…” Successful writers and leaders are readers. REading is the one thing that will catapult you to success. He even has a new podcast called, LaVar Burton Reads.
The world’s most successful entrepreneurs and writers are avid readers. Statistics show the more you read, the more money you’ll earn. But, the more we read in our areas of influence and those self-help books, the better chance we have of being successful.
