10 Pages A Day Can Change Your Life


I recently have been following Jeff Moore’s blog, My Everyday Power Blog.  Jeff’s blog is very uplifting and inspiring.  He recently wrote about 25 movies and books that you must see and read that are inspirational.

I am an avid reader and have found that reading good, motivational, inspirational and sensational books over the last two decades has changed my life in a wonderful way.

In the book “The Slight Edge” author Jeff Olson states ‘”one should read 10 pages of good book from authors such as, Napoleon Hill, Stephen Covey, James Allen, etc., everyday.  Over a period of just one year you would have read 3,650 pages, the equivalent of one or two dozen books of life transforming material. There is no question after reading 10 pages a day, over a period of one year,  that your life will be changed.”

Jeff Olson also states “the simple truth is, how you feed your mind is every bit as critical to your happiness as how you feed your body.”  Put junk in and you will get junk out. Put healthy, motivational and inspirational in, guess what you will get out?

Once you begin with 10 pages every day, and keep it up, you will hunger for your reading time.

Each person has to accept responsibility for their own future.  If you do not invest in yourself, you will most likely end up investing your time in someone or something else.  You deserve the best, give yourself time and a purpose to pursue whatever it is, and then do just that.

Here are a few of the book which I have in my library that you might want to check out if you take the challenge to read 10 pages a day.

  • Getting Things Done
  • 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership
  • Awakening the Entrepreneur Within
  • 3 Keys to Empowerment
  • The Success Principles
  • The Levity Effect
  • The Slight Edge
  • Put Your Dreams to the Test
  • You, Inc.
  • The 4 Hour Work Week
  • Repacking Your Bags

There are thousands of excellent, inspiring books out there.  If you have a few favorites please share them with us.

Have a great Thursday and enjoy reading a few pages today.

  1. Great post and great message, I find however that if a book is so inspiring I usually don’t want to put it down especially after ten pages… Jeff Moore’s blog, My Everyday Power Blog.is a great blog I follow as well and a great choice you share as a source of inspiration and great advice he shares! As I must say is yours! Have a great day Tina, and thanks for starting ours with a bright thought or two! 🙂 Joe

    • Good Morning Joe, Thank you for your comment. I am with you, on reading and having a hard time stopping. For many, they never read books at all, so 10 pages is a challenge. And for our busy schedules 10 pages is very doable. Thank you too for your inspiration also! Have a wonderful day 🙂

  2. I agree. When I did Bob Proctor’s Goal Achievers Program part of it was to read certain chapters of Think And Grow Rich every day. This reading and re-reading really embeds the concepts. It’s partly why, in my own book, I revisit certain concepts over and over from a different perspective. Great list of books by the way. 🙂

  3. I’ve fallen out of habit of reading all the good books I have towering on my bedside table. Thanks for the reminder. And thanks for the blog suggestion. I am now following Jeff’s blog.

    • I am glad you liked his blog, very uplifting and informative. Just pick up one of those books tonight and read only 10 pages, if that takes more time than you have make it 5, just do it every day! Have a wonderful evening.
