How To Read Like a Billionaire

Remember when your parents would drag you to the library on Saturday mornings?  You’ve dealt with enough books at school. Why would you need to stuff your face with more?

Your parents may be on to something. Billionaires like Warren Buffett and Oprah Winfrey carry a trait that has made them super successful: reading.

So, how do you do it?

How to Read Like a Billionaire

1. Make time to read

You may not have three hours of reading to spare, and that’s okay.  Give yourself at least 30 minutes a day to read an enriching book.

2. Read for answers

The difference between rich people who read and everybody else is the content they absorb. Most readers read for pure pleasure. Those with higher incomes read for further self-education and application.

Elon Musk’s inspiration for Space X came from rocket science books. Of course, a few sci-fi adventures made it into the list.

3. Read more

There’s no harm in reading more than required. Nobody’s stopping you. What do you want to know? The more you learn, the better.

Billionaires’ Reading Habits

Billionaires today have massive literary appetites.

Other billionaire readers include Charlie Munger, Elon Musk, Oprah Winfrey, Jack Dorsey, David Rubenstein, and Mark Zuckerberg.

BOOK REVIEW: “Mental Chemistry” by Charles F. Haanel

Image result for mental chemistry wilder publications

  • Title:  Mental Chemistry (Amazon) (Goodreads)
  • Author: Charles F. Haanel
  • Publication: Wilder Publications (December 18, 2008) *orignally published in 1922*
  • Genre: Self-help, New Age/Metaphysical
  • Pages: 120
  • Format: Paperback
  • Source: Purchased
  • Rating: 5/5 stars

I’ve found Mental Chemistry at Barnes & Noble with its unusual cover. By then, I knew the book covered some deep matrix-y subjects, and it did.

The basis of Mental Chemistry: our minds reflect the Universal Mind and the Universal Mind is the source of everything. In more simple terms, our mind is the microcosm, and the Universal Mind is the macrocosm. A quote from Nikola Tesla comes to mind:

nikola tesla ac GIF

“My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe, there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength, and inspiration.”

We can create abundance since we channel the source of everything. We are infinite beings. The ability to manifest endlessly is in our hands, but we barely use it.

Mental Chemistry reminds me so much of Wallace Wattles’ The Science of Getting Rich. Both Haanel and Wattles speak of bringing down abundance from an invisible higher source.

 I’ve written down many valuable notes from reading Mental Chemistry. Here are nine takeaways you can use in your life.

 Nine Takeaways from Mental Chemistry

  1. Those who acknowledge their thoughts are infinite have great power.

 Think about those who are always making something new: Elon Musk, the fellas behind Apple, Nintendo, and more.

Oprah Winfrey is a great example of an unlimited creator. She is an actress, philanthropist, and a former TV show host with dozens of books and magazines under her name. All Oprah has put out in the world represents the countless treasures from her mind.

  1. Thought is more valuable than all the gold in the world

If you repeatedly work on manifesting your ideas, money will follow. What’s stopping you?

  1. Every thought becomes a physical thought

Without thought, where would we be? Depending on external circumstances to give you your desire is only a disservice to yourself. Put action into your thoughts, and your desire will appear.

  1. Mental currents are real

Your thoughts are like radio signals. You get whatever you’re turned to. Whether you think of positive or negative thoughts, the people and the events will come to you.

  1. Thoughts + Action = Harmony

Manifestations come to life when your actions mirror your thoughts. For example, you must exercise and eat clean daily to lose weight. You won’t get your dream body by simply thinking about it.  You must pick up the healthy habits for your dream body to manifest.

  1. Abundance is the natural law of the universe

Abundance is everywhere. Think of all the stars in the sky, the published books, and the ideas discussed in this world. Take note you too can create your own abundant universe.

  1. What you think creates happiness

This may sound cheesy, but happiness truly comes from within, not from the Rolls-Royce or the $50 million home. Happiness comes from knowing you have an infinite mind. Therefore, you can be creating everything you want from nothing.

  1. Be creative, and you’ll be successful

Whoever claims writers, painters, and other creative people will never make money have no clue of their real power. Everybody is born with unlimited creativity. How much you tap into it determines your success.

  1. The three keys of creativity: imagination, visualization, and concentration.

Use these three traits daily, and you’ll find yourself in some wonderful places. J.K. Rowling made sure she got her little story about a young wizard was finished. Look where her imagination has taken her.


Mental Chemistry reminds readers to take control of the power that lies within their minds. Haanel wants you to realize how powerful you are. Your mind is your superpower.

Have you read Mental Chemistry or any other book from Charles F. Haanel?

Book Review: “The Great Pyramid Hoax” by Scott Creighton

Image result for the great pyramid hoax goodreads

Something’s Fishy…

According to The Great Pyramid Hoax, the cartouches bearing King Khufu’s name are fake. Author Scott Creighton claims Colonel Richard Vyse forged Khufu’s name to prove further Khufu built the pyramid.

Mainstream archaeologists believe Vyse’s discovery is authentic. However, Creighton provides evidence in his book that doesn’t add up to Vyse’s claim:

  1. Nathaniel Davison explored the great pyramid before Vyse. He found no written names inside.
  2. How did Vyse learn about King Khufu’s name? There are no sources!
  3. Vyse had hidden knowledge about Khufu’s name in his private journal. He hasn’t made any comments about it in his public reports.
  4. Humphries Brewer worked as an assistant during Vyse’s Giza expedition. He witnessed his fellow workers committing forgery in the pyramid.
  5. Evidence of paint run on the cartouches. The ancient Egyptians would’ve left no room for errors.

Lastly, Colonel Vyse carried an ill reputation. He was involved in political bribery and corruption in Giza. Would you believe this man made such a historical accomplishment?

Final Say

The Great Pyramid Hoax was tedious to me despite all of the compelling evidence. The book was engaging at first until it came to particular details about paint, hieroglyphics, and stone markings. The book might be an intriguing book for those in love with ancient architecture and archaeology, not me.

At least, I learned something new. I didn’t know such an argument about pyramids existed.

I gave this book an unusual 2.5-3 star rating. The book had several dull moments,  but I appreciated Creighton’s lengthy sources and enthusiasm for the subject.

My 90-Day Reading Challenge

I did a 90-day reading challenge from September to December 2017. Every day, I read a book up to 90 minutes.

The point of this challenge was to see how far I would go reading on a daily basis. As a book blogger, it turned out great for me! Taking time to read every day helped me brainstorm new blog post ideas.  You can’t blog about books if you haven’t read any.

In the beginning, I started reading 90 minutes a day until, you know, life happened. You know the usual: work, family stuff, and so on. To read all day, you’d want to exclude yourself in a quaint little cabin far away from civilization.

I let go of my strict 90-minute routine and went with a 30-minute minimum. If obligations seriously crunched my reading schedule, I would read at least for 15 minutes. As long I was reading, it counted!

New habits formed during the challenge:

  • I bring a book with me EVERYWHERE! I’d be bummed if I went to work or a social outing without a book.
  • If I didn’t have time to read during the day, I would use the most of my willpower to get the reading done at night.
  • I used to read one book at a time then ended up reading two per day.

Want to start the 90-day reading challenge today? Down below is a short, sweet guide to get you started!

The 90-Day Reading Challenge Guide:

beauty and the beast books GIF

  1. Read every day during the challenge. You can set up your own rules of time whether it be 15, 30, or longer.
  2. Record your reading times and dates. 
  3. It doesn’t matter how many books you read during the challenge. The days are what counts.
