In my previous post, I wrote about building a passion for lifelong learning. Having a passion for lifelong learning is essential to help you reach your full potential. Now, I’d like to cover what I believe is a good way to learn about life: reading biographies.
Why is reading biographies useful? There are at least four reasons:
- It can teach you about pitfalls to avoid (so that you don’t need to learn things the hard way).
- It can teach you about how to respond to failure.
- It can open your mind about what is possible.
- It can teach you about great principles to live by.
Of course, there are many biographies to choose from, so I’d like to ask you:
What are your favorite biographies and why?
Please leave your answer in the comments so that everyone can read it. Thanks!
