So you want to develop your business idea?⁠

Hmmm…what are you reading?

World renowned, motivational speaker Tony Robbins attributes reading as the key early source of his certainty and confidence today. Mentioning the fact he had no role models at a young age, he did however have a fervent passion for reading. ⁠


Subject to a rather violent and tumultuous upbringing, Robbins mentions that reading books such as “As a Man Thinketh”, “Man’s Search for Meaning” and Emerson’s essays, truly shifted his paradigm. These gems pretty much dwarfed his problems, giving him belief that things could get better, Reading gave him the feeling of being transported to another world where he could find answers to his problems. ⁠

With such a burning desire for the pastime, Robbins took a speed reading course and, in turn, managed to read 700 books in 7 years! From achieving that feat, this prominent luminary must have a few books to recommend, below we have listed a few:⁠

1. Secrets of the Millionaire Mind: Mastering the Inner Game of Wealth – T.Harv Eker⁠
