Why I read a book, and why you should too.

Aula Andika Fikrullah Albalad
Its English day, so I want share you my resume after watching a great video I have ever watch in last year. I watch this video twice a month to enhance my spirit to the top. Hehehehe.

Reading book has being a part of my life, this hobby has led me to be the Reading Ambassador of Aceh Province or Raja Baca provinsi Aceh, or most people say "duta baca Aceh", at the end of 2014 elected by Government of Aceh.

Actually, this article I adopt from TEDx which told by Tai Lopez. 
 Here I start it

"Everyone wants the good life but not everybody gets the good life. Imaging for a second, if right now. Today, how much more successful could you be if you just start a company 50:50 with Bill Gates as your business partner?  Warren Buffett was your investment advisor, Finding mentors like this is one of the biggest predictors of your future success.As Picasso said, “Good artists copy, great artists steal.”
Imaging how much happier you be today, if the Dalai Lama as your personal guide shown you. How to find the little things f that most people get lost in that. Mentors have the power. But in this talk (article) I would like to tell,  how mentors more powerful to transform our life. In this life, everybody wants get something, but again not everybody gets what they want. I would like to tell a little bit about that, because life is short and not everyone is willing to do what it takes. You must be different. You must do what most won’t.


As Thoreau says, “The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. What is called resignation is confirmed desperation.”
So let this talk inspire you to read a little more, search a little harder, find a few more mentors, and rise above a life of mundane compromise and resignation as you stretch further towards the “Good Life.”
In this talk, Tai Lopez, investor, entrepreneur, and Mensa member, shares why he reads one book a day.
Tai says, “Books allow you to simulate the future without having to actually do all the trial and error yourself...”
At age 16, Tai realized that life was too complex to figure out on his own.
So Tai wrote a letter to the wisest person he knew, his grandfather - a scientist - and asked for the answers to life’s hard questions.
Tai was disappointed with his grandfather’s reply. There was no “secret formula.” The letter simply said, "Tai, the modern world is too complicated. You’ll never find all the answers from just one person. If you’re lucky, you’ll find a handful of people throughout your life who will point the way."
But one week later his grandfather sent a package containing an old, dusty set of eleven books with a note, "Start by reading these."
That began Tai’s habit of reading on his search for what he calls the "Good Life”: the balance of the four major pillars of life - health, wealth, love, and happiness.
Over the years, Tai sought out the secrets to that “Good Life” by setting up his life as a series of experiments. He began by first reading thousands of books from the most impactful figures in history: Freud, Aristotle, Gandhi, Charlie Munger, Sam Walton, Descartes, Darwin, Confucius, and countless others.
He spent two-and-a-half years living with the Amish; spent time working at a leper colony in India; and helped Joel Salatin pioneer grass-fed, sustainable agriculture on Polyface Farms.
He then joined the long list of college dropouts-turned-entrepreneurs and ended up completely broke (sleeping on his mom’s couch) until he talked five, multi-millionaire entrepreneurs into mentoring him.


Tai went on to become a Certified Financial Planner and worked in the world of finance before becoming a founder, investor, advisor, or mentor to more than 20 multi-million dollar businesses while settling in the Hollywood Hills.
He appeared on various TV and radio shows, spoke at top global universities like The London Business School and the University of Southern California, and created one of the top downloaded podcasts and YouTube channels,
“The Grand Theory of Everything.”
In order to get feedback from an even larger audience, Tai started what is now one of the world’s largest book clubs which reaches 1.4 million people in 40 countries with his "Book Of-The-Day" free email newsletter.
Tai recently summarized all he has learned from his mentors and compiled them into a series of ‘mentor shortcuts’ he calls, "The 67 Steps."
In this talk, Tai shares a few of these “67 Steps” with you:
1. “Picasso’s Rising Tide and the Law of 33%"
2. “Sam Walton’s Night In A Brazilian Jail”
3. “The New Rules Of Reading”
4. “Stoic vs. Epicurean” "
As a reading ambassador of Aceh, the western province of Indonesia. I would like to ask you, let's start our day by reading a book.
Insya Allah, I do believe  Aceh could be the best province ever..
Lastly, Ayo Membaca, insya Allah, Aceh Berjaya.
