NewGen Global READERS

articles Mar 01, 2020

We live in a time and world that gives us so many opportunities. With the technological proliferation and permeation of every aspect of our lives and every sector of our society, I am fascinated and energized by the opportunities we have to read and grow all the time. There should be no excuse for not growing and living up to our full potential with so many resources available to us that weren't to our predecessors just a couple of generations ago. 

Just think about it, we have access to:

  1. Public Libraries that are filled with a variety of books that we can all enjoy free of charge (yes it is not totally free - taxpayers pay for it, but that is not the point here),
  2. Online Programs/Apps, like Audible, that allow listening to books while driving, alone or with the family on a road trip, or doing chores at home, or exercising,
  3. Various sources and online bookstores for purchasing used books at much lower prices than buying the new books,
  4. Access to information online through various research platforms

Above are just a few examples of how accessible information is to us today - so lack of information is a lame excuse by those who don't want to grow.

“Reading is essential for those who seek to rise above the ordinary.” Jim Rohn

However, we have to be also cognizant of the fact that there is a lot of material out there that can be more harmful than helpful, that can keep us stuck in the mediocre and comfort zone than elevate and help us rise above ordinary!

So I have decided to use this blog to share the books that I absolutely believe are a must for all NewGen Global READERS to read:

  1. The Holy Bible - you might wonder why I put it first and in fact, I had a teenager ask me "why is it so important to read a book that was written nearly 3,000 years ago, how relevant can it be to our current society and issues and challenges we have today that were not there 3,000 years ago".  My answer to that - God's word is the unchangeable and undeniable foundation for all generations.  Regardless of societal and cultural differences, God's core values and teachings did not and do not change.  If you would think of it as a skeleton remaining always the same, just being dressed with different fabrics, colors, and designs of our socio-economic and political environments.  And you will find it amazing how many books are out there that are based on God's core values - they are simply stated differently to make it more accessible and relevant to generational uniqueness.
