Make a Simple Habit

All you’ve to do is to make a simple habit . After this habit , You are going to be a true intelligent and experienced person in your life . Let me talk about the habit now . The habit is nothing but to apply practically what you read first (a section/topic) . Then , (after completing the practical part related to the section you read) go for another reading part . It is looking so simple and easy when you hear it but follow practically is always slightly difficult . It doesn’t matter that how much reading material you have been through .  But , It matters a lot that how much of it you apply in your life .


For Example

If you read any scripture of the world , there are so many points which look so effective and practically possible . One way is to go through complete book in few days and forget half of the things by the time you complete the book . But , our method is to go through with one part/section of reading first . Then , think that in your mind for a while & try to get ideas that how could you apply those ancient sayings in today’s life . There are many things which we could apply even today from our old Scriptures & get benefit . Their relevance would be there in every generation .

Same way , there are many self-improvement books available in the market . People go through these books and feel motivation for some time . But after a while they get engaged in their life and start forgetting all the teaching which they got from the book . Here , better way to get complete benefit of these books is by applying them instantly in your life and make a habit . For example , If there are 20 chapters in a book , go through with first chapter . Then , find out all the points which could be applicable practically in your life and apply them practically and see the results . If you feel that any point is going to be perfect suit in your present life then you must make it a habit . Go further with other points as well .

Concluding Part

Once you follow this way , You are going to feel a change in you because when you ‘Take In’ something , you’ve to ‘Take Out’ something . When you take in a good thing , You’ve to take out a bad thing related to that . This way , You are going to become a true knowledgeable person that is going to bring some glory for the society as well . After all , You are reading something which is already proved many times in many generations , provided you choose a genuine content .

Why did I say that this knowledge is perfect because experience is attached to it . Once you read something and then apply it in your practical life , definitely you are going to get different results every time you try . This is what we call experience . Your hold on particular knowledge becomes more stronger every time you apply it . Therefore , choice is yours , whether you want to be just known as an intelligent person or really want to become intelligent .
