You may be just a book away from a new life. Your goals and dreams may be hiding in books you have yet to read. So, what is holding you back? Is it fear? Is it your past school experiences? Is it what people have told you? Have you believed that you were a poor reader or that reading is boring?  This message is about highlighting how books can transform and even change the course of one’s  life. It is for all of us. It is for those who have dreams of raising a great family, for those who want to start the business of their dreams, for those who want to get the education they didn’t finish get when they were younger and for those want to make changes in their lives. It is for everyone and it may just one book away.

In our society (schools and workplaces), people are measured according to their potential (what they think a person can do based on present performance). It is an unfortunate categorization because the reality is that everyone has potential and cracking open a book may be the very thing that will open the door to new possibilities.  We always have potential and there is always more room for improvement. Unlocking our potential may be just a book away.
