Brain Activity: Well Read

“Not All Readers Are Leaders, But All Leaders Are Readers”

Harry S Truman, the 33rd president of the United States famously quoted.

The importance of reading cannot go unnoticed.

There is a wealth of information just waiting to be tapped.

The more you read, you can make it to the level of being called “well-read.”

Well Read

“There is no friend as loyal as a book”,
said American author Ernest Hemingway.


One of the advantages of reading is that it occupies different parts of your brain. When you read, you utilize your comprehension and your analytical skills.


Being an Alpha isn’t about good grades in school, it means that you have a deep understanding of ideas and the way the world works. 

You are a student of your environment.

You can’t win a battle if you don’t know the battlefield and books are a way to help understand the world we live in and how to face the battles of mankind.


Reading can also promote inner calmness and improve overall health. 

Reading has also the potential to magnify your levels of creativity. 

Whether you read about a specific craft or skill to boost it or you are reading for recreation, the words written could spark new ideas.

A new idea can be the catalyst for a new project, a new campaign, or a new way of expressing yourself in this world. 


Books are a perfect staple at night before you sleep because it allows your muscles to relax and your mind to wind down. 

It is known that one can have a deep and sound sleep when the brain is happy. 

Reading is the best way to end the day on a quiet note. 

It may even help you fall asleep much faster.


However, it is preferable to grab a printed book than any gadget before you sleep at night due to the electromagnetic frequencies and the blue light that can trick your brain into thinking it's daytime.


We are always either growing or dying, there cannot be both.

Alpha’s live in growth mode.

So grab yourself a book (pr audiobook) and never stop learning.
