Why I Read Fictional Books

How can a book about dragons, witches or secret powers inspire me in my business and life?

How can a book set in the Australian suburbs make me want to be a better person? 

In all of the books that I read, fictional books still inspire me the most. 

The characters of the books show me where decisions can lead them.  How having passion and energy can help you complete any feat.  It causes a bodily reaction where my mind’s eye is activated and my visualisation muscles are enhanced.

So what does this mean for you? Most of us are wanting to read the top 10 Forbes business books or the latest from Hay House, yet forget that books based around fiction have so much to teach us as well.

When you read a fictional book you can put yourself into someone else’s shoes and perhaps empathise as to where someone got their beliefs or perceptions in life from.  Or maybe it gives you an insight into what life will be like if you continue doing the same old thing without recognising you’re meant for more or something different.

When you use your imagination, you’re building up your visualisation muscles and this will help you create the life of your dreams.  The life that you’re wanting to create.  It will inspire you into action.  You will be able to experience new experiences without any real consequence. 

These new insights don’t have to be powerful. They just have to be able to raise your vibrations to a state that excites your mind and gets you thinking and flowing into a new or better way of living.

Once that has happened, you are assisting your mind and body to create change.

Over the past year I’ve read quite a few inspirational books where I’ve travelled to fictional places, have been given ideas on how I can live my life and how others have overcome challenges. Here are a few of them.  Read a few and let me know how it goes!
