Security Is Between Your Own Two Ears

One of the best investments you will ever make in your future is in your brain. Stocks, bonds, real estate and gold, pale compared to the vast empire you possess within your own mind. No one can ever take it away from you. It will never be bankrupt or devalued as long as you continue to use and add to its value through continual learning and action.

One of the keys to helping your brain work for you, is to make it easy to acquire new and pertinent information. One of the ways that works best for me, is to make it convenient to access the kind of knowledge I want to store in my brain cells.

To begin with, your library card is a must, for ready access to free books, cds, magazines and other information sources. Amazon, Google and other web sites that will connect you with information and knowledge are a must as well. However, what I have found, is that you must have access to this knowledge when you are ready to absorb it. By placing books and magazines in places you frequent often, allows you to use a few spare moments to learn.

Since the kitchen table is a place most people will use two to four times per day, this would be a good place to place a couple of pieces of reading material. Your home office or family room is another good location to have information available. In the area where you use your treadmill or other exercise equipment is a great place to have reading material. Using informational cds on a cd player or on your Mp3 player are excellent ways to tap some time for learning while exercising.

The important thing to remember is to control the information flow to your brain by making it convenient to learn throughout your day. When you do this, you will setting yourself up for learning the kinds of things that can help make you successful.
