I won’t lie; it’s been a couple of months since I picked up a book to read. This has somehow left me feeling lacking. To get myself in the spirit of reading again, I decided to be reading ten pages every morning after I wake up and ten pages before I sleep. It has been challenging because sometimes I forget or I wake up late, but I try to compensate for the pages missed during the day.
Currently, I am reading “THE 5 A.M CLUB by Robin Sharma.” This book is the *ISHT*
It has helped me in terms of personal and work commitments. I am just about to finish chapter four, and I feel re-energized and ready to a better self. I hope this high will not be over once I am through reading the book *wink*. Quite frankly, I can repeat the book several times without getting bored or tired. So far I have gained several essential aspects of that I would love to share with you.

Just the other day I was catching up with a friend, and she narrated to me how a friend of hers was good at hairdressing but did not like it. Suddenly, she lost her job and her only option was to get into hairdressing since no other post was forthcoming. Through hairdressing, she became a brand ambassador to big brands that deal with hair and eventually opened a top-rated cosmetic agency. Once she embraced discomfort, God blessed her immensely.
