The Millionaire Who Read a Book a Day for 30 Days – Chris Harder

Lori Harder & Chris Harder Isagenix Millionaires

I recently caught up with the professional network marketer, millionaire and entrepreneur “Chris Harder” to find out what he discovered last month during his challenge to read a book a day for 30 days.

Chris read a long list of self development books and was able to absorb a world of knowledge through commitment to complete each and every book he read, from cover to cover in the small window of a day for 30 days straight.

Chris saw his wife Lori Harder taking a full-time daily approach towards her personal development and he decided he didn’t want to play his self development at 50%. He felt like he needed a radical change to step it up to the next level so he decided to take on the challenge of reading 30 books in 30 days.

Within a few days of intense reading Chris was able to condition his brain to endure the long hours of learning as he extracted a lot of amazing advice and lessons from the books he committed to.

Chris also donated over $7,500 that he raised from this challenge to Make-A-Wish.

Read on as I reveal some of the key takeaways from this discussion with Chris and listen to the podcast interview below to find out how you to can prepare for your own amazing challenge of self development to read a book a day.

 

 

All 30 books had ONE message in common

Every book Chris read, went back to the baseline of giving. Giving back and contributing to others.

“Giving really is the secret to life.” – Chris Harder

 

What Chris Learned from the Spiritual books he read

You should always be happy with what you have right now before you are going to be given anything else.

Being present and getting rid of all the noise in your life, and being absolutely grateful for what you have and where you’re at right now is the key to spiritual success.

 

The Top 3 Business books Chris read over the 30 days and why.

1. The Go Giver

You will learn why the more you give, the more success you get.

 

2. Lead like Reagan

You’ll learn the great leadership skills that President Reagan had while he was in power. A great way to become a better leader.

 

3. The Starbucks Experience

You will learn how great companies come to be and how great companies continue to thrive and change with the times.

    That’s awesome one would say. To read a book a day challenge and accomplished the challenge must have taken him hard work and self discipline. Wish i personally have the inspiration, the grace and determination to do likewise. I have seen people that gave themselves challenge and accomplished them but this one is extra ordinary.
