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.

4 Ways YOU Can Create Powerful Habits – James Clear
Author and habits expert James Clear says if you want to make big changes, first you have to think small. His new book, “Atomic Habits,” zeroes in on the idea that small adjustments add up to larger changes over time.
What Are Habits?
Let’s define habits. Habits are the small decisions you make and actions you perform every day. According to researchers at Duke University, habits account for about 40 percent of our behaviors on any given day.
Your life today is essentially the sum of your habits. How in shape or out of shape you are? A result of your habits. How happy or unhappy you are? A result of your habits. How successful or unsuccessful you are? A result of your habits.
What you repeatedly do (i.e. what you spend time thinking about and doing each day) ultimately forms the person you are, the things you believe, and the personality that you portray. Everything I write about – from procrastination and productivity to strength and nutrition – starts with better habits. When you learn to transform your habits, you can transform your life.
Listen to the full podcast interview below to learn the ways that James Clear has Mastered his Habits!
As James Clear says:
Becoming better is not simply a matter of willpower or work ethic. It’s also a matter of strategy. What people assume is a lack of willpower or an unwillingness to change is often a consequence of trying to build good habits in bad environments.
- If you are trying to read more books, don’t do it in a room filled with video games, Netflix, and a television. Move to a less distracting environment.
- If you’re very overweight, don’t try to follow a workout program for college athletes. You can get there eventually, but that’s not a battle you need to fight right now. Start with a manageable change.
- If you’re surrounded by people who tear down your goals, then work on your projects in a different location or reach out to like-minded people.
- If you’re trying to stick to a writing habit when your kids are home from school and your house is in chaos, then work on it at a different time. Switch to a time of less resistance.
Build your habits where it is easy to do so. Re-define the situation. Create a game where the odds are stacked in your favor.
It sounds simple, but how often do you find yourself fighting difficult battles and ignoring easy ones? There is plenty of time to fight the difficult battles. Win the easy battles first.
The smartest path is to improvement is the one of least resistance. Fight battles you are destined to win.
