In this short 30 minute course, I'll show you 5 specific things you can do right now to read more books than you ever have before.

Because reading isn't just a nicety -- it's a must if you want to live your dreams. Yet everything we're taught in school holds us back from actually learning.

And that's why I created this course.

When I took over a failing business a few years ago, I had no mentors, no boss and no one to help me. My education from a "top 10 school" was no help either.

That's when I discovered the power of books. Every question I had, there was a book with an answer. And the better I got at reading, the more frustrated I got that we're never taught how to read the right way in school.

And that's why I decided to put together my course Become A Learning Machine: How To Read 300 Books This Year.

My goal is to share this message with as many people as possible. And that's why I've taken 5 of my favorite tips from that course and put them together for you here to go through in the next 30 minutes before you invest in the full course.

Here's what you'll learn inside:

  1. Why how we're taught to learn in school is the BIGGEST obstacle to reading a lot of books [Lecture 2]

  2. A simple mindset shift that will help you get through more books than ever before...and actually USE what you learn [Lecture 3]

  3. The obvious yet forgotten thing you NEED to do to read more books this year [Lecture 4]

  4. What you have to do as soon as you open the book to get through it quickly [Lecture 5]

  5. A simple trick that can INSTANTLY make you a faster reader [Lecture 6]

  6. Why you need to divide your reading into two separate categories to read as many books as you can [Lecture 7]

  7. Eight life-changing books you have to read [Lecture 8]

I'll see you inside.

By changing how you look at books, you automatically read differently. This was one of the most important mindset shifts I had when learning to read better.

How To Change Your Life With Books

In this lecture, we'll cover the power of your reading ritual, and why you need to read every, single day.

Do THIS...And You'll Automatically Read A Lot of Books

The biggest mistake you can make is to start on page one and just keep reading. Here's what you need to do before you open any book.

What To Do As Soon As You Open A Book

Your eyes take in small "pictures" of a word or two at a time before moving on to the next ones. Here is a simple trick you can use to turn those "pictures" to a "movie" and instantly become a faster reader.

How To Instantly Become A Faster Reader

I'm On A Quest To Give You The Education You'll Never Get In School.

The things that the world's highest achievers spent their entire lives discovering, that no professor or teacher will ever tell you.

Because when I was in college, I was mad. I’d just read a book and everything inside was the opposite of what I was learning in all my classes.

So I ran into the dean’s office and said "I'm literally learning more from the books I get on Amazon for five bucks than these classes that cost thousands of dollars each!"

And all she had to tell me is...they're working on it!

So when I walked out that day, I swore I’d teach myself the things I should have learned in school. And I started reading LOTS of books….now over a thousand on everything from meditation to making money. And I realized ONE BIG THING…

Everyone who’s excelled in any area of life knew things we’re never taught in school.

They were Insiders.

They discovered the truth about finding their purpose and creating a perfect vision to work towards. Or about motivation and productivity, financial freedom, having authentic relationships, changing the world, persuading people, learning incredibly quickly or celebrating their hundredth birthday still in perfect health.

Meanwhile in college we didn’t learn any of this stuff. Instead we’re forced to pay tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars to memorize facts so we could write them on a piece of paper.

So if you want to live a life miles beyond the “regular” life, you'll have to learn less from a classroom, and more from the people who have actually gotten the things you want.

And my goal on Udemy is to share with you how you can also Become A Learning Machine and to condense tens of thousands of pages of reading in different subjects to help you become way more productive and make a lasting impact on the world.
