Most of you probably wonder why you would read a blog titled, “Reading the Correct Way”, Or “Reading to Increase Success”. Many of us wouldn’t think of reading a blog showing us how to read, especially when we’re in our young adult years.
Reading is one of the most powerful things in the world. For some of us, we might ask ourselves,“Why does it take me a long time to understand the sentence I just read, and remember it?” Is there a profession where you break down books into simpler more understandable terms? If so, I would love to know what that profession is called.
Actually, when you think about it, you should be translating each sentence you read into your own terms anyway. Each sentence should be broken down and researched to fully understand its meaning. This, in my opinion, is the best way to learn from anything you read.
Along with researching and breaking down the sentence, it’s important to look up in the dictionary each word you don’t understand. Consequently, your reading speed will drop as a result, but it will be worth it in the long run. A perfect example would be if you’re just learning how to snowboard and you, like many others, decide to fly straight down the hill at full speed. By the end of the day, you realize that you had many more trips down the hill, but didn’t really learn how to maneuver the board as well as you hoped. Meanwhile, the person who decided to go slow and work on carving didn’t get as many runs in as you did, but they learned much more about themselves, the board, and the hill. Sometimes taking things slow and doing things the long way—which is the least desirable—can help us learn much more. More importantly, reading the correct way can help people reach success easier in their lifetime.
