How did reading more books changed your perspective on life?

Ideally, our perspective on life should be improved by people we meet and live with everyday, like our parents, grand parents, teachers, neighbors, and so on.
But most people live in the midst of dysfunction, confusion, argument, emotions, depression and sickness.
More and more young people are not able to believe that getting married or having children will make more sense in their lives.
I just watched a documentary that showed that Japan’s population is shrinking by 500,000 people every year as the percentage of single people approached 40% of the general population.
Under such circumstances, searching for books that will give me a more optimistic perspective on life proves almost desperate.
But I have peace of mind now because I believe I have already read enough great books to boost my having an optimistic perspective of life.
These are the books that help me sustain an optimistic perspective on life:
The Fifth Discipline by Peter Senge.
Senge explains why the most successful corporations will be something called the learning organization.
They will be those who have discovered how to tap their people’s commitment and capacity to learn at every level of the organization.
Senge identifies the five mega-skills that provide the vital dimensions in building organizations that can truly learn: systems thinking; personal mastery; mental models; building a shared vision; and team learning.
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey.
Covey explain quite thoroughly the 7 character traits that make us effective.
These 7 character traits are: Be proactive; begin with the end in mind; put first things first; think win/win; seek first to understand…then to be understood; synergize; and sharpen the saw.
Six Thinking Hats by Edward de Bono.
de Bono improves productivity of individuals and teams by more than 400%.
His Six Hats method is one powerful way to get rid of our wasteful habit of arguing with people, design away confusion, eliminate ego, and make full use of our intelligence, experience, and information.
We become more productive when we think together one direction at a time: make your agenda clear; gather information, reveal your emotions; be creative, be optimistic, be cautious.
Blink by Malcolm Gladwell.
Gladwill observes that great decision makers are not those who process the most information or spend the most time deliberating, but those who have perfected the art of “thin slicing” – knowing the few things that matter.
When we are able to narrow down our vision to target those few things that reveal the truth, the result is far more accurate and takes just the blink of an eye, than days and months of forensic and research.
The Power of Full Engagement by Jim Loehr & Tony Schwartz.
Loehr & Schwartz reveal that managing ENERGY, not time is the key to high performance and personal renewal.
Shewatabh Chatterjee, thanks for your request, but I don't know how much satisfactory answer I have written for the question, it was a tough question indeed.

I personally feel reading becomes part of you….
It changes your perspective on so many things on so many levels.
I started reading just to pass time actually… My sister used to read a lot of novels and my mum too… I remember irritating my sister asking her to play with me.
She was the one that introduced me to books.
In the beginning it was my passtime but gradually I realised I was enjoying it.
Enjoying it even better than playing videogames!!
You kind of realize you are subconsciously living the characters' life, their perspective on things, you realize you're feeling what the characters feel.
You learn from their mistakes.
There are so many situations you may never face, but you get to live them through the characters.
You realize there's so much going on that you didn't know and so much more that are yet to be learnt….

Firstly ,reading books taught me that there is no such thing as a single perspective or my perspective.
Things change according to situations and our mindset.
Let's take a simple situation.
Person A doesn't read books but person B does.
Both of them fail in a test and go home and both parents start yelling furiously.
Now , generally one can expect person A to feel sad and maybe even slip into depression if things got hat far.
It would be an overwhelming situation for person – to bear the humiliation, lack of encouragement, guiltiness and failure all at a time.
That happens given the age , situation and yes perspective.
But I believe that person B ( who reads books like me) can think beyond that.
First few moments B will be distresses but he gains perspective on how his parents feel , working hard and feeling stressed about the child's failure.
Person B realizes exact cause of failure because of the teachers perspective that he gained by looking through his paper.
Person B finally understands the mistake and tries not to repeat it.
Person B thinks even farther and more reasonably (maybe even more maturely) than person A.
What I mean to say is that I have learned that whatever happens is not fate or luck but a logical consequence of my deeds.
If I have to correct it I will and I will move on.
I think not only for myself but also for others, on their behalf.
I gained an ability to think beyond the constrictions of present on going situations which gives me a level of freedom and lets me have hope in whatever decisions I make for the future.
It maybe hard to believe all this can happen with reading books but since I have been there I can tell you that it will help definitely.
Life experiences teach a lot but since there simply some things that you may not want to / cannot experience, books teach you about their consequences too.
There will be bad times and there will be good times.
Don't lose hope because everything will be alright.
Don't slip your toungue cuz words can't be taken back.
Have a balance and command your life according to your will.
There are multiple ways to do everything.
Opportunities keep coming and you have the right to choose.
Always.
It's not your fate or destiny or luck or past or your background that defunes you.
It's your choices.
Things always go to hell before everything becomes alright.
Living more than one life is possible when you read books and it's only fair to say that it's the exact reason that changed my life completely.

Whatever the book, it have always something unique, which try to poured inside our soul by writer and through this beauti our perception are moulded.
(if we get those words inside us)
Now, have a look on this picture
What are you seeing , changing perception towards the world through these books which poureded wisely inside our soul by words.

And as per question, the changing perception through books are explained.
Read more books and poured something ataraxia's inside your soul.
Good luck.

books shows how to live and how to overcome limitations of life

When I was in high school I loved reading Shakespeare.
It was a challenge at first, but the study of classical English Literature developed my imagination.
This, in turn, helped me understand problems in other areas of my life.
Now I find mathematics and languages fascinating.
I am no Einstein, but reading books sparked an interest in areas I never thought I would like.
“Outside a dog, a book is man’s best friend.
Inside a dog it’s too dark to read.

~Groucho Marx
I hope this helps.
Adrian Lee Magill.

If you don’t read books, you have only your own perspective on life.
Every time you read a book, you get another person’s perspective.

It made me much more empathetic!
When you read, especially a wide variety of novels, you put yourself in someone else’s shoes.
You see what they see, feel what they feel, etc.
It’s an experience only reading can deliver.
I’ve read several books where the narrator wasn’t always morally right or justified, but have been able to see their motives and find common ground with their character.
I believe that has made me more understanding to others in real life.

It has enriched my life totally as I use the 3rs technique.
It goes like this 1.
Rip 30 pages out of the book 2.
Replace the pages means fold them and put them into the backpocket of your trousers where the wallet is.
3.
Recycling Bin Every page read is junked as soon as possible.
With this technique I can read every free minute.
I learned that there is a lot of time wasted not reading.

It definitely has made me a more accepting person, both of myself and of others.
I also grew to learn about the difference and similarities of varying cultures around the world.
I don't think without reading Gandhi's Autobiography that would have been possible.
I also learned about the plain effectiveness of writing, and how a message can still be portrayed or come across to the reader regardless of proficiency in writing.
The writing has to make sense, but if the message is priceless, popular and resonates with the reader, then who writes it (A Stanford graduate or a school teacher) matters less than what is written in it.

Reading thousands of books has introduced me to cultures, countries, and perspectives I would never have known except through books.
When a character has a different perspective on something than I had considered, it makes me look at things differently and carries over into real life, so that I’m less quick to judge.
However, to be honest, I began avidly reading when I was eight years old, so my perspective on life was hardly formed before books began to shape it.

I felt normal.
More often than not, kids who read books are the ones who aren’t called “normal.
” They are the nerds, the geeks, the dorks, and the outcasts.
It didn’t help that I was particularly not at all athletic.
I hate sports, dancing, and hiking (mostly because I’m afraid of heights).
Reading books – reading the words, the letters, inscribed by a person, a someone whom I do not know, have never met, and is probably miles and leagues away from me, or could probably be dead for hundreds of years – made me feel normal.
That I’m not the only one in the world who feels the way I do or thinks the way I do or acts the way I do.
It made me feel normal, but at the same time, extraordinary, because I’m not normal.
Basically, it made me feel normal about not being “normal.

As the famous quote says that “Books are humans best freind” But rather leaving its really fun and knowledgable to read books There are many reasons to do so
1 It changes your preception of thinking in many fields and gives you an immense amount of knowledge.
2 If you are reading english books It increases your vocubalary.
3 Reading book of your personal interset keeps you indulged in it and soon you start loving it.
4 Reading the books related to what you want to become is really helpful for keeping you motivated towards.
