Solving Five Major Problems in the World


According to Rick Warren, there are five major destructive problems in the world. Here is the list:

~ Spiritual Emptiness

~ Self-Centered Leaders

~ Poverty

~ Disease

~ Illiteracy

All of these problems can be solved if children, teens, and adults of all ages will get back into the habit of reading for fun; even just a few minutes per day.

Does that sound unrealistic? Can we really solve world problems by reading for pleasure?

It’s proven that one government, one business, or one organization cannot solve these five horrific problems. If they could, then it would be solved.

What we do know throughout history is that ordinary people can make a difference in the world.

Or as Steve Jobs would put it, “The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

How can reading for pleasure help with such major problems?

The first thing to understand is that reading assignments in school or work are not the same as reading a few minutes a day on your own for the pure enjoyment of reading. (Reading on your own is for “wisdom,” more than “knowledge.”)

Spiritual emptiness, self-centered leaders, poverty, disease, and illiteracy can all be solved by improving the creative minds of our existing children and teenagers, along with their imagination, and unique ideas.

How do you obtain a creative mind, imagination, and unique ideas?

Reading on your own for at least nine minutes a day!

For this to happen, it needs to start with adults leading by example:

“I am taking the 9 Minute Reading Challenge! I pledge to read at least 9 minutes a day for 9 consecutive days in a row. Then after 9 days, I will do everything in my power to continue with my reading.”

If you take the 9 Minute Reading Challenge, email me: AuthorRonKnight@Aol.com

Also, if you are an author, or own your own business, or run an organization, send me the website link and I’ll promote you!

The world can change for the better if we devote just 9 minutes a day to reading for fun…
