I want to test my bravery, I want to test my English mastery, and I like the contests like this. May the Yuri choose me as the winner of this contest? Aamiin…!
Well, ladies and gentlemen, in this occasion I would like to deliver a speech about “Reading makes me successful” Let me begin with a story.
Last week, I read an interesting article which shows me about how important of reading the book is. And by reading that article, I know that success can be reached by reading. Don’t you believe me? Let’s prove!
Do you know Warren Buffet?
Do you know Barack Obama?
And, do you know who Bill Gates is?
Yes, you are right. They are successful men who like reading.
ladies and gentlemen,
Warren Buffet is a man of eighty four years old who successfully placed himself as the richest man in the world. Even though his day was busy filled with various activities taking care of the big business that had been pioneered, but he never forgot to always update his knowledge by reading various newspapers ranging from local, national to international.
Barack Obama. Who don’t khow him?
When he was a president in a superpower, it would certainly be understandable if Barack Obama no longer had the time to read books, newspapers, or may be news portals. Because he can ask his assistant to find the latest information he need. But in fact, the Afro-America-blooded president chose to read for himself various readings that he felt he needed to read.
Obama will spend his time in the morning reading daily newspapers, magazines, even various online pages such as blogs and websites. From there he got information about developments in his country and internationally. Obama's habit has been done since he was little. Maybe because of this, Obama appeared as one of the smartest people in the world.
Bill Gates. Everybody khow him and nearly all people in this world use his invention.
Microsoft inventor, Bill Gates also became one of the successful people who never abandoned their reading habits. In fact, this man who already has billions of dollars in wealth is always loyal to read various books that he considers useful to add insight as a businessman.
Every week, Bill Gates will "force" himself to spend a book that is considered useful. Not only books, Bill Gates also became a loyal reader of the New York Times, Wall Street, and several other newspapers. Bill Gates's busyness does not make him indifferent to loosen various kinds of reading material which he thinks is useful to read.
Ladies and gentlemen,
By learning about the habbit of great men which I had told above surely can prove that reading is very important for us.
Ladies and gentlemen!
Reading is an activity that has many benefits. Besides adding insight and information, reading can also be beneficial for the brain and the human body. Several studies and experiments have been carried out by experts on this matter. The following is a review of the benefits of reading for the brain and the human body.
1. Give strength to memory.
Parts of the brain will develop other functions such as imagination ability, language and associative learning, all connected in certain neural circuits when reading. Reading habits can stimulate the brain to think and concentrate.
2. Overcoming stress.
Reading creates a situation where there readers feel as if they are in the place where they read in and forget all their problems.
3. Keep brain organs active and sharp.
Activities that involve brain training make the brain more efficiently change the structure to continue to function properly, regardless of neuropathological matters related to age, reading books as a hobby from the age of children to old age, great benefits for brain health in old age later.
4. Prevent Alzheimer's disease or senility
Empathy includes the ability to feel the emotional state of others, feel sympathetic and try to solve problems, and take the perspective of others. This ability can be sharpened by reading a lot.
Ladies and gentlemen!
Evidently reading contains much of benefit for us. I like this hobby since I was a child. By reading I can know everything. I know what I never see. No wrong if there is a word of wisdoms, “book is a window to the world”. I prove it. I hope I can be the successful woman in the future. Like Warren Buffet, Barack Obama and Bill Gates who hold important role in the world. Aamiin…!
Ladies and gentlemen,
Finally, I would like to end this speech by saying “Let’s make reading not only as a hobby but as a need.” Good luck for us!
Thank you very much.
Wassalamu’alaikum Wr. Wb.
Thanks for your visitation
