Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning. -Benjamin Franklin
You want the end results? Your only hope is in your own personal development.
What will you do today to grow, to improve? So many want; so few willing to do what is necessary. Your hopes can become a reality, but they won’t magically appear. You will have to do the work.
Ben Franklin at a young age would do whatever he could to improve himself. He would choose books over a nice meal. He would put himself in the company of other men, who had a similar desire to grow and improve. He is a good example for our children to follow. He is a good example for us to follow.
The Virtue of Hope
There is a belief by some that tomorrow will be better, that our future will be a little brighter. This hope is what spurns them to keep going even when the day is at its darkest. Without hope, we are lost.
