Study and discipline (the ability to control your own behavior) are the prerequisite (something that is necessary before something else can happen) to any form of accomplishment (achievement, or success). Unfortunately, however, studying is much like paying taxes (is very difficult) for most of us – we only do it when we have to. If you’re serious about developing greatness in your life, study the lives of great men and women and follow their advice (suggestion)!
Benjamin Franklin was one of the giants (great men). He was certainly a great leader and left anyone an abundance (large amounts or quantities) of advice. One bit (A small amount) of advice Franklin gave, if followed, will virtually (almost, nearly) guarantee (make certain for) you a brilliant (bright) future. “If a person empties their purse into their head, no one can take it away (steal it) from them. An investment (put, spent money) in knowledge always pays (gives you back) the best interest (profit, revenue).”
That is an excellent (very good) advice for personal growth.
A respectable (good) part of a company’s growth is due to (because of) the money that is pumped back into (invest or spent a lot of money back on) the company out of (from) the firm’s earnings. This money is invested in various improvements, research and development. How many people do you know that emulate (imitate, do things in way as some else does) their company in this fashion (way)? I know a few, but not many. The one out of a hundred that do are big winners.
If you merely (only, just) put three percent of your time and earnings into your own research and development, you would be on track (in right direction) for sure success. Three percent of your time is only five hours per (in a) week to study and develop your own potential (ability to do things). Three percent of your earnings, if you earn forty thousand per year, is twelve hundred ($1,200) dollars you could invest in personal development.
You and I both know how valuable Ben Franklin’s advice about dumping (putting) your purse into your head is.
To your success,
Chairman and Founder
