Do It Like Ben Franklin-Student Success Tip

Here’s how Ben Franklin can help you gain success in life


One of this great statesmen of the United States was Ben Franklin.

When Ben was a young man, perhaps right around the age you are now, he started thinking about what he wanted to accomplish in his life. Then, he went on to write out a list of all the qualities he needed to cultivate in order to be the person he knew he could be.

When he’d written down these qualities, he went on to carefully define what each meant to him.
