Benjamin Franklin – Growth and Progress

Benjamin Franklin - Growth and Progress

“Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.”

-Benjamin Franklin

Truth be told, I would say that not only do they have no meaning, but it would also seem they are impossible to achieve without any growth or progress. I think Franklin is talking more to our inner growth and progress, because if we haven’t changed, that is, we haven’t improved ourselves or deterred at all from our origin, then what have we improved?

Think of 10 things you want to achieve for yourself; whether it be learning something new each day, or counting to 10 before exploding with anger.

Write those things down, and place them by your bedside. Each morning and evening say them aloud; “I will learn” or “I will be calm” and then repeat the list as you possess the trait; “I do learn” or “I am calm”.

Even a small progression can be the start of something great. Good luck!
