Benjamin Franklin made a powerful statement when he said, “There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one’s self.”
Consistent happiness, success, health, deeper relationships, and an empowered mindset are all predicated on your ability to know who you truly are and what you’re about.
Your success is going to be dependent on your ability to connect with the people and the world around you. But the question is, if you don’t understand yourself, how can you expect to truly understand anyone else?
Most of us have been programmed (by default) to pursue success somewhere outside of ourselves. We have lost sight of the fact that happiness and success is an inside game. Your ability to master your own mind and perception of reality is the key to seeing the results you want in the world around you.

Benjamin Franklin noted that this is not for the weakhearted. It can be very hard work. Yet, the rewards are bigger and better than anything you’ve ever imagined. So, whether you’re all about the Benjamins or not, listen closely because you’re about to get a first class ticket back to the most important person on the planet: Y-O-U.
