Living Like Benjamin: Making Dreams Come True

AuthorHouse, 2007 - 232 pàgines
You can find your balance and the keys to success and enlightenment by implementing a plan of mind, body and spirit. Through the mastery of virtues we are ultimately able to master ourselves. This book provides a powerful framework that will liberate you to all the possibilities and magic in the world. "Dead Presidents," is ghetto-parlance for money. Benjamin Franklin is the only non-president to grace American paper currency. His face, on the highly prized $100, spawned the phrase, "All about the Benjamin's." As one of the first millionaires in American history, he felt establishing a virtuous life was the key to great success. He also knew that money was a tool; a sharp one. This is a guide to take hold of those virtues and shape the course of your life. Franklin, in his great genius, focused on 13 virtues. He would work each of those virtues for seven days. He would go through the cycle four times a year, starting anew every 13 weeks. The coded-cycles help make our dreams come true. Benjamin Franklin's contributions continue to have a huge impact on our world. It is time to return back to wholeness, prosperity and goodness. It is our duty. When we start to focus on living more virtuous lifestyles, the hope for our lives and humanity grows greatly. When we chart our course, we move with power and love. Capt. Brad Borden, USA (Ret.)
