About 300 years ago a boy was born into an impoverished family of 17 children!
Through wise investment and sheer determination this child, Benjamin, went on to found one of the top research universities in the world, invent a ton of useful things (including the lightening rod and swim fins,) and help write the US Declaration of Independence. What did he have to say about the value of education?
Benjamin Franklin declared “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”
Benjamin’s story was a true tale of rags to riches and in sharing his experience on how to improve our financial situations he would emphatically drive home the point that it is through continual growth, which education provides, that we give meaning to the word success.
Here is the real twist to his story; Benjamin left formal schooling at the age of 10 to help his father. Despite this he found educational opportunities everywhere he looked and designed his path so that he would be able to continue to learn and become a more educated person throughout his whole existence. He may have left school at the age of 10, but he never stopped learning until he died at the age of 85. In fact by the time he passed away he was able to speak 6 languages!
