R. Frank Giddens expounds his philosophy on hard work to local youth at the St. Paul’s Youth Center- All Kids Are First Academy, April 2013. Giddens notes that he had no grand plans, but specific, measurable goals. He was impressed an an early age by a man who operated his own sawmill, and resolved one day to be like that man. This he did, running several of his own businesses, building his own house (and local church) and working towards specific goals- like saving to buy a piece of equipment.
Grand plans or sweeping government programs backed by an army of bureaucrats are not needed. But then again, Giddens proved the old US Army slogan – “an Army of One” a long time ago. His essential message- QUOTE: “If you want something in life, you have to work for it.”
