Dr. Carson’s philosophy of life is stated in the acronym THINK BIG. It stands for Talent, Honesty, Insight, Nice, Knowledge, Books, In Depth learning, and God. the most important ones to me are honesty, knowledge, and talent. They are the three big parts of succession. I believe to succeed those three things should happen. All of these are also needed for a good character. “ Success is always temporary. When all's said and done, the only you’ll have left is your character.” Honesty. Honesty is a big part in succeeding your dreams. I believe honesty is very important because telling a lie always makes things even worse than it was before. Ben Carson used honesty to get where he is today. When he was at the store, he paid for his groceries.
