Though membership of Freemasonry is no guarantee of fame or success, it is notable that so many of its members have been leaders in their field. It must be noted that many, if not most, of these members became Freemasons after they achieved renown and so these lists are not offered as proof of Freemasonry's benefits but rather that of men of strength, intelligence, courage and great principle.
The Origins of Freemasonry
Freemasonry and success in life
It is no surprise that many extremely successful individuals were Freemasons. After all, the purpose of Freemasonry is to help a person to develop themselves in many areas that are largely ignored in this day and age. To an outsider that does not realise how much our fraternity helps each other to grow, it can be surprising that so much success can originate from our membership.
Through leadership, public speaking, and a number of other areas that are practiced in every Lodge, you too can improve yourself through personal development unique to Freemasonry.
