My vote is Henry Ford.

Not only the inventor of the assembly line but also a great philosopher in regards to manly success.

A few of my favorite quotes of his.

“Those who believe they can do something and those who believe they can't are both right.”
― Henry Ford

“As we serve our jobs we serve the
world.” 
― Henry Ford

“There is no disgrace in honest failure; there is disgrace in fearing to fail” 
― Henry Ford

“When everything seem to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it ....” 
― Henry Ford

“If money is your hope for independence, you will never have it. The only real security that a man can have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience and ability.” 
― Henry Ford

" Chop your own wood and it will warm you twice."

-- Henry Ford

Ford also ventured into the world of social and sports commentary: "If fans wish to know the trouble with American baseball they have it in three words—too much Jew." (22d May 1920)

Interesting. i had not realized he was antisemitic. It appears even some of the most influential men are not beyond fault and have a dark side of which we all possess.

"There's a man on Youtube called Wranglerstar. His channel deals with modern homesteading, so there's plenty of woodworking, metalworking, leather craft and other things made by his hands. He also does Bible studies. Pretty cool dude."
