Late last year George WH Bush, the 43rd President of the United States died and a letter of advice he wrote to young people did the rounds of the internet.
The fact is this is excellent advice for all of us.
The letter says:
“I cannot single out the one greatest challenge in my life.
I have had a lot of challenges and my advice to young people might be as follows
Don’t get down when your life takes a bad turn.
Out of adversity comes challenge and often success
Don’t blame others for your setbacks
When things go well, always give credit to others
Don’t talk all the time.
Listen to your friends and mentors and learn from them
Don’t brag about yourself.
Let others point out your virtues, your strong points.
Give someone else a hand.
When a friend is hurting show that friend you care
Nobody likes an overbearing big shot
As you succeed, be kind to people.
Thank those who help you along the way
Don’t be afraid to shed a tear when your heart is broken because a friend is hurting.
Say your prayers!!
