Lost Letter: George HW Bush's Advice to Young People

You've seen a lot of moving tributes and historical moments with the late President George HW Bush this week in the media, but here's one more you don't wanna miss.

41 gave great advice to young people to live by.

Here's a letter he wrote to former IBM CEO Sam Palmisano

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!!

George Bush”

Legendary advice!
