Today is my brother’s 14th birthday (happy birthday Kevin) and in honour of that I wrote down 5 life lessons that I’ve learned that I’d like to pass on to him. Take a look:
5 Life Lessons for My Brother On His 14th Birthday
- Always say please and thank you because nobody on this planet is here to serve you if they do it’s because they want to not because they have to.
- Always be grateful for everything you have because there are people out there who have less than you who still manage to smile.
- Listen to your elders because although they don’t know everything they do know more than you because they’ve been alive longer than you.
- Never give up because the difference between winners and losers is that losers quit when winners carry on.
- Do everything you can and more to help people because when all is said and done people won’t remember how much money you had or how many cars you had but they will remember all the things you did to help others.
No matter who leaves I will be fine– that’s what I know.
