Lessons From Experience

By Mr. Steven J. Belmonte
I am 57 years old and this is what I have learned…
- Take into consideration that great achievement involves great risk.
- Don’t let a little dispute injure a great relationship.
- Share the good things that you know and have learned. It’s a way to achieve immortality.
- Place great importance upon your marriage, there are few things in this world more beautiful and fulfilling than a wonderful marriage. A loving and respectful marriage can be the foundation for the remainder of your life.
- Live a good honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you will be able to enjoy it a second time.
- One of the ways you can judge your success is by what you had to give up in order to get it.
- Be gentle with the earth. The web of life is interwoven, and all things are connected. What we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
- Once a year go someplace you have never been before.
- When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
- Learn the rules so you know how to break them gently.
- When you realize you made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
- Remember that sometimes silence is the best answer.
- In disagreements with family and loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Do not bring up the past.
- Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.
- Finally, spend a little time alone every day, just to think and reflect.
