What Legacy Are You Leaving?

What Legacy Are You Leaving? - Steve Wickham

At the end of your life what will you have passed on to your kids and grand kids  friends and neighbors, work colleagues and peers? What're you passing on now?
This is the best wisdom I can offer at this stage:
ONE. The main task of life is to meet challenges and overcome them. This takes insight (awareness, patience) and courage (power of will, perseverance, and resilience). When in pain, be gentle with yourself but address the stimuli. Learn... learn a lot.
TWO. The best way to relate with people is to actively understand them by listening. Most of our own problems are solved in actively listening to others. That doesn't appear to be logical... but by faith, try it. Speak less, listen more. Respect everyone.
THREE. Take time for yourself and to be alone with God, which is simply thinking about the mystery of life. Get to know yourself; you're a good person worth getting to know. Find out what you want to do, and do it.
FOUR. Stay on straight paths by finding wisdom and 'watching your hands' (be careful not to do devious things). Get to know how to trust.
FIVE. Live each moment by forgetting yesterday and tomorrow. Be your best and don't regret. Don't compare yourself with others.
SIX. There's no formula to life; no code to crack... as much as that might frustrate some (including me), it's true.
SEVEN. Love while you have the chance. The higher law has no rules (refer point SIX); only it 'is' or it 'isn't'.
Have I missed any? Should I re-phrase any? Is this an attempt to formula rise life in contravention of point SIX? Perhaps...
