2012 Is All Excitement!
January 3, 2012
Welcome to 2012!
IT'S CRAZY OUT THERE
I must say that in a sick sort of way, I have been very excited about this coming year for quite a while. I can't wait to see the numerology crowd get spanked. Movies have been made about 2012; the Mayan calendar supposedly ends this year; prophecy fulfillment is upon us; the doom-and-gloom fear mongers are predicting certain destruction in magazine and news reports ... and if you believe all the 2012 hype, it'll be more crazy than any year ever. Yeah, right. The end of the world.
Remember what FEAR stands for: False Evidence Appearing Real -- which is exactly why none of this nonsense will ever happen in the coming year. Of course we will have challenges, like any random period in human history, but we will also have the response to those human challenges. 2012 is just a number, and the same as any year before or after.
While the world is not coming to an end, we can ACCURATELY predict what WILL happen in 2012 -- and you heard it here first -- you will become as successful as you make your mind up to be. Let me repeat that: You will become as successful as you make your mind up to be. Abraham Lincoln said that 150 years ago. It's still true.
While the new year is upon us, let's look on the bright side. How lucky we are to be here and be a part of another year which will bring us great things and much success? If things change, the person who can most quickly adapt and change to meet the challenge will be the winner and the true success. Be flexible (remember the story of the tree that bends vs. the tree that doesn't) and know that with all things comes change. Weather any storm for the calm waters ahead.
The new year to me is very exciting. It's a new and fresh start, an opportunity to make something happen. It is so exciting, there is so much to see, so much to do, so many goals to achieve, so let's get started! We will end 2012 with more goals than we could have achieved!
Music continues to get better each year, which is amazing when you think about it. This is coming from me -- a guy who has been playing hits since the '70s. Often I hear a song and wonder, "What would I have thought had I heard this in 1976 when I was an MD?" With age you get some perspective, and I can tell you for certain today's music is awesome -- and far better to my taste than anything we had "back in the day." Not to take anything away from the classics of that period, but kids today have some incredibly good stuff. It seems to advance each year to even higher levels in production, style and lyric. This can only mean that the human race is advancing, growing year by year. Love that!
We notice that while the current music from last year was outstanding, we also can imagine that creativity of today's artist will be even better in 2012 and beyond. The other great thing about 2012 is that we are living in the greatest period of time -- more so than any other generation. We have so much work to do, and advancements in technology and other breakthroughs are being made daily, while big things continue to await us right around the corner.
We are here, we are still advancing as a society, change is in the air, and change is always good (if you know how to react to change, that is).
Make up your mind right now that 2012 will be your greatest year of achievement YET. By making that promise, having well-defined goals and executing on those goals, you can achieve your well thought out success for this year. 2012 will be the BEST year yet!
