They say that a new year brings new hope.... yeah, just like another rising sun brings in a new day... it really doesn't take a genius to figure that out. The sage who said that must be really proud of himself now.... who would have thought then that a rising sun means a new day?
Okay, where are we? I think I'm lost... oh yes! The New Year!
So, can we expect a better 2009? Should it really bring us new hope, better chances, and more wealth?
Come on! Stop kidding yourself! If you didn't do good in 2008, what makes you think you'll get better in 2009?!
I hate to be the one breaking this to you... the 'New Year, new hope' is nothing but a fallacy! A phrase coined by people who always wait for fortune to come in dropping on their lap.
There is really nothing wrong in having positive thoughts, is there? There's nothing wrong in holding on to hope either...
But by all means, get your butt off that chair and do something! Do you really think wealth would pop-out of that computer monitor landing on your lap?! Give me a break!
Yeah, you're right. I'm talking to myself again here... and you're nothing but an unfortunate witness to this event... or are you?
The new year is upon us, don't expect it to be a better year.... DO SOMETHING TO MAKE IT A BETTER YEAR!
Which reminds of a quotation I read in one of those self-help books....
"If you keep on doing what you're doing... you'll keep on getting what you're getting!"
