We all look forward to ringing in the New Year. Its arrival offers us exciting opportunities for a new start. We learn from past successes and failures, grab the present opportunities, and venture into the future with confidence and hope. This new beginning opens for us a new direction for oneself and for one’s world.
Socrates said, “The secret of change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” And so, how can we make the most of the New Year? You are never too young or too old to set a new goal and a new dream. Every New Year, like every new day, brings with it new challenges, new opportunities, new problems and new hopes. As R. W. Emerson said, “Write it on your hearts that every day is the best day of the year.”
