Happy new year my dear friends!!
And what better way to kick off the year than with a bit of smile? Let the bygone be bygone, let us put all those pains and tears and sorrows behind while we begin our journey with a ray of new hope and all new opportunities shining over the horizon. So many new friends to be made, so many new things to try, so many new roads to explore. For, it’s not the destination but the journey that matters. Don’t you agree? So, if you were knocked down, gather the courage to collect yourself and stand right up again. If you were disappointed, betrayed and left devastated, pull up your sleeves and get ready to engage again. If you failed and lost, lift your spirit and try again. Because the real defeat does not come when you try and fail, but when you convince yourself to finally give up and pack you bags. Do not stop pushing until you really have arrived at your goal. You may not know how close to your station you really were at the moment you decided to stop and turn back!
So, cross your heart and promise yourself that you will not stop fighting. Life is beautiful and all the good things in life are really really worth fighting for. And it’s the fight that makes the success taste so much sweeter. It doesn’t matter how many times you stumbled and fell down. What matters is how many times you stood up again. For, if you do not fail ever you are probably not on the right way. Stop for a moment to ponder and change your course. The real champion never quits, never backs down. Just like our quirky little yellow friends, the Minions! No matter how many times they failed to win over a new boss, they did not stop looking for one. And finally they got Gru!! And what a boss he is!
Therefore, no matter how much Despicable the last year was, the show is not over yet. Give yourself the benefit of doubt that last time you were tad unlucky, and this year might just be your luckiest year. Keep the fire burning inside you. Stay hungry. Stay foolish. Forever…
