For so many, 2012 was a year to leave behind. The brightest spot for us was my daughter’s wedding! Yeah! But, the rest of 2012 was not all that easy in our world. This seems to be a common experience.
So, what do we do? So often, it seems that we look at difficulty as a survival of the fittest situation, that motivation for better comes from seeking to defeat someone else. Competition is good, right? Unfortunately, it all too often devolves into destruction of the other for the betterment of yourself.
Perhaps a better focus, a better motivation is not on victory and defeat, but rather on health! Health is a cooperative venture and, as opposed to most competition, the betterment of your neighbor, not his destruction, contributes to the betterment of yourself. Good health begets more good health. Suddenly, killing the patient to discredit the doctor seems less palatable than competitive leadership at the top and undercutting at the bottom.
So, let me give you all this New Year’s wish:
I WISH YOU A HEALTHY NEW YEAR!
