Remember your high school chemistry professor? The one who called exams 'learning opportunities' and gave more homework than any other teacher? Remember how you, muttering under your breath, did all the problems and struggled to understand?
And how, the next year, all that work paid off when you knew more chemistry than anyone else? Well, it's going to be that kind of year for you.Try as you might, you're not going to be able to avoid jumping over hurdle after hurdle on your road of life this year. No matter how well you've got things planned out, unforeseen difficulties arise and unexpected problems present themselves, forcing you back to the proverbial blackboard for new solutions and agenda adjustments. Crisis control becomes the norm, hindering forward progress. You feel like you're paddling with all your might, going upstream and getting nowhere. Now, the important thing is not that you're having crises, but how you're handling them. Giving up, giving in, taking the easy way all seem tempting but you know in your heart of hearts that the situation calls for gumption, hard work, and backbone. The consequence of giving in is an inner feeling of weakness and resignation. Taking the hard high road leads to future satisfaction.
