The end of the year
As we approach the New Year it is tempting to look back rather than forward, to reflect on failure or past successes rather than look to future glory. A friend of mine once suggested that he should not move forward because he felt he had no "happily ever after" to look forward to. I disagreed, he was persuaded by my disagreement, and these days he is as happy as I have ever known him. You could be Wellington after Salamanca, and feel you have done all you can. You haven't. Look to the future for success. The past has nothing but itself to show you. Build on that past. Build a greater victory. Happy New Year, folks, and build yourself a better future!
