End of Year... No Regrets

Happy New Year!!!  HERE we are at the final day -- the final 12 hours, at this point, of 2011. And many of us ask ourselves -- what have we done with the past year... what do I regret?

While I can't answer that question for you, I'd like to suggest a point of view, and that is... regret nothing. Chances are, you did the best you could with what you had; even if you KNEW something else was a better plan there was something deep inside you that caused you to do something else, and from that experience you likely learned something and that lesson -- those lessons -- will serve you well in the coming year.

Thank you for continuing to read and cherish my thoughts, and for sending your friends and other people you care about.  I'm looking forward to many successes and joys in 2012 and I hope you'll be a part of them in one way or another.  So before I sign off with my typical end of year poem, I'd like to suggest two things:
1.  Until midnight tonight, I'm offering my new "Intensely Positive" ball point pen for 30% off .  It's a beauty.  Check it out here:

2.  My friend Nachhi Randhawa published a Top Ten Year End Review Questions post that I wish I'd written (no that's not a regret) and I recommend the read to help prepare for 2012.
Thanks again for staying with me! and please, have a wonderful, joyful, prosperous New Year and remember... when you master your mindset, you master your life.  Enjoy the poem.
No Regrets

We close this year with no regrets,
We say good bye to gripes and frets
We ran our race just like before
And now "next year" is at our door.

At first we feared, we're out of time
Then realized the paradigm
Just shifted in our favor now
Recharged our glass, renewed our vow

We learned from previous mistakes
We re-assessed the steps we'll make
Re-focussed on our journey's end
Re-plotted strategies to win

We know that there IS NO disgrace
BECAUSE we still are in this race
We haven't quit -- we'll see the end
We paused and got our second wind

And now refreshed, recharged and fine
We're full-speed to the finish line
Into our future we now delve
We're sure to win in twenty-twelve.
HAPPY NEW YEAR, my friends.
