– By Luis Miguel Messianu | President & Chief Creative Officer –
A lot has been said about 2012. Mentions of Nostradamus’ prophecies or the Mayans predictions, among other notions, have added to the overall feeling of uncertainty we are all experiencing.
But if we think about it, it wasn’t that long ago that the world was supposed to come to an end when Y2K marked the beginning of the 21st century. Of course, the media leveraged their scare tactics, and guess what? Nothing happened and life went on.
So at this point and especially in the spirit of the Holidays, I think we should focus on the issues within our control.
We should celebrate the amazing human spirit. We should be happy for our capacity to confront adversity, and we should demonstrate our love to those around us. We might as well live with passion for what we do and make a continuous effort to keep learning and bettering ourselves every day.
We should remain optimistic. We should stay the course and we should feel proud of our accomplishments, big or small.
If we do that, my prophecy for 2012 is that we will certainly make it a better year than this one.
Here’s to a very Happy Holiday season for all of you, and may the New Year bring us all closer to all our dreams.
Luis Miguel –
