Hi Everyone,

Well, the Holidays are over and a bit of the commotion and craziness of New Year countdown had finally subsided. It was good to kiss Year 2003 goodbye especially due to the many 'bad' events that happen last year. Certainly, we all hope that the brand new year of 2004 will be a good year for everyone. 

Reflection on the past is wonderful teacher. So, what did you do in 2003 that you want  to change or improve in 2004? Have you made your new year resolution? You know, the biggest thing anyone can do to change their life involves a change in attitude. Bad attitude equals horrible life, great attitude equals outstanding life. 

It doesn't matter what you do, what your job, your education level .... the attitude we carry between our ears everyday determines our success or failure in life. Our attitude towards our spouse, children, friends, job, business and etc. "Change your attitude...Change your life". It's that simple. If you could only make one resolution for 2004, decide to maintain the best attitude you can for the entire year. That, more than anything else, will get you closer to every other goals you set.

It's been my pleasure to have you in my life last year and I wish you and your loved ones a prosperous and wonderful 2004. Take care!
