Be a magical kite!
Tone, tenor and composition of the days do not change with falling years. At the pomp of New Year eve, do not forget that the next day breaks in the same old way.
Ever since the evolution of mankind, days have been providing egalitarian 24 precise hours for all. Man according to his will and skill has been making use of them – either for sleeping or for working, for creativity or destructivity. Then what is such significant with a New Year? A lot.
New Year comes with a bag full of new hopes. This is the changeover time - the best occasion for correcting whatever mistakes that have happened in the past 12 months and produce yet another 12 meticulous months.
Dawn of a fresh year is an occasion for us to set new goals. For magicians, this is time for setting targets regarding number of shows and profile of audiences.
Those who would like to turn their magical skills into money at the entertainment market next year, planning should begin now. Making a roll of prospective organizers and keeping them alerted would reap excellent results.
The New Year too will have the salt of obstacles in life. If challenges are not there, life would be tasteless.
And for the year to come, let us remember the American writer Hamilton Wright’s words: “Don’t be afraid of opposition. Remember, a kite rises against, not with the wind”.
Be a kite on the skies of achievements throughout 2010. Good wishes at this Christmas-New Year season!
