2012 has had its generous share of major horrific events all around the world;  Social and Political turmoil in the Middle East and Africa, financial melt down in Europe, mega storms and freak shootings  in the United States, not to mention the celestial events like solar eclipses and  meteor showers.

Despite all the chaos on earth and the Mayan predictions about an apocalypse happening on 12/21/12 we have once again risen like the phoenix and are about to celebrate yet another year.

In spite of all the doom and gloom, 2012 was also a great year for celebrations and achievements  too not just because of our Queen’s Diamond Jubilee which made us the focal point for all eyes, all over the world, not even because of the London Olympics which enthralled us all for weeks and made us realize what success is made of  but also because I actually got to have a little taste of success for myself.

The year started well, continued to be fantastic  and ended up as an award winning year for me, personally.

I launched  my copywriting video tutorial in February 2012, which turned out to be an amazing success, sold like hot cakes.

I then went on to create and launch two more video products, one on list building and one on Niche Marketing in the first half of the year with spectacular results.

In the second half of the year, I wrote and published my first book, “Baby Steps To Seasoned Strides” created my own brand and completed my second book, ready to be published.

Now I have a decision to make: Do I publish the second book now? Just before the year ends or do I save it as the first thing I do in the New year? Decisions decisions!

It was not the fact that I achieved most of my own goals in 2012, but the fact that I realized that it was possible to accomplish whatever I set my mind on, if I stay determined and work hard at it.

The realization that success is a product of industry was confirmed when I found out about some of the Olympic gold medalists’ stories.

How easy they made it look but how much hard work and effort they had put in, to get to where they got.

2012 may be coming to an end, but for me it was a year to remember. Not only did I achieve all the goals I set for myself, I also got my golden award when I published my book.

Oh, wait, it was a glass award!  And here’s a picture to prove it!

And here I am receiving it at the Ultimate Author Boot camp in December:

It has been a happy, productive, successful and memorable year for me.  I know 2013 will be even better, happier and more productive.

So Here’s to a Happier New Year for all of you.
