I hope Tuesday finds you well.
Strictly Come Dancing finished its latest run on TV over here.
A phenomenally successful format, sold around the world, it works for many reasons - It is unabashed entertainment, with sequins and flashy grins.
The show in the UK is live, so the tension is palpable.
The reason I like it, and I know I've said it before, is that it is a great demonstation of truths about goal achievement - set yourself a target, commit to it, and then work as hard as you need to, and you can achieve stunning things.
The change in one amateur dancer this series really was amazing to watch. She took several knocks from the judges, survived many dance offs, and got to the final.
Once there she encountered another fact of life, because although she got perfect maximum scores from the judges for both her dances, she was the first to leave the final.
Was that unfair?
Was it hard on her?
Undoubtedly, but that's the way it goes!
The other couples were equally as good, and it shows that despite the hard work and commitment, you can't always guarantee success.
It's a great show, and I'm already looking forward to next year's series!
Great life lessons too, and as we appraoch the end of another year, it prompts the question - what did you commit to in 2008?
How hard did you work towards it?
What were the results?
The answers of course then lead you on to what will happen in 2009 - you don't necessarily need to get the sequins out, but by jiminy you could do worse than think of Strictly Come Dancing for inspiration!
Ok, that's it for this week, and I'll sign off by wishing you a Happy Christmas to you and yours, and hopefully I'll get to whack out an issue next week!
'Til Next Time,
Health & Happiness,
