Happy Groundhog Day everyone! In honor of this very unique and special day, I've posted my 102nd success wallpaper entitled, "Foresight".

I bet you never thought you'd see a motivational wallpaper celebrating a groundhog predicting the weather - at least one that wasn't in the shade of the demotivational sort.

In all honesty - for some strange reason - I've wanted to make such a wallpaper for a long time. However, a fitting concept never really came to me until I was running down a list of possible topics for this year a few weeks ago. When I came across "foresight", I had that light bulb moment for a possible idea.

Foresight is the act of looking forward, and getting a perspective of the future. Living in America, and seeing what has been happening these past few years (and even decades), it's easy to say that many in this nation had failed along the way to use good foresight, within the scope of making important economic decisions that would affect this nation.

One may ask, "But the groundhog is simply looking for his shadow. Where's the lesson in that?" Well, at least he's trying to look ahead for something. Don't make the same mistakes that many others have by not taking time to see how the decisions you make today will affect your future. Use a different perspective (along with some common sense) to see where you may be headed if things don't change. Doing this will help you to avoid the disasters that many others are headed towards.

Having the proper foresight allows you to create a sensible plan which you can adjust as you move forward. This allows you to be more creative, yet responsive when things start changing, allowing you to make better decisions, and stay on target to where you want to go. So it's well worth taking the time to look ahead on a consistent basis.

(For those of you living outside North America, who really have no clue as to what special day I'm talking about, you can get a good rundown about Groundhog's Day here. This page actually lists 22 up-and-coming groundhogs from around North America. Never realized there were so many of them.)

Here's to the Groundhog, who reminds us today to use a little foresight!smile
