As we move towards the second month of 2013, billions of people around the globe are preparing for the Chinese New Year. 2013 is the Year of the Water Snake.

The self-reliant snake is a complex creature, it has an eye for detail and extremely calculating. It is quiet and unassuming; they humbly work alone and are remembered mostly for the most memorable accomplishments. When they strike – they hit the mark.

Snakes can teach us that to be successful it is essential to plan, prepare and to do so quietly. Snakes can also be a lot of fun, they are great dancers when they want to be and exude charisma and confidence.

What I find most inspiring in a snake is their ability to shed skins when they no longer fit them. Unlike us, we struggle to keep wearing that reality that no longer serves. Not snakes…

Perhaps it’s a wise idea to think of how you can adopt some of these characteristics into your daily life to make sure YOU Create the Life you Want to Live this Year.

Have fun!
