To some, the New Year is a fresh start, to others it is a continuation and still to some it is a repetition of the past. However one chooses to look at the new year, the fact is, it is another chance to right wrongs, achieve goals, grow and develop, change redundant initiatives, overcome challenges and become more visible.

To every individual, the fresh and vacant 365 days is a new gift, to do with as one wishes. How a person chooses to use this gift is key to how healthy, prosperous, happy, peaceful, productive, successful and independent they would be this 2017. On another hand, the usage of the '365 days' gift would also determinehow poor, sick, aggressive, depressed, frustrated, unproductive, dependent, unhappy and disrupting a person, group or nation would become.
The excitement of a New Year
The New Year excitement goes with the renewed hope with which those that have survived the travails of the past year face the new year. The 'Happy New Year' wish we bid one another reflects the underlying need and desire of everyone who beholds the new year. People are unconsciously aware that the year could turn out to be an unhappy one for them or theirs. Therefore, the wishing of 'happy new year' to everyone important to us is not just a way of showing solidarity or peaceful co-existence, rather, it is a strong display of rejection for any likely unhappiness to come. In other words, fear and doubt form strong motivations for the happy new year wishes. This is more evident with the increased variety of religious and spiritual exercises that people undertake in order to claim the best of the yearfor themselves while warding off, rejecting, denouncing and destroying every connection to or with unhappiness that may come in the new year.
In the form of a hard truth, it is crucial to point out the fact that the 'happy new year' wish generated or evolved from the fact that to some degree, we are all aware that the 365/366 days, left to chance, is likely to turn out bad or ugly for many, if not all. Therefore, we adopt an avoidance coping mechanism of I WISH YOU A HAPPY NEW YEAR which seems to evoke an auto-renewal of happiness for everyone that hears it. 
Is the Wish Enough?
Will one be happy by merely wishing it? Wishing means hopes, desires and dreams one has without supporting actions. When one wishes, it connotes a great awareness of the unlikelihood that what is wished for would come to reality. Wishing, pronouncing and praying, all operate in like manner. They could be very powerful tools (when backed up by adequate action) or mere futile efforts when left empty and without functionality. When one wishes, the person seems to have concluded that what is wished for would probably be turned down. To some degree wishing reveals helplessness. However a wish could come true when supported with timely and rightful actions. We (individual, group or nation) probably would have a happy year after all but only if we act accordingly and timely too. We already have 26 days less of the 365 days gift. Questions are; why have you been given this new 365 days? What is expected of you in this new 365 days? Would it be better to bury it and bring forth nothing new on the 365th day? Or is it a chance to proof your worth beyond all possible doubts on the 365th day?
New Year Message
Life has no reversal or rewinding, but when we have received the gift of a new 365 days, it sure is God's way of giving us another chance to get it right. Therefore, get it right in your marriage, job, education, relationship, spirituality, leadership, personality, economy, finances, and life in general.
In a bid to achieve the above 'the get it right campaign' the human world have discovered, encouraged and empowered concepts like;
