According to THIS ARTICLE, yesterday was the gloomiest day of the year.
A renowned psychologist did some statistical analysis and found six significant factors that made Monday, January 21, 2008 the gloomiest day of the year.
- The weather
- Christmas debt
- A feeling of monotony after the Christmas cheer has faded
- Broken New Year's resolutions
- Low levels of motivation
- A desperate feeling that you need to act to improve your life
Let me see how these factors are affecting me right now …
Weather Well, I live in South Carolina. Yesterday was a beautiful, crisp sunny day. Does not apply.
Christmas Debt Not a chance! This was the fifth year in a row that I paid CASH for Christmas. I ain't EVER going back! Does not apply.
Monotony after Christmas Are you kidding me? I spoke at NewSpring on Sunday. This Friday/Saturday I am teaching the Financial Freedom Experience. (You should come!) Next Saturday evening and Sunday morning, I am speaking at Southbrook Community Church in Weddington, NC and then on Sunday afternoon, I will be teaching the Financial Learning Experience! And, oh yeah, my FIRST BOOK WAS RELEASED! Does not apply.
Broken New Year's Resolutions NOPE. I am making progress on them all. Does not apply.
Low Levels of Motivation Anyone who has ever met me knows that I am not calm. I can't help but be excited by how much I have been blessed with in life! Does not apply.
Desperate Need To Improve My Life I am so blessed. I am blessed way beyond what I ever deserve. Does not apply.
I guess it is true. When you are able to do EXACTLY what you have been put on earth to do, you are living a good life!
I thought yesterday was quite nice.
