The Synergy of the Year of the Dragon and President Obama's State of the Union

Our positive outlook for this year of 2012 is full of hope and excitement. We have gone through many cross roads, turns, ups and downs in the last years. Indeed we need new perspectives and techniques to challenge our horizons dramatically in order to be more successful in achieving our business, professional and personal objectives.

The Year 2012 is the 
Year of the Dragon 
and Lunar New Year. 

Chinese calendar has been used for many centuries. It is used to celebrate many East Asian holidays such as Chinese New Year, Spring Festivals, Astrological Events, and the selection of most auspicious date for a wedding or opening a building. These were based on traditions and beliefs relative to one cycle of the moon in a given month.

This year 2012 is the Year of the Dragon (Male Water) which begins on January 23, 2012 and ends on February 9, 2012. The Chinese Calendar which describes about the Lunar Year has been used in three and a half millennia (source: Chinese Historical and Cultural Project).

The Chinese year that begins January 23, 2012 is reckoned in the seldom-used continuously numbered system to be 4709 (or 4649 or 4710), depending on the epoch used. (source:

Blue Print for an America Built To Last 

"A Nation Where Everyone Gets a Fair Shot, 
Does Their Fair Share,
and Plays by the Same Set of Rules" 
- Pres. Obama

"There's no reason why we can't restore the basic American promise that if you work hard, you can do well", "We all have a stake in the future success of our country. America is still the place where you can make it if you try. But we cannot fulfill that promise by shortchanging investments in our kids, our workers, our environment and our economy. The America we built after World War II -anchored by a strong middle class -- can be built again. We will do it by restoring an economy that works for all of us" - said President Obama, State of the Union Address, Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2012.

Wishing you all with the best of opportunities that the Year of the Dragon will bring us all.
