First mix of the year is dedicated to all those who strive and persist, fueled by strong desires, and in pursuit of something they aspire to achieve or a view of self, an identity, they labor to create.
"Keep this constantly in mind: weak desires bring weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat. When your desires are strong enough you will appear to possess superhuman powers to achieve." - Napoleon Hill
"It is the striving after perfection that makes one an artist. It is the sense that one is imperfect, unfulfilled, unfinished. One attempts by a superhuman effort to fill the gap, to leap over it, to finish it in another medium. Adventure rarely reaches its predetermined end. Columbus never reached China. But he reached America." - Anne Morrow Lindbergh
