Living in Germany urges me to understand not only language. I like to learn new culture over the world, including Germany. The interesting thing to be related in life is local wisdom such as expected attitude which occurred in certain believe. I heard that German has known as hard-workers in the world. They have good ethos to strive good quality in life.

Refering to learn the culture, one day my teacher in here said wisely “ohne Fleiß, kein Preis Anna!” She suprised me with this wisdom when I was stuck on lessons. So guess, what is the meaning about? In English, that sentence means no pain no gain.

What is the relationship between whisper wisdom and beginning of year?

Every one has something or few things on their mind to make it true within a year. Surely, it is a plan, target, goal, dream, resolution or whatever you name it but everybody wants to reach out more and better become a succesful person at the end.

To pursue the goal in this year, you must fight to have it. There is always a way to lead you as long as you have willingness to strive it. No wonder that a goal required a lot of efforts to endure physically and suffering mentally in reaching out its.

Ohne Fleiß, kein Preis. “Fleiß” is a Deutsch word that meant ‘hard working’ and “preis” is also meant price in English. We will have ‘the payment’ after we work hard and persistent to make it true.

In beginning of year, I remind to myself and all of you to have energy that fuelled by the purpose in order to the end of year. “Price” can be defined with self-rewarding, happiness, satisfaction, etc when goals or target accomplished at the end this year. The wisdom from Deutsch words is personal motivation to trigger us now, in beginning of year.
