You look at your world as if it is a jigsaw puzzle today. Naturally, you want all the disparate pieces to fit together into one coherent picture. Unfortunately, reality can be messy and nothing you do now seems to clean it up.
However, rather than pushing for an impossible solution, you may benefit from honing your existing skills or learning some new ones. Paradoxically, letting go of your intention to solve a problem allows resolution to occur naturally. Don’t be in such a rush to figure everything out. Embrace the unknown and let your life surprise you.
People may be caught off guard by how much you want to talk and how fast you speak your words today. Your normally deliberate style of communication feels old and worn out, but you don’t necessarily have anything to replace it.
Be cautious about overloading others with information too quickly. Put your thoughts in order before you open your mouth because you only get one chance to deliver your message. Verifying data before you share it as fact is always prudent; now it’s an absolute requirement.
You could be put in the position of needing to defend your integrity, even if your behavior has been impeccable. However, someone may cast doubt on your reliability by citing examples of where your previous actions left something to be desired or missed the mark entirely.
The bad news is you might not remain quiet long enough to hear the criticism. The good news is you can consciously place your verbal barrage on hold while you reframe your strategy for the days ahead. Author Dan Millman wrote, “You don’t have to control your thoughts. You just have to stop letting them control you.”
Your uncertainty about the future puts your nerves on edge now. You want concrete data you can trust, but facts keep unraveling right before your eyes. Yesterday’s fundamental assumptions morph into today’s erroneous conclusions.
Nevertheless, you possess an inner strength that enables you to pull away from the maddening crowds and reset your personal center of gravity. Once you have reestablished your authority, you can move ahead with confidence and determination.
You seek the limelight because you’re drawn toward performing for an audience. It really doesn’t matter if you’re not an actor or musician; you just want to be in front of others today, so you can spread your message far and wide.
Keep in mind sharing information about your cause is only half of the equation. You will be more effective if you complete the feedback loop by soliciting other people’s thoughts, too. Real communication consists of a combination of give-and-take.
You appear to have a problem with your ability to concentrate today. Oddly enough, the closer the deadline, the shorter your attention span. You must take decisive action to improve your mental clarity by eliminating all distractions from your surroundings.
Changing your current environment frees you to follow through with your original plans. Sometimes, the most efficient way to alter your internal process is by reexamining your external world and moving some pieces around to shake things up. Marshal Ferdinand Foch wrote, “The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.”
Conversations that explore alternate paths into the future can be totally captivating now. Although you intuitively understand the need to be practical, you’re more attracted to a discussion of ideas today, rather than finding down-to-earth solutions to a dilemma.
You’re intrigued by innovative approaches to long-standing problems, even if they’re totally unrealistic. Don’t try to force your thinking into a pragmatic box. Let your mind wander as it will; exercising your imagination is the healthiest thing you can do for your soul.
Circumstances may push you to a point where you realize that talk is cheap. Ironically, you might be the one who started an intense conversation about a delicate issue, even if others weren’t eager to join in.
Nevertheless, fruitful discussions only go so far. You don’t need to wait for someone else to take the lead; put your ideas into motion and see who steps up and joins you for the ride. It only takes one brave heart to get the ball rolling.
There isn’t enough time to engage with everyone who wants to talk with you today. In fact, most people seem to be a noisy distraction now. Nevertheless, there is much to be learned from others if you can push past your own assumptions.
Letting go of your certainty is the key to receiving a missing piece of information which unlocks the door to your success. Maya Angelou wrote, “Make every effort to change things you do not like. If you cannot make a change, change the way you have been thinking. You might find a new solution.”
For every job on your plate now, you have at least two or three different plans at your disposal. Although you may be capable of multitasking, you can only experiment with one approach at a time.
Rather than wasting valuable energy considering and reconsidering your options, just pick one and run with it. At this point, any action is better than none. Author Maria Robinson wrote, “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”
You are blessed with the gift of gab today, but you’re not interested in wasting words on mindless drivel. You might even walk away from a conversation that doesn’t meet your high standards.
However, don’t assume a holier-than-thou attitude when you disconnect from an interaction. There’s nothing wrong with carefully choosing where to spend your energy as long as you are always kind to others. Richard Branson said, “Respect is how to treat everyone, not just those you want to impress.”
Focusing on the present moment is difficult today because your thoughts keep drifting back in time. However, your mental excursions into the past are less nostalgic than part of a serious research project as you reclaim your personal history.
Unfortunately, your recollections can be addictive if you indulge in them too long. Remind yourself that you are on a mission; get what you came for and return to the here-and-now, which is where you must apply your newfound knowledge. Corrie Ten Boom wrote, “Memories are the key not to the past, but to the future.”
