Take advantage of this favorable time to promote yourself and ask for favors, as others sense your self-confidence and balanced focus. It’s time to stop making rash decisions and changing your mind at every turn. Trust yourself more! Let up a bit on the demands you make of yourself and others. We are all entitled to change our minds when we feel like it. We all do it. Whether it’s something as simple as backing out on plans or something as major as completely switching careers, we tend to beat ourselves up over the fact that we’ve had a total change of heart. It’s totally understandable (and even recommended) to find out what you like, what you don’t like, and keep making changes from there. Just make sure you do it with integrity. A great way to change your thoughts is to appreciate and enjoy what you already have. This is not to suggest that you should not aspire for a still better life. Enjoy whatever amount of success you have achieved instead of feeling sad about what you have not been able to achieve. There is nothing wrong with always fixing higher benchmarks or goals, but failure to reach them should not spoil your enjoyment of what you already have.
