Failing to prepare is preparing to fail. A lack of planning will lead to anxiety this week. The best way to manage social relationships is to keep in mind that everyone is dealing with their own problems, so try to leave people better than you found them. Be tactful in your dealings with others.
Self-worth cannot be verified by others. You may be suffering from low esteem this week, for which the only prescription is a healthy dose of self-love. You are in control of who you are. Apply the expectations you have of others to yourself. Don’t expect results from excuses, and transform “I’ll do it tomorrow” into positive changes today.
Intelligence is not knowledge but the acceptance of what is with the imagination to achieve what can be. Use the power of visualisation to guide your thoughts, actions, feelings and attitudes. Attaining clarity about your own desires and goals is the greatest form of intelligence. Recognise self-defeating behaviours, and repeat patterns of behaviour that lead to positive results.
The propensity to trust others is an innate human condition. Do not feel guilty about having warm human feelings toward anyone. Recognise that time spent worrying about matters you cannot control is wasted, as is time spent worrying about those that you can. It is the nature of every person to make mistakes, but only a fool perseveres in error.
Confidence is the key to succeeding in a difficult challenge this week. Know that the world is run by people who have never done it before and that if you do not venture, you will not gain. Your fear of the unknown is disproportionate to the reality of the consequences. The good news is that you need not wait for a crisis in order to make changes.
Inertia is the result of the downward pull of habit. Only you can change the patterns in your life. Root out old, unproductive or counterproductive habits and establish new ones. Remember that although change may not be fast and is not always easy, changes made this week may shape the course of your life.
True success is not limited in its potential scope; it can be manifested in different ways by different people and during different times during one’s life. Attaining clarity about your own heart will help you articulate your self-knowledge and your knowledge of the world. You need not make choices or decisions to please others. Allow yourself to live in harmony.
There is no limit to where your dreams can take you if you are committed to the importance of what you are doing. Engage yourself in self-discovery this week. Know that self-discipline is a condition of personal growth and the attainment of excellence. Remember that a dead fish floats downstream but a live one swims upstream.
Career opportunities will be at the front of your mind this week. Do not allow your decisions to be driven purely by matters of income, and recognise that real success can come only from learning and growing. Keep your professional relationships in mind and proceed carefully.
The love you give to others is directly proportional to the love you receive yourself. The entire focus of your career strategy must be people-oriented, not process-oriented. Know that mental health is just as important as physical health in times of stress and that positive motivation is the only path to emotional stability.
Your expectations of social relationships may not be met this week, but know that trying to change the minds of others is futile. Do not concern yourself with looking for reasons, as this is what keeps you from new and exciting experiences. Do what is right for you, but keep in mind the feelings of others.
One of life’s many ironies is that selfishness is self-destructive. Know that the love and care we devote to ourselves can teach us how to love and care for others. A meaningful life is one that is not lived solely for oneself. Think about the impact of your actions before acting, and remind yourself that good character is of greater value than material success.
