One way or another, your efforts could be motivated by a belief that ‘what comes around, goes around.’ You’re right to think such a way because your current focus will benefit you sooner than you think it will. As much as you might wish your most cherished prize could be seized and was not so far off in the distance, a combination of faith and effort keeps nudging it closer.
A sense of restriction could be felt. Seemingly set-in-stone boundaries could be appearing from nowhere, causing you to wonder why your talents aren’t allowed to enjoy the freedom they deserve. However, rather than be resentful of this, look closely at what’s expected of you. Your consistent effort has got you to where you are now. Turning up the gas takes current successes to a very new level.
A home or family issue could require you to take sides or voice your opinion one way or another. To say what’s on your mind or in your heart, you need more information than what seems to be available to you. Your point of view is needed and will be appreciated, so offer it in an unbiased and honest way. You’ll be sending out a clear message that you’re taking the needs of all concerned by doing so.
You might feel as if you’re expected to bring an air of seriousness to a task or group effort. However, you see more merits in adopting a carefree, humorous approach to what needs doing. This attitude or approach might be exactly what’s needed to help others see a situation in a less restrictive way. There’s fun to be had doing what those around you believe to be tedious or even daunting, so lead the way.
You might feel a sense of frustration if your efforts in a particular area have paved the way for someone else to receive the lion’s share of praise and attention. Your determination to burn midnight oil or keeping your nose to grindstone could be overlooked as someone takes the baton and runs with it. Keep calm and carry on. Ways in which you are integral to the success of one plan will be recognized soon.
Praise coming your way might sound superficial or take the form of words you believe are being said to placate you rather than coming from the depths of someone’s heart. However, as one-dimensional as their message might sound, it’s better to receive that than nothing. Increasing your effort levels to receive more might be what it’s all about.
Someone’s words are lovely to hear, and you know they mean well, but you can’t help but wish they’d combine words with action in some way. You’re probably not expecting to be rewarded or applauded, but sugar-coated words will only go so far when it comes to motivating or inspiring you. If you want recognition over and above what you’re receiving, then make clear the particular way you’ve earned it.
Support received from friends or possibly co-workers is lovely to receive. However, you’ll need to reciprocate recognition or gratitude if they’re to continue giving in ways they are. Grand or dramatic gestures aren’t needed. Reminding others that you and they are working as a team makes clear how willing you are to offer your support when the time comes to do so.
Your keenness to strip away anything you believe is demanding too much time or attention could cause you to be too strict with removing distractions. Some of these exist for a good reason and hold more than a nugget of potential. Be selective about ideas or plans you believe to be superfluous or time-wasting. Otherwise, one proverbial baby could end up being thrown out with the bathwater, as they say.
You could be surprised and possibly delighted to discover a certain plan is going your way. However, this is probably a taste offered by the cosmos to reassure you that you’re thinking and working along the right lines. To pass this cosmic test, you’ll need to knuckle down and increase your efforts. A brief taste of success might be enough to encourage you to do so.
