It's all well and good setting a strict goal for ourselves. Whether it's big or small, achieving any objective is a case of getting from A to B. But if we stray even one degree from our trajectory, we can end up somewhere else. If making progress with a particular aspiration seems to require more effort than you thought it would, check your trajectory. It might need only one minor adjustment.
Check and double-check that you're dealing with facts and not relying on assumptions. We know that if we tell ourselves something enough times, we can believe it. That applies to premature conclusions we draw, too. Regardless of how particular circumstances appear, it's important to believe that your eyes can deceive you. Turn up the volume on your inner voice.
There are times when we must defend a strongly-held viewpoint. There are also times when we reach the end of a tether and need to draw attention to what we've had enough of. You could be keen to speak your mind and highlight what you've now reached patience limits with. But your approach needn't be confrontational or aggressive. Go gently, Gemini.
Within whatever appears complex, confusing, or uncertain is a nugget of positivity. If you can make an effort to identify it, then your attitude can alter helpfully. You have a genuine, tangible reason to be hopeful now. If you can remind yourself that the past is by no means a solid guideline for the future, then that reason will become clearer.
Sometimes, new information presenting itself can cause the most thought-through plan to need re-thinking. What emerges now or shortly could require you to reassess a particular strategy. But don't consider abandoning it. Stick with what you've started. You're about to be armed with essential information you didn't have previously. You'll soon see the advantageous position this puts you in.
There are times when we deliberately and unintentionally see what we want to see in certain situations. We can turn a convenient, blind eye to what shouldn't be ignored. You might need to accept and adapt to a particular change introduced recently. It may have turned from something subtle into something stronger. But don't be concerned and ignore it. It's something to welcome.
Some stories don't seem to 'make sense' at the beginning. This is often deliberate. A sense of confusion can encourage us to take a keener interest in the plot from the outset. But if too much time passes before this is made clear, our interest levels drop. Where something appears nonsensical now, try to give it a bit more time. The 'storyline' in a particular area will soon become clear!
Something you convey to a certain person and what they interpret is likely to be different from what you feel confident they understand. There can be no harm in removing assumptions by reiterating the point you're keen to make. Double-checking now can save hassle later. Extending a conversation could also allow someone to make a point they didn't make previously as well.
Our need to be entertained takes us into worlds offered by books, television, and films. We want to immerse and lose ourselves in worlds that differ significantly from our own. We soon become engaged with storylines with surprise plot twists and turns. A 'story' in your world looks set to experience a 'twist.' A comfort zone could be shaken, but you'll likely be glad for the wake-up call.
No helpful answers exist for rhetoric questions. But, if a question cannot be answered, then is our time not better spent on finding answers that can be found? You could spend valuable thinking time trying to find a solution to something that can be seen from various perspectives. That's what makes it unanswerable. Focus instead on making progress with a question that does deserve your attention.
Understandably, you could feel you must accept 'whatever will be, will be' in a particular area. Because you might believe the effort you made didn't bring the desired result, you could be less interested in investing any more. But support you need is coming. Its arrival can do much to restore your faith and boost your confidence.
The waiting, as the old saying goes, is the hardest part. It's frustrating when it's clear that a process can't be hurried. So, try to accept how you've done as much as you probably can to bring a result that will arrive but in its own time. You know, in your heart, what outcome to expect. Being armed with that knowledge can play a helpful part in keeping your patience levels high.
