(March 21st to April 19th)
Because you got distracted by short-term instant gratification instead of thinking about and focusing on long-term payoff.
(April 20th to May 21st)
Because you continuously sought external validation instead of working on internal acceptance, trust, and perseverance.
(May 22nd to June 21st)
Because focused more on how other people viewed you and thought about you, rather than thinking about what you actually wanted and what made you the most intrinsically happy.
(June 22nd to July 22nd)
Because you refused to let go of grudges or of other people’s past transgressions against you – and this meant that all your energy went to pain, self-righteousness, and anger, rather than having this energy go towards moving forward, taking care of yourself, and doing the things that actually brought you joy.
(July 23rd to August 22nd)
Because you refused to analyze and take responsibility for your own mistakes – you wanted to believe that you were always faultless and blame other people, instead of learning from these mistakes and figuring out how to become a better and stronger person because of them.
(August 23rd to September 22nd)
Because you did the opposite of believe in yourself – you focused only on your own shortcomings, imperfections, and insecurities. And this made it impossible for you to put forth your best effort and your greatest talents towards the goals and dreams that you truly did care about.
(September 23rd to October 22nd)
Because rather than making decisions and committing to them, you drowned in all of the what-if’s and in your desires to please everyone. Which meant that you just rocked back and forth in the same place, rather than moving forward, even by one or two steps.
(October 23rd to November 22nd)
Because rather than being grateful for and proud of the things you did have and the things you did accomplish, you let yourself get distracted by what everybody else had. So instead of zeroing in on your life and figuring out how to move it in the direction you wanted, you wasted all of your time thinking about everyone else’s lives, which got you nowhere.
(November 23rd to December 21st)
Because you thought that being positive and optimistic would mean that many things would just work themselves out or happen for you, rather than deciding to put yourself outside of your comfort zone and work as hard and as optimistically as you possibly could, even though it is a very normal thing to struggle and fail more than you succeed.
(December 22nd to January 20th)
Because you thought that expecting the worst and assuming things would turn out poorly would set you several steps ahead of everyone else, when in reality all that this negative thinking did was pull you way far behind everyone else before you even began something.
(January 21st to February 18th)
Because you refused help from everyone, in every way – you kept your emotional worries to yourself and you ignored your own problems and you insisted on relying only on yourself. This made success a thousand times harder, because you declined support and encouragement from the loved ones who could have made your world so much easier and brighter.
(February 19th to March 20th)
Because you thought you needed permission from everyone around you to follow the dreams you wanted to follow – instead of just believing in yourself enough to listen to your gut and let it lead you in the right direction.
