The Taurus is one of the most stable signs in the horoscope. It’s very hard to intimidate a bull. It’s very hard to go head to head with a charging bull.
You can try, but chances are you probably aren’t going to make it. That’s how strong and solid the Taurus is.
However, there is no such thing as a perfect horoscope sign.
Just as Taurus people are strong in certain aspects of their lives, they’re also weak in certain aspects.
The interesting thing about the stability of the Taurus is that it is genuine.
It goes to the core of their being.
Taurus women and men are strong, confident, and bold. They can go into any situation at full speed and at full power, and take care of business.
It is quite awe-inspiring. It is quite impressive.
However, you probably might be thinking, “Don’t Leos do this? Aren’t Aries capable of this as well?”
Well, you have to understand that those two other horoscope signs are driven mostly due to a deep and profound insecurity. They operate from a fundamental hole in their personality.
They feel really weak inside, that’s why they need to project a lot of strength.
While the Leo can be genuinely strong, nine times out of ten, the Aries is projecting.
The Taurus is consistently strong. The Taurus is consistently solid.
This is why it’s a real shame that many Taurus often feel that they have to please others when they don’t really have to.
They just need to be themselves. By simply embracing their inner strength, they would be able to achieve more and be happier.
If you’re a Taurus, here are five signs you’re trying too hard to please others.
Sign 1: You Always Ask What Other People Are Thinking
It’s OK to ask other people for their feedback. However, feedback has its time and place. Feedback has a proper context.
If you’re always asking for what people think and factoring it to what you’re doing or what you’re going to do, make sure that you’re just asking for feedback.
In many cases, this is a sure sign that you’re not asking for feedback but asking for permission.
If this is the case, then you’re not living up to your fullest potential. You’re not exploiting your strongest strength.
Your strength is your ability to choose a direction, put 100% into it, and achieve results.
This is the complete opposite of making decisions by committee. When you’re always afraid that other people would have different opinions and you’re asking for their blessing, you’re in trouble.
Sign 2: You Make Most of Your Decisions Based on Fear
If you’ve made a decision based on your core convictions, then you’re fine.
You have to remember that there is no such thing as a 100% guarantee. There is no such guarantee.
Failure can happen. That’s just part of life.
We live in an imperfect world. There are many far-from-perfect things that can happen.
That’s just how it works.
You should expect this. You should get over it. You should protect yourself as much as you can. However, you need to move on.
Unfortunately, this is not happening if you are driven primarily by fear.
Taurus people who are hesitant tend to make a lot of mistakes. Taurus people who keep changing directions depending on which way the wind is blowing tend to fall short.
You are destined for greatness. You have the solidity, internal strength, and power to make it happen.
It really is a tragedy when you let your fear of failure get the best of you.
Expect more from yourself.
Sign 3: You Keep Looking Back to Your Failures
You’re trying to please others too hard when you let fear of failure get the best of you.
The most common way this plays out is when you keep going back to when you screwed up. You keep going back to when things went wrong.
I’m not saying that you should forget the past. I’m not saying that you should ignore the lessons of the past. It’s far from it.
What I’m saying is that you should get the lesson and stick with the lesson.
This is very different from recreating the past.
When you recreate a painful past memory, a lot of the negative emotions come back.
One of the most negative emotions, of course, is fear. If you keep looking back at your past failures, a lot of that fear comes back.
Worst of all, that fear is not confined to your past. It continues to haunt you in the present.
Nine times out of ten, it cripples you from making the hard decisions you need to make.
You have to understand that the more important the decision, the harder it will be to make.
However, hard decisions are what make great leaders.
Leaders aren’t great because their decisions are easy. Leaders aren’t impressive because their decisions are black and white.
There are a lot of gray areas out there.
You have to remember that you will be judged quite harshly if you screw up. But that’s part of the territory.
Allowing yourself to always rehash the past and get caught up in all these negative emotions is not going to do you any favors.
Instead, you are catering to the crowd. You are obsessing too much in pleasing others that you unleash all this negative energy that cripples you in the here and now.
Sign 4: Constantly Comparing Yourself to Others
The most effective way to make yourself feel insecure, inadequate, and worthless is to constantly compare yourself to others.
In fact, this rule applies to all people in the world. Even if you were to look at the richest people like Bill Gates, if he did this, he would be miserable.
Think about it. Bill Gates may be one of the world’s richest people, but he’s probably not in the list of the world’s greatest tennis players or the world’s greatest basketball players.
It all depends on the measurement you use. This is where constant comparison with other people to try and please them is pointless.
You just have to compare yourself with yourself.
Set a standard. Don’t stray from it.
As long as you hit the goal you set for yourself, you’ve won. Leave it at that.
Sign 5: You Focus Too Much on Winning
It’s understandable why many Taurus people would want people to think they are winners. After all, we all need outside validation from time to time.
However, Taurus people can easily turn this into an idol. They tend to obsess over it.
Instead of simply being admired or respected, they seek out to be adored.
Once you cross that line, it’s going to be a slippery slope downwards. You get addicted to the positive feedback, and as a result, you make less and less informed decisions.
As a result, you screw up more often.
It’s not uncommon for otherwise solid Taurus people to make really horrible decisions because they are looking for adoration.
You have to know which is which.
It’s OK to be respected. It’s not OK to seek to be adored.
There is a big difference.
