Watch out for the sucker punch. Someone around you is trying to get more than they deserve. They’ll use misdirection to pull your focus over here, when it should really be over there. Don’t let others distract you and keep you from doing what you need to get done. Their motives are not in your best interest.
Wands represent the essence of Enterprise & Inaction, Inspiration & Pessimism, Distinction & Disregard.
Someone is trying to use you for their own gains by taking advantage of your work and focus. Humility is one thing, but sometimes you need to stand up and be proud of yourself for what you have accomplished. “Ego” is not a bad word or a bad thing to have. A healthy ego is what’s needed for today and you must find that balance between not enough and too much within yourself.
Whither someone is trying to ride on your coat tails, or they’re simply trying to claim your work as theirs; today is a day to be wary of those who don’t have your best interests to heart. They’re trying to manipulate you so that they can claim credit for your hard work, while they’re distracting you with something that is totally irrelevant.
Make sure you’re making it known and abundantly clear to higher ups what you’ve produced and what has been a team effort. Standing up for yourself and showing confidence isn’t the same as being arrogant and egotistical. Stop thinking that your value isn’t worth as much as the other person because you’re afraid to strut a little.
When someone else tries to take credit for your work, or the work of the whole team; speak up. There’s nothing wrong with interjecting your own side of the story to share the accolades of everyone who has participated. You don’t have to put someone else down while you’re doing it; unless they’re out and out lying. Simply make sure everyone is getting the credit they deserve, including yourself.
You’ve worked hard and you can be proud of your efforts and what you have accomplished thus far. Don’t shy away from what you know or what you’ve learned or what you’ve achieved. Stand up straight, be proud of yourself and let those who matter most know what you’ve accomplished and completed. The confidence you have in yourself will go a long way to getting you further down the road to your ultimate goals.
Confidence vs Arrogance : When does ego become a problem?
What one person views as confidence, another person will view as arrogance. It’s a fine line that doesn’t exist on a set standard. So when do you know when the line has been crossed and when it’s simply a healthy ego of self?
