If you answered mostly B:
It sounds like you are stuck in a rut and perhaps life is currently not organised or you’ve lost some focus. You can gain perspective by rectifying anything that is holding you back. You may feel unsettled and limited which makes decision making difficult. Start small by completing tasks you may have been putting off. Start with the small things and life will begin to feel a lot clearer. The motivation you will get from doing these things will push you on to set bigger goals for achievement. If you want more creativity you could sit down and work out what it is you really want and set goals for achievement from there. Or try something new, you may uncover a new passion. You may need to look at your negative thoughts because these thoughts may be restricting you. If you want to achieve more success in life take a proactive approach and don’t let fear or barriers hold you back.
