    You are ambitious and strong willed. Though you try to fight for what you believe in, you sometimes lose your focus.

    You may become too distracted by how your mission reflects on you rather than the purpose and goal in general. You may become so lost in the “fight” that you forget what you are fighting for.

    It may take patience and practice for you to find a balance between strategizing for your campaign or mission as opposed to fighting only for an image you want to maintain. You may work against your best goals and prospects because of the tendency to burn bridges.

Your efforts may be noble but if you have not taken the time to analyze or collaborate, you may expend energy better directed in other ways. Slowing down can help you assert your ideas and remain energized while having better overall results.
