    You may naturally feel comfortable unleashing controversial topics as part of your identity.

    You don’t mind making others feel uncomfortable, especially if you believe you are saying what must be said. You may think that you need to be a dramatic catalyst for change and so aren’t afraid to shake things up.

    You also may not realize the impact your actions and words have in the long run. You may casually make comments or decisions that have long term ramifications that you are hardly consciously aware of in the moment.

    When the dust settles, you’ll look at how the cataclysmic changes you set into motion have benefitted you or others and will laugh it off as if you meant to do that.

    Yet you don’t always realize how much damage is done when you slip on the proverbial banana peel and take down the whole table setting with you.

    Though crises and turning points may change your personality, focus and even your appearance, you will feel like the path you are set on aligns with who you were meant to be anyway.

    You may find it challenging to cope with major life changes and turning points.

    You may try to hold on to control and pretend everything is as it should be. Yet when the changes become too prevalent to ignore, you’ll throw yourself in head first, embodying the chaos and turmoil in some way.

    Finally, you’ll come to adapt your expectations and make necessary changes to your ambition so that you can succeed on your path while also recognizing the crisis and turning point you are facing.

    You couldn’t have planned it, and you certainly can’t put the genie back in the bottle. The most you can do is try to become comfortable recognizing the major life turning points when you are facing them. Instead of standing at the crossroads refusing to accept some aspect of your destiny, try to balance your need for control and your need to be flexible.

    You may avoid facing a major life challenge because it threatens your ambition. Yet you may come to find that this turning point was exactly the catalyst you needed to bring your ambition to reality in the first place.
