As a samurai you are courageous, determined, and analytical, thriving in challenging situations that others would shy away from. You work toward your goals like a war hero walks into battle, taking action and owning the confidence that you will not give up until you succeed.
Because courage and intuition are swords in your arsenal, you keep your composure even in the worst case scenario. While you are action-oriented and always pushing forward, you also spend a lot of time analyzing and strategizing. This inner reflection is what feeds your strong intuition, allowing you to react quickly in the face of conflict that might leave others paralyzed. You are a valuable asset to your team especially in high-stress situations, and they are thankful to be able to look to you for guidance.
Because there is no warrior without a war, challenges bring out the best of your strategic nature. Whether you are challenged by competitors or by difficult circumstances faced by your team as a whole, you fortify those around you and draw upon your strong intuition to quickly out-maneuver anything that tries to threaten your victory.
As a samurai, you have the mentality of an honorable warrior and you know that you have the strength to meet any challenge life throws at you with ample courage, refusing to back down. Competition engages your decisive mind to act quickly, as you know that he who strikes first wins. While victory is of high importance to you, as a samurai you also value your honor and keep to a strict moral code. You are a reliable force in your team.
You fear losing your composure, being unprepared, and dishonor. Fear is a healthy emotion that alerts us when it is time to get prepared. Fear alerts us to the fact that something needs assessing. When you live in the space of fear it can become paralyzing and confusing. The feelings of anxiety and overwhelm can present themselves as guarded and tense. The opportunity is to embrace the fear as your friend. Shift the shallow breath to a deep breath and ask yourself, “Is this fear justified?” If so, “What do you need to prepare for?” It is also an opportunity to shift your story. Are you telling the story of courage vs recklessness, confidence vs inflated ego, or dedication vs obsession?
