Born today, you are a supremely confident and capable individual. Once you get your break, you're likely to follow that path to the pinnacle of success and enjoy all it brings in abundance. There is another side to you, however, that most people do not know, and of which they are completely oblivious: You harbor insecurities that threaten to hold you back or bring you down if they are allowed to get a firm hold on you. These doubts are the reason you have a "shadow self" that you work tirelessly to keep hidden from the world at large. This is a tall order, for you are likely to be widely known, at least professionally, so keeping such a big part of your life private may prove difficult in the extreme. If anyone can do it, however, you can -- and you feel you must!
There are two distinct paths for you to take, but you will only be able to take one of them. The first will be characterized by endeavors that favor others, that highlight your care and generosity; the second is one that allows you to focus squarely on yourself and your own needs and desires. Will you, then, be generous or self-centered in life? It's entirely up to you!
