Once a Taurus sets their mind to something, others may as well step back. You seldom want to change anything as you move ahead, especially not your mind. And, usually that's fine because you are smart.
You're known as much for being stubborn and sticking to your ways as you are for your tenacity. The people closest to you know that you have your reasons, if you're standing firm on something.
But others may not always get your reasons. Being willing to explain your position calmly and rationally makes you more friends than enemies, and keeps your mood from tanking out of frustration. Go, Taurus!
