drive and ambition
Andre Rison is extremely strong-willed and he pursues his goals and desires with passionate dedication and determination. He is capable of total concentration and tremendous discipline, and he is very difficult to influence or sway once his mind is made up. When Andre Rison wants something, Rison can be very one-sided and almost obsessed with it. He is very instinctive and does not always consciously know why he feels as strongly and deeply as he does.
He also tends to be secretive and unwilling to reveal his aims and intentions, and the intensity of his will and desire may not initially be apparent to others. However, Rison is very forceful in a quiet and subtle way. Andre Rison often manipulates or forces his will upon other people, without being overtly aggressive. He is not interested in confrontation but he is a formidable foe if he encounters opposition or aggression. Andre is courageous and has a rather primitive, raw side as well.
Rison plays vigorously and enjoys competitive games and physical rough-and-tumble activities. Athletics and/or physical activities have great appeal for him. Andre Rison takes the initiative in sports and also in romantic relationships: he is ardent in pursuing anything he desires.
Rison frequently meets a tremendous amount of resistance whenever he wants to assert himself in a decisive way or do something just for himself. This resistance stems from within (in the form of self-doubt, fear, or a heavy sense of responsibility toward others), as well as from practical and circumstantial limitations. Especially when initiating a project or acting independently, Andre Rison may tell himself that he is not really prepared, or that he is not good enough (yet), and he puts a lot of pressure on himself. Despite the obstacles, setbacks or lack of support he encounters, Andre Rison can accomplish a great deal with patience and perseverance. However, he is apt to aim too low and not realize how much he is truly capable of.
Andre Rison should try to recognize that he does not have to justify his existence or prove his worth through his accomplishments.
Andre Rison puts his heart and soul into everything he does. He is very industrious and usually acts according the way he feels. Andre Rison learns through his emotions and it is important that he trust his feelings and his hunches.
He is quite passionate, loves children, and is inclined to wish for a large family. In fact, Andre Rison is likely to become completely bound up in his marriage and family life.
Deep, compelling drives that Andre Rison does not entirely understand are likely to be the source of his rather extraordinary ambitions. He may find that a drive for dominance, power and control stem from the rather problematic and intense relationship Andre had with one or both of his parents. If Andre Rison is willing to delve deeply into his own fears and inner life and clear away much of the conditioning of his earliest years, he will indeed discover tremendous inner resources which can be used to fuel his rise in the world.
He may have to overcome something in his background or personal past in order to achieve his long-range goals and ambitions. Sometimes Andre Rison may feel pulled in two different directions - what others expect of him or what he needs to do in order to progress versus what his old conditioning or his emotional predisposition would have him do. Overcoming the pull of the past is the key.
Andre has confidence in himself and a healthy self-assured attitude. He makes up his own mind and has a clear idea of where he is headed. Andre Rison does not feel the need for recognition from others, but is likely to receive recognition anyway.
His resistance and stamina are inclined to be a bit low and Andre Rison tends to be easily influenced by others. He may leave himself open to being corrupted by others and should guard against involvement in situations that he may later regret.
