drive and ambition
Once Angus Young sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment to it are extraordinary. Young pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Angus labors patiently and steadfastly until he achieves what he wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. He is a reliable, consistent, and productive worker, and he often shoulders more of the workload than his co-workers, usually without complaint. The nitty-gritty work often falls to him. He prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to his success because once he gets started in a certain direction, is easy for Angus Young to follow it through to its completion. Getting started is more difficult. Angus Young has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Young gets going; but once he gets a momentum going, his energy level is strong and steady.
He is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievement. Angus Young needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for his efforts, and cannot be content with only intangible rewards (such as having a good time, learning, or spiritual enrichment). Material well-being and security is also a large factor in determining what he does. His stamina and persistence is Angus' great strength but it can also work against him; he can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Angus Young also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself in that way.
Angus Young meets numerous challenges and possibly defeats in pursuit of his goals and desires, and his setbacks often occur because Angus has been too rash or intent on working his own will regardless of the impact on others. Angus Young is intense and passionate, and simply does not know when to stop sometimes! Recklessness with others can be a problem for Young.
Angus Young has a rather cocky, confident, we-can-do-it attitude which people in his environment pick up on quite readily. Inspiring, motivating, and encouraging others to go out and do their very best is one of Angus' innate gifts. Angus Young has faith in the power of action and boldness, and enjoys imitating new programs and projects.
Although enterprising and forward-looking, Angus Young is also capable of much self-discipline, patience, and effort. He may swing from confidence and trust in the future to pessimism and doubt, when it comes to achieving his aims in life.
Angus Young struggles with feelings of discouragement, self-doubt, and the sense that life is an uphill battle all the time. He is also prone to squelch himself, especially any aggressive or angry feelings. This can lead to chronic resentment and bitterness which actually undermines his goal far more than openly expressing his anger would.
Positively, Angus Young is capable of immense patience, endurance, and quiet steady efforts to attain his goals and desires. Angus Young seems to have to work very hard, and without much outside help. But if he can avoid a negative attitude about this, and "keep on keeping on", Young will achieve something substantial. He is much more effective working for someone else also.
Although he is patient and steady when pursuing an objective, when Angus Young finally loses patience he loses it completely! In addition to having great tenacity and perseverance, Angus has a daring and rebellious side as well:
He enjoys risky, exciting activities and cannot tolerate too much routine, tedium, or inactivity. Unless other factors in his chart suggest staying power and the ability to follow through, Angus Young may be the person who initiates a new venture but cannot happily participate in the ongoing, sustained effort it requires. "Independent" is Young's middle name! Angus Young needs to be a totally free agent, to run his own show. Angus likes to introduce new concepts to people, and then move on.
Angus Young has a powerful will and when he wants something, he pursues it passionately and relentlessly until he achieves it. He may be so driven by his desire that he loses all objectivity. Angus Young often becomes compulsive, even obsessed, with doing or achieving something, no matter what the costs or how hard he must work for it. His forcefulness may be veiled or subtle, for often he does not reveal his real aims and intentions to others until they cross him. Intense power struggles and relationships with a strong dominance/submissiveness theme are likely. Angus has enormous energy reserves, and is capable of extraordinary effort and great achievement if he uses his energies for constructive purposes.
Angus has the ability to verbalize his feelings and perceptions well. His judgment is keen and sharp, he is diplomatic and can express himself in good language. Angus Young initiates conversations with people and is never at a loss for appropriate remarks.
Angus has courage and determination and the ability to sum up a situation quickly. Although somewhat tense and nervous, he takes advantage of his opportunities and act accordingly. Angus Young could do well in technical fields and his success could come suddenly.
Angus Young has a good balance between idealism, optimism, and vision for the future on one hand and a realistic sense of what can actually be achieved on the other hand. His judgment and business sense are usually quite good. Angus possesses patience and the ability to accept limitation and frustration on the way to his goals.
Older, more experienced individuals or mentors are likely to play a significant and beneficial role in Angus' life.
Angus Young has a talent for putting fresh ideas and inspiration into practice. He is ready and willing to apply new ideas and methods, and he has a knack for gaining acceptance for a new idea and implementing it.
Sometimes his emotional or romantic interests detract Angus Young from his professional progress and the achievement of his long-range goals. Friendship with colleagues and especially superiors may be lacking, or prove to be a detriment to Young in a roundabout way. It seems that Angus must choose either business or pleasure - work or love. These two arenas simply do not go together very well for him.
