drive and ambition
Once Ayatollah Khomeini sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment to it are extraordinary. Khomeini pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Ruhollah 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 Ayatollah Khomeini to follow it through to its completion. Getting started is more difficult. Ayatollah Khomeini has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Khomeini 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. Ayatollah Khomeini 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 Ruhollah's great strength but it can also work against him; he can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Ayatollah Khomeini also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself in that way.
Ayatollah Khomeini meets numerous challenges and possibly defeats in pursuit of his goals and desires, and his setbacks often occur because Ruhollah has been too rash or intent on working his own will regardless of the impact on others. Ayatollah Khomeini is intense and passionate, and simply does not know when to stop sometimes! Recklessness with others can be a problem for Khomeini.
Ayatollah Khomeini possesses the gifts of endurance and perseverance, the willingness to work hard and seriously to achieve his objectives. Once he decides he wants something or makes a commitment, Ayatollah Khomeini will do it "even if it takes forever". Self-discipline is natural to Ruhollah and he instinctively realizes that any creative achievement is "10% inspiration, 90% perspiration". Khomeini chooses practical, realistic goals and pursues them step-by-step in a well-planned, orderly way. Ayatollah Khomeini likes to concentrate on one thing at a time and he does a thorough job. He enjoys working in solitude, and often feels his best work is done when he is alone.
Ruhollah has an extraordinary drive for power and influence in the world, which can be used for good or ill, for his own personal aggrandizement or for achieving some wider aim.
Ayatollah Khomeini could be a channel for healing, transforming, revivifying energies in society or in individuals. His work will involve stimulating deep, fundamental changes and bringing to light hidden, taboo, repressed, or secret information and knowledge.
Khomeini may not feel like he has to work very hard or strive to achieve, either because he comes from a very comfortable background, or because inner contentment and satisfaction are more important to him than outward accomplishment. Ayatollah Khomeini could be quite successful in real estate, agriculture, or anything involving land.
In order to achieve his ambitions in life Ayatollah Khomeini may well feels that he must make a significant break from his personal past, especially the influences of his childhood environment, his family relationships, or familial traditions. Khomeini is apt to be the black sheep, or the one who left home and never really returned.
What Ayatollah Khomeini wants to do in life may seem "off the wall" or "way out in left field" to some people.
He is sensitive to everything around him and soaks up experiences like a sponge. Ayatollah Khomeini must avoid becoming depressed when things do not go his way. Khomeini also needs to overcome being somewhat timid and to build up his own self-image.
Ayatollah Khomeini has a sense of beauty and a good understanding of art. He enjoys beautiful things and has the ability to put his feelings into words. There is a light-hearted way about Ayatollah Khomeini, and he has a tendency to emulate the momentary ideals of beauty.
Khomeini always need to have something going on and may restlessly look for new ideas and action. Ruhollah likes change and variety and is likely to change his relationships frequently.
