drive and ambition
Gordy is aspiring, enterprising and forever following a bright and distant star, planning some new venture or investigating new potential. He is definitely "upwardly mobile" in either a material or spiritual sense. Berry Gordy aims high and is not content with a mere quiet, secure existence. Berry likes to stretch his limits, see how far he can go and take risks. He is a positive thinker, expects success for himself, and is philosophical about failures. Gordy is flexible and he bounces back from disappointments rather quickly, usually with another hopeful new idea he wants to try. His enthusiasm and confidence are contagious and enable Berry Gordy to enlist the aid and support he needs for his projects. However, Berry Gordy sometimes promises more than he can actually achieve, because he is overly optimistic or pays insufficient attention to the practicalities involved.
He also tends to get distracted and to have too many things going on at once. Although it is very difficult for him, there are times when Berry Gordy simply must cultivate commitment, perseverance and persistence in order to make his dreams and goals reality. Too often Berry Gordy falls short of what he could attain because he is unwilling to persist through the difficult or less exciting times.
Berry Gordy also enjoys competition and usually does not take it too seriously. Sports and entrepreneurial endeavors are good ways to channel Berry's energy.
He is likely to be known for his drive, energy, ambition and competitive spirit. He is likely to espouse a career based on his ability to take initiative, be a leader, or excel in physical strength and prowess. Berry Gordy most definitely wants to be a winner and will work hard to achieve it.
Berry Gordy has an adventurous, entrepreneurial spirit and the instincts to achieve major success. Competition and rivalry spur Berry Gordy on to do his best and push past his limits. He enjoys taking initiative and has positive expectations that generate positive results. At times, however, Berry Gordy is overconfident, cocky and vainglorious. Sports and business are both suitable arenas for Gordy.
He is dynamic, decisive and somewhat impulsive. Berry Gordy responds quickly and spontaneously to challenges, and enjoys vigorous physical activities that require fast reflexes and a good sense of rhythm and timing. Berry has an abundance of energy and vitality, and a restless desire to see progress and change - he hates stagnation. He is individualistic and makes a good leader, spearheading new projects and inspiring others to act.
His competitive drive and lofty ambitions (commented upon earlier) feed on either intense spiritual idealism or a rather inflated, grandiose idea of what Berry Gordy can actually accomplish. His energy level is apt to fluctuate from being very high, as noted earlier, to rather low, as mentioned in the following paragraphs.
While Berry Gordy is often charged with energy and inspired about what he wants to do (as mentioned earlier), there is a dreamy, visionary, or passive side to him as well. His energy level may fluctuate from being superabundant to rather lax.
Ordinary life often seems drab and uninteresting to Berry and he must have something that stirs his imagination - a vision or ideal or dream to motivate him. Berry Gordy has a strong urge to act out his fantasies or to live his dream, and Berry Gordy will act where others merely talk or dream. Artistic creation, drama or other areas in which Gordy can express himself imaginatively are excellent for him.
Work that only serves his own narrow personal interests does not satisfy Berry Gordy. He may lack the competitive edge, the fighting spirit, the "me first" attitude that is often required for material advancement and success. He also tends to either overestimate or underestimate his own power and abilities.
He is willing to fight his own battles and does not depend on others for support and encouragement. Berry Gordy has a tendency to think somewhat critically though, which could lead to arguments and quarrels.
He is very sensitive to the inner qualities of sincerity, honesty, integrity and good will. Berry Gordy notices these qualities (or the lack thereof) more quickly than others and brings them up frequently. He is philosophical about life and very perceptive, but may have an exaggerated sense of his own wisdom and depth of understanding of religious, metaphysical, artistic, or intuitive subjects.
Positions of honor, affluence, influence and stature in his community can be his. Berry Gordy feels that his destiny involves leadership or distinguishing himself in some way. Berry possesses an innate sense of greatness or importance, and a strong drive to achieve recognition for his talent. Berry Gordy should avoid excessive egotism and arrogant pride, for these could limit his opportunities.
Language, words, communication, networking, clarity of speech or writing, being a messenger or go-between - these are key features in his career, as well as how Berry Gordy goes about achieving his goals and ambitions. "Work smarter, not harder" is Gordy's motto.
Berry Gordy has a powerful drive for achievement and a penchant for athletics or some other very vigorous, challenging career. He is apt to push himself very hard, trying to outdo the competition. When possible, Gordy likes to work independently, blazing trails for others to follow. Impatience, recklessness, or an overly ego-centered approach to success could be his downfall. (Knowing Berry Gordy, however, he is likely to get right back on his feet!)
Indecision and confusion over his ambitions or direction in life may hold Berry back from achieving anything solid, especially in his early life. He is very much a dreamer and his interests and inclinations may not translate very readily into concrete goals. Personal glory or accomplishment can never be Gordy's sole motivation or drive in life. Ministering to others in some way may be his calling, however. Alternatively, Berry Gordy could use his dreamy, imaginative energies in creative ways - in the arts, music or entertainment.
