Although Brandi Lyons appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), she is also a "warrior". Lyons sometimes feels torn between these two facets of her character: the sensitive, tenderhearted, home-loving side, and the assertive, competitive, risk-taking side. People who first meet Brandi Lyons often think that she is a "softy", but later find out that she is strong willed and pursues her goals aggressively.
She is a person who thrives on challenge, and she often feels that she must battle her way through life, relying on no one and nothing but her own strength, intelligence and courage. Brandi Lyons believes in being totally honest, true to herself and her own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are Lyons' gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Brandi Lyons craves the freedom to do things in her own way, and she works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not her style. Brandi likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Brandi Lyons loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then she is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for her. She is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though she may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Brandi Lyons also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Lyons, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Brandi Lyons believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Brandi Lyons hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting her own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for her.
She is basically aggressive in her attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. She is often so fired up about her own projects or goals that she inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Lyons' relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Brandi Lyons to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Brandi Lyons would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Brandi Lyons to do so.
Her career, reputation and public image are very important to Lyons. Brandi Lyons has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. She is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Brandi Lyons may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Brandi Lyons tends to see things from her perspective only and to be rather subjective. She also enjoys talking and expressing her views but does not always listen as well. Brandi Lyons has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
