drive and ambition
Brett Murphy seesaws between being too pushy, confrontational and insistent on doing things his way, and being too eager to please, without a clear, definite goal of his own. Brett Murphy strives for a balance between acting independently and assertively - and working cooperatively and interdependently with others. He may feel frustrated at times that he cannot simply do what HE wants and that he must always accommodate the needs and desires of others. Or he may feel hesitant to act in a positive, assertive manner if he does not have the support and approval of other people. Either way, he is not a loner. Brett Murphy achieves his goals by collaborating and joining forces with others, by being a team player. He is very concerned with the concept of fairness and becomes quite indignant and vocal if he senses someone is being taken advantage of. Brett Murphy avoids extremism and favors a balanced, moderate approach to living. He is unlikely to push himself too hard or to become fanatically driven to reach his goals.
Asserting himself and being direct and forceful about what he wants is often very difficult for Brett. Though he may have a great deal of energy and drive, Brett Murphy lacks confidence or simply the desire to put himself and his interests first. On the positive side, Murphy can be very unselfish, working more for the benefit of others than for himself.
However, Brett Murphy denies his own desires and needs too much, and he is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage his finest efforts.
In some ways Brett Murphy may feel that he has little choice about his role in society. He is compelled either by unusual external circumstances or by an inner drive, to bring potentially dark, difficult, or taboo issues into public awareness. Brett delves into the hidden side of life - things which may have been purposefully concealed or repressed - and sheds light on them. Brett Murphy could come into direct conflict with the authorities or powers-that-be as a result. He is apt to have extraordinary ambitions, and could also become overly zealous and fanatical.
His professional goals and long-range ambitions may be vague and difficult for Brett Murphy to define for quite a long time. This is partly due to the fact that they are not very conventional, concrete, or worldly. Brett is apt to have more of a spiritual vocation or calling. Healing, counseling, the ministry, music, art - or some combination thereof - may well be part of his role in life. On the other hand, Brett Murphy may simply be confused and lack professional ambition.
