drive and ambition
Once Briana Banks sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment to it are extraordinary. Banks pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Briana labors patiently and steadfastly until she achieves what she wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. She is a reliable, consistent, and productive worker, and she often shoulders more of the workload than her co-workers, usually without complaint. The nitty-gritty work often falls to her. She prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to her success because once she gets started in a certain direction, is easy for Briana Banks to follow it through to its completion. Getting started is more difficult. Briana Banks has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before Banks gets going; but once she gets a momentum going, her energy level is strong and steady.
She is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievement. Briana Banks needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for her 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 she does. Her stamina and persistence is Briana's great strength but it can also work against her; she can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Briana Banks also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself in that way.
She has passionate convictions and will fight for them when challenged. Briana Banks is willing to dedicate a great deal of her energy and force to an important cause, and she will act decisively on her beliefs, rather than simply espousing them.
Sometimes Banks gets so involved and identified with her ideas that she cannot really be receptive to anyone who opposes her philosophically.
She is enterprising, ambitious, and has a strong desire to succeed in a big way. Ever on the lookout for new opportunities and promising new ventures, Briana Banks is willing to take risks if she senses that something is going to be a winner. No matter how much Briana accomplishes, she never seems to be completely satisfied. She always feels she can do more, and sets her sights on another goal. Briana Banks feels frustrated in limited circumstances, and she will leave secure and reasonably successful situations if they do not offer challenges and potential for growth and expansion in the future. Briana likes to keep stretching her limits, to see how far she can go. Sometimes Banks overextends herself or promises more than she can actually achieve, due to an overly optimistic or overly confident assessment of her own capacities. Briana Banks relishes healthy competition and she feels that it spurs her on to even greater achievements.
Although enterprising and forward-looking, Briana Banks is also capable of much self-discipline, patience, and effort. She may swing from confidence and trust in the future to pessimism and doubt, when it comes to achieving her aims in life.
Briana Banks possesses the gifts of endurance and perseverance, the willingness to work hard and seriously to achieve her objectives. Once she decides she wants something or makes a commitment, Briana Banks will do it "even if it takes forever". Self-discipline is natural to Briana and she instinctively realizes that any creative achievement is "10% inspiration, 90% perspiration". Banks chooses practical, realistic goals and pursues them step-by-step in a well-planned, orderly way. Briana Banks likes to concentrate on one thing at a time and she does a thorough job. She enjoys working in solitude, and often feels her best work is done when she is alone.
Her nature tends to be rather impatient and combative. Often subjected to circumstances beyond her control, Briana Banks frequently feels frustrated and should avoid violent encounters and dangerous activities that could lead to accidents, if she is not careful.
Positions of honor, affluence, influence, and stature in her community can be hers. Briana Banks feels she has a destiny which involves leadership or distinguishing herself in some line of endeavor. Briana possesses an innate sense of greatness or importance, and a strong drive to achieve recognition for her talent. Briana Banks should avoid excessive egotism and arrogant pride, for these could limit her opportunities.
