drive and ambition
Bryan Ferry avoids direct confrontation as much as possible and is uncomfortable with aggressiveness, competition and personal power. His ego drive is not very dominant and Ferry is not especially ambitious or eager to push his way to the top. He may feel inadequate in situations that call for strong, forceful action. The only instance in which Bryan Ferry will really fight is when he senses that his loved ones - or something dear to him- are being jeopardized, in which case he is a fierce defender. Bryan Ferry has a very strong protective side. He acts on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone he perceives as threatening to Bryan's home or family. However, Bryan Ferry will rarely initiate a confrontation. His goals also tend to be very personal and centered on family closeness and inner satisfaction rather than worldly achievement.
He is sensitive to stress and does not handle a high-pressured, competitive atmosphere very well. Bryan Ferry is very touchy, irritable and difficult to live with when there are many demands or stressful situations at work. His energy level varies and is very dependent on the emotional harmony (or lack thereof) in his home. A supportive partner is very instrumental in helping Ferry to achieve his goals and desires.
Bryan Ferry meets numerous challenges and possibly defeats in pursuit of his goals and desires, and his setbacks often occur because Bryan has been too rash or intent on working his own will regardless of the impact on others. Bryan Ferry is intense and passionate, and simply does not know when to stop sometimes! Recklessness with others can be a problem for Ferry.
He is enterprising, ambitious and has a strong desire to succeed in a big way. Forever on the lookout for new opportunities and promising new ventures, Bryan Ferry is willing to take risks if he senses a winner. No matter how much Bryan accomplishes, he never seems to be completely satisfied. Bryan Ferry always feels that he can do more, and sets his sights on another goal. Bryan Ferry feels frustrated in limited circumstances, and he will abandon secure and reasonably successful situations if they do not offer challenges and future growth potential. Ferry likes to keep stretching his limits, to see how far he can go. Sometimes Ferry overextends himself or promises more than he can actually achieve, due to an overly optimistic or confident assessment of his own capacities. Bryan Ferry relishes healthy competition and feels that it spurs him on to even greater achievements.
His competitive drive and lofty ambitions (commented upon earlier) feed on either intense spiritual idealism or a rather inflated, grandiose idea of what Bryan Ferry 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.
Ordinary life often seems drab and uninteresting to Bryan and he must have something that stirs his imagination - a vision or ideal or dream to motivate him. Bryan Ferry has a strong urge to act out his fantasies or to live his dream, and Bryan Ferry will act where others merely talk or dream. Artistic creation, drama or other areas in which Ferry can express himself imaginatively are excellent for him.
Work that only serves his own narrow personal interests does not satisfy Bryan Ferry. 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 may have to overcome something in his background or personal past in order to achieve his long-range goals and ambitions. Sometimes Bryan Ferry is apt to feel pulled in two different directions - what others expect of him or what he needs to do to progress, versus what his old conditioning or his emotional predisposition would have him do. Overcoming the pull of the past is the key.
His profession could involve physical strength and prowess, such as athletics, fire fighting, law enforcement, or the military. Bryan Ferry would never be happy in a quiet, sit-down job. Vigorous competition and strenuous work are undoubtedly key components of both what Bryan Ferry does and how he achieves his long-range goals.
He is very ambitious, diligent and industrious and seems to be blessed with a good dose of luck. Bryan Ferry tends to succeed with his objectives on a big scale and can expect advantages, advancements and promotions in his occupation.
Bryan Ferry tends to have a very deep soul-life and a great need for deep spiritual understanding and truth. Bryan has the ability to open himself up to the spiritual dimensions and what he may learn could prove to be of permanent value to him.
