drive and ambition
Once Carlene Begnaud sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Begnaud pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Jazz 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. She often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. 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, it is easy for Carlene Begnaud to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Carlene Begnaud has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before Begnaud 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 achievements. Carlene Begnaud 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. Jazz's stamina and persistence are her greatest assets, but they can also work against her; she can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Carlene Begnaud also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself as a result.
Carlene Begnaud expects to work hard for anything she accomplishes and she has no patience for people who do not pull their own weight. Work is a passion for Jazz at times, and she pushes herself too hard. Begnaud can also be too demanding of the people she works with.
If her energy is not invested in a job or career, Carlene Begnaud can become fanatical about her health, and may exercise or "work out" vigorously and perhaps excessively.
She 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, Carlene Begnaud is willing to take risks if she senses a winner. No matter how much Jazz accomplishes, she never seems to be completely satisfied. Carlene Begnaud always feels that she can do more, and sets her sights on another goal. Carlene Begnaud feels frustrated in limited circumstances, and she will abandon secure and reasonably successful situations if they do not offer challenges and future growth potential. Begnaud likes to keep stretching her limits, to see how far she can go. Sometimes Begnaud overextends herself or promises more than she can actually achieve, due to an overly optimistic or confident assessment of her own capacities. Carlene Begnaud relishes healthy competition and feels that it spurs her on to even greater achievements.
Although enterprising and proactive, Carlene Begnaud is also capable of ample 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.
Conscientious, responsible, and serious about her work, Carlene Begnaud accomplishes a great deal through her dedication. She is the person in the office or company who follows through, quietly sustains the effort, and keeps on going in spite of tedium, setbacks or dry spells. This is often the key to Jazz's success. However, Carlene Begnaud is humble about her accomplishments and contributions, and may thus fail to receive the recognition or recompense that she deserves.
Her competitive drive and lofty ambitions (commented upon earlier) feed on either intense spiritual idealism or a rather inflated, grandiose idea of what Carlene Begnaud can actually accomplish. Her energy level is apt to fluctuate from being very high, as noted earlier, to rather low, as mentioned in the following paragraphs.
Carlene Begnaud has a streak of the pacifist or defeatist in her. Learning to assert herself in a strong, clear, forthright manner and developing stamina in the face of obstacles are necessary to counter such tendencies. To accomplish all she is capable of, it would also be very beneficial for Carlene Begnaud to work on building up her physical energy. Jazz needs to get regular exercise, eat healthfully, get plenty of rest (something she may require more than an average amount of), and especially avoid activities and people who dissipate and waste her time.
She is intensely willful and can create trouble for herself by rather unconsciously forging ahead, without realizing that she is trampling over people. Sometimes, if Carlene Begnaud cannot get what she wants directly, she will try to dominate, manipulate or seek power in a covert, subtle sort of way.
Carlene Begnaud has a strong desire for public attention and the need to be important. Jazz wants to be recognized for her efforts and wants to be in a leading role. She is willing to cooperate and enjoys team work as the leader of a group.
She is attracted to careers, which are somewhat unusual, creative, or avant-garde, and offer Carlene Begnaud a maximum amount of freedom and independence. The nine-to-five routine is really not her cup of tea. Jazz may make her living in diversified ways rather than by focusing on one specific area or talent, and she is happiest when she can create a place in the world for her unique combination of diverse talents and interests. Carlene Begnaud finds it hard and unnatural to try to fit herself into a ready-made mold.
Begnaud knows how to discipline herself and faces difficulties with great courage. It may take time, energy and dedication for Carlene Begnaud to achieve her goals; and when she meets defeat, Jazz rises above it and continues on her way.
