drive and ambition
Once Casey Affleck sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Affleck pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Casey labors patiently and steadfastly until he achieves what he wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. He is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and he often shoulders more of the workload than his co-workers, usually without complaint. He often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. He prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to his success because once he gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Casey Affleck to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Casey Affleck has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Affleck gets going; but once he gets a momentum going, his energy level is strong and steady.
He is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Casey Affleck needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for his 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 he does. Casey's stamina and persistence are his greatest assets, but they can also work against him; he can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Casey Affleck also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
Quick-witted and sharp-tongued, Casey Affleck enjoys arguing, debating, and contesting other people's opinions. He is quite forthright and sometimes tactless. Affleck can be very convincing about his point of view, but he is prone to a "hard-sell" approach which sometimes backfires. Challenging mental work is a good avenue for Casey's aggressive intellect.
Conscientious, responsible, and serious about his work, Casey Affleck accomplishes a great deal through his dedication. He 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 Casey's success. However, Casey Affleck is humble about his accomplishments and contributions, and may thus not receive the recognition or recompense that he deserves.
Although he is patient and steady when pursuing an objective, when Casey Affleck finally loses patience he loses it completely! In addition to having great tenacity and perseverance, Casey has a daring and rebellious side as well:
Fits of temper and impatience, and a sudden, erratic sort of recklessness can all work very much against Casey Affleck, especially when he needs to be working cooperatively as part of a team or in a partnership. When he is upset or fired up about something, Casey often does things that are risky and outrageous. When out of balance, Affleck tends to be accident prone.
He is well aware of his personal charms and has the ability to utilize them to his advantage. Because of his strong need for love, Casey Affleck may engage in impulsive relationships at times. But his ability to give and receive love is well balanced.
His attunement to the intangible or unseen world is very strong. Thus, Casey's drive and ambitions in life are apt to be colored by his subtle awareness, his mystical or intuitive sensitivity. Imagination, "make believe", creative fantasy, and the ability to visualize may be aspects of his career, also. Casey Affleck has the ability to "channel" healing or inspirational messages.

He tends to gain his objectives through his personal charm and appeal. Casey Affleck also possesses a fine aesthetic sense which could be a prominent factor in his career.
Casey has an aptitude for detective or research work, or any field that involves digging beneath the surface for the hidden elements. An interest in psychology, hypnosis, and utilizing subconscious forces or subliminal messages may well be a key factor in his career.
