drive and ambition
Cat Stevens 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. Cat Stevens 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. Cat Stevens 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. Cat Stevens 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 Cat. Though he may have a great deal of energy and drive, Cat Stevens lacks confidence or simply the desire to put himself and his interests first. On the positive side, Stevens can be very unselfish, working more for the benefit of others than for himself.
However, Cat Stevens denies his own desires and needs too much, and he is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage his finest efforts.
Intensely restless, dynamic and energetic, he is always on the go. When Cat Stevens wants something, he wants it NOW, and he acts decisively and impulsively, albeit sometimes hastily and prematurely. Impatient, high-strung, and often nervous and tense, Cat finds it difficult to slow down, pace himself or relax. He is fiercely individualistic and independent, self-willed and intolerant of restraints and restrictions imposed by others. Cat Stevens has a reckless disregard for authority and can be extremely rebellious. Cooperating with others is not Stevens' strong point! He is often brutally frank and abrupt with people, and can be quite impersonal when he is pursuing a desired goal. He may demonstrate an explosive temper when his will is blocked. Cat Stevens has a superabundance of energy and he needs a great deal of personal freedom to do things in his own style and at his own pace.
He is able to see his objectives in life very clearly and wants to create his own good fortune. Quite energetic, Cat Stevens may want to express himself creatively. Inviting good cooperation with others, he is likely to achieve much popularity.
Cat Stevens has a healthy balance of idealism, optimism and vision for the future on the one hand, and a realistic sense of what can actually be achieved on the other hand. His judgment and business sense are usually quite sound. Cat possesses patience and the ability to accept limitations and frustrations on the path toward achieving his goals.
Older, more experienced individuals or mentors are likely to play a significant and beneficial role in Cat's life.
Language, words, communication, networking, clarity of speech or writing, being a messenger or go-between - these are key features in his career, as well as how Cat Stevens goes about achieving his goals and ambitions. "Work smarter, not harder" is Stevens' motto.
Indecision and confusion over his ambitions or direction in life may hold Cat back from achieving anything solid, especially in his early life. He is very much a dreamer and his interests and inclinations may not translate very readily into concrete goals. Personal glory or accomplishment can never be Stevens' sole motivation or drive in life. Ministering to others in some way may be his calling, however. Alternatively, Cat Stevens could use his dreamy, imaginative energies in creative ways - in the arts, music or entertainment.
Cat Stevens has a beautiful soul, is aesthetically inclined and has a love of fine arts. He may want to be involved in a career where art, acting or beauty is paramount. His parents are supportive and Cat is likely to have a harmonious home and business life.
He is a bit restless and always seems to be in motion. Cat Stevens probably had the desire to go his own way early in life, wanting to learn from his own mistakes and experiences. His plans for the future are far-reaching and Cat Stevens may choose an unusual career.
