drive and ambition
Once Claudia Cardinale sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Cardinale pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Claudia 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 Claudia Cardinale to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Claudia Cardinale has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before Cardinale 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. Claudia Cardinale 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. Claudia'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. Claudia Cardinale also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself as a result.
She is a doer and an achiever. Energetic, courageous, and often impatient, Claudia Cardinale will forge ahead with her plans regardless of the reservations of others. In fact, Cardinale often feels other people get in her way and she prefers to work on her own. Claudia is active, assertive and rather competitive as well.
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, Claudia Cardinale is willing to take risks if she senses a winner. No matter how much Claudia accomplishes, she never seems to be completely satisfied. Claudia Cardinale always feels that she can do more, and sets her sights on another goal. Claudia Cardinale feels frustrated in limited circumstances, and she will abandon secure and reasonably successful situations if they do not offer challenges and future growth potential. Cardinale likes to keep stretching her limits, to see how far she can go. Sometimes Cardinale overextends herself or promises more than she can actually achieve, due to an overly optimistic or confident assessment of her own capacities. Claudia Cardinale relishes healthy competition and feels that it spurs her on to even greater achievements.
When Claudia Cardinale wants something, she can be amazingly persistent and unrelenting - even a bit obsessed - although quiet about it. In fact Claudia may even hide her underlying intentions from friends. Whenever she does anything, she does so wholeheartedly and thoroughly - and if Claudia Cardinale does not want to do something that others wish her to do, she will somehow find a way out of it. Cardinale is strong, though subtle.
Deep, compelling drives that Claudia Cardinale does not entirely understand are likely to be the source of her rather extraordinary ambitions. She may find that a drive for dominance, power and control stem from the rather problematic and intense relationship Claudia had with one or both of her parents. If Claudia Cardinale is willing to delve deeply into her own fears and inner life and clear away much of the conditioning of her earliest years, she will indeed discover tremendous inner resources which can be used to fuel her rise in the world.
Claudia Cardinale really wants to leave her mark on the world in some way, to achieve stature and recognition for her contributions, and she is not willing to take a back seat - at least not for very long. In order to achieve her aims, though, Claudia Cardinale will have to compromise and "give" more than she may be willing to. Thus, conflicts with others, particularly important men in her life, may arise. To accomplish her goals, Claudia may have to set aside some of her self-centeredness, and learn from these men! However, Claudia Cardinale may also be required at some point to make a break in order to hold her own and fulfill her own destiny.
Claudia has an abundance of energy, drive, and spirit to accomplish just about anything she desires. Much can be accomplished thanks to Claudia's single-mindedness and zeal to get things done.
