drive and ambition
Dalai Lama 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. Dalai Lama 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. Dalai Lama 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. Dalai Lama 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.
It is not easy for Dalai Lama to show the world at large his angry or competitive side, but his family sees this side of his more often. Temper tantrums, tumultuous family relationships, or a great deal of competition between The Dalai Lama and one or more of his relations is likely. Dalai Lama likes to be the one in charge in his home and he puts a lot of energy into making it the way he wants it.

Older, more experienced individuals or mentors are likely to play a significant and beneficial role in Tenzin Gyatso's life.
To achieve his long-range goals and ambitions, the process must be interesting and mentally stimulating, as The Dalai Lama gets bored with work that is not challenging intellectually. Dalai Lama needs variety and social stimulation as well. One problem he may have is saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, or to the wrong person. Tenzin Gyatso needs to watch his words. His tongue or even his sense of humor can get Dalai Lama in trouble with superiors at times.
Dalai Lama possesses great zeal and passion for achieving his aspirations in life, and can be something of a fanatic when he sets his sights on a goal. Tenzin Gyatso could do research work, psychological investigation, even detective work - anything that involves delving beneath the surface for hidden elements. A great love of mystery and exploring the unknown fuels many of Tenzin Gyatso's personal ambitions.
He is likely to be quite sensual and has a strong desire to become one in soul and body with the object of his affection. Dalai Lama may have a strong feeling that by himself he is not quite complete and that he needs someone else to make him whole.
