drive and ambition
Once Dale Earnhardt sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment to it are extraordinary. Earnhardt pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Dale 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. The nitty-gritty work often falls to him. 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, is easy for Dale Earnhardt to follow it through to its completion. Getting started is more difficult. Dale Earnhardt has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Earnhardt 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 achievement. Dale Earnhardt 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. His stamina and persistence is Dale's great strength but it can also work against him; he can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Dale Earnhardt also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself in that way.
He has passionate convictions and will fight for them when challenged. Dale Earnhardt is willing to dedicate a great deal of his energy and force to an important cause, and he will act decisively on his beliefs, rather than simply espousing them.
Sometimes Earnhardt gets so involved and identified with his ideas that he cannot really be receptive to anyone who opposes him philosophically.
Dale Earnhardt has a powerful will and when he wants something, he pursues it passionately and relentlessly until he achieves it. He may be so driven by his desire that he loses all objectivity. Dale Earnhardt often becomes compulsive, even obsessed, with doing or achieving something, no matter what the costs or how hard he must work for it. His forcefulness may be veiled or subtle, for often he does not reveal his real aims and intentions to others until they cross him. Intense power struggles and relationships with a strong dominance/submissiveness theme are likely. Dale has enormous energy reserves, and is capable of extraordinary effort and great achievement if he uses his energies for constructive purposes.
He may have to overcome something in his background or personal past in order to achieve his long-range goals and ambitions. Sometimes Dale Earnhardt is apt to feel pulled in two different directions - what others expect of him or what he needs to do to progress, versus what his old conditioning or his emotional predisposition would have him do. Overcoming the pull of the past is the key.
Discipline, concentration, a realistic sense of what is attainable, and steady dedication to achieving his ambitions are the keys to Dale's progress. Dale Earnhardt is apt to move slowly but constantly in the direction of his goals, and solid achievement is the outcome of this conservative approach.
Dale Earnhardt has a sense of beauty and a good understanding of art. He enjoys beautiful things and has the ability to put his feelings into words. There is a light-hearted way about Dale Earnhardt, and he has a tendency to emulate the momentary ideals of beauty.
