drive and ambition
She is a perfectionist and has high standards for her own work. Dana Plato often feels that if she wants something done right she must do it herself, for others do not do as thorough a job as she does. Doing a task well is very important to her, and she may labor over minute details that others would not bother with. Dana Plato strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and she becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Dana Plato can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that she will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that her efforts will simply not be good enough. She is usually modest and realistic in assessing what she can accomplish and, if anything, Dana Plato underestimates herself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Plato does apply herself diligently in a given area, she gradually gains self-confidence as she masters skills and develops expertise.
Dana Plato conserves her energy and paces herself so that she does not waste or diffuse her efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit her opportunities. In short, Plato may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
Plato is attracted to feisty, dynamic, strong-willed people, and she seems to need a healthy dose of fireworks in her personal relationships. Dana Plato can be very combative, or get involved with people who are. Ideally Dana will join forces with people who are energetic and ambitious, but not too domineering or aggressive.
Dana Plato struggles with feelings of discouragement, self-doubt, and the sense that life is a constant uphill battle. She is also prone to suppressing her feelings - especially aggressive or angry ones. This could lead to chronic resentment and bitterness, which actually undermines Plato's goal far more than openly expressing her anger would.
On the positive side, Dana Plato is capable of immense patience, endurance and tireless effort in order to attain her goals and desires. Dana Plato seems to have to work very hard, and without much outside help. However, if she can avoid a negative attitude and keep "plugging along", Plato will achieve something substantial. Moreover, she is much more effective when working for someone else.
Positions of honor, affluence, influence and stature in her community can be hers. Dana Plato feels that her destiny involves leadership or distinguishing herself in some way. Dana possesses an innate sense of greatness or importance, and a strong drive to achieve recognition for her talent. Dana Plato should avoid excessive egotism and arrogant pride, for these could limit her opportunities.
She is highly attuned to the intangible or unseen world. Thus, Dana's drive and ambitions in life are likely to be colored by her subtle awareness and her mystical or intuitive sensitivity. Imagination, "make believe", creative fantasy and the ability to visualize may also be aspects of her career. Dana Plato has the ability to "channel" healing or inspirational messages.
Plato may not feel like she has to work very hard or strive to achieve, either because she comes from a very comfortable background, or because inner contentment and satisfaction are more important to her than outward accomplishment. Dana Plato could be quite successful in real estate, agriculture, or anything involving land.
Dana has confidence in herself and a healthy self-assured attitude. She makes up her own mind and has a clear idea of where she is headed. Dana Plato does not feel the need for recognition from others, but is likely to receive recognition anyway.
