drive and ambition
Once Dane Cook sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Cook pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Dane 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. He often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. 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, it is easy for Dane Cook to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Dane Cook has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Cook 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 achievements. Dane Cook 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. Dane's stamina and persistence are his greatest assets, but they can also work against him; he can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Dane Cook also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
He is a team player and works well in collaboration with others who share his goals, ideals, and intentions. Dane Cook can coordinate group efforts and inspire people to work toward a shared goal.
Team sports are also a lot of fun for Dane, and he could be a leader, coach, or director of any group endeavor.
He is industrious and diligent and has the power to establish himself in the world. He is very ambitious and tends to strive for public recognition. Although he may not be looking for trouble, Dane Cook could easily get into disputes or quarrels.
Dane Cook strives to be in the public eye and may live by the motto "work brings distinction". Dane Cook has a positive attitude towards his family and his career and is able to work independently as well as with his colleagues in successful team-work.
Cook dedicates himself wholeheartedly to a cause, makes a great deal of sacrifices and does away with superfluous activities and interests. Others find his approach too severe and are unwilling to go along with Dane Cook under the difficult circumstances that he is willing to tolerate. His determination and capacity for self-denial often help Cook get through the rough spots and achieve the goal he is aiming for.
Positions of honor, affluence, influence, and stature in his community can be his. Dane Cook feels he has a destiny which involves leadership or distinguishing himself in some line of endeavor. Dane possesses an innate sense of greatness or importance, and a strong drive to achieve recognition for his talent. Dane Cook should avoid excessive egotism and arrogant pride, for these could limit his opportunities.
Deep, compelling drives which Dane Cook does not entirely understand are apt to be the source of his rather extraordinary ambitions. He may find that a drive for dominance, power, and control arises out of the rather problematic and intense relationships Dane had with one or both of his parents. If Dane Cook is willing to delve deeply into his own fears and inner life, clearing away much of the conditioning of his earliest years, he will indeed discover tremendous inner resources which can be used to fuel his rise in the world.
Dane Cook has a spiritual gift or vocation which colors his personal ambitions and drive for achievement. Helping people or serving the Whole is part of his role in life. Music, the arts, entertainment, and/or using imagery, visualization, or imagination can be aspects of Dane's work in the world.
Dane Cook achieves his professional goals and long-range ambitions through self-discipline, concentration, and climbing the mountain one step at a time. Unlike the lucky few for whom all doors seem to magically open, Dane has to formulate a realistic plan and follow it diligently in order to succeed. Dane Cook will have to pay his dues and endure a few setbacks. Patience is his ally.
His father or grandfather probably influenced Cook's choice of career, and will back him up - as long as Dane chooses to follow in their footsteps.
Dane has the ability to unite his own individuality with his community and considers other people's feelings as important as his. Cook works with others in successful cooperation and harmony and is a very good partner or colleague.
