drive and ambition
Xiaoping is proud and ambitious and he strives to excel, stand out and be recognized for who and what he is. Deng Xiaoping has a very dominant ego and likes to be Number One. Deng finds it difficult to take orders from others or to stay in the background, and he hates being wrong; Deng Xiaoping always insists that he is right!
He is forceful, strong, energetic, determined and highly competitive. Deng Xiaoping plays hard, plays to win and does not give up easily. In fact, he sees life as a competitive sport or performance. Deng loves admiration and applause, and he has a strong sense of personal honor and integrity. Deng Xiaoping tends to be very self-confident, even arrogant. Because of his self-confidence, Deng is able to accomplish a great deal, but if his confidence is ever undermined, Deng Xiaoping becomes self-conscious, defensive and rather belligerent.
Xiaoping plays vigorously and enjoys competitive games and physical rough-and-tumble activities. Athletics and/or physical activities have great appeal for him. Deng Xiaoping takes the initiative in sports and also in romantic relationships: he is ardent in pursuing anything he desires.
He 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, Deng Xiaoping is willing to take risks if he senses a winner. No matter how much Deng accomplishes, he never seems to be completely satisfied. Deng Xiaoping always feels that he can do more, and sets his sights on another goal. Deng Xiaoping feels frustrated in limited circumstances, and he will abandon secure and reasonably successful situations if they do not offer challenges and future growth potential. Xiaoping likes to keep stretching his limits, to see how far he can go. Sometimes Xiaoping overextends himself or promises more than he can actually achieve, due to an overly optimistic or confident assessment of his own capacities. Deng Xiaoping relishes healthy competition and feels that it spurs him on to even greater achievements.
Deng Xiaoping seems to lack determination and has a sense of inferiority. He tends to think negatively about himself and is inclined to downgrade himself. But Deng Xiaoping has strong self-control, accepts hardship well and has the desire to overcome his difficulties.
He is inclined to be a tyrant and wants other people to submit to his wishes. In Deng's drive to gain power, he could be ruthless and brutal at times. On the other hand, Deng Xiaoping may have to struggle to resist being placed in someone else's hand and power.
Xiaoping 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 Deng Xiaoping under the difficult circumstances that he is willing to tolerate. His determination and capacity for self-denial often help Xiaoping get through the rough spots and achieve the goal he is aiming for.
Deng Xiaoping needs to have a strong spiritual base to his life in order to achieve anything in concrete, external terms. That is, fulfilling any ambitions he has for himself will depend upon whether or not Xiaoping feels connected to a higher source. Clarifying his own role or direction in life may take Deng Xiaoping some time, so he is apt to be a "late bloomer" when it comes to outward expression and success in material terms.
In many ways Deng's rise in the world is an easy one, aided by his personal charm and attractiveness, his ability to please people, and his excellent social instincts. Artistic ambitions are also an aspect of this.
Xiaoping can be rather antagonistic toward those in authority. Even without realizing it, he may convey this attitude and he may well be threatening to those in power. Thus, however well-meaning Deng Xiaoping is, he may find his initiatives or projects meet with little favor. Working independently might be Deng's best option.
Deng Xiaoping has a lot of energy and is determined and ambitious in the pursuit of his goals. But he has a tendency to change his aims or objectives frequently, is quite restless, and always ready and excited to start something new.
He is very generous and his style of life is likely to be grandiose. A very gracious host, Deng Xiaoping displays a warm heart and gladness when he meets other people. Deng has the ability to radiate his inner happiness and show his affection for others.
