von Fürstenberg frequently meets a tremendous amount of resistance whenever she wants to assert herself in a decisive way, or do something just for herself. This resistance comes from within (in the form of self-doubt, fear, or a heavy sense of responsibility to others), as well as from practical and circumstantial limitations. Especially when initiating a project or acting independently, Diane von Fürstenberg may tell herself that she is not really prepared, or that she is not good enough (yet), and she puts a lot of pressure on herself.

However, she is apt to aim too low, and not realize how much she is truly capable of.

Pure, unrestrained self-expression may well be more important to her than "going places" in a worldly sense. This is not to say Diane von Fürstenberg will not progress or succeed, only that she will do it on her own terms.
von Fürstenberg can be rather antagonistic toward those in authority. Even without realizing it, she may convey this attitude and she may well be threatening to those in power.
