drive and ambition
Once Dirk Bogarde sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Bogarde pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Dirk 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 Dirk Bogarde to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Dirk Bogarde has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Bogarde 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. Dirk Bogarde 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. Dirk'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. Dirk Bogarde also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
Asserting himself and being direct and forceful about what he wants is often very difficult for Dirk. Though he may have a great deal of energy and drive, Dirk Bogarde lacks confidence or simply the desire to put himself and his interests first. On the positive side, Bogarde can be very unselfish, working more for the benefit of others than for himself.
However, Dirk Bogarde denies his own desires and needs too much, and he is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage his finest efforts.
Dirk Bogarde needs to have a strong spiritual base to his life in order to achieve anything in concrete, objective terms. In other words, fulfilling any ambitions he has for himself will depend upon whether or not Bogarde feels connected to a higher source. Clarifying his own role or direction in life may take Dirk Bogarde some time, so he is likely to be a "late bloomer" when it comes to external manifestations and success in material terms.
Dirk Bogarde tends to want to take the easy road to success, and unless other factors in his chart suggest a capacity for effort or a lot of energy, laziness could interfere with achieving whatever ambitions Bogarde has. He tends to gain his objectives through his personal charm and appeal. Dirk Bogarde also possesses a fine aesthetic sense which could be a prominent factor in his career.
In his professional life, Dirk Bogarde is likely to earn a great deal of recognition and success. Early on in his career, prominent and influential people in his field are apt to notice Dirk and help him along. At some point, he himself is likely to be quite influential - at least in his chosen line of endeavor. Dirk Bogarde is destined for a leadership role.
Dirk very much wants to be in a position to be able to positively influence and help many people. However, he may believe that he has to sacrifice his idealism or convictions in order to achieve his ambitions. At times his desire for prominence, popularity or stature may make Dirk Bogarde do things that put him in a dubious position vis-à-vis his superiors.
He is very ambitious, diligent and industrious and seems to be blessed with a good dose of luck. Dirk Bogarde tends to succeed with his objectives on a big scale and can expect advantages, advancements and promotions in his occupation.
