drive and ambition
Once Dolores Donlon sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Donlon pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Dolores labors patiently and steadfastly until she achieves what she wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. She is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and she often shoulders more of the workload than her co-workers, usually without complaint. She often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. She prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to her success because once she gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Dolores Donlon to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Dolores Donlon has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before Donlon gets going; but once she gets a momentum going, her energy level is strong and steady.
She is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Dolores Donlon needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for her 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 she does. Dolores' stamina and persistence are her greatest assets, but they can also work against her; she can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Dolores Donlon also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself as a result.
Dolores Donlon expects to work hard for anything she accomplishes and she has no patience for people who do not pull their own weight. Work is a passion for Dolores at times, and she pushes herself too hard. Donlon can also be too demanding of the people she works with.
If her energy is not invested in a job or career, Dolores Donlon can become fanatical about her health, and may exercise or "work out" vigorously and perhaps excessively.
She 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, Dolores Donlon is willing to take risks if she senses a winner. No matter how much Dolores accomplishes, she never seems to be completely satisfied. Dolores Donlon always feels that she can do more, and sets her sights on another goal. Dolores Donlon feels frustrated in limited circumstances, and she will abandon secure and reasonably successful situations if they do not offer challenges and future growth potential. Donlon likes to keep stretching her limits, to see how far she can go. Sometimes Donlon overextends herself or promises more than she can actually achieve, due to an overly optimistic or confident assessment of her own capacities. Dolores Donlon relishes healthy competition and feels that it spurs her on to even greater achievements.
Although enterprising and proactive, Dolores Donlon is also capable of ample much self-discipline, patience and effort. She may swing from confidence and trust in the future to pessimism and doubt, when it comes to achieving her aims in life.
Dolores Donlon 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 Donlon's goal far more than openly expressing her anger would.
On the positive side, Dolores Donlon is capable of immense patience, endurance and tireless effort in order to attain her goals and desires. Dolores Donlon seems to have to work very hard, and without much outside help. However, if she can avoid a negative attitude and keep "plugging along", Donlon will achieve something substantial. Moreover, she is much more effective when working for someone else.
When Dolores Donlon wants something, she can be amazingly persistent and unrelenting - even a bit obsessed - although quiet about it. In fact Dolores may even hide her underlying intentions from friends. Whenever she does anything, she does so wholeheartedly and thoroughly - and if Dolores Donlon does not want to do something that others wish her to do, she will somehow find a way out of it. Donlon is strong, though subtle.
Donlon achieves her objectives and ambitions in life through her personal charm, attractiveness and ability to please others visually and/or emotionally. A career in the arts or entertainment world is possible for Dolores Donlon. Anything involving sales or promotion, particularly of beautiful or luxurious items, is an area she can flourish in. Vanity or indiscretions in relationships could lead Dolores Donlon to her downfall.
She is sensitive to everything around her and soaks up experiences like a sponge. Dolores Donlon must avoid becoming depressed when things do not go her way. Donlon also needs to overcome being somewhat timid and to build up her own self-image.
