drive and ambition
Once Earl Campbell sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Campbell pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Earl 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 Earl Campbell to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Earl Campbell has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Campbell 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. Earl Campbell 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. Earl'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. Earl Campbell also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
He has passionate convictions and will fight for them when challenged. Earl Campbell is willing to dedicate a great deal of his energy and strength to an important cause, and he will act decisively on his beliefs, rather than simply espousing them.
Sometimes Campbell gets so involved, and identifies so much, with his ideas that he cannot really be receptive to anyone who opposes him philosophically.
Earl Campbell has a rather cocky, confident, we-can-do-it attitude that people in his environment pick up on quite readily. Inspiring, motivating, and encouraging others to go out and do their very best is one of Earl's innate gifts. Earl Campbell has faith in the power of action and boldness, and enjoys initiating new programs and projects.
Although enterprising and proactive, Earl Campbell is also capable of ample much self-discipline, patience and effort. He may swing from confidence and trust in the future to pessimism and doubt, when it comes to achieving his aims in life.
Earl Campbell struggles with feelings of discouragement, self-doubt, and the sense that life is a constant uphill battle. He is also prone to suppressing his feelings - especially aggressive or angry ones. This could lead to chronic resentment and bitterness, which actually undermines Campbell's goal far more than openly expressing his anger would.
On the positive side, Earl Campbell is capable of immense patience, endurance and tireless effort in order to attain his goals and desires. Earl Campbell seems to have to work very hard, and without much outside help. However, if he can avoid a negative attitude and keep "plugging along", Campbell will achieve something substantial. Moreover, he is much more effective when working for someone else.
Although he is patient and steady when pursuing an objective, when Earl Campbell finally loses patience he loses it completely! In addition to having great tenacity and perseverance, Earl has a daring and rebellious side as well:
He enjoys risky, exciting activities and cannot tolerate too much routine, tedium or inactivity. Unless other factors in his chart suggest staying power and the ability to follow through, Earl Campbell may be the person who initiates a new venture but cannot happily participate in the ongoing, sustained effort it requires. "Independent" is Campbell's middle name! Earl Campbell needs to be a totally free agent, to run his own show. Earl likes to introduce new concepts to people, and then move on.
Earl Campbell has a powerful will and when he wants something, he pursues it passionately and relentlessly until he achieves it. He may be so driven by his desire that he loses all objectivity. Earl Campbell often becomes compulsive, even obsessed, with doing or achieving something, no matter what the costs or how hard he must work for it. His forcefulness may be veiled or subtle, for often Campbell does not reveal his real aims and intentions to others until they cross him. Intense power struggles and relationships with a strong dominance/submissiveness theme are likely to erupt. Earl Campbell has enormous energy reserves, and is capable of extraordinary effort and great achievement if he uses his energies for constructive purposes.
Earl has courage and determination and the ability to sum up a situation quickly. Although somewhat tense and nervous, he takes advantage of his opportunities and act accordingly. Earl Campbell could do well in technical fields and his success could come suddenly.
Earl Campbell has a healthy balance of idealism, optimism and vision for the future on the one hand, and a realistic sense of what can actually be achieved on the other hand. His judgment and business sense are usually quite sound. Earl possesses patience and the ability to accept limitations and frustrations on the path toward achieving his goals.
Older, more experienced individuals or mentors are likely to play a significant and beneficial role in Earl's life.
Earl Campbell has a talent for putting fresh ideas and inspiration into practice. He is ready and willing to apply new ideas and methods, and he has a knack for gaining acceptance for a new idea and implementing it.
In order to achieve his long-range goals and ambitions, the process must be interesting and mentally stimulating, as Campbell gets bored with work that is not intellectually challenging. Earl Campbell needs variety and social stimulation as well. One problem he may have is saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, or to the wrong person. Earl needs to watch his words. At time, his tongue or even sense of humor can get Earl Campbell in trouble with superiors.
