drive and ambition
Once Eric Cantona sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Cantona pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Eric 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 Eric Cantona to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Eric Cantona has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Cantona 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. Eric Cantona 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. Eric'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. Eric Cantona also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
Quick-witted and sharp-tongued, Eric Cantona enjoys arguing, debating, and contesting other people's opinions. He is quite forthright and sometimes tactless. Cantona can be very convincing about his point of view, but he is prone to a "hard-sell" approach that sometimes backfires. Challenging mental work is an apt venue for Eric's aggressive intellect.
Conscientious, responsible, and serious about his work, Eric Cantona accomplishes a great deal through his dedication. He is the person in the office or company who follows through, quietly sustains the effort, and keeps on going in spite of tedium, setbacks or dry spells. This is often the key to Eric's success. However, Eric Cantona is humble about his accomplishments and contributions, and may thus fail to receive the recognition or recompense that he deserves.
An intense team-worker, Eric Cantona is likely to realize plans that he makes in common with others. He may prefer to work with partners rather than alone and could form relationships with others for the purpose of working together.
He is light-hearted and sociable and enjoys attending social gatherings. Most projects that Eric takes up should have a successful outcome. Eric Cantona also has a great desire for beauty and he likes to surround himself with beautiful things.
He is rebellious and confident that he can do his own thing and still be accepted by the world around him. Because he is a freedom-lover, Eric Cantona may find it difficult to relate to others and most of his relationships are likely to be very challenging.
Eric Cantona has a tendency to act without having a clear idea of what he wants to do with his life, leading to the wrong conclusions. Eric could also be attracted to the mystical and spiritual and may become interested in studying metaphysical subjects.
Eric has great courage and relentless energy to do whatever he sets his mind to. But he is inclined to want his own way and has a tendency to manipulate others. Because of his foolhardy actions at times, Eric Cantona is also prone to accidents.
His ambitions and long-range goals in life are apt to be personal, subjective and related to inner development or inner satisfaction. The recognition of others or significant accomplishments in material or public terms are quite secondary to Eric.
A great deal of Cantona's energy, attention, and fulfillment may be somehow related to his home, family or heritage.
His ambition and/or role in life involve communication, conveying messages, writing or speaking, languages, or being an intermediary. Sometimes Eric Cantona may feel that he has to work harder than others to get the word out or receive public recognition. "Work smarter, not harder" should be his motto.
Conflicts in his early childhood are apt to be played out in Eric's later professional life. Unresolved rivalry with a parent or sibling may result in antagonism toward superiors or competitors. If Eric Cantona can work through some of these past events, he will have even more energy and drive to achieve positive goals.
Discipline, concentration, a realistic sense of what is attainable and steady dedication to achieving his ambitions are the keys to Eric's progress. Eric Cantona is apt to move slowly but surely in the direction of his goals, and solid achievement is the outcome of this conservative approach.
Eric 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 Eric Cantona do things that put him in a dubious position vis-à-vis his superiors.
Eric has confidence in himself and a healthy self-assured attitude. He makes up his own mind and has a clear idea of where he is headed. Eric Cantona does not feel the need for recognition from others, but is likely to receive recognition anyway.
