drive and ambition
Pound is proud and ambitious and he strives to excel, stand out and be recognized for who and what he is. Ezra Pound has a very dominant ego and likes to be Number One. Ezra finds it difficult to take orders from others or to stay in the background, and he hates being wrong; Ezra Pound always insists that he is right!
He is forceful, strong, energetic, determined and highly competitive. Ezra Pound plays hard, plays to win and does not give up easily. In fact, he sees life as a competitive sport or performance. Ezra loves admiration and applause, and he has a strong sense of personal honor and integrity. Ezra Pound tends to be very self-confident, even arrogant. Because of his self-confidence, Ezra is able to accomplish a great deal, but if his confidence is ever undermined, Ezra Pound becomes self-conscious, defensive and rather belligerent.
Ezra Pound expects to work hard for anything he accomplishes and he has no patience for people who do not pull their own weight. Work is a passion for Ezra at times, and he pushes himself too hard. Pound can also be too demanding of the people he works with.
If his energy is not invested in a job or career, Ezra Pound can become fanatic about his health, and may exercise or "work out" vigorously and perhaps excessively.
Ordinary life often seems drab and uninteresting to Ezra and he must have something that stirs his imagination - a vision or ideal or dream to motivate him. Ezra Pound has a strong urge to act out his fantasies or to live his dream, and Ezra Pound will act where others merely talk or dream. Artistic creation, drama or other areas in which Pound can express himself imaginatively are excellent for him.
Work that only serves his own narrow personal interests does not satisfy Ezra Pound. He may lack the competitive edge, the fighting spirit, the "me first" attitude that is often required for material advancement and success. He also tends to either overestimate or underestimate his own power and abilities.
Ezra Pound seems to be driven to succeed and he works indefatigably toward the realization of his goals. Ezra has the ability and strength to master the greatest tasks, but tends to over-tax his nerves and physical strength to the point of a break down.
Ezra has grand aspirations and may be inordinately ambitious at times. That is, he is apt to be discontent with small successes and to feel like a failure unless he achieves extraordinary things. Ezra Pound should avoid get-rich-quick schemes which promise tremendous returns for little energy expenditure. Even if they do seem to succeed, Pound's ideals and values could be compromised.

Pound may well have an unusual destiny or pivotal role to play in a drama that involves much more than his own personal ambitions and professional aims. This could involve uncovering secrets, bringing deception, cruelty, or injustice to light, or making fundamental changes in some field. Ezra's work may also include dealing with life and death situations, crises, and emergencies. Somewhere along the way, fate may force Pound's hand - and it may require some self-sacrifice on his part. On the other hand, his real work may be rather subtle - a quiet transformation of a particular area or field. Ezra Pound is meant to do in-depth work.
