drive and ambition
George Sanders avoids direct confrontation as much as possible and is uncomfortable with aggressiveness, competition and personal power. His ego drive is not very dominant and Sanders is not especially ambitious or eager to push his way to the top. He may feel inadequate in situations that call for strong, forceful action. The only instance in which George Sanders will really fight is when he senses that his loved ones - or something dear to him- are being jeopardized, in which case he is a fierce defender. George Sanders has a very strong protective side. He acts on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone he perceives as threatening to George's home or family. However, George Sanders will rarely initiate a confrontation. His goals also tend to be very personal and centered on family closeness and inner satisfaction rather than worldly achievement.
He is sensitive to stress and does not handle a high-pressured, competitive atmosphere very well. George Sanders is very touchy, irritable and difficult to live with when there are many demands or stressful situations at work. His energy level varies and is very dependent on the emotional harmony (or lack thereof) in his home. A supportive partner is very instrumental in helping Sanders to achieve his goals and desires.
Asserting himself and being direct and forceful about what he wants is often very difficult for George. Though he may have a great deal of energy and drive, George Sanders lacks confidence or simply the desire to put himself and his interests first. On the positive side, Sanders can be very unselfish, working more for the benefit of others than for himself.
However, George Sanders denies his own desires and needs too much, and he is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage his finest efforts.
George Sanders has the gift of endurance and perseverance, as well as the willingness to work hard to achieve his objectives. Once he decides he wants something or makes a commitment, George Sanders will do it "even if it takes forever". Self-discipline comes naturally to George and he instinctively realizes that any creative achievement is "10% inspiration, 90% perspiration". Sanders chooses practical, realistic goals and pursues them step-by-step in a well-planned, orderly fashion. George Sanders likes to concentrate on one thing at a time and he does a thorough job. He enjoys working in solitude, and often feels he does his best work when he is alone.
George Sanders has a very active and fertile imagination and Sanders' ambitions are never strictly mundane, practical and concrete. George Sanders has a strong desire to act out his fantasies, dreams, visions and ideals. Artistic creation, drama, or other areas in which Sanders can express himself imaginatively are ideally suited to him. Ordinary life seems drab and uninteresting to Sanders, and he needs to have some lofty dream or something grander than his own narrow personal interests to live for. Sometimes Sanders may be confused about exactly how and where to direct his energy and he often drifts along rather than making clear decisions about what he wants. George Sanders has a passive side and at times lacks the will power, physical energy, strength and fighting spirit to achieve his aims.
Sanders is able to combine his vision with sharp perception and intellect, and therefore his actions are guided by common sense. George has great verbal ability and the gift of inserting his comments at the right time, but he may find it hard to stop talking.
George Sanders seems to be driven to succeed and he works indefatigably toward the realization of his goals. George 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.
He is very sensitive to the inner qualities of sincerity, honesty, integrity and good will. George Sanders notices these qualities (or the lack thereof) more quickly than others and brings them up frequently. He is philosophical about life and very perceptive, but may have an exaggerated sense of his own wisdom and depth of understanding of religious, metaphysical, artistic, or intuitive subjects.
George Sanders really wants to leave his mark on the world in some way, to achieve stature and recognition for his contributions, and he is not willing to take a back seat - at least not for very long. In order to achieve his aims, though, George Sanders will have to compromise and "give" more than he may be willing to. Thus, conflicts with others, particularly important men in his life, may arise. To accomplish his goals, George may have to set aside some of his self-centeredness, and learn from these men! However, George Sanders may also be required at some point to make a break in order to hold his own and fulfill his own destiny.
Sanders is intensely competitive and may engage in furious battles of will, numerous conflicts, and possible public controversy on the road toward meeting his objectives. George Sanders may be drawn to activities that are dangerous - in the line of fire, so to speak. He puts himself on the line. Anger or recklessness could be his downfall.
His drives and ambitions in life may seem crazy or eccentric to the more conservative people George knows. There may well be no security or safety net (no retirement pension, no insurance benefits) in the work George Sanders is engaged in. He is suited for freelancing, or professions that involve lots of change, innovation, variety, irregular schedules and the like. George Sanders should expect the unexpected and numerous ups and downs throughout his life. He may change courses often and try many different things.
Indecision and confusion over his ambitions or direction in life may hold George back from achieving anything solid, especially in his early life. He is very much a dreamer and his interests and inclinations may not translate very readily into concrete goals. Personal glory or accomplishment can never be Sanders' sole motivation or drive in life. Ministering to others in some way may be his calling, however. Alternatively, George Sanders could use his dreamy, imaginative energies in creative ways - in the arts, music or entertainment.
In many ways George's rise in the world is an easy one, aided by his personal charm and attractiveness, his ability to please people and his excellent social instincts. Artistic ambitions are another manifestation of such.
George Sanders tends to be a bit stubborn and wants to achieve his goals at any cost. Sanders is very independent, resents authority and wants to gain control over others. George Sanders is capable of extraordinary achievements, but may resort to drastic measures in order to succeed.
