drive and ambition
Georges Bataille seesaws between being too pushy, confrontational and insistent on doing things his way, and being too eager to please, without a clear, definite goal of his own. Georges Bataille strives for a balance between acting independently and assertively - and working cooperatively and interdependently with others. He may feel frustrated at times that he cannot simply do what HE wants and that he must always accommodate the needs and desires of others. Or he may feel hesitant to act in a positive, assertive manner if he does not have the support and approval of other people. Either way, he is not a loner. Georges Bataille achieves his goals by collaborating and joining forces with others, by being a team player. He is very concerned with the concept of fairness and becomes quite indignant and vocal if he senses someone is being taken advantage of. Georges Bataille avoids extremism and favors a balanced, moderate approach to living. He is unlikely to push himself too hard or to become fanatically driven to reach his goals.
Bataille is attracted to feisty, dynamic, strong-willed people, and he seems to need a lot of fireworks in his personal relationships. Georges Bataille can be very combative, or get involved with people who are. Ideally Georges will join with people who are energetic and ambitious, but not too domineering or aggressive.
Georges Bataille has a strong sense of mission and instinctively knows that in order to achieve anything great, one must eliminate superfluous activities and give oneself wholly to the task at hand. His zeal, enthusiasm and clarity of purpose enable Georges Bataille to succeed and to achieve whatever he sets his mind to. Georges Bataille has a strong will, but is usually quiet and understated by nature.
He is inclined to be a tyrant and wants other people to submit to his wishes. In Georges' drive to gain power, he could be ruthless and brutal at times. On the other hand, Georges Bataille may have to struggle to resist being placed in someone else's hand and power.
Georges Bataille needs to have a strong spiritual base to his life in order to achieve anything in concrete, external terms. That is, fulfilling any ambitions he has for himself will depend upon whether or not Bataille feels connected to a higher source. Clarifying his own role or direction in life may take Georges Bataille some time, so he is apt to be a "late bloomer" when it comes to outward expression and success in material terms.
Georges Bataille 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, Georges Bataille 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, Georges may have to put aside some of his self-centeredness, and learn from these men! However, Georges Bataille may also be required at some point to make a break in order to stand on his own and fulfill his own destiny.
Georges 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. Georges Bataille should avoid get-rich-quick schemes which promise tremendous returns for little energy expenditure. Even if they do seem to succeed, Bataille's ideals and values could be compromised.
