drive and ambition
Once Gerald Ford sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Ford pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Gerald 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 Gerald Ford to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Gerald Ford has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Ford 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. Gerald Ford 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. Gerald'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. Gerald Ford also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
He is a doer and an achiever. Energetic, courageous, and often impatient, Gerald Ford will forge ahead with his plans regardless of others' reservations. In fact, Ford often feels other people get in his way and he prefers working on his own. Gerald is active, assertive, and rather competitive as well.
His ambitions and long-range goals in life are apt to be personal, subjective, and related to inner development or inner satisfaction. Others' recognition or accomplishing something great in material or public terms is quite secondary to Gerald.
A great deal of Ford's energy, attention, and fulfillment may be related to home, family, or fulfilling his heritage in some manner.
Gerald Ford 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 Ford feels connected to a higher source. Clarifying his own role or direction in life may take Gerald Ford some time, so he is apt to be a "late bloomer" when it comes to outward expression and success in material terms.
Gerald has an abundance of energy, drive, and spirit to accomplish just about anything he desires. Much can be accomplished thanks to Gerald's single-mindedness and zeal to get things done. Sometimes Gerald Ford pushes himself too hard without even realizing it, but sometimes even he needs to relax and stop doing. Gerald Ford has the reputation for being a go-getter and a good worker.
He is sensitive to everything around him and soaks up experiences like a sponge. Gerald Ford must avoid becoming depressed when things do not go his way. Ford also needs to overcome being somewhat timid and to build up his own self-image.
Gerald has good foresight, a great sense of purpose in his work, and the ability to cope with any situation. Having a great vocabulary enables Ford to come up with the right words at the right time. Gerald Ford seems to speak with wisdom and others heed what he says.
Optimistic and adaptable, Gerald Ford knows how to take advantage of opportunities and may find and apply unconventional methods to the solution of problems. Gerald likes variety and change and has a very good understanding of things.
