drive and ambition
Gerard is aspiring, enterprising and forever following a bright and distant star, planning some new venture or investigating new potential. He is definitely "upwardly mobile" in either a material or spiritual sense. Gil Gerard aims high and is not content with a mere quiet, secure existence. Gil likes to stretch his limits, see how far he can go and take risks. He is a positive thinker, expects success for himself, and is philosophical about failures. Gerard is flexible and he bounces back from disappointments rather quickly, usually with another hopeful new idea he wants to try. His enthusiasm and confidence are contagious and enable Gil Gerard to enlist the aid and support he needs for his projects. However, Gil Gerard sometimes promises more than he can actually achieve, because he is overly optimistic or pays insufficient attention to the practicalities involved.
He also tends to get distracted and to have too many things going on at once. Although it is very difficult for him, there are times when Gil Gerard simply must cultivate commitment, perseverance and persistence in order to make his dreams and goals reality. Too often Gil Gerard falls short of what he could attain because he is unwilling to persist through the difficult or less exciting times.
Gil Gerard also enjoys competition and usually does not take it too seriously. Sports and entrepreneurial endeavors are good ways to channel Gil's energy.
He has passionate convictions and will fight for them when challenged. Gil Gerard is willing to dedicate a great deal of his energy and force to an important cause, and he will act decisively on his beliefs, rather than simply espousing them.
Sometimes Gerard gets so involved and identified with his ideas that he cannot really be receptive to anyone who opposes him philosophically.
Fits of temper and impatience, and a sudden, erratic sort of recklessness can all work very much against Gil Gerard, especially when he needs to be working cooperatively as part of a team or in a partnership. When he is upset or fired up about something, Gil often does things that are risky and outrageous. When out of balance, Gerard tends to be accident prone.
While Gil Gerard is often charged with energy and inspired about what he wants to do (as mentioned earlier), there is a dreamy, visionary, or passive side to him as well. His energy level may fluctuate from being superabundant to rather lax.
Ordinary life often seems drab and uninteresting to Gil and he must have something that stirs his imagination - a vision or ideal or dream to motivate him. Gil Gerard has a strong urge to act out his fantasies or to live his dream, and Gil Gerard will act where others merely talk or dream. Artistic creation, drama or other areas in which Gerard can express himself imaginatively are excellent for him.
Work that only serves his own narrow personal interests does not satisfy Gil Gerard. 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.
An inner conflict between the desire for greater opportunities and the desire to hold on to safe and predictable circumstances could make Gerard somewhat discontent. Gil Gerard longs for changes in his life, but may lack the tenacity to bring them about.
He is very sensitive to the inner qualities of sincerity, honesty, integrity and good will. Gil Gerard 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.
He is capable of overcoming tremendous odds, and of enormous self-discipline and focus. When Gil Gerard sets his sights on achieving something or is presented with a thorny challenge, it is his capacity for eliminating the superfluous, getting along with very little, and riding through tough times that enables Gil Gerard to triumph eventually.
Gerard may not feel like he has to work very hard or strive to achieve, either because he comes from a very comfortable background, or because inner contentment and satisfaction are more important to him than outward accomplishment. Gil Gerard could be quite successful in real estate, agriculture, or anything involving land.
Gil Gerard has a lot of energy and is determined and ambitious in the pursuit of his goals. But he has a tendency to change his aims or objectives frequently, is quite restless, and always ready and excited to start something new.
Gerard always need to have something going on and may restlessly look for new ideas and action. Gil likes change and variety and is likely to change his relationships frequently.
His resistance and stamina are inclined to be a bit low and Gil Gerard tends to be easily influenced by others. He may leave himself open to being corrupted by others and should guard against involvement in situations that he may later regret.
