drive and ambition
Kerouac 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. Jack Kerouac aims high and is not content with a mere quiet, secure existence. Jack 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. Kerouac 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 Jack Kerouac to enlist the aid and support he needs for his projects. However, Jack Kerouac 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 Jack Kerouac simply must cultivate commitment, perseverance and persistence in order to make his dreams and goals reality. Too often Jack Kerouac falls short of what he could attain because he is unwilling to persist through the difficult or less exciting times.
Jack Kerouac also enjoys competition and usually does not take it too seriously. Sports and entrepreneurial endeavors are good ways to channel Jack's energy.
It is not easy for Jack Kerouac to show the world at large his angry or competitive side, but his family sees this side of his more often. Temper tantrums, tumultuous family relationships, or a great deal of competition between Kerouac and one or more of his relations is likely. Jack Kerouac likes to be the one in charge in his home and he puts a lot of energy into making it the way he wants it.
Intensely restless, dynamic and energetic, he is always on the go. When Jack Kerouac wants something, he wants it NOW, and he acts decisively and impulsively, albeit sometimes hastily and prematurely. Impatient, high-strung, and often nervous and tense, Jack finds it difficult to slow down, pace himself or relax. He is fiercely individualistic and independent, self-willed and intolerant of restraints and restrictions imposed by others. Jack Kerouac has a reckless disregard for authority and can be extremely rebellious. Cooperating with others is not Kerouac's strong point! He is often brutally frank and abrupt with people, and can be quite impersonal when he is pursuing a desired goal. He may demonstrate an explosive temper when his will is blocked. Jack Kerouac has a superabundance of energy and he needs a great deal of personal freedom to do things in his own style and at his own pace.
While Jack Kerouac 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.
Kerouac dreams up creative solutions to problems and takes an imaginative, unusual approach to getting a job done. When difficulties arise, Jack Kerouac prefers to avoid conflict and confrontation in favor of more peaceful or subtle methods of resolving problems. Kerouac finds it satisfying to work in order to help others or for a cause that transcends his own narrow, personal interests. Jack Kerouac has an artistic flair and appreciates the colorful, unique or strange.
He is intensely willful and can create trouble for himself by rather unconsciously forging ahead, without realizing that he is trampling over people. Sometimes, if Jack Kerouac cannot get what he wants directly, he will try to dominate, manipulate, or seek power in a covert, subtle sort of way.
His self-control tends to be a bit weak and Jack Kerouac seems to crave excitement. He is subject to sudden changes and seeks emotional freedom. His wants and needs tend to be different than those around him and others may think he is crazy because of his impulsive actions.
He is rebellious and confident that he can do his own thing and still be accepted by the world around him. Because he is a freedom-lover, Jack Kerouac may find it difficult to relate to others and most of his relationships are likely to be very challenging.
Conflicts in his early childhood are apt to be played out in Jack's later professional life. Unresolved rivalry with a parent or sibling may result in antagonism toward superiors or competitors. If Jack Kerouac can work through some of these past events, he will have even more energy and drive to achieve positive goals.
He may have to overcome something in his background or personal past in order to achieve his long-range goals and ambitions. Sometimes Jack Kerouac is apt to feel pulled in two different directions - what others expect of him or what he needs to do to progress, versus what his old conditioning or his emotional predisposition would have him do. Overcoming the pull of the past is the key.
His drives and ambitions in life may seem crazy or eccentric to the more conservative people Jack knows. There may well be no security or safety net (no retirement pension, no insurance benefits) in the work Jack Kerouac does. He is suited for freelancing, or professions that involve lots of change, innovation, variety, irregular schedules, and the like. Jack Kerouac should expect the unexpected and numerous ups and downs in the course of his life. He may change course often, and try many different things.
Discipline, concentration, a realistic sense of what is attainable, and steady dedication to achieving his ambitions are the keys to Jack's progress. Jack Kerouac is apt to move slowly but constantly in the direction of his goals, and solid achievement is the outcome of this conservative approach.
Jack has two different career paths which appeal to him, and which may at some point be blended. The first has to do with the arts, entertainment, film, or music industry. The other is an involvement in the ministry, social betterment, charity or volunteer work. Jack Kerouac has a high degree of sensitivity and this compassion is apt to be a key factor in his professional decisions and overall goals in life.
