drive and ambition
Once Jack Lemmon sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Lemmon pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Jack 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 Jack Lemmon to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Jack Lemmon has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Lemmon 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. Jack Lemmon 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. Jack'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. Jack Lemmon also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
He is a team player and works well in collaboration with others who share his goals, ideals, and intentions. Jack Lemmon can coordinate group efforts and inspire people to work toward a shared goal.
Team sports are also a lot of fun for Jack, and he could be a leader, coach, or director of any group endeavor.
His personal ambition is very high and Jack Lemmon has the desire to perform record achievements. Although his recuperative abilities are strong, Lemmon should be careful not to over-exert himself. Jack can also be somewhat ruthless in his pursuit of success.
He is industrious and diligent and has the power to establish himself in the world. He is very ambitious and tends to strive for public recognition. Although he may not be looking for trouble, Jack Lemmon could easily get into disputes or quarrels.
He is inclined to rely on other people and expects too much from them, leaving Jack Lemmon with a feeling of being short changed frequently. Always looking for an easy way out, Lemmon tends to sit back hoping for his ship to come in.
Jack has the patience and the stamina to realize his visions and bring them down to earth, a fine balance between hard work and realism, and a positive, hopeful spirit. Jack Lemmon grows through following systems and plans, and taking one step at a time. Overnight success or instant enlightenment is not what Lemmon aims for. His patient, well-balanced approach gives Jack Lemmon credibility with many different types of people, and he is apt to gain an excellent reputation for being able to do big things without overreaching or becoming pretentious.
Lemmon dedicates himself wholeheartedly to a cause, makes a great deal of sacrifices and does away with superfluous activities and interests. Others find his approach too severe and are unwilling to go along with Jack Lemmon under the difficult circumstances that he is willing to tolerate. His determination and capacity for self-denial often help Lemmon get through the rough spots and achieve the goal he is aiming for.
His aspirations in life are apt to be quite unusual, extraordinary, or ahead of their time. Jack Lemmon is a nonconformist, insistent on doing things his own way, and he will follow a zigzag course to the fulfillment of his ambitions.
Rebelling against authority seems to be one aspect of his life's plan. Jack Lemmon simply cannot force himself into a pre-cast mold of any kind.
His professional goals and long-range ambitions may be vague and difficult for Jack Lemmon to define for quite a long time. This is partly due to the fact that they are not very conventional, concrete, or worldly. Jack is apt to have more of a spiritual vocation or calling. Healing, counseling, the ministry, music, art - or some combination thereof - may well be part of his role in life. On the other hand, Jack Lemmon may simply be confused and seemingly not ambitious at all in the professional realm.
