drive and ambition
Once James Marsden sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Marsden pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, James 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 James Marsden to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. James Marsden has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Marsden 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. James Marsden 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. James' 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. James Marsden also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
James Marsden expects to work hard for anything he accomplishes and he has no patience for people who do not pull their own weight. Work is a passion for James at times, and he pushes himself too hard. Marsden can also be too demanding of the people he works with.
If his energy is not invested in a job or career, James Marsden can become fanatical about his health, and may exercise or "work out" vigorously and perhaps excessively.
Indecision and confusion over his ambitions or direction in life may hold James back from achieving anything solid, especially in his early life. He is very much a dreamer and his interests and inclinations may not translate very readily into concrete goals. Personal glory or accomplishment can never be Marsden's sole motivation or drive in life. Ministering to others in some way may be his calling, however. Alternatively, James Marsden could use his dreamy, imaginative energies in creative ways - in the arts, music or entertainment.
His career is apt to involve beauty, adornment, the arts or entertainment. His personal charm and appeal are significant factors in his profession as well. James Marsden is very good at selling and promoting - be it himself, his product or his company.
James Marsden achieves his professional goals and long-range ambitions through self-discipline, concentration, and climbing the mountain one step at a time. Unlike the lucky few for whom all doors seem to magically open, James has to devise a realistic plan and keep to it diligently in order to succeed. James Marsden will have to pay his dues and endure a few setbacks. Patience is his ally.
His father or grandfather probably influenced Marsden's choice of career, and will back him up - as long as James chooses to follow in their footsteps.
James very much wants to be in a position to be able to positively influence and help many people. However, he may believe that he has to sacrifice his idealism or convictions in order to achieve his ambitions. At times his desire for prominence, popularity or stature may make James Marsden do things that put him in a dubious position vis-à-vis his superiors.
Marsden relates to others with great feeling and empathy and is able to sense people's moods so that he can appeal to their deepest emotional concerns. James Marsden is likely to build his personal relationships on a spiritual basis.
