drive and ambition
He is a perfectionist and has high standards for his own work. Jay Leno often feels that if he wants something done right he must do it himself, for others do not do as thorough a job as he does. Doing a task well is very important to him, and he may labor over minute details that others would not bother with. Jay Leno strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and he becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Jay Leno can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that he will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that his efforts will simply not be good enough. He is usually modest and realistic in assessing what he can accomplish and, if anything, Jay Leno underestimates himself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Leno does apply himself diligently in a given area, he gradually gains self-confidence as he masters skills and develops expertise.
Jay Leno conserves his energy and paces himself so that he does not waste or diffuse his efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit his opportunities. In short, Leno may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
Leno is attracted to feisty, dynamic, strong-willed people, and he seems to need a healthy dose of fireworks in his personal relationships. Jay Leno can be very combative, or get involved with people who are. Ideally Jay will join forces with people who are energetic and ambitious, but not too domineering or aggressive.
He may have to overcome something in his background or personal past in order to achieve his long-range goals and ambitions. Sometimes Jay Leno may feel pulled in two different directions - what others expect of him or what he needs to do in order to progress versus what his old conditioning or his emotional predisposition would have him do. Overcoming the pull of the past is the key.
Jay Leno perseveres through numerous obstacles, frustrations, delays, and setbacks in order to achieve his ambitions in life. Sometimes he may feel as if he were pushing a boulder uphill. Jay Leno should try to avoid bitterness or comparing his lot to that of others, as this could weaken his resolve.
Achieving his professional objectives or advancing in his career often requires considerable sacrifice on Jay's part. Specifically, Jay Leno often feels that he must deny or at least compromise some very essential aspect of his in order to succeed professionally, protect his reputation, or what have you - and this is something Leno may or may not be willing to do. Pure, unrestrained self-expression may well be more important to him than "going places" in a worldly sense. This is not to say Jay Leno will not progress or succeed, only that he will do it on his own terms.
