drive and ambition
Once Jessica Alba sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Alba pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Jessica labors patiently and steadfastly until she achieves what she wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. She is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and she often shoulders more of the workload than her co-workers, usually without complaint. She often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. She prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to her success because once she gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Jessica Alba to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Jessica Alba has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before Alba gets going; but once she gets a momentum going, her energy level is strong and steady.
She is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Jessica Alba needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for her 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 she does. Jessica's stamina and persistence are her greatest assets, but they can also work against her; she can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Jessica Alba also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself as a result.
She has passionate convictions and will fight for them when challenged. Jessica Alba is willing to dedicate a great deal of her energy and force to an important cause, and she will act decisively on her beliefs, rather than simply espousing them.
Sometimes Alba gets so involved and identified with her ideas that she cannot really be receptive to anyone who opposes her philosophically.
While Jessica Alba enjoys challenging herself to extend her abilities or try new activities, she is apt to bite off more than she can chew. Failures or accidents due to overestimating her prowess or capacities and being overly eager and poorly prepared, may result. Fortunately these disappointments or blunders do not dampen Jessica's spirits or her ambitions permanently; she has a lot of resilience and optimism. Most likely Jessica Alba will need to develop her physical coordination and sense of timing in order to do some of the activities she dreams of doing.
Although enterprising and proactive, Jessica Alba is also capable of ample much self-discipline, patience and effort. She may swing from confidence and trust in the future to pessimism and doubt, when it comes to achieving her aims in life.
Alba frequently meets a tremendous amount of resistance whenever she wants to assert herself in a decisive way, or do something just for herself. This resistance comes from within (in the form of self-doubt, fear, or a heavy sense of responsibility to others), as well as from practical and circumstantial limitations. Especially when initiating a project or acting independently, Jessica Alba may tell herself that she is not really prepared, or that she is not good enough (yet), and she puts a lot of pressure on herself. Despite the obstacles, setbacks, or lack of support she encounters, Jessica Alba can accomplish a lot in a patient, steady fashion. However, she is apt to aim too low, and not realize how much she is truly capable of.
Jessica Alba should try to recognize that she does not have to justify her existence or prove her worth by her accomplishments.
She may be able to sustain a great deal of tension over a long period of time, but then Jessica Alba suddenly releases it by taking unexpected and very radical actions. Alba is not above challenging others for a decisive fight!
In order to achieve her ambitions in life Jessica Alba may well feels that she must make a significant break from her personal past, especially the influences of her childhood environment, her family relationships, or familial traditions. Alba is apt to be the black sheep, or the one who left home and never really returned.
What Jessica Alba wants to do in life may seem "off the wall" or "way out in left field" to some people.
She may have to overcome something in her background or personal past in order to achieve her long-range goals and ambitions. Sometimes Jessica Alba is apt to feel pulled in two different directions - what others expect of her or what she needs to do to progress, versus what her old conditioning or her emotional predisposition would have her do. Overcoming the pull of the past is the key.
Her professional goals and long-range ambitions may be vague and difficult for Jessica Alba to define for quite a long time. This is partly due to the fact that they are not very conventional, concrete, or worldly. Jessica 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 her role in life. On the other hand, Jessica Alba may simply be confused and seemingly not ambitious at all in the professional realm.
Alba may well have an unusual destiny or pivotal role to play in a drama that involves much more than her own personal ambitions and professional aims. This could involve uncovering secrets, bringing deception, cruelty, or injustice to light, or making fundamental changes in some field. Jessica's work may also include dealing with life and death situations, crises, and emergencies. Somewhere along the way, fate may force Alba's hand - and it may require some self-sacrifice on her part. On the other hand, her real work may be rather subtle - a quiet transformation of a particular area or field. Jessica Alba is meant to do in-depth work.
Jessica Alba tends to have a very deep soul-life and a great need for deep spiritual understanding and truth. Jessica has the ability to open herself up to the spiritual dimensions and what she may learn could prove to be of permanent value to her.
