drive and ambition
She is a perfectionist and has high standards for her own work. Joan Collins often feels that if she wants something done right she must do it herself, for others do not do as thorough a job as she does. Doing a task well is very important to her, and she may labor over minute details that others would not bother with. Joan Collins strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and she becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Joan Collins can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that she will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that her efforts will simply not be good enough. She is usually modest and realistic in assessing what she can accomplish and, if anything, Joan Collins underestimates herself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Collins does apply herself diligently in a given area, she gradually gains self-confidence as she masters skills and develops expertise.
Joan Collins conserves her energy and paces herself so that she does not waste or diffuse her efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit her opportunities. In short, Collins may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
Joan Collins expects to work hard for anything she accomplishes and she has no patience for people who do not pull their own weight. Work is a passion for Joan at times, and she pushes herself too hard. Collins can also be too demanding of the people she works with.
If her energy is not invested in a job or career, Joan Collins can become fanatic about her health, and may exercise or "work out" vigorously and perhaps excessively.
Joan Collins has a positive, "can-do" attitude and she tackles life's challenges with relish. She is self-confident and has a strong will to succeed, to see how much she can do and how far she can go. No matter what Collins accomplishes, she does not rest on her laurels. Joan wants to keep on going, to do even bigger things. She is proactive, enterprising and enthusiastic about new projects. She is not happy in situations that do not offer her challenges and the potential for future growth - no matter how secure or satisfactory they may seem in other respects. She enjoys competition, but Joan Collins competes mostly with herself, to see how much of her vision and potential she can really achieve. She makes a good leader, inspiring courage and confidence in others. Joan Collins usually enjoys good health and a high level of vitality.
Her competitive drive and lofty ambitions (commented upon earlier) feed on either intense spiritual idealism or a rather inflated, grandiose idea of what Joan Collins can actually accomplish. Her energy level is apt to fluctuate from being very high, as noted earlier, to rather low, as mentioned in the following paragraphs.
Joan Collins has a very active and fertile imagination and Collins' ambitions are never strictly mundane, practical and concrete. Joan Collins has a strong desire to act out her fantasies, dreams, visions and ideals. Artistic creation, drama, or other areas in which Collins can express herself imaginatively are ideally suited to her. Ordinary life seems drab and uninteresting to Collins, and she needs to have some lofty dream or something grander than her own narrow personal interests to live for. Sometimes Collins may be confused about exactly how and where to direct her energy and she often drifts along rather than making clear decisions about what she wants. Joan Collins has a passive side and at times lacks the will power, physical energy, strength and fighting spirit to achieve her aims.
Joan Collins puts her heart and soul into everything she does. She is very industrious and usually acts according the way she feels. Joan Collins learns through her emotions and it is important that she trust her feelings and her hunches.
She is inclined to rely on other people and expects too much from them, leaving Joan Collins with a feeling of being short changed frequently. Always looking for an easy way out, Collins tends to sit back hoping for her ship to come in.
Somewhat self-willed and obstinate, Collins tends to withdraw from everything that she deem unnecessary. She may prefer to be alone and is inclined to cut herself off from other people frequently, resulting in loneliness and depression.
Innovation, discovery, originality, experimentation, and opening up new channels of understanding are important aspects of her life's work. Collins' ambitions in life, as well as the way she achieves those goals, are unique or "alternative". Concerned with future trends and the new, Joan Collins is apt to be ahead of her time in many respects.
Gaining her professional objectives or advancing in her career often requires considerable sacrifice on Joan's part. Specifically, Joan Collins often feels that she must deny or at least compromise some very essential aspect of her in order to succeed professionally, protect her reputation, or what have you - and this is something Collins may or may not be willing to do. Pure, unrestrained self-expression may well be more important to her than "going places" in a worldly sense. This is not to say Joan Collins will not progress or succeed, only that she will do it on her own terms.
She is inclined to deem herself irresistible and could give the impression of being a bit snobbish. Joan Collins tends to concentrate mostly on herself and expects others to adapt to her wishes. Very creative, Joan also strives to be the best artistically.
Collins tends to be guided by inner vision and strong subconscious insight. She seems to have innate psychic talents and others may consider Joan Collins a bit strange because of her interest in the occult and spiritual doctrines.
