drive and ambition
Once Kirk Kerkorian sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Kerkorian pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Kirk 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 Kirk Kerkorian to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Kirk Kerkorian has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Kerkorian 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. Kirk Kerkorian 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. Kirk'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. Kirk Kerkorian also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
He has passionate convictions and will fight for them when challenged. Kirk Kerkorian is willing to dedicate a great deal of his energy and strength to an important cause, and he will act decisively on his beliefs, rather than simply espousing them.
Sometimes Kerkorian gets so involved, and identifies so much, with his ideas that he cannot really be receptive to anyone who opposes him philosophically.
Kirk Kerkorian has a positive, "can-do" attitude and he tackles life's challenges with relish. He is self-confident and has a strong will to succeed, to see how much he can do and how far he can go. No matter what Kerkorian accomplishes, he does not rest on his laurels. Kirk wants to keep on going, to do even bigger things. He is proactive, enterprising and enthusiastic about new projects. He is not happy in situations that do not offer him challenges and the potential for future growth - no matter how secure or satisfactory they may seem in other respects. He enjoys competition, but Kirk Kerkorian competes mostly with himself, to see how much of his vision and potential he can really achieve. He makes a good leader, inspiring courage and confidence in others. Kirk Kerkorian usually enjoys good health and a high level of vitality.
Although enterprising and proactive, Kirk Kerkorian is also capable of ample much self-discipline, patience and effort. He may swing from confidence and trust in the future to pessimism and doubt, when it comes to achieving his aims in life.
Conscientious, responsible, and serious about his work, Kirk Kerkorian accomplishes a great deal through his dedication. He is the person in the office or company who follows through, quietly sustains the effort, and keeps on going in spite of tedium, setbacks or dry spells. This is often the key to Kirk's success. However, Kirk Kerkorian is humble about his accomplishments and contributions, and may thus fail to receive the recognition or recompense that he deserves.
Although he is patient and steady when pursuing an objective, when Kirk Kerkorian finally loses patience he loses it completely! In addition to having great tenacity and perseverance, Kirk has a daring and rebellious side as well:
Intensely restless, dynamic and energetic, he is always on the go. When Kirk Kerkorian wants something, he wants it NOW, and he acts decisively and impulsively, albeit sometimes hastily and prematurely. Impatient, high-strung, and often nervous and tense, Kirk finds it difficult to slow down, pace himself or relax. He is fiercely individualistic and independent, self-willed and intolerant of restraints and restrictions imposed by others. Kirk Kerkorian has a reckless disregard for authority and can be extremely rebellious. Cooperating with others is not Kerkorian's strong point! He is often brutally frank and abrupt with people, and can be quite impersonal when he is pursuing a desired goal. He may demonstrate an explosive temper when his will is blocked. Kirk Kerkorian has a superabundance of energy and he needs a great deal of personal freedom to do things in his own style and at his own pace.
Kerkorian is able to combine his vision with sharp perception and intellect, and therefore his actions are guided by common sense. Kirk has great verbal ability and the gift of inserting his comments at the right time, but he may find it hard to stop talking.
Kirk 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. Kirk Kerkorian grows by adhering to systems and plans, and taking one step at a time. Overnight success or instant enlightenment is not what Kerkorian aims for. His patient, well-balanced approach gives Kirk Kerkorian credibility with many different types of people, and he is likely to acquire an excellent reputation for being able to do big things without overreaching or becoming pretentious.
Positions of honor, affluence, influence and stature in his community can be his. Kirk Kerkorian feels that his destiny involves leadership or distinguishing himself in some way. Kirk possesses an innate sense of greatness or importance, and a strong drive to achieve recognition for his talent. Kirk Kerkorian should avoid excessive egotism and arrogant pride, for these could limit his opportunities.
