drive and ambition
She is a perfectionist and has high standards for her own work. Lorelei Mahoney 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. Lorelei Mahoney strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and she becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Lorelei Mahoney 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, Lorelei Mahoney underestimates herself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Mahoney does apply herself diligently in a given area, she gradually gains self-confidence as she masters skills and develops expertise.
Lorelei Mahoney 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, Mahoney may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
Asserting herself and being direct and forceful about what she wants is often very difficult for Lorelei. Though she may have a great deal of energy and drive, Lorelei Mahoney lacks confidence or simply the desire to put herself and her interests first. On the positive side, Mahoney can be very unselfish, working more for the benefit of others than for herself.
However, Lorelei Mahoney denies her own desires and needs too much, and she is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage her finest efforts.
Ordinary life often seems drab and uninteresting to Lorelei and she must have something that stirs her imagination - a vision or ideal or dream to motivate her. Lorelei Mahoney has a strong urge to act out her fantasies or to live her dream, and Lorelei Mahoney will act where others merely talk or dream. Artistic creation, drama or other areas in which Mahoney can express herself imaginatively are excellent for her.
Work that only serves her own narrow personal interests does not satisfy Lorelei Mahoney. She may lack the competitive edge, the fighting spirit, the "me first" attitude that is often required for material advancement and success. She also tends to either overestimate or underestimate her own power and abilities.
Mahoney knows what she wants in life and has the ability to define her goals clearly. Being open-minded and frank, she has a good understanding of everything. Lorelei Mahoney may have been encouraged to learn to talk at an early age and now finds it easy to communicate.
Happiness and fulfillment in Lorelei's career are likely because she gives her all to it and will not make the sorts of compromises that others feel compelled to make in order to succeed. Self-expression and being her own person are very important to Mahoney.
Lorelei Mahoney's father or another important man in her life is likely to be of tremendous help to her. Her relationships with superiors and those in a position to boost her career are usually excellent.
Her professional goals and long-range ambitions may be vague and difficult for Lorelei Mahoney to define for quite a long time. This is partly due to the fact that they are not very conventional, concrete, or worldly. Lorelei 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, Lorelei Mahoney may simply be confused and lack professional ambition.
