drive and ambition
Young is aspiring, enterprising and forever following a bright and distant star, planning some new venture or investigating new potential. She is definitely "upwardly mobile" in either a material or spiritual sense. Loretta Young aims high and is not content with a mere quiet, secure existence. Loretta likes to stretch her limits, see how far she can go and take risks. She is a positive thinker, expects success for herself, and is philosophical about failures. Young is flexible and she bounces back from disappointments rather quickly, usually with another hopeful new idea she wants to try. Her enthusiasm and confidence are contagious and enable Loretta Young to enlist the aid and support she needs for her projects. However, Loretta Young sometimes promises more than she can actually achieve, because she is overly optimistic or pays insufficient attention to the practicalities involved.
She also tends to get distracted and to have too many things going on at once. Although it is very difficult for her, there are times when Loretta Young simply must cultivate commitment, perseverance and persistence in order to make her dreams and goals reality. Too often Loretta Young falls short of what she could attain because she is unwilling to persist through the difficult or less exciting times.
Loretta Young also enjoys competition and usually does not take it too seriously. Sports and entrepreneurial endeavors are good ways to channel Loretta's energy.
Young is attracted to feisty, dynamic, strong-willed people, and she seems to need a lot of fireworks in her personal relationships. Loretta Young can be very combative, or get involved with people who are. Ideally Loretta will join with people who are energetic and ambitious, but not too domineering or aggressive.
Loretta Young 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 Young accomplishes, she does not rest on her laurels. Loretta 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 Loretta Young 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. Loretta Young usually enjoys good health and a high level of vitality.
Although enterprising and proactive, Loretta Young 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.
Young 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, Loretta Young 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, Loretta Young 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.
Loretta Young should try to recognize that she does not have to justify her existence or prove her worth by her accomplishments.
Her competitive drive and lofty ambitions (commented upon earlier) feed on either intense spiritual idealism or a rather inflated, grandiose idea of what Loretta Young 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.
Loretta Young has a streak of the pacifist or defeatist in her. Learning to assert herself in a strong, clear, forthright manner, and developing stamina in the face of obstacles are necessary to counter such tendencies. To accomplish all she is capable of, it would also be very beneficial for Loretta Young to work on building up her physical energy. Loretta needs to get regular exercise, eat healthfully, get plenty of rest (something she may require more of than average), and especially avoid activities and people that dissipate and waste her time.
She is highly ambitious and will drive herself (and others) mercilessly when she wants to achieve something. Competition can become deadly serious and rather ugly where Young is concerned, as if her very life depended on winning or conquering. Her relationships with men may be especially fraught with conflict and power struggles. She is capable of tremendous effort but Loretta Young must beware of burnout.
Young is able to combine her vision with sharp perception and intellect, and therefore her actions are guided by common sense. Loretta has great verbal ability and the gift of inserting her comments at the right time, but she may find it hard to stop talking.
Because of her somewhat negative attitude, Loretta could feel listless a great deal of time and is likely to become physically inactive. Loretta Young tends to become easily overwhelmed; her objectives tend to be unclear, and Young questions her ability to attain them.
Loretta has great courage and relentless energy to do whatever she sets her mind to. But she is inclined to want her own way and has a tendency to manipulate others. Because of her foolhardy actions at times, Loretta Young is also prone to accidents.
Loretta Young has a talent for putting fresh ideas and inspiration into practice. She is ready and willing to apply new ideas and methods, and she has a knack for gaining acceptance for a new idea and implementing it.
Young is able to do her work and take responsibility for overcoming her own problems and challenges in life, while at the same time being open to spiritual comfort, aid and guidance. A good balance between being well-grounded and being receptive to spirit or the inner world is working in Loretta's favor. Enjoying simplicity and cultivating peace enable Loretta Young to evolve and to work through her challenges.
Young gains her objectives and ambitions in life through her personal charm, attractiveness, ability to please others visually and/or emotionally. A career in the arts or entertainment world is possible for Loretta Young. Anything involving sales or promotion, particularly of beautiful or luxurious items, is an area she can succeed in. Vanity or indiscretions in relationships could lead Loretta Young to her downfall.
Loretta Young perseveres through numerous obstacles, frustrations, delays, and setbacks in order to attain her ambitions in life. Sometimes it may feel as if she is pushing a boulder uphill. Loretta Young should try to avoid bitterness or comparing her lot to others', as these could weaken her resolve.
Loretta Young possesses great zeal and passion for achieving her aspirations in life, and can be something of a fanatic when she sets her sights on a goal. Loretta could do research work, psychological investigation, even detective work - anything that involves delving beneath the surface for hidden elements. A great love of mystery and exploring the unknown fuels many of Loretta's personal ambitions.
Loretta's profession is apt to involve communications, language, carrying messages, sales, speaking, or teaching - put simply, getting ideas across. A great deal of social involvement, networking, and personnel skills also play a significant part in her professional role.
Her profession could involve physical strength and prowess, such as athletics, fire fighting, law enforcement, or the military. Loretta Young would never be happy in a quiet, sit-down job. Vigorous competition and strenuous work are undoubtedly key components of both what Loretta Young does and how she achieves her long-range goals.
The road to success, professional advancement, and fulfillment of her long-range goals is apt to be easier and smoother for Loretta Young than for many. Partly this is due to getting a great deal of support - financial, emotional, or both. Probably someone early in her life really believed in Loretta and had high expectations for her. Loretta Young contributes to her own success by having large goals, and by including, helping and enlisting the aid of friends and others in reaching those goals. A lack of selfishness or pettiness is a great boon to her. Whatever Loretta Young does is apt to be expansive and eventually quite prosperous.
