drive and ambition
Lori McKenna seesaws between being too pushy, confrontational and insistent on doing things her way, and being too eager to please, without a clear, definite goal of her own. Lori McKenna strives for a balance between acting independently and assertively - and working cooperatively and interdependently with others. She may feel frustrated at times that she cannot simply do what HE wants and that she must always accommodate the needs and desires of others. Or she may feel hesitant to act in a positive, assertive manner if she does not have the support and approval of other people. Either way, she is not a loner. Lori McKenna achieves her goals by collaborating and joining forces with others, by being a team player. She is very concerned with the concept of fairness and becomes quite indignant and vocal if she senses someone is being taken advantage of.

Lori McKenna feels frustrated in limited circumstances, and she will abandon secure and reasonably successful situations if they do not offer challenges and future growth potential.

Lori McKenna needs to have a strong spiritual base to her life in order to achieve anything in concrete, external terms. That is, fulfilling any ambitions she has for herself will depend upon whether or not McKenna feels connected to a higher source.
