Louisa May Alcott
drive and ambition
Once Louisa May Alcott sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Alcott pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Louisa labors patiently and steadfastly until she achieves what she wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. She is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and she often shoulders more of the workload than her co-workers, usually without complaint. She often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. She prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to her success because once she gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Louisa May Alcott to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Louisa May Alcott has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before Alcott gets going; but once she gets a momentum going, her energy level is strong and steady.
She is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Louisa May Alcott needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for her 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 she does. Louisa's stamina and persistence are her greatest assets, but they can also work against her; she can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Louisa May Alcott also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself as a result.
She has passionate convictions and will fight for them when challenged. Louisa May Alcott is willing to dedicate a great deal of her energy and force to an important cause, and she will act decisively on her beliefs, rather than simply espousing them.
Sometimes Alcott gets so involved and identified with her ideas that she cannot really be receptive to anyone who opposes her philosophically.
Louisa May Alcott has the gift of endurance and perseverance, as well as the willingness to work hard to achieve her objectives. Once she decides she wants something or makes a commitment, Louisa May Alcott will do it "even if it takes forever". Self-discipline comes naturally to Louisa and she instinctively realizes that any creative achievement is "10% inspiration, 90% perspiration". Alcott chooses practical, realistic goals and pursues them step-by-step in a well-planned, orderly fashion. Louisa May Alcott likes to concentrate on one thing at a time and she does a thorough job. She enjoys working in solitude, and often feels she does her best work when she is alone.
Alcott dreams up creative solutions to problems and takes an imaginative, unusual approach to getting a job done. When difficulties arise, Louisa May Alcott prefers to avoid conflict and confrontation in favor of more peaceful or subtle methods of resolving problems. Alcott finds it satisfying to work in order to help others or for a cause that transcends her own narrow, personal interests. Louisa May Alcott has an artistic flair and appreciates the colorful, unique or strange.
Because of her somewhat negative attitude, Louisa could feel listless a great deal of time and is likely to become physically inactive. Louisa May Alcott tends to become easily overwhelmed; her objectives tend to be unclear, and Alcott questions her ability to attain them.
She is very sensitive to the inner qualities of sincerity, honesty, integrity and good will. Louisa May Alcott notices these qualities (or the lack thereof) more quickly than others and brings them up frequently. She is philosophical about life and very perceptive, but may have an exaggerated sense of her own wisdom and depth of understanding of religious, metaphysical, artistic, or intuitive subjects.
Louisa has grand aspirations and may be inordinately ambitious at times. That is, she is apt to be discontent with small successes and to feel like a failure unless she achieves extraordinary things. Louisa May Alcott should avoid get-rich-quick schemes which promise tremendous returns for little energy expenditure. Even if they do seem to succeed, Alcott's ideals and values could be compromised.
Innovation, discovery, originality, experimentation, and opening up new channels of understanding are important aspects of her life's work. Alcott's ambitions in life, as well as the way she achieves those goals, are unique or "alternative". Concerned with future trends and the new, Louisa May Alcott is apt to be ahead of her time in many respects.
Louisa has confidence in herself and a healthy self-assured attitude. She makes up her own mind and has a clear idea of where she is headed. Louisa May Alcott does not feel the need for recognition from others, but is likely to receive recognition anyway.
