drive and ambition
Once Lucille Ball sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment to it are extraordinary. Ball pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Lucille 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. The nitty-gritty work often falls to her. 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, is easy for Lucille Ball to follow it through to its completion. Getting started is more difficult. Lucille Ball has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before Ball 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 achievement. Lucille Ball 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. Her stamina and persistence is Lucille's great strength but it can also work against her; she can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Lucille Ball also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself in that way.
It is not easy for Lucille Ball to show the world at large her angry or competitive side, but her family sees this side of her more often. Temper tantrums, tumultuous family relationships, or a great deal of competition between Ball and one or more of her relations is likely. Lucille Ball likes to be the one in charge in her home and she puts a lot of energy into making it the way she wants it.
She is very serious about reaching her goals and feels that keeping her nose to the grindstone is the only way to do it. Hard work, persistent effort, and concentration upon a single objective are the ways Lucille Ball achieves her aims in life. Ball exercises great self-control, even self-denial, in order to accomplish what she desires. She meets obstacles stoically and will struggle patiently through difficult circumstances. Lucille Ball feels that she must rely on herself alone, that it is all on her shoulders, and Ball can be a harsh disciplinarian, expecting far too much from herself and from others. Often Lucille holds herself back, doubting her own power and ability. She may feel that she meets great resistance whenever she tries to assert herself or take initiative, and that is very frustrating to her. However, Lucille Ball has the power of endurance and a dogged determination to overcome all obstacles.
Ball lives her life to the fullest in a deeply loving and exciting way. Strongly instinctive, she acts by the dictates of her feelings. Lucille Ball radiates emotional balance and is sensitive, tactful and naturally friendly.
She is well aware of her personal charms and has the ability to utilize them to her advantage. Because of her strong need for love, Lucille Ball may engage in impulsive relationships at times. But her ability to give and receive love is well balanced.
Ball 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 Lucille's favor. Enjoying simplicity and cultivating peace enable Lucille Ball to evolve and to work through her challenges.
Her drives and ambitions in life may seem crazy or eccentric to the more conservative people Lucille knows. There may well be no security or safety net (no retirement pension, no insurance benefits) in the work Lucille Ball does. She is suited for freelancing, or professions that involve lots of change, innovation, variety, irregular schedules, and the like. Lucille Ball should expect the unexpected and numerous ups and downs in the course of her life. She may change course often, and try many different things.
Indecision and confusion over her ambitions or direction in life may hold Lucille back from achieving anything solid, especially in her early life. She is very much a dreamer and her interests and inclinations may not translate very readily into concrete goals. Personal glory or accomplishment can never be Ball's sole motivation or drive in life. Ministering to others in some way may be her calling, however. Or Lucille Ball could use her dreamy, imaginative energies in creative ways - the arts, music or entertainment field.
Lucille Ball 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. Lucille 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 Lucille's personal ambitions.
