drive and ambition
She is a perfectionist and has high standards for her own work. Macy Gray 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. Macy Gray strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and she becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Macy Gray 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, Macy Gray underestimates herself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Gray does apply herself diligently in a given area, she gradually gains self-confidence as she masters skills and develops expertise.
Macy Gray 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, Gray may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
She is likely to be known for her drive, energy, ambition, and competitive spirit. A successful career based on her ability to take initiative, be a leader, or excel in physical strength and prowess is likely. Macy Gray most definitely wants to be a winner and will work hard to achieve that.
Macy Gray has a rather cocky, confident, we-can-do-it attitude which people in her environment pick up on quite readily. Inspiring, motivating, and encouraging others to go out and do their very best is one of Macy's innate gifts. Macy Gray has faith in the power of action and boldness, and enjoys imitating new programs and projects.
Her competitive drive and lofty ambitions (commented upon earlier) feed on either intense spiritual idealism or a rather inflated, grandiose idea of what Macy Gray 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.
Ordinary life often seems drab and uninteresting to Macy and she must have something that stirs her imagination - a vision or ideal or dream to motivate her. Macy Gray has a strong urge to act out her fantasies or to live her dream, and Macy Gray will act where others merely talk or dream. Artistic creation, drama or other areas in which Gray can express herself imaginatively are excellent for her.
Work that only serves her own narrow personal interests does not satisfy Macy Gray. 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.
Gray impresses others with her strong individuality and her powerful personality. Macy Gray puts all of her energy into getting ahead and attaining her ambitions and feels no desire to demonstrate her abilities to anyone, but her work is likely to be noticed.
Gray dedicates herself wholeheartedly to a cause, makes a great deal of sacrifices and does away with superfluous activities and interests. Others find her approach too severe and are unwilling to go along with Macy Gray under the difficult circumstances that she is willing to tolerate. Her determination and capacity for self-denial often help Gray get through the rough spots and achieve the goal she is aiming for.
She may have to overcome something in her background or personal past in order to achieve her long-range goals and ambitions. Sometimes Macy Gray is apt to feel pulled in two different directions - what others expect of her or what she needs to do to progress, versus what her old conditioning or her emotional predisposition would have her do. Overcoming the pull of the past is the key.
Macy Gray 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. Macy Gray should try to avoid bitterness or comparing her lot to others', as these could weaken her resolve.
Her self-control is well developed and Macy Gray is patient, cautious and responsible. Gray knows that success comes with hard work and is willing to do her share. Macy likes to be by herself and to do her own thing, but at times she may also feel lonely and deserted.
