approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Maria's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Maria Sharapova comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Maria Sharapova - her real motivation, which describes the kind of person she is at heart and where her true priorities lie. Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Maria Sharapova" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Maria a little better. This page describes the disguise Sharapova wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Maria Sharapova likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. She is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. She is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Sharapova must have something of her own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that she can develop and manage according to her own will and vision. Whatever Maria does, she does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. She likes to put her own personal stamp on it.
Maria Sharapova also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats her in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Sharapova will rarely confront the offender - she is too proud to do so - but she will lose her affection and respect for them. Maria dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Sharapova admires others who are strong individuals like herself. When Maria Sharapova befriends someone, Sharapova is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. She is very giving and generous, but her gifts are never anonymous - Maria expects recognition and appreciation for them. She also expects the intense loyalty that she offers to her dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Maria Sharapova often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as herself, for she does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If she is not in the leading role, she aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Maria Sharapova has great heart and courage, and people often look to her for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Maria always puts her best face forward and rarely allows others to see her hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Maria Sharapova also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although she does not like others to realize just how important it is to her.
Her outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. Her own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Maria more than anything else. Maria Sharapova feels that if she does her best where she is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Maria Sharapova which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Maria she is constantly scanning their inner motives, and she probably is. Sharapova sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and she may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which she perceives so clearly) against them. At times though, Maria Sharapova may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Maria should avoid looking always on the dark side.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Maria's manner and appearance regardless of her chronological age. Maria Sharapova also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Sharapova needs mental stimulation from her environment, or she will rapidly get bored.
Maria Sharapova seems tolerant, broad-minded, and well-educated or as if she has traveled widely. She radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. Sharapova is apt to have a significant impact on the people she encounters, without even realizing it - a positive, encouraging one.
She is assertive and bold. Maria Sharapova is willing to be the first person to speak up and make her position known, and to strike out on her own if necessary. Maria generally gets along better with men than with women because her approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. She can be a bit too forceful. However, Maria Sharapova's boldness is her calling card, and most people feels that she can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
In significant ways, Sharapova's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way she presents herself. As a result of this inconsistency, Maria Sharapova may be uncomfortable showing her instinctive responses and true feelings. She may put them aside, maybe even be ashamed of them.
When Maria Sharapova is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know her well may be quite surprised at her reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept herself, so that she does not act as if her emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Maria's personality. Sharapova can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Maria Sharapova may feel frustrated because she feels that she is not being perceived very clearly, that she does not make a powerful impression, that she is easily overlooked or discounted. If she does not wish to be "invisible", Sharapova must make some effort to define and clarify - both for herself and for the rest of the world - who Maria Sharapova is. On the other hand, Maria Sharapova may purposely create illusions about herself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
She is able to control her feelings and conduct herself in a very proper manner. Because of her inner shyness, Maria Sharapova tends to separate herself from others and gives the impression that she does not want to be talked to.
