drive and ambition
Once Mario López sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. López pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Mario labors patiently and steadfastly until he achieves what he wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. He is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and he often shoulders more of the workload than his co-workers, usually without complaint. He often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. He prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to his success because once he gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Mario López to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Mario López has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before López gets going; but once he gets a momentum going, his energy level is strong and steady.
He is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Mario López needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for his 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 he does. Mario's stamina and persistence are his greatest assets, but they can also work against him; he can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Mario López also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
Mario López often buys things on impulse and he can be reckless with his material resources and money. Mario has certain possessions that he is extremely attached to and possessive of.
He is enterprising, ambitious and has a strong desire to succeed in a big way. Forever on the lookout for new opportunities and promising new ventures, Mario López is willing to take risks if he senses a winner. No matter how much Mario accomplishes, he never seems to be completely satisfied. Mario López always feels that he can do more, and sets his sights on another goal. Mario López feels frustrated in limited circumstances, and he will abandon secure and reasonably successful situations if they do not offer challenges and future growth potential. López likes to keep stretching his limits, to see how far he can go. Sometimes López overextends himself or promises more than he can actually achieve, due to an overly optimistic or confident assessment of his own capacities. Mario López relishes healthy competition and feels that it spurs him on to even greater achievements.
Although enterprising and proactive, Mario López is also capable of ample much self-discipline, patience and effort. He may swing from confidence and trust in the future to pessimism and doubt, when it comes to achieving his aims in life.
Conscientious, responsible, and serious about his work, Mario López accomplishes a great deal through his dedication. He is the person in the office or company who follows through, quietly sustains the effort, and keeps on going in spite of tedium, setbacks, or dry spells. This is often the key to Mario's success. However, Mario López is humble about his accomplishments and contributions, and may thus not receive the recognition or recompense that he deserves.
His competitive drive and lofty ambitions (commented upon earlier) feed on either intense spiritual idealism or a rather inflated, grandiose idea of what Mario López can actually accomplish. His energy level is apt to fluctuate from being very high, as noted earlier, to rather low, as mentioned in the following paragraphs.
Mario López has a streak of the pacifist or defeatist in him. Learning to assert himself in a strong, clear, forthright manner, and developing stamina in the face of obstacles are necessary to counter such tendencies. To accomplish all he is capable of, it would also be very beneficial for Mario López to work on building up his physical energy. Mario needs to get regular exercise, eat healthfully, get plenty of rest (something he may require more of than average), and especially avoid activities and people that dissipate and waste his time.
He is intensely willful and can create trouble for himself by rather unconsciously forging ahead, without realizing that he is trampling over people. Sometimes, if Mario López cannot get what he wants directly, he will try to dominate, manipulate, or seek power in a covert, subtle sort of way.
His energy may be a bit low and López does not seem to have enough stamina to resist external powers. Mario López could easily be used as a medium, or someone else may set him up as a tool to further their interests without Mario knowing what is really going on.
