Marion Zimmer Bradley
drive and ambition
Once Marion Zimmer Bradley sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Bradley pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Marion 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 Marion Zimmer Bradley to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Marion Zimmer Bradley has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before Bradley 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. Marion Zimmer Bradley 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. Marion'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. Marion Zimmer Bradley also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself as a result.
She has passionate convictions and will fight for them when challenged. Marion Zimmer Bradley 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 Bradley gets so involved and identified with her ideas that she cannot really be receptive to anyone who opposes her philosophically.
Bradley dreams up creative solutions to problems and takes an imaginative, unusual approach to getting a job done. When difficulties arise, Marion Zimmer Bradley prefers to avoid conflict and confrontation in favor of more peaceful or subtle methods of resolving problems. Bradley finds it satisfying to work in order to help others or for a cause that transcends her own narrow, personal interests.

Language, words, communication, networking, clarity of speech or writing, being a messenger or go-between - these are key features in her career, as well as how Marion Zimmer Bradley goes about achieving her goals and ambitions. "Work smarter, not harder" is Bradley's motto.
Indecision and confusion over her ambitions or direction in life may hold Marion 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 Bradley's sole motivation or drive in life. Ministering to others in some way may be her calling, however. Or Marion Zimmer Bradley could use her dreamy, imaginative energies in creative ways - the arts, music or entertainment field.
She is very adaptable, and because of her tactful, obliging and cordial manner, others like being around her. Marion Zimmer Bradley loves to be involved with associations or societies in the pursuit of common interests.
