drive and ambition
Once Martin Buber sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Buber pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Martin 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 Martin Buber to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Martin Buber has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Buber 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. Martin Buber 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. Martin'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. Martin Buber also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
Martin Buber often buys things on impulse and he can be reckless with his material resources and money. Martin has certain possessions that he is extremely attached to and possessive of.
Martin Buber has a very active and fertile imagination and Buber's ambitions are never strictly mundane, practical and concrete. Martin Buber has a strong desire to act out his fantasies, dreams, visions and ideals. Artistic creation, drama, or other areas in which Buber can express himself imaginatively are ideally suited to him. Ordinary life seems drab and uninteresting to Buber, and he needs to have some lofty dream or something grander than his own narrow personal interests to live for. Sometimes Buber may be confused about exactly how and where to direct his energy and he often drifts along rather than making clear decisions about what he wants. Martin Buber has a passive side and at times lacks the will power, physical energy, strength and fighting spirit to achieve his aims.
Martin has the patience and the stamina to realize his visions and bring them down to earth, a fine balance between hard work and realism, and a positive, hopeful spirit. Martin Buber grows by adhering to systems and plans, and taking one step at a time. Overnight success or instant enlightenment is not what Buber aims for. His patient, well-balanced approach gives Martin Buber credibility with many different types of people, and he is likely to acquire an excellent reputation for being able to do big things without overreaching or becoming pretentious.
Martin Buber tends to want to take the easy road to success, and unless other factors in his chart suggest a capacity for effort or a lot of energy, laziness could interfere with achieving whatever ambitions Buber has. He tends to gain his objectives through his personal charm and appeal. Martin Buber also possesses a fine aesthetic sense which could be a prominent factor in his career.
Buber can be rather antagonistic toward those in authority. Even without realizing it, he may convey this attitude and be threatening to those in power. Thus, however well meaning Martin Buber is, he may find that his initiatives or projects are met with little favor. Working independently might be Martin's best option.
His professional goals and long-range ambitions may be vague and difficult for Martin Buber to define for quite a long time. This is partly due to the fact that they are not very conventional, concrete, or worldly. Martin is apt to have more of a spiritual vocation or calling. Healing, counseling, the ministry, music, art - or some combination thereof - may well be part of his role in life. On the other hand, Martin Buber may simply be confused and lack professional ambition.
He enjoys life, is original and likes to be admired. Martin Buber loves to go out and is always looking for new social contacts and relationships. It does not take Buber long to like someone and he is likely to have many adventurous love affairs.
