Martin Luther King
drive and ambition
He is a "busy bee" - energetic, restless, and forever on the go. His active mind is always buzzing with ideas and Martin finds it difficult sometimes to relax, slow down, or take time to reflect and replenish himself. Martin Luther King tends to live on nervous energy. He can accomplish much in short bursts but projects that require long-term commitment, stamina, and steady, persistent effort are not easy for King. Martin Luther King often scatters his energies into so many directions and activities at once that he cannot finish or follow through on some of them. He needs variety, change, and mental challenges.
Martin Luther King has a sharp and eager mind, and he enjoys games and competitions that have a mental component. Martin likes to match wits with someone else.
King often achieves his desires by his verbal skill, his ability to speak clearly, vigorously, and convincingly for what he wants. His drive and energy is more mental than physical. Martin Luther King uses his wit, intelligence, communication skills, social sophistication, and awareness to achieve his goals.
Martin Luther King 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 Luther King struggles with feelings of discouragement, self-doubt, and the sense that life is an uphill battle all the time. He is also prone to squelch himself, especially any aggressive or angry feelings. This can lead to chronic resentment and bitterness which actually undermines his goal far more than openly expressing his anger would.
Positively, Martin Luther King is capable of immense patience, endurance, and quiet steady efforts to attain his goals and desires. Martin Luther King seems to have to work very hard, and without much outside help. But if he can avoid a negative attitude about this, and "keep on keeping on", King will achieve something substantial. He is much more effective working for someone else also.
He is inclined to be a tyrant and wants other people to submit to his wishes. In Martin's drive to gain power, he could be ruthless and brutal at times. On the other hand, Martin Luther King may have to struggle to resist being placed in someone else's hand and power.
Positions of honor, affluence, influence, and stature in his community can be his. Martin Luther King feels he has a destiny which involves leadership or distinguishing himself in some line of endeavor. Martin possesses an innate sense of greatness or importance, and a strong drive to achieve recognition for his talent. Martin Luther King should avoid excessive egotism and arrogant pride, for these could limit his opportunities.
Martin has grand aspirations and may be inordinately ambitious at times. That is, he is apt to be discontent with small successes and to feel like a failure unless he achieves extraordinary things. Martin Luther King should avoid get-rich-quick schemes which promise tremendous returns for little energy expenditure. Even if they do seem to succeed, King's ideals and values could be compromised.
His professional goals and long-range ambitions may be vague and difficult for Martin Luther King 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 Luther King may simply be confused and seemingly not ambitious at all in the professional realm.
