drive and ambition
Mary McGrory is extremely strong-willed and she pursues her goals and desires with passionate dedication and determination. She is capable of total concentration and tremendous discipline, and she is very difficult to influence or sway once her mind is made up. When Mary McGrory wants something, McGrory can be very one-sided and almost obsessed with it. She is very instinctive and does not always consciously know why she feels as strongly and deeply as she does.
She also tends to be secretive and unwilling to reveal her aims and intentions, and the intensity of her will and desire may not initially be apparent to others. However, McGrory is very forceful in a quiet and subtle way. Mary McGrory often manipulates or forces her will upon other people, without being overtly aggressive. She is not interested in confrontation but she is a formidable foe if she encounters opposition or aggression. Mary is courageous and has a rather primitive, raw side as well.
Asserting herself and being direct and forceful about what she wants is very often difficult for Mary. Though she may have a great deal of energy and drive, Mary McGrory lacks confidence or simply the desire to put herself and her interests first. Positively, McGrory can be very unselfish, working more on behalf of others rather than for herself.
However, Mary McGrory denies her own desires and needs too much, and she is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage her finest efforts.
She abounds with self-confidence and vitality and Mary McGrory believes she can do just about anything she wants to. Mary has an enterprising spirit, a good sense of timing and the ability to sense what will succeed and what will not. McGrory usually makes fortunate work or business decisions. She enjoys healthy competition and has a rather playful, good-humored attitude toward it. Mary McGrory mostly competes with herself to see how far she can go or how much she can accomplish. Mary likes to keep stretching her limits.
Her competitive drive and lofty ambitions (commented upon earlier) feed on either intense spiritual idealism or a rather inflated, grandiose idea of what Mary McGrory can actually accomplish. Her energy level is apt to fluctuate from being very high, as noted earlier, to rather low, as mentioned in the following paragraphs.
Ordinary life often seems drab and uninteresting to Mary and she must have something that stirs her imagination - a vision or ideal or dream to motivate her. Mary McGrory has a strong urge to act out her fantasies or to live her dream, and Mary McGrory will act where others merely talk or dream. Artistic creation, drama or other areas in which McGrory can express herself imaginatively are excellent for her.
Work that only serves her own narrow personal interests does not satisfy Mary McGrory. She may lack the competitive edge, the fighting spirit, the "me first" attitude that is often required for material advancement and success. She also tends to either overestimate or underestimate her own power and abilities.
Mary McGrory has a strong sense of mission and instinctively knows that in order to achieve anything great, one must eliminate superfluous activities and give oneself wholly to the task at hand. Her zeal, enthusiasm and clarity of purpose enable Mary McGrory to succeed and to achieve whatever she sets her mind to. Mary McGrory has a strong will, but is usually quiet and understated by nature.
An intense team-worker, Mary McGrory is likely to realize plans that she makes in common with others. She may prefer to work with partners rather than alone and could form relationships with others for the purpose of working together.
Freedom is very important to Mary McGrory and she will work hard to get it. Quick to act, she wants to realize her goals immediately. Mary McGrory has a strong desire to make her fortune in life and tends to take chances with speculative ventures or gambling.
Her role in life is apt to be one of great responsibility and Mary McGrory takes her tasks very seriously. Certain heaviness weighs on her because of this. She may have been unusually ambitious or mature at a tender age. Mary McGrory advances and attains her aspirations through dedication and perseverance, rather than fortune.
Mary McGrory has a beautiful soul, is aesthetically inclined and has a love of fine arts. She may want to be involved in a career where art, acting, or beauty is paramount. Her parents are supportive and Mary is likely to have a harmonious home and business life.
