drive and ambition
Once Michael Jackson sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Jackson pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Michael 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 Michael Jackson to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Michael Jackson has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Jackson 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. Michael Jackson 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. Michael'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. Michael Jackson also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
Jackson is attracted to feisty, dynamic, strong-willed people, and he seems to need a lot of fireworks in his personal relationships. Michael Jackson can be very combative, or get involved with people who are. Ideally Michael will join with people who are energetic and ambitious, but not too domineering or aggressive.
Jackson frequently meets a tremendous amount of resistance whenever he wants to assert himself in a decisive way, or do something just for himself. This resistance comes from within (in the form of self-doubt, fear, or a heavy sense of responsibility to others), as well as from practical and circumstantial limitations. Especially when initiating a project or acting independently, Michael Jackson may tell himself that he is not really prepared, or that he is not good enough (yet), and he puts a lot of pressure on himself. Despite the obstacles, setbacks, or lack of support he encounters, Michael Jackson can accomplish a lot in a patient, steady fashion. However, he is apt to aim too low, and not realize how much he is truly capable of.
Michael Jackson should try to recognize that he does not have to justify his existence or prove his worth by his accomplishments.
He is likely to feel depressed frequently and has a strong desire to overcome it, but may not be able to count on much support from others. Michael Jackson tends to separate himself from others and he feels like being expelled from society.
Language, words, communication, networking, clarity of speech or writing, being a messenger or go-between - these are key features in his career, as well as how Michael Jackson goes about achieving his goals and ambitions. "Work smarter, not harder" is Jackson's motto.
Jackson gains his objectives and ambitions in life through his personal charm, attractiveness, ability to please others visually and/or emotionally. A career in the arts or entertainment world is possible for Michael Jackson. Anything involving sales or promotion, particularly of beautiful or luxurious items, is an area he can succeed in. Vanity or indiscretions in relationships could lead Michael Jackson to his downfall.
Jackson is intensely competitive, and may engage in furious battles of will, numerous conflicts, and possible public controversy, on his way to gaining his objectives. Michael Jackson could be drawn to activities that are dangerous, in the line of fire, so to speak. He puts himself on the line. Anger or recklessness could be his downfall.
Discipline, concentration, a realistic sense of what is attainable, and steady dedication to achieving his ambitions are the keys to Michael's progress. Michael Jackson is apt to move slowly but constantly in the direction of his goals, and solid achievement is the outcome of this conservative approach.
He is quite restless and indefatigable in the pursuit of his objectives. Only satisfied with maximum results, Michael Jackson fights to the last moment. Some of his endeavors could be a bit daring though, and his aims a bit high.
