He may seem weak-willed or ineffectual, for he does not have a powerful ego drive for personal achievement and material advantage, or for winning at the expense of someone else. Being first, being best or being on top does not mean much to Michio Kushi, and he can be quite happy in a supporting role, working for the benefit of others or for a cause that he believes in.

Asserting himself and being direct and forceful about what he wants is often very difficult for Michio. Though he may have a great deal of energy and drive, Michio Kushi lacks confidence or simply the desire to put himself and his interests first. On the positive side, Kushi can be very unselfish, working more for the benefit of others than for himself.
However, Michio Kushi denies his own desires and needs too much, and he is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage his finest efforts.

The road to success, professional advancement and fulfillment of his long-range goals is likely to be easier and smoother for Michio Kushi than for many.

Achieving his professional objectives or advancing in his career often requires considerable sacrifice on Michio's part.

Pure, unrestrained self-expression may well be more important to him than "going places" in a worldly sense. This is not to say Michio Kushi will not progress or succeed, only that he will do it on his own terms.
Often Michio Kushi feels like he is being pulled in two directions - what he needs to do to fulfill his long-range ambitions, and what he actually feels like doing. This may make it difficult for Michio to be constant and consistent in pursuing goals, career aims, etc.
