drive and ambition
Once Mick Mars sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Mars pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Mick 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 Mick Mars to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Mick Mars has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Mars 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. Mick Mars 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. Mick'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. Mick Mars also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
He is likely to be known for his drive, energy, ambition and competitive spirit. He is likely to espouse a career based on his ability to take initiative, be a leader, or excel in physical strength and prowess. Mick Mars most definitely wants to be a winner and will work hard to achieve it.
Mick Mars has a streak of the pacifist or defeatist in him. Learning to assert himself in a strong, clear, forthright manner and developing stamina in the face of obstacles are necessary to counter such tendencies. To accomplish all he is capable of, it would also be very beneficial for Mick Mars to work on building up his physical energy. Mick needs to get regular exercise, eat healthfully, get plenty of rest (something he may require more than an average amount of), and especially avoid activities and people who dissipate and waste his time.
Mick Mars has a powerful will and when he wants something, he pursues it passionately and relentlessly until he achieves it. He may be so driven by his desire that he loses all objectivity. Mick Mars often becomes compulsive, even obsessed, with doing or achieving something, no matter what the costs or how hard he must work for it. His forcefulness may be veiled or subtle, for often Mars does not reveal his real aims and intentions to others until they cross him. Intense power struggles and relationships with a strong dominance/submissiveness theme are likely to erupt. Mick Mars has enormous energy reserves, and is capable of extraordinary effort and great achievement if he uses his energies for constructive purposes.
Mick Mars is likely to receive much publicity and popularity through his professional pursuits, for he has a way of winning the hearts and trust of many people. Mick has an instinct for what the masses will respond to emotionally, and this sense of what other people want enables him to succeed in sales, promotion, and so on. His career could also involve protecting and caring for people, and nurturing them in some capacity.
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 Mick Mars goes about achieving his goals and ambitions. "Work smarter, not harder" is Mars' motto.
