drive and ambition
Once Millie Perkins sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Perkins pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Millie labors patiently and steadfastly until she achieves what she wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. She is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and she often shoulders more of the workload than her co-workers, usually without complaint. She often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. She prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to her success because once she gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Millie Perkins to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Millie Perkins has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before Perkins gets going; but once she gets a momentum going, her energy level is strong and steady.
She is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Millie Perkins needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for her 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 she does. Millie's stamina and persistence are her greatest assets, but they can also work against her; she can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Millie Perkins also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself as a result.
Asserting herself and being direct and forceful about what she wants is often very difficult for Millie. Though she may have a great deal of energy and drive, Millie Perkins lacks confidence or simply the desire to put herself and her interests first. On the positive side, Perkins can be very unselfish, working more for the benefit of others than for herself.
However, Millie Perkins denies her own desires and needs too much, and she is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage her finest efforts.
When Millie Perkins wants something, she can be amazingly persistent and unrelenting - even a bit obsessed - although quiet about it. In fact Millie may even hide her underlying intentions from friends. Whenever she does anything, she does so wholeheartedly and thoroughly - and if Millie Perkins does not want to do something that others wish her to do, she will somehow find a way out of it. Perkins is strong, though subtle.
Millie Perkins has a tendency to act without having a clear idea of what she wants to do with her life, leading to the wrong conclusions. Millie could also be attracted to the mystical and spiritual and may become interested in studying metaphysical subjects.
Millie Perkins really wants to leave her mark on the world in some way, to achieve stature and recognition for her contributions, and she is not willing to take a back seat - at least not for very long. In order to achieve her aims, though, Millie Perkins will have to compromise and "give" more than she may be willing to. Thus, conflicts with others, particularly important men in her life, may arise. To accomplish her goals, Millie may have to set aside some of her self-centeredness, and learn from these men! However, Millie Perkins may also be required at some point to make a break in order to hold her own and fulfill her own destiny.
Millie Perkins is blessed with fluidity of speech and thought, and she uses her intellectual gifts or communicative skills to achieve her ambitions in life. Convincing, selling, persuading, reasoning, bringing ideas into public awareness are also part of Perkins' professional life.
Her professional goals and long-range ambitions may be vague and difficult for Millie Perkins to define for quite a long time. This is partly due to the fact that they are not very conventional, concrete, or worldly. Millie 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 her role in life. On the other hand, Millie Perkins may simply be confused and lack professional ambition.
