drive and ambition
Mohandas Gandhi is extremely strong-willed and he pursues his goals and desires with passionate dedication and determination. He is capable of total concentration and tremendous discipline, and he is very difficult to influence or sway once his mind is made up. When Mohandas Gandhi wants something, Gandhi can be very one-sided and almost obsessed with it. He is very instinctive and does not always consciously know why he feels as strongly and deeply as he does.
He also tends to be secretive and unwilling to reveal his aims and intentions, and the intensity of his will and desire may not be apparent to others at first. However, Gandhi is very forceful in a quiet and subtle way. Mohandas Gandhi often manipulates or forces his will upon other people, without being overtly aggressive. He is not interested in confrontation but he is a formidable foe if he meets opposition or aggression from another. Mohandas is courageous and has a rather primitive, raw side as well.
He is a doer and an achiever. Energetic, courageous, and often impatient, Mohandas Gandhi will forge ahead with his plans regardless of others' reservations. In fact, Gandhi often feels other people get in his way and he prefers working on his own. Mohandas is active, assertive, and rather competitive as well.
Mohandas has an adventurous, entrepreneurial spirit and the instincts for big success. Competition and rivalry spurs Mohandas Gandhi on to do his best, and to push past his limits. He enjoys taking initiative, and has positive expectations which generate positive results. At times, Mohandas Gandhi is overconfident, cocky, and vainglorious, though. Sports and business are both suitable arenas for Gandhi.
He is dynamic, decisive, and somewhat impulsive. Mohandas Gandhi responds quickly and spontaneously to challenges, and enjoys vigorous physical activities that require fast reflexes and a good sense of rhythm and timing. Mohandas has an abundance of energy and vitality, and a restless desire to see progress and change - he hates stagnation. He is individualistic and makes a good leader, spearheading new projects and inspiring others to act.
His competitive drive and big ambitions (commented upon earlier) are fueled upon by either strong spiritual idealism, or a rather inflated, grandiose idea of what Mohandas Gandhi can actually accomplish. His energy level is apt to fluctuate from being very strong, as noted earlier, to rather low, as mentioned in the following paragraphs.
While Mohandas Gandhi is often charged with energy and inspired about what he wants to do (as mentioned earlier), there is a dreamy, visionary, or passive side to him as well. His energy level may fluctuate from being superabundant to rather lax.
Mohandas Gandhi 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 Mohandas Gandhi to work on building up his physical energy. Mohandas needs to get regular exercise, eat healthfully, get plenty of rest (something he may require more of than average), and especially avoid activities and people that dissipate and waste his time.
He is highly ambitious and will drive himself (and others) mercilessly when he wants to achieve something. Competition can become a deadly serious and rather ugly thing with Mohandas Gandhi, as if his very life depended upon winning or conquering. His relationships with men may be especially fraught with conflicts and power struggle. Mohandas Gandhi is capable of tremendous effort, but he must beware of burning himself out.
Mohandas Gandhi has a great talent for organizing projects and the ability to inspire others with his enthusiasm. Having the urge to achieve, Mohandas Gandhi is capable of tremendous effort and uses all the energy at his disposal to gain success with his objectives.
Somewhat self-willed and obstinate, Gandhi tends to withdraw from everything that he deem unnecessary. He may prefer to be alone and is inclined to cut himself off from other people frequently, resulting in loneliness and depression.
His aspirations in life are apt to be quite unusual, extraordinary, or ahead of their time. Mohandas Gandhi is a nonconformist, insistent on doing things his own way, and he will follow a zigzag course to the fulfillment of his ambitions.
Rebelling against authority seems to be one aspect of his life's plan. Mohandas Gandhi simply cannot force himself into a pre-cast mold of any kind.
His inner life tends to be full of imagination and Mohandas Gandhi is likely to have far-reaching ideas and plans. Peace-loving and generous, he is very sharing in his relationships. But Mohandas Gandhi could become the victim of unintentional slights.
