drive and ambition
She is a perfectionist and has high standards for her own work. Mother Teresa often feels that if she wants something done right she must do it herself, for others do not do as thorough a job as she does. Doing a task well is very important to her, and she may labor over minute details that others would not bother with. Mother Teresa strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and she becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Mother Teresa can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that she will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that her efforts will simply not be good enough. She is usually modest and realistic in assessing what she can accomplish and, if anything, Mother Teresa underestimates herself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Agnes Bojaxhiu does apply herself diligently in a given area, she gradually gains self-confidence as she masters skills and develops expertise.
Mother Teresa conserves her energy and paces herself so that she does not waste or diffuse her efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit her opportunities. In short, Agnes Bojaxhiu may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
Mother Teresa meets numerous challenges and possibly defeats in pursuit of her goals and desires, and her setbacks often occur because Mother Teresa has been too rash or intent on working her own will regardless of the impact on others. Mother Teresa is intense and passionate, and simply does not know when to stop sometimes! Recklessness with others can be a problem for Agnes Bojaxhiu.
Her desires are very strong and at times Mother Teresa could be quite forceful and impulsive in her sexual expression. Mother Teresa wants to be with those who are closest and most important to her and she has a great need to express her affection in her relationships.

Her drives and ambitions in life may seem crazy or eccentric to the more conservative people Mother Teresa knows. There may well be no security or safety net (no retirement pension, no insurance benefits) in the work Mother Teresa does. She is suited for freelancing, or professions that involve lots of change, innovation, variety, irregular schedules, and the like. Mother Teresa should expect the unexpected and numerous ups and downs in the course of her life. She may change course often, and try many different things.
Indecision and confusion over her ambitions or direction in life may hold Mother Teresa back from achieving anything solid, especially in her early life. She is very much a dreamer and her interests and inclinations may not translate very readily into concrete goals. Personal glory or accomplishment can never be Agnes Bojaxhiu's sole motivation or drive in life. Ministering to others in some way may be her calling, however. Or Mother Teresa could use her dreamy, imaginative energies in creative ways - the arts, music or entertainment field.
Often Mother Teresa feels like she is being pulled in two directions - what she needs to do to fulfill her long-range ambitions, and what she actually feels like doing. This may make it difficult for Mother Teresa to be constant and consistent in pursuing goals, career aims, etc.
Relationships with women, trying to satisfy family needs, or other emotional attachments sometimes also conflict. Often Mother Teresa has to decide on one or another at a given time, rather than try to have both.
