drive and ambition
Nikola Tesla seesaws between being too pushy, confrontational and insistent on doing things his way, and being too eager to please, without a clear, definite goal of his own. Nikola Tesla strives for a balance between acting independently and assertively - and working cooperatively and interdependently with others. He may feel frustrated at times that he cannot simply do what HE wants and that he must always accommodate the needs and desires of others. Or he may feel hesitant to act in a positive, assertive manner if he does not have the support and approval of other people. Either way, he is not a loner. Nikola Tesla achieves his goals by collaborating and joining forces with others, by being a team player. He is very concerned with the concept of fairness and becomes quite indignant and vocal if he senses someone is being taken advantage of. Nikola Tesla avoids extremism and favors a balanced, moderate approach to living. He is unlikely to push himself too hard or to become fanatically driven to reach his goals.
Nikola Tesla expects to work hard for anything he accomplishes and he has no patience for people who do not pull their own weight. Work is a passion for Nikola at times, and he pushes himself too hard. Tesla can also be too demanding of the people he works with.
If his energy is not invested in a job or career, Nikola Tesla can become fanatic about his health, and may exercise or "work out" vigorously and perhaps excessively.
Nikola Tesla 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 Nikola Tesla to work on building up his physical energy. Nikola 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 capable of overcoming tremendous odds, and of enormous self-discipline and focus. When Nikola Tesla sets his sights on achieving something or is presented with a thorny challenge, it is his capacity for eliminating the superfluous, getting along with very little, and riding through tough times that enables Nikola Tesla to triumph eventually.
His ambitions and long-range goals in life are apt to be personal, subjective, and related to inner development or inner satisfaction. Others' recognition or accomplishing something great in material or public terms is quite secondary to Nikola.
A great deal of Tesla's energy, attention, and fulfillment may be related to home, family, or fulfilling his heritage in some manner.
His desire for a beautiful home, a comfortable, pleasing lifestyle, and time to relax and enjoy himself may well be the motivation for going out into the world and trying to achieve outward success. Nikola Tesla may seesaw at times between his professional drives and desire for status, and the appeal of a rich personal life and home comforts.
He may have to overcome something in his background or personal past in order to achieve his long-range goals and ambitions. Sometimes Nikola Tesla is apt to feel pulled in two different directions - what others expect of him or what he needs to do to progress, versus what his old conditioning or his emotional predisposition would have him do. Overcoming the pull of the past is the key.
Tesla is intensely competitive, and may engage in furious battles of will, numerous conflicts, and possible public controversy, on his way to gaining his objectives. Nikola Tesla could be drawn to activities that are dangerous, in the line of fire, so to speak. He puts himself on the line. Anger or recklessness could be his downfall.
Nikola has two different career paths which appeal to him, and which may at some point be blended. The first has to do with the arts, entertainment, film, or music industry. The other is an involvement in the ministry, social betterment, charity or volunteer work. Nikola Tesla has a high degree of sensitivity and this compassion is apt to be a key factor in his professional decisions and overall goals in life.
Nikola Tesla has a beautiful soul, is aesthetically inclined and has a love of fine arts. He may want to be involved in a career where art, acting, or beauty is paramount. His parents are supportive and Nikola is likely to have a harmonious home and business life.
He is strongly attached to his home and family, and harmony in his surroundings and relationships is important to him. Having a good sense of team work, Nikola Tesla has a strong desire to feel complete oneness with people around him.
