drive and ambition
Simon is aspiring, enterprising and forever following a bright and distant star, planning some new venture or investigating new potential. He is definitely "upwardly mobile" in either a material or spiritual sense. Norton Simon aims high and is not content with a mere quiet, secure existence. Norton likes to stretch his limits, see how far he can go and take risks. He is a positive thinker, expects success for himself, and is philosophical about failures. Simon is flexible and he bounces back from disappointments rather quickly, usually with another hopeful new idea he wants to try. His enthusiasm and confidence are contagious and enable Norton Simon to enlist the aid and support he needs for his projects. However, Norton Simon sometimes promises more than he can actually achieve, because he is overly optimistic or pays insufficient attention to the practicalities involved.
He also tends to get distracted and to have too many things going on at once. Although it is very difficult for him, there are times when Norton Simon simply must cultivate commitment, perseverance and persistence in order to make his dreams and goals reality. Too often Norton Simon falls short of what he could attain because he is unwilling to persist through the difficult or less exciting times.
Norton Simon also enjoys competition and usually does not take it too seriously. Sports and entrepreneurial endeavors are good ways to channel Norton's energy.
Norton Simon 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 Norton at times, and he pushes himself too hard. Simon can also be too demanding of the people he works with.
If his energy is not invested in a job or career, Norton Simon can become fanatical about his health, and may exercise or "work out" vigorously and perhaps excessively.
While Norton Simon enjoys challenging himself to extend his abilities or try new activities, he is apt to bite off more than he can chew. Failures or accidents due to his overestimating his prowess or capacities and being overly eager and poorly prepared may result. Fortunately these disappointments or blunders do not dampen Norton's spirits or his ambitions permanently; he has a lot of resilience and optimism. Most likely Norton Simon will need to develop his physical coordination and sense of timing in order to practice some of the activities he dreams of.
He is very sensitive to the inner qualities of sincerity, honesty, integrity and good will. Norton Simon notices these qualities (or the lack thereof) more quickly than others and brings them up frequently. He is philosophical about life and very perceptive, but may have an exaggerated sense of his own wisdom and depth of understanding of religious, metaphysical, artistic, or intuitive subjects.
Norton Simon's capacity to tolerate tension and ambivalence, compromise, and endure discomfort helps him to confront the challenges and difficulties in life. Remaining steadfast in the midst of crisis or sudden change, as well as knowing when to wait and when to make necessary changes are manifestations of these skills. Norton's timing is usually good.
Positions of honor, affluence, influence and stature in his community can be his. Norton Simon feels that his destiny involves leadership or distinguishing himself in some way. Norton possesses an innate sense of greatness or importance, and a strong drive to achieve recognition for his talent. Norton Simon should avoid excessive egotism and arrogant pride, for these could limit his opportunities.
He may have to overcome something in his background or personal past in order to achieve his long-range goals and ambitions. Sometimes Norton Simon may feel pulled in two different directions - what others expect of him or what he needs to do in order to progress versus what his old conditioning or his emotional predisposition would have him do. Overcoming the pull of the past is the key.
His professional goals and long-range ambitions may be vague and difficult for Norton Simon to define for quite a long time. This is partly due to the fact that they are not very conventional, concrete, or worldly. Norton 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 his role in life. On the other hand, Norton Simon may simply be confused and lack professional ambition.
