approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Novak's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Novak Djokovic comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Novak Djokovic - his real motivation, which describes the kind of person he is at heart and where his true priorities lie. Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Novak Djokovic" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Novak a little better. This page describes the disguise Djokovic wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Novak Djokovic likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Djokovic must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision. Whatever Novak does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Novak Djokovic also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats him in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Djokovic will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Novak dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Djokovic admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Novak Djokovic befriends someone, Djokovic is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. He is very giving and generous, but his gifts are never anonymous - Novak expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Novak Djokovic often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as himself, for he does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If he is not in the leading role, he aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Novak Djokovic has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Novak always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Novak Djokovic also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although he does not like others to realize just how important it is to him.
His outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. His own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Novak more than anything else. Novak Djokovic feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Novak Djokovic has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant impact on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Novak Djokovic often does not get the full recognition he yearns for.
Novak Djokovic comes across as liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual or off the beaten track arouses his interest. Djokovic infuses his environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Novak Djokovic does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
He is assertive and bold. Novak Djokovic is willing to be the first person to speak up and make his position known, and to strike out on his own if necessary. Novak generally gets along better with men than with women because his approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. He can be a bit too forceful. However, Novak Djokovic's boldness is his calling card, and most people feel that he can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
In significant ways, Djokovic's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way he presents himself. As a result of this inconsistency, Novak Djokovic may be uncomfortable showing his instinctive responses and true feelings. He may put them aside and may even be ashamed of them.
When Novak Djokovic is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know him well may be quite surprised at his reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept himself, so that he does not act as if his emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
He is charming and friendly to everyone, but may prefer more superficial and frequently changing relationships with people rather than steady and lasting friendships. Some of his meetings with others could come about suddenly.
Novak Djokovic has a tendency to live in a world of his own, a world that is likely to be far from reality. Novak wants to make a big impression, and with his dazzling personality he knows how to put on a brilliant show.
