Paloma Picasso understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and she is capable of much self-discipline and patience once she sets her sights on a goal.
But Paloma Picasso is very judgmental and hard on herself if she fails to attain success, and she can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize her efforts.
Her faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by much caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well.

Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge her own path through life is a key factor in her self-development.
