Paul R. Ehrlich
drive and ambition
Once Paul Ehrlich sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Ehrlich pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Paul labors patiently and steadfastly until he achieves what he wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. He is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and he often shoulders more of the workload than his co-workers, usually without complaint. He often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. He prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to his success because once he gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Paul Ehrlich to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Paul Ehrlich has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Ehrlich gets going; but once he gets a momentum going, his energy level is strong and steady.
He is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Paul Ehrlich needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for his efforts, and cannot be content with only intangible rewards (such as having a good time, learning, or spiritual enrichment). Material well-being and security is also a large factor in determining what he does. Paul's stamina and persistence are his greatest assets, but they can also work against him; he can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Paul Ehrlich also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
It is not easy for Paul Ehrlich to show the world at large his angry or competitive side, but his family sees this side of his more often. Temper tantrums, tumultuous family relationships, or a great deal of competition between Ehrlich and one or more of his relations is likely. Paul Ehrlich likes to be the one in charge in his home and he puts a lot of energy into making it the way he wants it.
He is enterprising, ambitious and has a strong desire to succeed in a big way. Forever on the lookout for new opportunities and promising new ventures, Paul Ehrlich is willing to take risks if he senses a winner. No matter how much Paul accomplishes, he never seems to be completely satisfied. Paul Ehrlich always feels that he can do more, and sets his sights on another goal. Paul Ehrlich feels frustrated in limited circumstances, and he will abandon secure and reasonably successful situations if they do not offer challenges and future growth potential. Ehrlich likes to keep stretching his limits, to see how far he can go. Sometimes Ehrlich overextends himself or promises more than he can actually achieve, due to an overly optimistic or confident assessment of his own capacities. Paul Ehrlich relishes healthy competition and feels that it spurs him on to even greater achievements.
Ehrlich knows how to discipline himself and faces difficulties with great courage. It may take time, energy and dedication for Paul Ehrlich to achieve his goals; and when he meets defeat, Paul rises above it and continues on his way.
