drive and ambition
Once Peter Ustinov sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Ustinov pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Peter 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 Peter Ustinov to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Peter Ustinov has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Ustinov 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. Peter Ustinov 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. Peter'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. Peter Ustinov also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
He is a team player and collaborates well with others who share his goals, ideals and intentions. Peter Ustinov can coordinate group efforts and inspire people to work toward a common goal.
Team sports are also a lot of fun for Peter, and he could be a leader, coach or director of any group endeavor.
Peter Ustinov has the gift of endurance and perseverance, as well as the willingness to work hard to achieve his objectives. Once he decides he wants something or makes a commitment, Peter Ustinov will do it "even if it takes forever". Self-discipline comes naturally to Peter and he instinctively realizes that any creative achievement is "10% inspiration, 90% perspiration". Ustinov chooses practical, realistic goals and pursues them step-by-step in a well-planned, orderly fashion. Peter Ustinov likes to concentrate on one thing at a time and he does a thorough job. He enjoys working in solitude, and often feels he does his best work when he is alone.
He is rebellious and confident that he can do his own thing and still be accepted by the world around him. Because he is a freedom-lover, Peter Ustinov may find it difficult to relate to others and most of his relationships are likely to be very challenging.
Peter Ustinov has a strong need to gain power and he tends to dominate or manipulate other people. But in his push for success, power struggles could also thwart Ustinov's efforts and he could become the victim of someone else having control over him.
Peter Ustinov may have to overcome some significant handicaps from his childhood or background in order to attain his ambitions in life. Peter may appear to lack ambition, but he may simply be keeping his cards close to his chest. A sense of inadequacy stemming from early disappointments may make Peter Ustinov an underachiever. However, he can accomplish a great deal if he understands the influence of the past, and learns to seek the support and help he requires.
