drive and ambition
Once Reba McEntire sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. McEntire pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Reba labors patiently and steadfastly until she achieves what she wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. She is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and she often shoulders more of the workload than her co-workers, usually without complaint. She often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. She prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to her success because once she gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Reba McEntire to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Reba McEntire has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before McEntire gets going; but once she gets a momentum going, her energy level is strong and steady.
She is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Reba McEntire needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for her 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 she does. Reba's stamina and persistence are her greatest assets, but they can also work against her; she can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Reba McEntire also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself as a result.
She is a team player and works well in collaboration with others who share her goals, ideals, and intentions. Reba McEntire can coordinate group efforts and inspire people to work toward a shared goal.
Team sports are also a lot of fun for Reba, and she could be a leader, coach, or director of any group endeavor.
Reba McEntire has a rather cocky, confident, we-can-do-it attitude which people in her environment pick up on quite readily. Inspiring, motivating, and encouraging others to go out and do their very best is one of Reba's innate gifts. Reba McEntire has faith in the power of action and boldness, and enjoys imitating new programs and projects.
Although enterprising and proactive, Reba McEntire is also capable of ample much self-discipline, patience and effort. She may swing from confidence and trust in the future to pessimism and doubt, when it comes to achieving her aims in life.
Reba McEntire struggles with feelings of discouragement, self-doubt, and the sense that life is a constant uphill battle. She is also prone to suppressing her feelings - especially aggressive or angry ones. This could lead to chronic resentment and bitterness, which actually undermines McEntire's goal far more than openly expressing her anger would.
On the positive side, Reba McEntire is capable of immense patience, endurance and tireless effort in order to attain her goals and desires. Reba McEntire seems to have to work very hard, and without much outside help. However, if she can avoid a negative attitude and keep "plugging along", McEntire will achieve something substantial. Moreover, she is much more effective when working for someone else.
Although she is patient and steady when pursuing an objective, when Reba McEntire finally loses patience she loses it completely! In addition to having great tenacity and perseverance, Reba has a daring and rebellious side as well:
She enjoys risky, exciting activities and cannot tolerate too much routine, tedium, or inactivity. Unless other factors in her chart suggest staying power and the ability to follow through, Reba McEntire may be the person who initiates a new venture but cannot happily participate in the ongoing, sustained effort it requires. "Independent" is McEntire's middle name! Reba McEntire needs to be a totally free agent, to run her own show. Reba likes to introduce new concepts to people, and then move on.
Reba McEntire has a powerful will and when she wants something, she pursues it passionately and relentlessly until she achieves it. She may be so driven by her desire that she loses all objectivity. Reba McEntire often becomes compulsive, even obsessed, with doing or achieving something, no matter what the costs or how hard she must work for it. Her forcefulness may be veiled or subtle, for often McEntire does not reveal her real aims and intentions to others until they cross her. Intense power struggles and relationships with a strong dominance/submissiveness theme are likely to erupt. Reba McEntire has enormous energy reserves, and is capable of extraordinary effort and great achievement if she uses her energies for constructive purposes.

Reba McEntire has a talent for putting fresh ideas and inspiration into practice. She is ready and willing to apply new ideas and methods, and she has a knack for gaining acceptance for a new idea and implementing it.
Her professional goals and long-range ambitions may be vague and difficult for Reba McEntire to define for quite a long time. This is partly due to the fact that they are not very conventional, concrete, or worldly. Reba 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 her role in life. On the other hand, Reba McEntire may simply be confused and seemingly not ambitious at all in the professional realm.
