Although Reba McEntire appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), she is also a "warrior". McEntire sometimes feels torn between these two facets of her character: the sensitive, tenderhearted, home-loving side, and the assertive, competitive, risk-taking side. People who first meet Reba McEntire often think that she is a "softy", but later find out that she is strong willed and pursues her goals aggressively.
She is a person who thrives on challenge, and she often feels that she must battle her way through life, relying on no one and nothing but her own strength, intelligence and courage. Reba McEntire believes in being totally honest, true to herself and her own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are McEntire's gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Reba McEntire craves the freedom to do things in her own way, and she works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not her style. Reba likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Reba McEntire loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then she is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for her. She is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though she may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Reba McEntire also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for McEntire, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Reba McEntire believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Reba McEntire hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting her own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for her.
She is basically aggressive in her attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. She is often so fired up about her own projects or goals that she inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving McEntire's relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Reba McEntire to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Reba McEntire would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Reba McEntire to do so.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to McEntire. Reba McEntire has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy her; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Reba McEntire may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
McEntire's subconscious needs and feelings blend well with her conscious intentions and desires, therefore Reba McEntire is able to proceed in her life's pursuits relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency. Reba's male-female relationships will reflect this state of internal harmony also.
McEntire has a strong will and great determination and is willing to work hard to reach her goals. Reba McEntire often takes on more than her share and labors untiringly, sparing herself no pain in her work. Reba should guard against over-exerting herself physically.
Reba McEntire loves to entertain and likes to cultivate social contacts. She enjoys forming close personal relationships with others and most of them should be harmonious. Reba prefers teamwork rather than separate efforts to realize her goals.
