Robert De Niro
drive and ambition
Once Robert De Niro sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment to it are extraordinary. De Niro pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Robert 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. The nitty-gritty work often falls to him. 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, is easy for Robert De Niro to follow it through to its completion. Getting started is more difficult. Robert De Niro has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before De Niro 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 achievement. Robert De Niro 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. His stamina and persistence is Robert's great strength but it can also work against him; he can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Robert De Niro also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself in that way.
He is a team player and works well in collaboration with others who share his goals, ideals, and intentions. Robert De Niro can coordinate group efforts and inspire people to work toward a shared goal.
Team sports are also a lot of fun for Robert, and he could be a leader, coach, or director of any group endeavor.
De Niro dreams up creative solutions to problems and takes an imaginative, unusual approach to getting a job done. When difficulties arise Robert De Niro prefers to avoid conflict and confrontation in favor of more peaceful or subtle methods of resolving problems. Working to help others or for a cause that transcends his own narrow, personal interests is satisfying for De Niro. Robert De Niro has an artistic flair and appreciates the colorful, unique, or strange.
He is optimistic, generous and enterprising, and has an enthusiastic outlook. Robert De Niro has a strong desire to make something of him and is likely to be successful. Almost any initiative that De Niro takes will probably work out as he wants it to.
Robert De Niro seems to be in a constant state of deep inner turmoil, is excited easily and subject to changes of mood. Driven by inner compulsion he may do things that invite quarrels or disputes in his relationships and because of his hasty reactions De Niro also is prone to injuries.
His desire for a beautiful home, a comfortable, pleasing lifestyle, and time to relax and enjoy himself may well be the motivation for going out into the world and trying to achieve outward success. Robert De Niro may seesaw at times between his professional drives and desire for status, and the appeal of a rich personal life and home comforts.
Robert De Niro needs to have a strong spiritual base to his life in order to achieve anything in concrete, external terms. That is, fulfilling any ambitions he has for himself will depend upon whether or not De Niro feels connected to a higher source. Clarifying his own role or direction in life may take Robert De Niro some time, so he is apt to be a "late bloomer" when it comes to outward expression and success in material terms.
Robert De Niro perseveres through numerous obstacles, frustrations, delays, and setbacks in order to attain his ambitions in life. Sometimes it may feel as if he is pushing a boulder uphill. Robert De Niro should try to avoid bitterness or comparing his lot to others', as these could weaken his resolve.
His profession could involve physical strength and prowess, such as athletics, fire fighting, law enforcement, or the military. Robert De Niro would never be happy in a quiet, sit-down job. Vigorous competition and strenuous work are undoubtedly key components of both what Robert De Niro does and how he achieves his long-range goals.
Gaining his professional objectives or advancing in his career often requires considerable sacrifice on Robert's part. Specifically, Robert De Niro often feels that he must deny or at least compromise some very essential aspect of his in order to succeed professionally, protect his reputation, or what have you - and this is something De Niro may or may not be willing to do. Pure, unrestrained self-expression may well be more important to him than "going places" in a worldly sense. This is not to say Robert De Niro will not progress or succeed, only that he will do it on his own terms.
His inner life tends to be full of imagination and Robert De Niro is likely to have far-reaching ideas and plans. Peace-loving and generous, he is very sharing in his relationships. But Robert De Niro could become the victim of unintentional slights.
