drive and ambition
Ron Paul is extremely strong-willed and he pursues his goals and desires with passionate dedication and determination. He is capable of total concentration and tremendous discipline, and he is very difficult to influence or sway once his mind is made up. When Ron Paul wants something, Paul can be very one-sided and almost obsessed with it. He is very instinctive and does not always consciously know why he feels as strongly and deeply as he does.
He also tends to be secretive and unwilling to reveal his aims and intentions, and the intensity of his will and desire may not initially be apparent to others. However, Paul is very forceful in a quiet and subtle way. Ron Paul often manipulates or forces his will upon other people, without being overtly aggressive. He is not interested in confrontation but he is a formidable foe if he encounters opposition or aggression. Ron is courageous and has a rather primitive, raw side as well.
He is a doer and an achiever. Energetic, courageous, and often impatient, Ron Paul will forge ahead with his plans regardless of the reservations of others. In fact, Paul often feels other people get in his way and he prefers to work on his own. Ron is active, assertive and rather competitive as well.
Ron Paul has a positive, "can-do" attitude and he tackles life's challenges with relish. He is self-confident and has a strong will to succeed, to see how much he can do and how far he can go. No matter what Paul accomplishes, he does not rest on his laurels. Ron wants to keep on going, to do even bigger things. He is proactive, enterprising and enthusiastic about new projects. He is not happy in situations that do not offer him challenges and the potential for future growth - no matter how secure or satisfactory they may seem in other respects. He enjoys competition, but Ron Paul competes mostly with himself, to see how much of his vision and potential he can really achieve. He makes a good leader, inspiring courage and confidence in others. Ron Paul usually enjoys good health and a high level of vitality.
His competitive drive and lofty ambitions (commented upon earlier) feed on either intense spiritual idealism or a rather inflated, grandiose idea of what Ron Paul can actually accomplish. His energy level is apt to fluctuate from being very high, as noted earlier, to rather low, as mentioned in the following paragraphs.
Unlike some who have hopes and fantasies, Paul is a person who tries to live out these dreams, no matter how impractical or fantastic they may seem. Ron Paul has a quixotic, idealistic streak. He may be more inspired to work for a higher cause than simply for his own personal achievement.
His self-control tends to be a bit weak and Ron Paul seems to crave excitement. He is subject to sudden changes and seeks emotional freedom. His wants and needs tend to be different than those around him and others may think he is crazy because of his impulsive actions.
Ron Paul's capacity to tolerate tension and ambivalence, compromise, and endure discomfort helps him to confront the challenges and difficulties in life. Remaining steadfast in the midst of crisis or sudden change, as well as knowing when to wait and when to make necessary changes are manifestations of these skills. Ron's timing is usually good.
His drives and ambitions in life may seem crazy or eccentric to the more conservative people Ron knows. There may well be no security or safety net (no retirement pension, no insurance benefits) in the work Ron Paul is engaged in. He is suited for freelancing, or professions that involve lots of change, innovation, variety, irregular schedules and the like. Ron Paul should expect the unexpected and numerous ups and downs throughout his life. He may change courses often and try many different things.
Achieving his ambitions and long-range goals will require much stamina and self-reliance as well as a clearly defined strategy. Numerous setbacks, obstructions or delays can also be expected. A father figure, mentor or authority in Paul's life may withdraw support at a crucial time. However, this will not stop Ron Paul and may ultimately be a blessing in disguise.
