drive and ambition
Once Salman Rushdie sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment to it are extraordinary. Rushdie pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Salman 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 Salman Rushdie to follow it through to its completion. Getting started is more difficult. Salman Rushdie has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Rushdie 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. Salman Rushdie 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 Salman's great strength but it can also work against him; he can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Salman Rushdie also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself in that way.
He is a doer and an achiever. Energetic, courageous, and often impatient, Salman Rushdie will forge ahead with his plans regardless of others' reservations. In fact, Rushdie often feels other people get in his way and he prefers working on his own. Salman is active, assertive, and rather competitive as well.
Salman has an adventurous, entrepreneurial spirit and the instincts for big success. Competition and rivalry spurs Salman Rushdie on to do his best, and to push past his limits. He enjoys taking initiative, and has positive expectations which generate positive results. At times, Salman Rushdie is overconfident, cocky, and vainglorious, though. Sports and business are both suitable arenas for Rushdie.
Rushdie is able to do his work and take responsibility for overcoming his own problems and challenges in life, while at the same time being open to spiritual comfort, aid and guidance. A good balance between being well-grounded and being receptive to spirit or the inner world is working in Salman's favor. Enjoying simplicity and cultivating peace enable Salman Rushdie to evolve and to work through his challenges.
His ambition and/or role in life involve communication, message-carrying, writing or speaking, languages, or being an intermediary. Sometimes Salman Rushdie is apt to feels that he has to work harder than others to get the word out or receive public recognition. "Work smarter, not harder" should be his motto.
Salman has an abundance of energy, drive, and spirit to accomplish just about anything he desires. Much can be accomplished thanks to Salman's single-mindedness and zeal to get things done. Sometimes Salman Rushdie pushes himself too hard without even realizing it, but sometimes even he needs to relax and stop doing. Salman Rushdie has the reputation for being a go-getter and a good worker.
The road to success, professional advancement, and fulfillment of his long-range goals is apt to be easier and smoother for Salman Rushdie than for many. Partly this is due to getting a great deal of support - financial, emotional, or both. Probably someone early in his life really believed in Salman and had high expectations for him. Salman Rushdie contributes to his own success by having large goals, and by including, helping and enlisting the aid of friends and others in reaching those goals. A lack of selfishness or pettiness is a great boon to him. Whatever Salman Rushdie does is apt to be expansive and eventually quite prosperous.
Rushdie's profession may be unusual, very innovative and progressive, or outside the "mainstream", providing alternative services or products. A certain uneven, erratic quality characterizes Salman's career and rise in the professional arena. Sudden changes of fortune, unexpected upsets, and twists of fate are likely.
