drive and ambition
Once Samuel Beckett sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Beckett pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Samuel 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. He often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. 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, it is easy for Samuel Beckett to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Samuel Beckett has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Beckett 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 achievements. Samuel Beckett 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. Samuel's stamina and persistence are his greatest assets, but they can also work against him; he can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Samuel Beckett also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
Beckett is attracted to feisty, dynamic, strong-willed people, and he seems to need a healthy dose of fireworks in his personal relationships. Samuel Beckett can be very combative, or get involved with people who are. Ideally Samuel will join forces with people who are energetic and ambitious, but not too domineering or aggressive.
He is very sensitive to the inner qualities of sincerity, honesty, integrity and good will. Samuel Beckett notices these qualities (or the lack thereof) more quickly than others and brings them up frequently. He is philosophical about life and very perceptive, but may have an exaggerated sense of his own wisdom and depth of understanding of religious, metaphysical, artistic, or intuitive subjects.
Samuel Beckett'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. Samuel's timing is usually good.
Beckett is intensely competitive and may engage in furious battles of will, numerous conflicts, and possible public controversy on the road toward meeting his objectives. Samuel Beckett may be drawn to activities that are dangerous - in the line of fire, so to speak. He puts himself on the line. Anger or recklessness could be his downfall.
Happiness and fulfillment in Samuel's career are likely because he gives his all to it and will not make the sorts of compromises that others feel compelled to make in order to succeed. Self-expression and being his own person are very important to Beckett.
