drive and ambition
Once Selena Gomez sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Gomez pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Selena labors patiently and steadfastly until she achieves what she wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. She is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and she often shoulders more of the workload than her co-workers, usually without complaint. She often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. She prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to her success because once she gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Selena Gomez to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Selena Gomez has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before Gomez gets going; but once she gets a momentum going, her energy level is strong and steady.
She is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Selena Gomez needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for her 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 she does. Selena's stamina and persistence are her greatest assets, but they can also work against her; she can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Selena Gomez also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself as a result.
Selena Gomez encounters numerous challenges and possibly defeats in the pursuit of her goals and desires, and her setbacks often occur because Selena has been too rash or intent on satisfying her own will regardless of the impact on others. Selena Gomez is intense and passionate, and simply does not know when to stop sometimes! Recklessness with others can be a problem for Gomez.
In order to achieve her ambitions in life Selena Gomez may well feel that she must make a significant break from her personal past, especially the influences of her childhood environment, her family relationships, or familial traditions. Gomez is liable to be the black sheep, or the one who left home and never really returned.
What Selena Gomez wants to do in life may seem "off the wall" or "way out in left field" to some people.
Selena Gomez needs to have a strong spiritual base to her life in order to achieve anything in concrete, objective terms. In other words, fulfilling any ambitions she has for herself will depend upon whether or not Gomez feels connected to a higher source. Clarifying her own role or direction in life may take Selena Gomez some time, so she is likely to be a "late bloomer" when it comes to external manifestations and success in material terms.
Selena Gomez possesses great zeal and passion for achieving her aspirations in life, and can be something of a fanatic when she sets her sights on a goal. Selena could do research work, psychological investigation, even detective work - anything that involves delving beneath the surface for hidden elements. A great love of mystery and exploring the unknown fuels many of Selena's personal ambitions.
The road to success, professional advancement and fulfillment of her long-range goals is likely to be easier and smoother for Selena Gomez than for many. This is partly due to her getting a great deal of financial and/or emotional support. Someone early in her life probably really believed in Selena and had high expectations for her. Selena Gomez contributes to her own success by setting high goals and enlisting the aid of friends and others to achieve these goals. A lack of selfishness or pettiness is a great boon to her. Whatever Selena Gomez does is likely to be expansive and eventually quite prosperous.
Achieving her 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 Gomez's life may withdraw support at a crucial time. However, this will not stop Selena Gomez and may ultimately be a blessing in disguise.
Gomez tends to be guided by inner vision and strong subconscious insight. She seems to have innate psychic talents and others may consider Selena Gomez a bit strange because of her interest in the occult and spiritual doctrines.
