approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Serena's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Serena Williams comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Serena Williams - her real motivation, which describes the kind of person she is at heart and where her true priorities lie. Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Serena Williams" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Serena a little better. This page describes the disguise Williams wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Serena Williams has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and her two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though she may, on occasion, have her head in the clouds). Others often see Williams as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. She is, in fact, amazingly consistent for she possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to her regular routine. Serena does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though she has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Serena Williams is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. She follows her own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before she feels sure about it. Williams can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. She will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something she does not want to do.
When Williams has a purpose, she is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. Her obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make her flare up or respond to their anger. Serena Williams appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind her easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Serena often wins simply due to her relentless persistence and her ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for her reluctance to make changes is her very strong need for security. Serena is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and she also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of her own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Williams' hankering for permanence is that she easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Serena Williams has a keen appreciation of the natural world and she derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. She is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and she knows how to enjoy herself. Williams is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. She is also a great lover of beauty and her tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
She is highly verbal and communicative. Connecting with and talking to other people are key aspects of Serena's personality. Serena Williams may seem to be a busybody to others sometimes. She may also depend too much on other people's advice or feedback before making up her own mind, and Williams may thus appear to be indecisive.
The image that Serena Williams projects to the world and the person she really is inside, are considerably different. So much so that at times Serena may feel that people do not see or know the real her. They respond to the face they see, and the initial impression Williams makes may actually be misleading. Within her, also, there is much complexity and tension, and Serena Williams often feels that she needs to change herself in significant ways or that she continually holds back essential aspects of hers.
Williams is cheerful, warm-hearted and social and she strives for a pleasant life. She likes to be seen in social circles and is charitable to her fellow man. It makes Serena Williams happy to be involved in many relationships and she is very sympathetic toward everyone.
At times Serena Williams may feels that she is all alone in the world and that other people only cause difficulties for her. Constantly bounced to and fro by others, Serena has a strong desire to free herself from her stressful surroundings.
