drive and ambition
Shania Twain is extremely strong-willed and she pursues her goals and desires with passionate dedication and determination. She is capable of total concentration and tremendous discipline, and she is very difficult to influence or sway once her mind is made up. When Shania Twain wants something, Twain can be very one-sided and almost obsessed with it. She is very instinctive and does not always consciously know why she feels as strongly and deeply as she does.
She also tends to be secretive and unwilling to reveal her aims and intentions, and the intensity of her will and desire may not initially be apparent to others. However, Twain is very forceful in a quiet and subtle way. Shania Twain often manipulates or forces her will upon other people, without being overtly aggressive. She is not interested in confrontation but she is a formidable foe if she encounters opposition or aggression. Shania is courageous and has a rather primitive, raw side as well.
Asserting herself and being direct and forceful about what she wants is very often difficult for Shania. Though she may have a great deal of energy and drive, Shania Twain lacks confidence or simply the desire to put herself and her interests first. Positively, Twain can be very unselfish, working more on behalf of others rather than for herself.
However, Shania Twain denies her own desires and needs too much, and she is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage her finest efforts.
An inner conflict between the desire for greater opportunities and the desire to hold on to safe and predictable circumstances could make Twain somewhat discontent. Shania Twain longs for changes in her life, but may lack the tenacity to bring them about.
She is very sensitive to the inner qualities of sincerity, honesty, integrity and good will. Shania Twain notices these qualities (or the lack thereof) more quickly than others and brings them up frequently. She is philosophical about life and very perceptive, but may have an exaggerated sense of her own wisdom and depth of understanding of religious, metaphysical, artistic, or intuitive subjects.
The road to success, professional advancement, and fulfillment of her long-range goals is apt to be easier and smoother for Shania Twain than for many. Partly this is due to getting a great deal of support - financial, emotional, or both. Probably someone early in her life really believed in Shania and had high expectations for her. Shania Twain contributes to her 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 her. Whatever Shania Twain does is apt to be expansive and eventually quite prosperous.
Shania has confidence in herself and a healthy self-assured attitude. She makes up her own mind and has a clear idea of where she is headed. Shania Twain does not feel the need for recognition from others, but is likely to receive recognition anyway.
Very community spirited, Shania Twain has a strong sense of belonging when she is with other people. Shania likes to establish deep relationships with others and always strive for close cooperation with them.
