drive and ambition
Once Shirley MacLaine sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. MacLaine pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Shirley 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 Shirley MacLaine to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Shirley MacLaine has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before MacLaine 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. Shirley MacLaine 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. Shirley'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. Shirley MacLaine also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself as a result.
Shirley MacLaine meets numerous challenges and possibly defeats in pursuit of her goals and desires, and her setbacks often occur because Shirley has been too rash or intent on working her own will regardless of the impact on others. Shirley MacLaine is intense and passionate, and simply does not know when to stop sometimes! Recklessness with others can be a problem for MacLaine.
Dynamic, self-willed, and fiercely independent, she has extraordinary drive and energy. When Shirley MacLaine wants something, she wants it this very minute, and she acts quickly, impulsively and decisively. Her impatience inclines Shirley MacLaine to be abrupt with people and reckless. She needs a great deal of personal freedom to do things in her own way and does not happily conform to schedules, rules or regimes imposed by others. She is intolerant of authority and can be very rebellious. She is very frank with others, sometimes brutally so. Shirley MacLaine may have an explosive temper. High-strung and often nervous and tense, Shirley finds it difficult to slow down, pace herself or relax. Shirley MacLaine is always on the go. She is restless, daring and experimental.
Patience is not one of her strong virtues and Shirley MacLaine does what needs to be done impetuously and hastily, leading to great potential for accidents. Shirley MacLaine also has a streak of rebellion in her that could bring disputes and arguments with those around her.
In meeting her challenges and difficulties in life, Shirley MacLaine does have allies: her ability to tolerate tension and ambivalence, her ability to compromise, and a capacity to endure discomfort. Remaining steady in the midst of crisis or sudden change is an aspect of this, as well as knowing when to wait and when to make necessary changes. Shirley's timing is usually good.
Discipline, concentration, a realistic sense of what is attainable, and steady dedication to achieving her ambitions are the keys to Shirley's progress. Shirley MacLaine is apt to move slowly but constantly in the direction of her goals, and solid achievement is the outcome of this conservative approach.
Her profession could involve physical strength and prowess, such as athletics, fire fighting, law enforcement, or the military. Shirley MacLaine would never be happy in a quiet, sit-down job. Vigorous competition and strenuous work are undoubtedly key components of both what Shirley MacLaine does and how she achieves her long-range goals.
She is attracted to careers which are somewhat unusual, creative, or avant-garde, and which offer Shirley MacLaine a maximum amount of freedom and independence. The nine-to-five routine is really not her cup of tea. Shirley may make her living in diversified ways rather than focusing on one specific area or talent, and she is happiest when she can create a place in the world for her unique combination of different talents and interests. It is hard and unnatural for Shirley MacLaine to try to fit herself into a ready-made mold.
Her inner life tends to be full of imagination and Shirley MacLaine is likely to have far-reaching ideas and plans. Peace-loving and generous, she is very sharing in her relationships. But Shirley MacLaine could become the victim of unintentional slights.
