drive and ambition
She is a perfectionist and has high standards for her own work. Siān Phillips often feels that if she wants something done right she must do it herself, for others do not do as thorough a job as she does. Doing a task well is very important to her, and she may labor over minute details that others would not bother with. Siān Phillips strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and she becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Siān Phillips can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that she will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that her efforts will simply not be good enough. She is usually modest and realistic in assessing what she can accomplish and, if anything, Siān Phillips underestimates herself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Phillips does apply herself diligently in a given area, she gradually gains self-confidence as she masters skills and develops expertise.
Siān Phillips conserves her energy and paces herself so that she does not waste or diffuse her efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit her opportunities. In short, Phillips may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
She is a doer and an achiever. Energetic, courageous, and often impatient, Siān Phillips will forge ahead with her plans regardless of the reservations of others. In fact, Phillips often feels other people get in her way and she prefers to work on her own. Siān is active, assertive and rather competitive as well.
Siān Phillips has a positive, "can-do" attitude and she tackles life's challenges with relish. She is self-confident and has a strong will to succeed, to see how much she can do and how far she can go. No matter what Phillips accomplishes, she does not rest on her laurels. Siān wants to keep on going, to do even bigger things. She is proactive, enterprising and enthusiastic about new projects. She is not happy in situations that do not offer her challenges and the potential for future growth - no matter how secure or satisfactory they may seem in other respects. She enjoys competition, but Siān Phillips competes mostly with herself, to see how much of her vision and potential she can really achieve. She makes a good leader, inspiring courage and confidence in others. Siān Phillips usually enjoys good health and a high level of vitality.
Her competitive drive and lofty ambitions (commented upon earlier) feed on either intense spiritual idealism or a rather inflated, grandiose idea of what Siān Phillips can actually accomplish. Her energy level is apt to fluctuate from being very high, as noted earlier, to rather low, as mentioned in the following paragraphs.
Siān Phillips has a very active and fertile imagination and Phillips' ambitions are never strictly mundane, practical and concrete. Siān Phillips has a strong desire to act out her fantasies, dreams, visions and ideals. Artistic creation, drama, or other areas in which Phillips can express herself imaginatively are ideally suited to her. Ordinary life seems drab and uninteresting to Phillips, and she needs to have some lofty dream or something grander than her own narrow personal interests to live for. Sometimes Phillips may be confused about exactly how and where to direct her energy and she often drifts along rather than making clear decisions about what she wants. Siān Phillips has a passive side and at times lacks the will power, physical energy, strength and fighting spirit to achieve her aims.
Language, words, communication, networking, clarity of speech or writing, being a messenger or go-between - these are key features in her career, as well as how Siān Phillips goes about achieving her goals and ambitions. "Work smarter, not harder" is Phillips' motto.
Siān has an abundance of energy, drive, and spirit to accomplish just about anything she desires. Much can be accomplished thanks to Siān's single-mindedness and zeal to get things done. Sometimes Siān Phillips pushes herself too hard without even realizing it, whereas at other times, even she needs to relax and take a break. Siān Phillips has the reputation for being a go-getter and a good worker.
Siān Phillips has a spiritual gift or vocation that colors her personal ambitions and drive for achievement. Helping people or serving the Whole is part of her role in life. Music, the arts, entertainment, and/or imagery, visualization or imagination may all be aspects of Siān's endeavor in the world.
Phillips knows how to discipline herself and faces difficulties with great courage. It may take time, energy and dedication for Siān Phillips to achieve her goals; and when she meets defeat, Siān rises above it and continues on her way.
