drive and ambition
Once Smokey Robinson sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Smokey Robinson pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, William labors patiently and steadfastly until he achieves what he wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. He is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and he often shoulders more of the workload than his co-workers, usually without complaint. He often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. He prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to his success because once he gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Smokey Robinson to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Smokey Robinson has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Smokey Robinson gets going; but once he gets a momentum going, his energy level is strong and steady.
He is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Smokey Robinson needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for his 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 he does. William's stamina and persistence are his greatest assets, but they can also work against him; he can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Smokey Robinson also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
Asserting himself and being direct and forceful about what he wants is very often difficult for William. Though he may have a great deal of energy and drive, Smokey Robinson lacks confidence or simply the desire to put himself and his interests first. Positively, Smokey Robinson can be very unselfish, working more on behalf of others rather than for himself.
However, Smokey Robinson denies his own desires and needs too much, and he is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage his finest efforts.
He is very serious about attaining his goals and feels that keeping his nose to the grindstone is the only way to do it. It is by working hard, keeping up his efforts and focusing on a single objective that Smokey Robinson achieves his aims in life. William exercises great self-control, even self-denial, in order to accomplish what he desires. He meets obstacles stoically and struggles patiently through difficult circumstances. Smokey Robinson feels that he must rely on himself alone and that he must shoulder all of the responsibility. He can be a harsh disciplinarian, expecting far too much of himself and others. William often holds himself back, doubting his own power and ability. He may feel that he meets great resistance whenever he tries to assert himself or take initiative, which is very frustrating to Smokey Robinson. However, Smokey Robinson has the power to endure and a dogged determination to overcome all obstacles.
Smokey Robinson has a powerful will and when he wants something, he pursues it passionately and relentlessly until he achieves it. He may be so driven by his desire that he loses all objectivity. Smokey Robinson often becomes compulsive, even obsessed, with doing or achieving something, no matter what the costs or how hard he must work for it. His forcefulness may be veiled or subtle, for often Smokey Robinson does not reveal his real aims and intentions to others until they cross him. Intense power struggles and relationships with a strong dominance/submissiveness theme are likely to erupt. Smokey Robinson has enormous energy reserves, and is capable of extraordinary effort and great achievement if he uses his energies for constructive purposes.
His drives and ambitions in life may seem crazy or eccentric to the more conservative people William knows. There may well be no security or safety net (no retirement pension, no insurance benefits) in the work Smokey Robinson does. He is suited for freelancing, or professions that involve lots of change, innovation, variety, irregular schedules, and the like. Smokey Robinson should expect the unexpected and numerous ups and downs in the course of his life. He may change course often, and try many different things.
He is refined and sensitive and likely to have subconscious insights or hunches. Very intuitive, the feelings Smokey Robinson gets about things probably will be accurate. He is also creative and inspirational and could do well in some artistic field.
Very community spirited, Smokey Robinson has a strong sense of belonging when he is with other people. William likes to establish deep relationships with others and always strive for close cooperation with them.
