drive and ambition
Laurel is aspiring, enterprising and forever following a bright and distant star, planning some new venture or investigating new potential. He is definitely "upwardly mobile" in either a material or spiritual sense. Stan Laurel aims high and is not content with a mere quiet, secure existence. Stan likes to stretch his limits, see how far he can go and take risks. He is a positive thinker, expects success for himself, and is philosophical about failures. Laurel is flexible and he bounces back from disappointments rather quickly, usually with another hopeful new idea he wants to try. His enthusiasm and confidence are contagious and enable Stan Laurel to enlist the aid and support he needs for his projects. However, Stan Laurel sometimes promises more than he can actually achieve, because he is overly optimistic or pays insufficient attention to the practicalities involved.
He also tends to get distracted and to have too many things going on at once. Although it is very difficult for him, there are times when Stan Laurel simply must cultivate commitment, perseverance and persistence in order to make his dreams and goals reality. Too often Stan Laurel falls short of what he could attain because he is unwilling to persist through the difficult or less exciting times.
Stan Laurel also enjoys competition and usually does not take it too seriously. Sports and entrepreneurial endeavors are good ways to channel Stan's energy.
Quick-witted and sharp-tongued, Stan Laurel enjoys arguing, debating, and contesting other people's opinions. He is quite forthright and sometimes tactless.

Stan Laurel works hard and patiently to achieve his objectives and perseveres in spite of difficulties and discouragement. When concentrating on a single, clearly defined goal, Stan is able to accomplish a great deal, but he often feels that the path is long and arduous, and that he must struggle on alone and shoulder the burden single-handedly.
He is capable of great self-control and self-denial and can be a hard taskmaster, expecting far too much of himself. He also tends to hold himself back and doubt his own power and ability. Stan Laurel feels that he meets with great resistance whenever he tries to assert himself or take initiative. Anger and frustration can be big problems for Stan Laurel, especially when he tries to work with other people or depend too much on others for support. Stan works best in solitude.
Unless he has a goal that transcends merely personal gain, Stan Laurel is apt to become deeply discontented, aimless and uncertain of his direction in life. At his best, Stan Laurel will work or fight for a greater cause, and feel fulfilled through serving the greater good.

Positions of honor, affluence, influence, and stature in his community can be his. Stan Laurel feels he has a destiny which involves leadership or distinguishing himself in some line of endeavor. Stan possesses an innate sense of greatness or importance, and a strong drive to achieve recognition for his talent. Stan Laurel should avoid excessive egotism and arrogant pride, for these could limit his opportunities.
