drive and ambition
Graf is aspiring, enterprising and forever following a bright and distant star, planning some new venture or investigating new potential. She is definitely "upwardly mobile" in either a material or spiritual sense. Steffi Graf aims high and is not content with a mere quiet, secure existence. Steffi likes to stretch her limits, see how far she can go and take risks. She is a positive thinker, expects success for herself, and is philosophical about failures. Graf is flexible and she bounces back from disappointments rather quickly, usually with another hopeful new idea she wants to try. Her enthusiasm and confidence are contagious and enable Steffi Graf to enlist the aid and support she needs for her projects. However, Steffi Graf sometimes promises more than she can actually achieve, because she is overly optimistic or pays insufficient attention to the practicalities involved.
She also tends to get distracted and to have too many things going on at once. Although it is very difficult for her, there are times when Steffi Graf simply must cultivate commitment, perseverance and persistence in order to make her dreams and goals reality. Too often Steffi Graf falls short of what she could attain because she is unwilling to persist through the difficult or less exciting times.
Steffi Graf also enjoys competition and usually does not take it too seriously. Sports and entrepreneurial endeavors are good ways to channel Steffi's energy.
Steffi Graf expects to work hard for anything she accomplishes and she has no patience for people who do not pull their own weight. Work is a passion for Steffi at times, and she pushes herself too hard. Graf can also be too demanding of the people she works with.
If her energy is not invested in a job or career, Steffi Graf can become fanatic about her health, and may exercise or "work out" vigorously and perhaps excessively.
Graf frequently meets a tremendous amount of resistance whenever she wants to assert herself in a decisive way, or do something just for herself. This resistance comes from within (in the form of self-doubt, fear, or a heavy sense of responsibility to others), as well as from practical and circumstantial limitations. Especially when initiating a project or acting independently, Steffi Graf may tell herself that she is not really prepared, or that she is not good enough (yet), and she puts a lot of pressure on herself. Despite the obstacles, setbacks, or lack of support she encounters, Steffi Graf can accomplish a lot in a patient, steady fashion. However, she is apt to aim too low, and not realize how much she is truly capable of.
Steffi Graf should try to recognize that she does not have to justify her existence or prove her worth by her accomplishments.
Indecision and confusion over her ambitions or direction in life may hold Steffi back from achieving anything solid, especially in her early life. She is very much a dreamer and her interests and inclinations may not translate very readily into concrete goals. Personal glory or accomplishment can never be Graf's sole motivation or drive in life. Ministering to others in some way may be her calling, however. Or Steffi Graf could use her dreamy, imaginative energies in creative ways - the arts, music or entertainment field.
Happiness and fulfillment in Steffi's career are likely, because she gives her all to it and will not make the sorts of compromises that others feel compelled to make in order to succeed. Self-expression and being her own person are very important to Graf.
Enormous aid is apt to come to Steffi Graf through her father or another important man in her life. Her relationships with superiors and those in a position to boost her career are usually excellent.
Graf may well have an unusual destiny or pivotal role to play in a drama that involves much more than her own personal ambitions and professional aims. This could involve uncovering secrets, bringing deception, cruelty, or injustice to light, or making fundamental changes in some field. Steffi's work may also include dealing with life and death situations, crises, and emergencies. Somewhere along the way, fate may force Graf's hand - and it may require some self-sacrifice on her part. On the other hand, her real work may be rather subtle - a quiet transformation of a particular area or field. Steffi Graf is meant to do in-depth work.
