drive and ambition
He is a perfectionist and has high standards for his own work. Stevie Wonder often feels that if he wants something done right he must do it himself, for others do not do as thorough a job as he does. Doing a task well is very important to him, and he may labor over minute details that others would not bother with. Stevie Wonder strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and he becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Stevie Wonder can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that he will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that his efforts will simply not be good enough. He is usually modest and realistic in assessing what he can accomplish and, if anything, Stevie Wonder underestimates himself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Wonder does apply himself diligently in a given area, he gradually gains self-confidence as he masters skills and develops expertise.
Stevie Wonder conserves his energy and paces himself so that he does not waste or diffuse his efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit his opportunities. In short, Wonder may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
Asserting himself and being direct and forceful about what he wants is often very difficult for Stevie. Though he may have a great deal of energy and drive, Stevie Wonder lacks confidence or simply the desire to put himself and his interests first. On the positive side, Wonder can be very unselfish, working more for the benefit of others than for himself.
However, Stevie Wonder 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 light-hearted and sociable and enjoys attending social gatherings. Most projects that Stevie takes up should have a successful outcome. Stevie Wonder also has a great desire for beauty and he likes to surround himself with beautiful things.
He may have to overcome something in his background or personal past in order to achieve his long-range goals and ambitions. Sometimes Stevie Wonder may feel pulled in two different directions - what others expect of him or what he needs to do in order to progress versus what his old conditioning or his emotional predisposition would have him do. Overcoming the pull of the past is the key.
Indecision and confusion over his ambitions or direction in life may hold Stevie back from achieving anything solid, especially in his early life. He is very much a dreamer and his interests and inclinations may not translate very readily into concrete goals. Personal glory or accomplishment can never be Wonder's sole motivation or drive in life. Ministering to others in some way may be his calling, however. Alternatively, Stevie Wonder could use his dreamy, imaginative energies in creative ways - in the arts, music or entertainment.
Stevie Wonder achieves his professional goals and long-range ambitions through self-discipline, concentration, and climbing the mountain one step at a time.
