drive and ambition
Once Theodora Richards sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Richards pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Theodora labors patiently and steadfastly until she achieves what she wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. She is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and she often shoulders more of the workload than her co-workers, usually without complaint. She often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. She prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to her success because once she gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Theodora Richards to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Theodora Richards has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before Richards gets going; but once she gets a momentum going, her energy level is strong and steady.
She is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Theodora Richards needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for her 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 she does. Theodora's stamina and persistence are her greatest assets, but they can also work against her; she can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Theodora Richards also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself as a result.
She is likely to be known for her drive, energy, ambition and competitive spirit. She is likely to espouse a career based on her ability to take initiative, be a leader, or excel in physical strength and prowess. Theodora Richards most definitely wants to be a winner and will work hard to achieve it.
Richards dreams up creative solutions to problems and takes an imaginative, unusual approach to getting a job done. When difficulties arise, Theodora Richards prefers to avoid conflict and confrontation in favor of more peaceful or subtle methods of resolving problems. Richards finds it satisfying to work in order to help others or for a cause that transcends her own narrow, personal interests. Theodora Richards has an artistic flair and appreciates the colorful, unique or strange.
She is highly ambitious and will drive herself (and others) mercilessly when she wants to achieve something. Competition can become deadly serious and rather ugly where Richards is concerned, as if her very life depended on winning or conquering. Her relationships with men may be especially fraught with conflict and power struggles. She is capable of tremendous effort but Theodora Richards must beware of burnout.
An intense team-worker, Theodora Richards is likely to realize plans that she makes in common with others. She may prefer to work with partners rather than alone and could form relationships with others for the purpose of working together.
Positions of honor, affluence, influence and stature in her community can be hers. Theodora Richards feels that her destiny involves leadership or distinguishing herself in some way. Theodora possesses an innate sense of greatness or importance, and a strong drive to achieve recognition for her talent. Theodora Richards should avoid excessive egotism and arrogant pride, for these could limit her opportunities.
Discipline, concentration, a realistic sense of what is attainable and steady dedication to achieving her ambitions are the keys to Theodora's progress. Theodora Richards is apt to move slowly but surely in the direction of her goals, and solid achievement is the outcome of this conservative approach.
