drive and ambition
Tracy Chapman has a warrior's attitude - decisive, courageous, and bold. Tracy tends to always crave action, even when waiting for an opportune moment or not doing anything at all would actually be effective in the long-term. She absolutely cannot tolerate being passive or even patient about getting what she wants. Tracy Chapman feels that it is up to her to take the initiative and she pursues her goal or desire very aggressively.
She is also self-reliant, in that she does not depend on others to do things for her or help her along, and Tracy Chapman is often irritated when other people offer advice or direction. Cooperation rarely comes easily to her. She is willful and can be quite oblivious to others' desires or feelings when she is pursuing something she wants. She is highly competitive, enjoys a challenge or a good fight, and may be downright pugnacious at times. Abounding in energy and enthusiasm at the start of a new venture, Tracy Chapman needs a very positive response and encouragement in order to sustain her interest throughout. If a project is not successful from the start, she is liable to drop it and move on to something else rather than rework or refine it. She has a strong desire to blaze new trails and put her own twist to things. Chapman can discover, invent and initiate new things, but she is impatient and may lack the stamina and perseverance needed see a long-term project through.
She has passionate convictions and will fight for them when challenged. Tracy Chapman is willing to dedicate a great deal of her energy and force to an important cause, and she will act decisively on her beliefs, rather than simply espousing them.
Sometimes Chapman gets so involved and identified with her ideas that she cannot really be receptive to anyone who opposes her philosophically.
Tracy has the patience and the stamina to realize her visions and bring them down to earth, a fine balance between hard work and realism, and a positive, hopeful spirit. Tracy Chapman grows through following systems and plans, and taking one step at a time. Overnight success or instant enlightenment is not what Chapman aims for. Her patient, well-balanced approach gives Tracy Chapman credibility with many different types of people, and she is apt to gain an excellent reputation for being able to do big things without overreaching or becoming pretentious.
Tracy Chapman has a powerful drive for achievement, and a career in athletics, or some other very vigorous, challenging, active work that appeals to her. She is apt to push herself very hard, trying to outdo the competition. When possible, Chapman likes to work independently, blazing trails for others to follow. Impatience, recklessness, or a too ego-centered approach to success could be her downfall. (Knowing Tracy Chapman, however, she is apt to get right back up!)
