Yvonne de Gaulle
drive and ambition
Once Yvonne de Gaulle sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. de Gaulle pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Yvonne 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 Yvonne de Gaulle to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Yvonne de Gaulle has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before de Gaulle 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. Yvonne de Gaulle 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. Yvonne'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. Yvonne de Gaulle also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself as a result.
It is not easy for Yvonne de Gaulle to show the world at large her angry or competitive side, but her family sees this side of her more often. Temper tantrums, tumultuous family relationships, or a great deal of competition between de Gaulle and one or more of her relations is likely. Yvonne de Gaulle likes to be the one in charge in her home and she puts a lot of energy into making it the way she wants it.
While Yvonne de Gaulle enjoys challenging herself to extend her abilities or try new activities, she is apt to bite off more than she can chew. Failures or accidents due to overestimating her prowess or capacities and being overly eager and poorly prepared, may result. Fortunately these disappointments or blunders do not dampen Yvonne's spirits or her ambitions permanently; she has a lot of resilience and optimism. Most likely Yvonne de Gaulle will need to develop her physical coordination and sense of timing in order to do some of the activities she dreams of doing.
Although enterprising and proactive, Yvonne de Gaulle is also capable of ample much self-discipline, patience and effort. She may swing from confidence and trust in the future to pessimism and doubt, when it comes to achieving her aims in life.
Yvonne de Gaulle has the gift of endurance and perseverance, as well as the willingness to work hard to achieve her objectives. Once she decides she wants something or makes a commitment, Yvonne de Gaulle will do it "even if it takes forever". Self-discipline comes naturally to Yvonne and she instinctively realizes that any creative achievement is "10% inspiration, 90% perspiration". de Gaulle chooses practical, realistic goals and pursues them step-by-step in a well-planned, orderly fashion. Yvonne de Gaulle likes to concentrate on one thing at a time and she does a thorough job. She enjoys working in solitude, and often feels she does her best work when she is alone.
She is hyper-sensitive and her energy could be somewhat low. Yvonne de Gaulle seems to shy away from any physical effort and has a tendency to dream of big accomplishments that never materialize. Yvonne prefers to live in a world of illusion rather than to face reality.
Conflicts in her early childhood are apt to be played out in Yvonne's later professional life. Unresolved rivalry with a parent or sibling may result in antagonism toward superiors or competitors. If Yvonne de Gaulle can work through some of these past events, she will have even more energy and drive to achieve positive goals.
Yvonne de Gaulle achieves her professional goals and long-range ambitions through self-discipline, concentration, and climbing the mountain one step at a time. Unlike the lucky few for whom all doors seem to magically open, Yvonne has to formulate a realistic plan and follow it diligently in order to succeed. Yvonne de Gaulle will have to pay her dues and endure a few setbacks. Patience is her ally.
Her father or grandfather probably influenced de Gaulle's choice of career, and will back her up - as long as Yvonne chooses to follow in their footsteps.
Gaining her professional objectives or advancing in her career often requires considerable sacrifice on Yvonne's part. Specifically, Yvonne de Gaulle often feels that she must deny or at least compromise some very essential aspect of her in order to succeed professionally, protect her reputation, or what have you - and this is something de Gaulle may or may not be willing to do. Pure, unrestrained self-expression may well be more important to her than "going places" in a worldly sense. This is not to say Yvonne de Gaulle will not progress or succeed, only that she will do it on her own terms.
Her emotional life is likely to be strained and Yvonne has a tendency to be a loner. Her outlook could be a bit one-sided and Yvonne de Gaulle may find it hard to compromise. It is difficult for her to maintain good give-and-take relationships.
