drive and ambition
Once Zola Budd sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Budd pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Zola 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 Zola Budd to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Zola Budd has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before Budd 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. Zola Budd 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. Zola'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. Zola Budd also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself as a result.
Zola Budd often buys things on impulse and she can be reckless with her material resources and money. Zola has certain possessions that she is extremely attached to and possessive of.
Conscientious, responsible, and serious about her work, Zola Budd accomplishes a great deal through her dedication. She is the person in the office or company who follows through, quietly sustains the effort, and keeps on going in spite of tedium, setbacks, or dry spells. This is often the key to Zola's success. However, Zola Budd is humble about her accomplishments and contributions, and may thus not receive the recognition or recompense that she deserves.
An intense team-worker, Zola Budd 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.
She is light-hearted and sociable and enjoys attending social gatherings. Most projects that Zola takes up should have a successful outcome. Zola Budd also has a great desire for beauty and she likes to surround herself with beautiful things.
Innovation, discovery, originality, experimentation, and opening up new channels of understanding are important aspects of her life's work. Budd's ambitions in life, as well as the way she achieves those goals, are unique or "alternative". Concerned with future trends and the new, Zola Budd is apt to be ahead of her time in many respects.
Zola Budd possesses great zeal and passion for achieving her aspirations in life, and can be something of a fanatic when she sets her sights on a goal. Zola could do research work, psychological investigation, even detective work - anything that involves delving beneath the surface for hidden elements. A great love of mystery and exploring the unknown fuels many of Zola's personal ambitions.
