drive and ambition
Once Zubin Mehta sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Mehta pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Zubin labors patiently and steadfastly until he achieves what he wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. He is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and he often shoulders more of the workload than his co-workers, usually without complaint. He often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. He prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to his success because once he gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Zubin Mehta to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Zubin Mehta has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Mehta gets going; but once he gets a momentum going, his energy level is strong and steady.
He is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Zubin Mehta needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for his 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 he does. Zubin's stamina and persistence are his greatest assets, but they can also work against him; he can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Zubin Mehta also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
Quick-witted and sharp-tongued, Zubin Mehta enjoys arguing, debating, and contesting other people's opinions. He is quite forthright and sometimes tactless. Mehta can be very convincing about his point of view, but he is prone to a "hard-sell" approach that sometimes backfires. Challenging mental work is an apt venue for Zubin's aggressive intellect.
Conscientious, responsible, and serious about his work, Zubin Mehta accomplishes a great deal through his dedication. He 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 Zubin's success. However, Zubin Mehta is humble about his accomplishments and contributions, and may thus fail to receive the recognition or recompense that he deserves.
Indecision and confusion over his ambitions or direction in life may hold Zubin 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 Mehta's sole motivation or drive in life. Ministering to others in some way may be his calling, however. Alternatively, Zubin Mehta could use his dreamy, imaginative energies in creative ways - in the arts, music or entertainment.
His career is likely to involve some aspect of protecting, caring for and nurturing others. Equally important to him are home, family relationships, cherishing the past and carrying on tradition. Zubin Mehta is likely to be quite popular through his profession or business.
Achieving his professional objectives or advancing in his career often requires considerable sacrifice on Zubin's part. Specifically, Zubin Mehta often feels that he must deny or at least compromise some very essential aspect of his in order to succeed professionally, protect his reputation, or what have you - and this is something Mehta may or may not be willing to do. Pure, unrestrained self-expression may well be more important to him than "going places" in a worldly sense. This is not to say Zubin Mehta will not progress or succeed, only that he will do it on his own terms.
