ou look up to one of your parents and they have a big influence on your career path. Your parents’ approval determines whether you pursue the path you want or whether you pursue a path they determine for you. Or, you may choose a path just to spite them (depending on your aspects). Blazing your own trail professionally may be a struggle because you want the admiration of authority figures yet it can take time to obtain that admiration. You seek role models for yourself, people you can model yourself after as you work your way to the top. You want to be known and you want to make a difference. You also want to be a role model to others. You want people to admire and look up to you. You hope that one day other people will want to be just like you and want to achieve want you have achieved. You want to be the inspirational story.
Your sense of self is tied to your ability to find a satisfying role in life. Your self-confidence is directly related to your ability to display personal power in the world. You want to be an authority on something. You’re a self-identified power-player. Your ego is bound up with achievement. Loss of status is a blow to your self-worth. You’re not a good loser. You lose belief in yourself when you fail to achieve your goals. You want to be on top. Your fear of failure may be so great that you never stretch yourself to see what is possible. You feel you have something important to share with the world – yourself and your creative vision. You feel it is your destiny to rise in status. You crave to be recognized by the world for your gifts. You want to be prominent in your field. You want to reach your potential. You want to be at the top of your game. You want to be a leader in your industry. You want to be a star in your field. You want to be respected by your peers. On a good day, you feel you can achieve anything.
Your profession is your identity. You live to fill a vocation. You aspire to make a mark on the world. You apply yourself to achieving your ambitions. You seek promotions and advancement. You don’t want to stagnate in one position. You feel most like yourself when you obtain a success. Failing crushes you. Bad experiences of failure can cripple you. You might never leave the house after a harrowing defeat. Hiding your light. You might give up too soon. You suffer an identity crisis until you are able to achieve your aspirations. If you cannot attain your aspirations, you may fall into a pattern of self-loathing. You may be too dependent on pats on the back, nods of approval, and flattery.
You feel most fulfilled when you put yourself into your work rather than running on autopilot. You want to be known for your leadership qualities. You want to stand out from the crowd. You have an opinion about your profession and you want to share it. You can be a visionary in your field. You bring a strong personal viewpoint. Your name becomes synonymous with the work that you do. You want to see your name in lights. You want a place in the sun. You care about public opinion of your work. You are your brand. You are the face of your company. Your reputation is important to you. Your status is important to you. Your title matters. Being noticed matters. You’d hire a PR team if you could. Slander is one of your worst fears. In your eyes, your work and contribution are beyond reproach.
