Born today, you are a fiercely determined individual, and you are likely to pursue a single line of endeavor from an early age. Indeed, once you decide what you want to do with your life -- or put more simply, "what you want to be when you grow up" -- you are not likely to change your mind, no matter what kind of challenges or hardships you encounter as a result. Further, it is not likely that you will pick something easy for yourself; you thrive on hard work, and you feel you are not putting your talents to the best possible use if you are not overcoming obstacles, learning hard lessons and really putting it all on the line.
Money is likely to be a major factor in your decision-making process. Though you may well amass quite a fortune through a combination of hard work and discipline, making more money than you can spend is not really your primary goal. Being able to have what you want, when you want it, however, is always attractive to you!
Also born on this date are: Beyonce Knowles, singer; Ione Skye, actress; Phill Lewis, actor; Mike Piazza, baseball player; Damon Wayans, actor and comedian; Tom Watson, golfer; Mitzi Gaynor, actress, singer, dancer; Paul Harvey, news commentator; Richard Wright, author.
