Born today, you are likely to have determined at a very early age what you wish to do with your life. Rather than merely hope that your wish comes to pass, you will begin working conscientiously and tirelessly toward your desired ends. You know that no one is likely to give you any special treatment, and that your first big break will be the combined result of luck, preparation and positioning. In other words, nothing is likely to be handed to you on a silver platter, but this is just fine with you. You enjoy the work that is required, and you understand that with every new effort comes learning, an essential building block of accomplishment.
You may enjoy your single greatest success doing something that takes others by surprise -- the kind of thing, in fact, that many might have considered impossible, or at least improbable in the extreme. You never shy away from difficulty, and you are drawn to endeavors that are in some way unusual or unconventional.
Also born on this date are: Bryan Cranston, actor; Wanda Sykes, actress and comedian; Rachel Weisz, actress; Willard Scott, television personality; John Heard, actor; Maurice Ravel, composer; Lynn Swann, football player; Peter Sarsgaard, actor; Franco Harris, football player; Daniel J. Travanti, actor; Taylor Dayne, singer; Piet Mondrian, artist; Jeff Kent, baseball player.
