Born today, you are something of a force of nature, strong in will and personality, endowed with tremendous talents, and always willing to take something to the limit to ensure your success. No quitter, you will often stick with something long after others would have given up -- not because you think you'll eventually succeed or win the top prize, but because you know the value of commitment and are aware of how much you can learn by seeing something through to the bitter end. You know how to use time to your advantage, and you are able to do more with it than most others. You can seem to be almost inexhaustible -- your energy regenerates quickly, and you never come up short of resources when working on a given task.
You may enjoy a lucky break as you first start down the road to professional success, and this will enable you to leapfrog many competitors and bypass certain obstacles that might otherwise hold you up. Take care, however: You must never allow yourself to become overconfident or cocky!
