Born today, you are just the kind of person that other people need to have around to take things to the next level, whether intellectually, emotionally, physically, professionally or recreationally. The fact is, you never do anything halfway. If you choose to embark on a venture, it is likely you will excel at it, for you insist on being as good as you can be at anything you do. You do recognize, of course, that it is impossible to develop the same high level of expertise in every endeavor, but that doesn't stop you from trying! There are likely one or two natural talents that you will develop to the fullest, and you will surely rise to the top of any given profession that allows you to let those talents shine. Indeed, you have what it takes to be one of the "greats" if you let yourself.
None of this should be taken to mean that you are in any way cocky or arrogant. On the contrary, you are one of the most humble individuals born under your sign, down-to-earth and realistic in your beliefs and interactions, and always easygoing. You are willing to let others shine whenever possible, and you always encourage their success.
Also born on this date are: Michael Jordan, basketball player; Paris Hilton, actress; Bonnie Wright, actress; Joseph Gordon-Levitt, actor; Larry the Cable Guy, comedian; Denise Richards, model and actress; Jim Brown, football player; Jason Ritter, actor; Michael Bay, filmmaker; Rene Russo, actress; Lou Diamond Phillips, actor; Hal Holbrook, actor; Jerry O'Connell, actor; Mary Ann Mobley, actress and model; Buddy Ryan, football coach; Alan Bates, actor; Barry Humphries, actor; Arthur Kennedy, actor; Billie Joe Armstrong, singer-songwriter and musician.
