Born today, you may not be destined for greatness, but you will surely do your part to ensure that the world is ultimately a better place than it was when you were born into it. Your every serious endeavor will be positive, productive, and likely quite lasting and memorable. You make an immediate impression on people; you are noticed when you walk into a crowded room, and the dynamic shifts to accommodate your presence. Even though not everyone will speak to you or about you, you can be sure that you are having an impact of some kind, whether large or small. You needn't make waves to have a lasting effect on the world around you; ripples are enough. Your ability to inspire is something quite special, and it is for this that you are likely to be remembered.
You have many talents, but it may take you some time to decide what to do with them. Being practical is not always in your sweet spot; there are times when you may in fact be quite flighty and unrealistic in your desires -- and in your actions, too. In the end, it's not what you do for yourself that matters most, but what you do for others.
