"Slow and steady wins the race" - this pretty much sums up a Capricorn's life. You carve your own niche in the world and despite being the proverbial slow runner you make sure that you win the race. And in the end it is the victory all that counts!
Your patience and perseverance is admirable. Not the ones to be cowed down by failures, your fortitude and ability to move past failures set you apart from the rest. You are the hero of your own life and come what may, you will never grovel to anyone to achieve your goals, rather would go for the long and thorny road and endure hardships- such is your sincerity towards your goals and of course your self-esteem would never permit you to resort to anything demeaning or unfair.
Each and every move you make to mount the high mountain to your goals has probably been well practiced and well thought of, so that even if the climb is steep you shall never fall and if you fall once, you make sure that the same is not repeated, you learn from your mistakes and never ever commit the same folly again.
You don't waste your energy in useless pursuits; you just don't have any time for anything else but your goals. At a party, you are not someone surrounded by hordes of people, but do have your own share of admirers with you, all thanks to your witty sense of humour.
