challenges and difficulties
Anatole Litvak has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Anatole is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack the capacity for joy and play. Anatole Litvak often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Litvak's that may inhibit him a great deal. Anatole Litvak must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob him of the playful, imaginative side of life.
It may be difficult for Anatole Litvak to play spontaneously or just let his hair down, for he tends to inhibit that side of his by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression he is making.
Anatole may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for he wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged and recognized as special in some way. Though he may indeed be outstanding, Anatole Litvak also needs to learn to relax and enjoy himself more.
At times Anatole Litvak struggles with nebulous worries, insecurities and fears that may be difficult to pinpoint. Mostly, he may be afraid of getting acquainted with the inner workings of his mind and soul, feeling uneasy with anything irrational or intangible. Anatole Litvak has to work hard to overcome being overly serious regarding the spiritual side of life, especially if his religious upbringing emphasized guilt and retribution. Reorienting himself in the direction of spiritual optimism will do much to lift the cloud of worry that settles over Anatole occasionally.
Anatole Litvak has a tendency to feel inadequate, perhaps even unlovable, and he tends to withdraw from others. Consequently, Litvak may feel lonely and out of touch with everyone, and that he has no support from anyone.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Anatole Litvak instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that he is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for him. The direction Anatole Litvak needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
He is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on his path, but when under stress Anatole Litvak becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what he has, he is apt to ignore the subtle signals he receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Anatole Litvak needs to learn the limits of his ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for him. Litvak also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward his appetites and desires, as Anatole Litvak tends to overindulge and/or deny himself excessively.
It is in his way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Anatole Litvak is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Litvak's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, he needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
