challenges and difficulties
Ben Stiller often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he may sense both a great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or over sensitivity is an important task for Stiller.
He is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with his duty, his public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Ben Stiller understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and he is capable of much self-discipline and patience once he sets his sights on a goal.
But Ben Stiller is very judgmental and hard on himself if he fails to attain success, and he can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize his efforts.
Because he lacks self-confidence, Ben Stiller has the feeling that his luck has abandoned him. He is inclined to sit and wait for the right opportunities to come along, place too much emphasis on wishful thinking, and then get disappointed when nothing happens.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ben Stiller 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 Ben Stiller needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Ben Stiller needs to take what he has learned (either through formal education or his own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Ben's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Stiller's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Ben Stiller to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Ben Stiller is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Ben Stiller needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is deep within himself, as Ben Stiller faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Ben Stiller keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Ben Stiller back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being excessively egocentric or proud, needing personal recognition and applause, wanting to be center stage all the time, needing to be important and special.
