challenges and difficulties
Carole Cook has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, she prevents herself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Cook is more rigid and dogmatic than she realizes. Her approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Carole Cook takes her own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if she is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
She is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with her duty, her public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Carole Cook understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and she is capable of much self-discipline and patience once she sets her sights on a goal.
But Carole Cook is very judgmental and hard on herself if she fails to attain success, and she can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize her efforts.
Carole Cook tends to be her own worst enemy, demanding inhuman perfection of herself and harshly criticizing or persecuting herself when she does not measure up. Perhaps circumstances or relationships in her life have been extremely difficult and demanding, reinforcing Carole's belief that she must struggle alone.
She is capable of tremendous effort and of overcoming great odds and handicaps. Through these efforts Carole Cook develops her power and inner strength. However, Carole Cook should not make life harder than it is. She must give herself permission to let up sometimes, and to realize that she is only human.

The direction Carole Cook needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Carole Cook needs to take what she has learned (either through formal education or her 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 Carole's quality of life or that of persons in her world, is of little real value. Putting Cook's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in her daily relationships, and in the multiple choices she makes every day, will enable Carole Cook to really test her belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Carole Cook is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Carole Cook needs to cultivate her ability to live in the present!
