challenges and difficulties
Clive has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave him feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with his peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Owen.
He is serious-minded and may have difficulty making light social conversation or participating in friendly, personal interchanges.
Clive Owen tries to be strictly accurate and he is critical of people who exaggerate or talk on subjects they really know little about. Owen withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Clive's silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
Clive has an inner conflict between idealism, hope, and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression by limitations and practical realities. Clive Owen needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve his aspirations. Owen will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
He is not afraid of hard work and leaves no stone unturned in the pursuit of his objectives. Clive Owen has a strong desire to overcome any difficulties or obstacles in his way and will do this at all cost, even if it means having to use force.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Clive Owen 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 Clive Owen needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Clive Owen 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 Clive's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Owen's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Clive Owen to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Clive Owen is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Clive Owen needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is in his marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. He may see the qualities that he needs to develop more fully (described above) in his partner. It is important for Clive Owen to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Clive Owen has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
