challenges and difficulties
David has difficulty asserting his will and desires directly and openly. He may also suppress his anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in himself are important tasks for Niven.
Niven is generally not a "joiner" and he does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If David Niven does participate in a group, he may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or he may simply feel that he does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits David Niven better than being with groups of his own peers.
David Niven becomes tense and upset rather easily. He becomes irritated by the unwillingness of others to make changes. In his eagerness to see his inspirations materialize, Niven is inclined to forego tact and diplomacy in favor of achieving his goals. His occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
David Niven strives and struggles a great deal with his ideals or spiritual aspirations. He may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and in-depth study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or he may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals; however, he can never quite divorce himself from his idealistic concerns.
Because of his inner reserve and basic shyness, David Niven appears to lack the ability to adapt and is a bit inhibited when dealing with other people. His approach is somewhat serious and it is difficult for David to face the public.
He is a bit skeptical, somewhat irritable, and others may find David Niven quarrelsome or nagging. His nervousness seems to stem from his tendency to over-work himself, and Niven should try not to make more demands on others than they are able to handle.
At some point in his life David Niven may experience a tragic love relationship that affects him deeply. He may remain heavily burdened by certain disturbing experiences, thereby rendering David cold or bitter.
He is somewhat pessimistic and prone to depression. David Niven may feel like withdrawing from everything, with the sense that he is not adequately equipped to handle his life. He may need someone else's point of view to balance his overly pessimistic outlook.
David wants to go his own way and tends to withdraw into himself. He prefers to be alone and tends to cut himself off from other people. David Niven may be a bit too serious and conservative.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which David Niven 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 David Niven needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
David Niven 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 David's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Niven's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable David Niven to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, David Niven is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. David Niven needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is deep within himself, as David Niven faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that David Niven 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.
