challenges and difficulties
Al-Fayed both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable with others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting himself be known in a deep way does not come easily to Dodi, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Dodi al-Fayed is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Al-Fayed.
His childhood or his relationships with his parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Dodi from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Dodi al-Fayed felt deprived in some manner, whether or not he actually was deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of his needs and feelings may typify his early life, at least as Al-Fayed remembers it. Forgiving his parents and/or letting go of any resentments he has about the limitations that he experienced early in his life is crucial. Also, Dodi al-Fayed needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Dodi accomplish this.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Dodi al-Fayed will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Dodi feel a little out of step with others. Dodi al-Fayed takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Dodi feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Dodi al-Fayed has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to him, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
He is inclined to preserve and build up his heritage. Others are attracted to him, but at the same time Dodi al-Fayed gives the impression of being unapproachable. Al-Fayed tends to hold back his feelings and is somewhat inhibited with others, especially in his love relationships.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Dodi al-Fayed 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 Dodi al-Fayed needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Dodi al-Fayed to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Dodi al-Fayed needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Dodi directs his attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", he is apt to dabble, scatter his energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for his life and aligning his daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Al-Fayed's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
The arena he is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Dodi al-Fayed should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials he feels he possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.

His nature is a bit restless and unpredictable and because of this, others may see Dodi as somewhat unstable. Dodi al-Fayed is inclined to involve himself with unusual enterprises and tends to become overly excited in the presence of other people.
