challenges and difficulties
Stojko doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Elvis is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for him.
Stojko 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 Elvis Stojko 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 Elvis Stojko better than being with groups of his own peers.
The conflict between spiritual needs and ideals versus material desires or limitations of the "real world" is one of Elvis' ongoing challenges. It may be hard for Elvis Stojko to sort out his true values, especially when he is enmeshed in the demands of mundane life. Times of retreat, isolation, meditation and prayer could be helpful to Stojko in this regard. Finding inner strength through spirituality and attunement to a higher source is ultimately the answer for him.
Stojko forges ahead diligently, but may have to work harder than others to gain recognition for his efforts. Reserved and shy, Elvis Stojko tends to build a wall between himself and others and he seems to be more receptive to older and more mature people.
Since he lacks the capacity to adapt, Elvis Stojko tends to be rebellious and fight hard against oppression. This could even lead to violent incidents, so Elvis should try to keep his temper at bay. He may have to work extremely hard and handle a great many responsibilities.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Elvis Stojko 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 Elvis Stojko needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Elvis Stojko's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Stojko's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Stojko's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Stojko's ideals is one way to do this.
When under stress he is likely to become overly focused on himself and his own little world.
Instead of "how will this benefit or hurt me?" Stojko's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, Elvis Stojko needs to strike a balance between doing for himself and doing for others, by discovering how Stojko's unique gifts can benefit others.
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 Elvis Stojko to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Elvis Stojko has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
