challenges and difficulties
Eric Stoltz has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Eric is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Eric Stoltz often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Stoltz's which may inhibit him a great deal. Eric Stoltz must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
Eric Stoltz has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Eric limits himself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in himself enough or being assertive when necessary. Others find Eric Stoltz difficult to get to know intimately, as Stoltz tends to distance himself from them or to put forth a rather stern, "adult" face to the world.
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Eric Stoltz pursues his aims in a systematic, disciplined, and thorough manner, and he is willing to takes his time, advancing slowly and steadily on his way towards his goal.
Sometimes Eric Stoltz underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Eric Stoltz 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 Eric Stoltz needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Eric Stoltz's path lies in his development as an individual, the discovery of his own strengths and joys, the capacity to express his uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Stoltz's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Eric Stoltz is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, he may believe that striving to do his personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Eric should let go of this notion. Finding his own center and doing what gives him delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Eric Stoltz can offer the world at large.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Eric Stoltz has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Stoltz will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
The following are specific activities that will support Eric Stoltz in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Stoltz, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Eric Stoltz should be willing to become more of a free thinker, to experiment and change, to loosen his ties to tradition and the known and to allow for new developments. He needs to practice getting involved in an area involving new techniques, rapid changes and innovation. Eric can be part of the avant-garde promoting such changes - be it in science, music or social relationships. Eric Stoltz has to be willing to be different and perhaps to be considered eccentric or odd.
