challenges and difficulties
Howard 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 Hughes.
Howard Hughes takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of his at work that he compromise his health. Howard can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Howard Hughes is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Hughes can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
Howard has an inner conflict between idealism, hope, and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression by limitations and practical realities. Howard Hughes needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve his aspirations. Hughes will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
He is inclined to be rather serious and withdrawn. Feeling very uncomfortable in the presence of others, Howard Hughes shies away from social contacts and prefers to be by himself.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Howard Hughes 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 Howard Hughes needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Howard Hughes' 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 Hughes' instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Howard Hughes 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 Howard should let go of this notion. Finding his own center and doing what gives him delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Howard Hughes can offer the world at large.
It is deep within himself, as Howard Hughes faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Howard Hughes 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.
