challenges and difficulties
Archer either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Jeffrey Archer may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Jeffrey Archer feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
He is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with his duty, his public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Jeffrey Archer understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and he is capable of much self-discipline and patience once he sets his sights on a goal.
But Jeffrey Archer is very judgmental and hard on himself if he fails to attain success, and he can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize his efforts.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Jeffrey Archer will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Jeffrey feel a little out of step with others. Jeffrey Archer 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 Jeffrey feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Jeffrey Archer 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.
His attitude toward life is quite serious and he is very thorough. Jeffrey has the need to be by himself and think out everything very carefully before he takes action. Jeffrey Archer may enjoy doing some type of creative art work shaped from hard or heavy materials.
A deep thinker, Jeffrey Archer has good powers of concentration. But Archer thinks slowly and takes his time making decisions, which is likely to be based on practical and economical methods. Having little to say, Jeffrey Archer prefers to talk about serious or sad things.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jeffrey Archer 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 Jeffrey Archer needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively he is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Jeffrey stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Jeffrey Archer has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate him from others, or make Jeffrey Archer feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Jeffrey Archer calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Jeffrey Archer needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Archer's inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Jeffrey Archer needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Jeffrey Archer back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Jeffrey Archer tends to over-rely on luck or grace, living for tomorrow and gambling. Jeffrey is overconfident and tends to overextend himself and take on more than is humanly possible. Jeffrey is often dogmatic about his philosophy of life or religious beliefs.
Jeffrey Archer tends to feel sad a lot of times and may sympathize with people who are "in the same boat". He is likely to cling to old things and wants to pass on his traditions.
