challenges and difficulties
Kyle Petty has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Kyle is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack the capacity for joy and play. Kyle Petty 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 Petty's that may inhibit him a great deal. Kyle Petty must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob him of the playful, imaginative side of life.
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Kyle Petty works very hard to ensure that his assets are solid. He may be very conservative, even stingy with his money because he is afraid there will not be enough. He may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
The side of Kyle Petty that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with his urges for unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension as a result, and at times Kyle finds it hard to relax. Kyle Petty may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on himself, in an attempt to strictly control his "wild" impulses. Petty's task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in his life.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Kyle Petty 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 Kyle Petty needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Kyle Petty copes with stress. Kyle Petty also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Kyle Petty to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
