challenges and difficulties
Lars Larson has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Lars is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Lars Larson 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 Larson's which may inhibit him a great deal. Lars Larson 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.
Lars Larson takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of his at work that he compromise his health. Lars can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Lars Larson is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Larson can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Lars Larson 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 Lars Larson 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, Lars stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Lars Larson 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 Lars Larson feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Lars Larson calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Lars Larson 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 Larson's inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Lars Larson needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Lars Larson back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The tendency for self-indulgence, laziness, and over-reliance on the generosity or affection of others, as well as making love relationships, social life and superficial pleasures more important than anything else in his life.
