challenges and difficulties
Lisa Coleman has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Lisa is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but she may lack the capacity for joy and play. Lisa Coleman 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 Coleman's that may inhibit her a great deal. Lisa Coleman must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob her of the playful, imaginative side of life.
She is serious by nature, and may have difficulty making small talk or participating in friendly, personal exchanges.
Lisa Coleman tries to be strictly accurate and is critical of people who exaggerate or discuss subjects they really know little about. Coleman withholds her thoughts and opinions until she has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Lisa's silence discomforts others.
Her mental concentration is very good but her breadth of understanding may not be.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Lisa Coleman instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that she is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for her. The direction Lisa Coleman needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Her natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing her situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing her situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Lisa Coleman copes with stress. Lisa Coleman also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
Her development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Lisa Coleman to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in any involvements she has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Lisa Coleman is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above need to be channeled into some sort of group effort or experience, or have some impact on society at large.
The following are specific activities that will support Lisa Coleman in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Coleman, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.

Lisa Coleman has to learn to respond to, appreciate and create beauty, art, harmonious surroundings and relationships.
