challenges and difficulties
Maurice 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 Ravel.
His childhood or his relationships with his parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Maurice from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Maurice Ravel felt deprived in some manner, whether or not he actually was deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of his needs and feelings may typify his early life, at least as Ravel remembers it. Forgiving his parents and/or letting go of any resentments he has about the limitations that he experienced early in his life is crucial. Also, Maurice Ravel needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Maurice accomplish this.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Maurice Ravel will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Maurice feel a little out of step with others. Maurice Ravel 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 Maurice feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Maurice Ravel 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.
He is inclined to feel inferior and may easily be taken in by others. Maurice has to guard against being deceived or used by others, though his intentions may be good. Maurice Ravel must not let his desire to have things cloud his ability to see what is really happening.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Maurice Ravel 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 Maurice Ravel needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Maurice Ravel - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Ravel tends to look outside himself for approval or answers, and he leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge his own path through life is a key factor in his self-development.
Maurice Ravel is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about his intentions or desires, and he can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Ravel's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Maurice Ravel needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in his work and his relationships with co-workers, employers, and employees that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Integrating the qualities described above into Ravel's work and daily routine will lead to greater satisfaction, improved health, and personal growth.
Maurice Ravel loves to show off the strength that he possesses and he has a strong desire to dominate others. Maurice seems to have an exuberant craving for recognition and importance and a need to influence and lead large groups of people.
