challenges and difficulties
Michael Bolton takes his personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort, and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing. He may feel that relationships in general require more of him than they are worth, and Michael enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Michael Bolton also fears entrapment in close relationships.
He is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with his duty, his public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Michael Bolton 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.

Michael Bolton takes his ideals and dreams very seriously and goes through periods of fervent dedication to a lofty ideal or vision. Michael has the ability to acquire true spiritual or imaginative insight, but he can also become so involved in his imaginative, idealistic pursuits that he looses perspective and develops feelings of alienation and isolation.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Michael Bolton 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 Michael Bolton needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Michael Bolton's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Bolton's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Bolton's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Bolton's ideals is one way to do this.
When under stress he is likely to become overly focused on himself and his own little world.
Instead of "how will this benefit or hurt me?" Bolton's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, Michael Bolton needs to strike a balance between doing for himself and doing for others, by discovering how Bolton's unique gifts can benefit others.
It is in his dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Michael Bolton needs to integrate in tangible ways: how he makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what he does with the resources he has. Michael Bolton should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
