challenges and difficulties
Cole either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Michael Cole may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Michael Cole feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
Michael Cole takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of himself at work that he compromises his health. Michael can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Michael Cole is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Cole can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Michael Cole pursues his aims in a systematic, disciplined and thorough manner, and he is willing to take his time, advancing slowly and steadily toward his goal.
Sometimes Michael Cole underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Michael Cole 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 Cole 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, Michael stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Michael Cole 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 Michael Cole feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Michael Cole calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Michael Cole 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 any involvements he has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Michael Cole 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.
