challenges and difficulties
Michael has difficulty asserting his will and desires directly and openly. He may also suppress his anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in himself are important tasks for Vartan.
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Michael Vartan works very hard to ensure that his assets are solid. He may be very conservative, even stingy, with his money because he is afraid there will not be enough. He may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Michael Vartan 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 Vartan 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 Michael Vartan - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Vartan 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.
Michael Vartan 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 Vartan's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Michael Vartan 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 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 Vartan 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 Vartan should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Michael Vartan back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The need to be first all of the time and demonstrate an aggressive or bossy attitude, impatience or irritability; an over-eagerness to use force or violence to gain advantage and the tendency to resort to fighting or using confrontation too quickly.
Going to extremes, willful rebelliousness and an instinctive anti-authoritarian attitude. Michael Vartan seeks constant (and often purposeless) movement or change, involvement with unreliable people, and individual freedom at any cost.
His nature is a bit restless and unpredictable and because of this, others may see Michael as somewhat unstable. Michael Vartan is inclined to involve himself with unusual enterprises and tends to become overly excited in the presence of other people.
