challenges and difficulties
Mike Pagliarulo has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Mike is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack the capacity for joy and play. Mike Pagliarulo 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 Pagliarulo's that may inhibit him a great deal. Mike Pagliarulo must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob him of the playful, imaginative side of life.
Mike Pagliarulo takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of himself at work that he compromises his health. Mike can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Mike Pagliarulo is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Pagliarulo can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
The side of Mike Pagliarulo that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with his urges for unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension as a result, and at times Mike finds it hard to relax. Mike Pagliarulo may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on himself, in an attempt to strictly control his "wild" impulses. Pagliarulo's task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in his life.
His physical vitality and mental energy tend to be somewhat low. For this reason Mike Pagliarulo should try to avoid any unnecessary emotional and physical stress and maintain good health habits in order to enhance his resistance to illness.
His emotional life is likely to be somewhat strained and he has a tendency toward pessimism. Mike Pagliarulo may not feel as close in his relationships to his loved ones as he would like to, and Mike may find it difficult to give and receive love.

The direction Mike Pagliarulo needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Mike Pagliarulo copes with stress. Mike Pagliarulo also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Mike Pagliarulo to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
