challenges and difficulties
Ali 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. Muhammad Ali 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 Muhammad Ali feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
He is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with his duty, his public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Muhammad Ali 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.
But Muhammad Ali is very judgmental and hard on himself if he fails to attain success, and he can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize his efforts.
He is serious and sincere about his interests, does not accept superficial answers and is not easily placated. Muhammad wants his inspirations to become reality and he does not mind upsetting a few apple carts in the process. Muhammad Ali becomes impatient with others for being hesitant to implement new ideas and take action, and his occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Because of his inner reserve and basic shyness, Muhammad Ali appears to lack adaptability and is a bit inhibited in dealing with other people. His approach is somewhat serious and it is difficult for Muhammad to face the public.
Muhammad Ali has a sense of duty and responsibility, but may find it difficult to make up his mind and come to a decision. Ali is somewhat slow to act, and his need to be fully prepared inclines him to let good opportunities slip away at times.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Muhammad Ali 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 Muhammad Ali 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 Muhammad Ali copes with stress. Muhammad Ali 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 Muhammad Ali to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
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 Muhammad Ali 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. Muhammad Ali should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
He is a born leader and has the ability to persuade members of a group or association he belongs to. Ali always promotes the cultivation of good fellowship and teamwork, insuring success in any plans or joint undertakings he may pursue.
