challenges and difficulties
Edson do Nascimento 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. Pelé 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 Pelé feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague Pelé. He strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for him.
On another level entirely, Pelé is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Edson do Nascimento wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Pelé pursues his aims in a systematic, disciplined, and thorough manner, and he is willing to takes his time, advancing slowly and steadily on his way towards his goal.
Sometimes Pelé 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 Pelé 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 Pelé 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, Pelé stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Pelé 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 Pelé feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Pelé calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Pelé 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 his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Pelé between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Pelé seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Edson do Nascimento's task.
The following are specific activities that will support Pelé in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Edson do Nascimento, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Pelé should become a warrior and cultivate a positive, victorious, active approach to life and to any problems he faces. It is in Edson do Nascimento's best interest to act on his own behalf instead of stalling, waiting or hoping someone else will do it for him. Pelé needs to assert himself openly and courageously and not to be afraid to make mistakes or stumble; there are bound to be a few trial runs to any new initiative. Pelé needs to foster a healthy fighting spirit, pick himself up, and go! He also should learn to appreciate conflict and confrontation as a means to grow.
Pelé tends to feel inferior and his attitude in the presence of others could be a bit negative or weak. He is inclined to shy away from groups and would be a rather quiet and passive member of an organization or association.
