challenges and difficulties
Ray Kroc has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Ray is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Ray Kroc 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 Kroc's which may inhibit him a great deal. Ray Kroc must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
Ray Kroc has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Ray limits himself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in himself enough or being assertive when necessary. Others find Ray Kroc difficult to get to know intimately, as Kroc tends to distance himself from them or to put forth a rather stern, "adult" face to the world.
Ray Kroc tends to be his own worst enemy, demanding inhuman perfection of himself and harshly criticizing or persecuting himself when he does not measure up. Perhaps circumstances or relationships in his life have been extremely difficult and demanding, reinforcing Ray's belief that he must struggle alone.
He is capable of tremendous effort and of overcoming great odds and handicaps. Through these efforts Ray Kroc develops his power and inner strength. However, Ray Kroc should not make life harder than it is. He must give himself permission to let up sometimes, and to realize that he is only human.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ray Kroc 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 Ray Kroc 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, Ray stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Ray Kroc 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 Ray Kroc feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Ray Kroc calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Ray Kroc 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 public life and career that Ray Kroc is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact Kroc's reputation and standing in his community or professional circle, as well as how Ray Kroc achieves his important life goals and aspirations.
Ray Kroc has a strong desire to share his opinions with others and is inclined to seek out people who have the same ideas that he has. He may enjoy studying and developing his intellectual interests with them.
