challenges and difficulties
Richie Sambora has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Richie is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Richie Sambora 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 Sambora's which may inhibit him a great deal. Richie Sambora 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.
It may be difficult for Richie Sambora to play spontaneously or just let his hair down, for he tends to inhibit that side of his by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression he is making.
Richie may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for he wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged, and recognized as special in some way. Though he may indeed be outstanding, Richie Sambora also needs to learn to relax and enjoy himself more.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Richie Sambora 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 Richie Sambora 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, Richie stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Richie Sambora 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 Richie Sambora feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Richie Sambora calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Richie Sambora 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 way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Richie Sambora is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Sambora's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, he needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
Sambora is able to achieve good cooperation with people, and others see him as a welcome comrade. Richie likes to work hand in hand with everyone and has an excellent sense of team-work.
