challenges and difficulties
Rick has difficulty asserting his will and desires directly and openly. He may also suppress his anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in himself are important tasks for Salomon.
He may have vague but ever-present feelings of guilt and fear that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Rick Salomon does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Rick Salomon must learn to overcome his ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
He is inclined to be somewhat withdrawn and has a hard time discussing important matters with his family and close relationships. As a serious and deep thinker, Rick Salomon would like to explain his views to others, but has a difficult time finding the right words.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Rick Salomon 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 Rick Salomon needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Rick Salomon - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Salomon tends to look outside himself for approval or answers, and he leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge his own path through life is a key factor in his self-development.
Rick Salomon is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about his intentions or desires, and he can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Salomon's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Rick Salomon needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is deep within himself, as Rick Salomon faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Rick Salomon keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
