challenges and difficulties
Rick Springfield has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. He is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that he discourages himself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Springfield knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Rick Springfield may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Rick must learn that he does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax his unnecessarily high or strict standards.
Rick Springfield takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of himself at work that he compromises his health. Rick can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Rick Springfield is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Springfield can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Rick Springfield 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 Springfield 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 Springfield - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Springfield 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 Springfield 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 Springfield'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 Springfield needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
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 Rick Springfield 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. Rick Springfield should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.

Escapism through fantasy, intoxicants, or passive, vicarious activities (television, movies, etc.), waiting for a miracle instead of taking constructive steps to help himself, aimlessness or an inability to make and keep commitments, and self deception regarding other people. Rick has a tendency to be a martyr.
