challenges and difficulties
Graf either overvalues or undervalues her possessions and assets. She can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Steffi Graf may deny herself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of her labors. She may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Steffi Graf feels that she does not have "enough" to make her feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) she has!
Graf is generally not a "joiner" and she does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Steffi Graf does participate in a group, she may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or she may simply feel that she does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Steffi Graf better than being with groups of her own peers.
She prefers to work alone rather than with other people. Content on her own, Graf tends to become inhibited when she is with others, especially women. Steffi Graf may feel that the effort required to be with others is too great and probably not even worth it.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Steffi Graf instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that she is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for her. The direction Steffi Graf needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Graf's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, she is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and she can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Steffi Graf has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. She should let her feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use her imagination and let her dreams emerge!
It is in any involvements she has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Steffi Graf is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above need to be channeled into some sort of group effort or experience, or have some impact on society at large.
