challenges and difficulties
Ted 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 Turner.
His childhood or his relationships with his parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Ted from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Ted Turner felt deprived in some manner, whether or not he actually was deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of his needs and feelings may typify his early life, at least as Turner remembers it. Forgiving his parents and/or letting go of any resentments he has about the limitations that he experienced early in his life is crucial. Also, Ted Turner needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Ted accomplish this.
Ted Turner tends to be very sensitive to his surroundings and is strongly influenced by the prevailing conditions around him. Ted may feels that he has more obligations than he can properly handle, and that it is hopeless to even try.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ted Turner 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 Ted Turner needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
He is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on his path, but when under stress Ted Turner becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what he has, he is apt to ignore the subtle signals he receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Ted Turner needs to learn the limits of his ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for him. Turner also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward his appetites and desires, as Ted Turner tends to overindulge and/or deny himself excessively.
It is in any involvements he has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Ted Turner 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.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Ted Turner back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Going to extremes, willful rebelliousness and an instinctive anti-authoritarian attitude. Ted Turner seeks constant (and often purposeless) movement or change, involvement with unreliable people, and individual freedom at any cost.
His conversations with others tend to be lively and productive but could also easily turn into arguments. The subject of Turner's discussions is likely to be about working on and incorporating educational matters.
