challenges and difficulties
Valentino Rossi 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 Rossi knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Valentino Rossi may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Valentino 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.
Valentino Rossi has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life that colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Valentino limits himself at times by being too careful, shy or fearful, not believing in himself enough, or lacking the required assertiveness. Others find Valentino Rossi difficult to get to know intimately, as Rossi tends to distance himself from them or to outwardly adopt a rather stern, "adult" demeanor.
Valentino may find it difficult to express himself, thereby feeling inhibited and lonely at times. He tends to isolate himself from others and his relationships come across as strained. Conditions in Valentino Rossi's parental home may be oppressive and strained.
Valentino Rossi has a tendency to be overly critical of himself. He may be plagued by feelings of guilt about certain past events, leading to further self-doubt. Valentino must learn to handle his frustration, depression and discontent and try to overcome his lack of self-confidence.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Valentino Rossi 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 Valentino Rossi needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Valentino Rossi copes with stress. Valentino Rossi also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Valentino Rossi to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
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 Valentino Rossi 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. Valentino Rossi should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
The following are specific activities that will support Valentino Rossi in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Rossi, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Valentino Rossi should foster self-discipline and learn to handle responsibility. He may shoulder an inordinate amount of responsibility as well as burdens that sometimes limit Rossi's activities and opportunities in life. However, this is a maturing and ultimately empowering process. He is also likely to be offered positions of tremendous responsibility, whether Valentino really wants such jobs or not, usually because he has invested real effort and made some sort of substantial contribution.
There may be considerable obstacles in his path - more adversity than others seem to face - and Rossi's task is to learn to cope with pressure and persevere.
