challenges and difficulties
Wiley Post has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Post is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Wiley Post takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
Post is generally not a "joiner" and he does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Wiley Post does participate in a group, he may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or he may simply feel that he does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Wiley Post better than being with groups of his own peers.
Wiley Post feels that he must work very hard and struggle against tremendous odds that impede his chances of fulfilling his life's ambitions. Wiley may adopt a very hard, cynical, or nihilistic attitude that will only drag him down further. There are major problems with his father or figures of authority. Wiley Post may fail simply to spite "them", without realizing that he is primarily hurting himself. If he can overcome his feelings of loneliness, bitterness or isolation, and direct his energies toward constructive endeavors, Post can be immensely effective because of his tremendous tenacity and potential for achievement.
He is inclined to be quite reserved and cautious in his relationships with others. But Wiley may also have an exaggerated regard for other peoples views and could give them more credence than they are worth.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Wiley Post 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 Wiley Post needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Wiley Post has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that he is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Wiley Post needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, he has a strong instinct to retreat back to the nest, to be a child again, or to become overwhelmed with feelings and longings to be taken care of. Also, he may encourage others to depend on him emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. Wiley Post needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is deep within himself, as Wiley Post faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Wiley Post 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.
