STRENGTH: The life purpose of the individuals on the Way of Resolve is to learn how to face any challenge or problem without backing down. To accomplish this task, those on this karmic path must develop the ability to set their resolve and make a commitment. These individuals are often multifaceted, and on the surface life seems to come easily to them. However, they tend to lack resolve and prefer to take the path of least resistance. Thus, they are known to leave their associates and intimates in the lurch, when push comes to shove. Moreover, as they often do not have the determination to see the job through to the end, the quality of their work may suffer, making it difficult for them to advance in their chosen career or profession. Those on this path often pay too much attention to what others think, preventing them from cultivating their own beliefs. Without a more fully developed value system, they may lack a sense of self. As those on this path learn to face challenges, they will come to understand what it is they themselves stand for.
