challenges and difficulties
Andrew Keegan 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 Keegan knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Andrew Keegan may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Andrew 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.
It may be difficult for Andrew Keegan to play spontaneously or just let his hair down, for he tends to inhibit that side of his by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression he is making.
Andrew may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for he wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged and recognized as special in some way. Though he may indeed be outstanding, Andrew Keegan also needs to learn to relax and enjoy himself more.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Andrew Keegan 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 Andrew Keegan 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 Andrew Keegan copes with stress. Andrew Keegan 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 Andrew Keegan to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
The arena he is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Andrew Keegan should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials he feels he possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
The following are specific activities that will support Andrew Keegan in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Keegan, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Andrew Keegan should foster self-discipline and learn to handle responsibility. He may shoulder an inordinate amount of responsibility as well as burdens that sometimes limit Keegan'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 Andrew 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 Keegan's task is to learn to cope with pressure and persevere.
