challenges and difficulties
Antonio Gramsci 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 Gramsci knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Antonio Gramsci may be something of a hypochondriac also. Antonio 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.
Antonio Gramsci takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of his at work that he compromise his health. Antonio can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Antonio Gramsci is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Gramsci can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
His faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by much caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Antonio Gramsci has for his life are firmly held in check by his sense of reality. At times he may wish for more freedom, but Antonio also fears it and hang back. Antonio Gramsci may blame practical limitations or some external condition or the prevailing Authority for his own inhibitions.
Around others Gramsci is somewhat humble and shy and prefer to be by himself. Antonio Gramsci tends to limit his relationships with others and associates only with like-minded people. He is inclined to be cool and reserved even toward those he loves.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Antonio Gramsci 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 Antonio Gramsci needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Antonio Gramsci needs to take what he has learned (either through formal education or his own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Antonio's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Gramsci's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Antonio Gramsci to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Antonio Gramsci is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Antonio Gramsci needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
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 Antonio Gramsci 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. Antonio Gramsci should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
