challenges and difficulties
Aristide Briand 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 Briand knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Aristide Briand may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Aristide 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.
His childhood or his relationship with his parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Aristide from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Aristide Briand feels that he was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether he actually was or not. His early life - at least as Briand remembers it - may have been marked by emotional separation or repression of his needs and feelings. Forgiving his parents and/or letting go of any resentments he has about the limitations that he experienced early in his life is crucial. Also, Aristide Briand needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Aristide accomplish this task.
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Aristide Briand pursues his aims in a systematic, disciplined and thorough manner, and he is willing to take his time, advancing slowly and steadily toward his goal.
Sometimes Aristide Briand underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Aristide Briand becomes tense and upset rather easily. He becomes irritated by the unwillingness of others to make changes. In his eagerness to see his inspirations materialize, Briand is inclined to forego tact and diplomacy in favor of achieving his goals. His occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Aristide Briand tends to be emotionally shy, sensitive and awkward and may have difficulty expressing his true feelings, even when his affection is real. One of Briand's parents may have been too strict and unloving, and as a result, Aristide may fear close relationships.
He is not afraid of hard work and leaves no stone unturned in the pursuit of his objectives. Aristide Briand has a strong desire to overcome any difficulties or obstacles in his way and will do this at all cost, even if it means having to use force.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Aristide Briand 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 Aristide Briand needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Aristide Briand to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Aristide Briand needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Aristide directs his attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", he is apt to dabble, scatter his energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for his life and aligning his daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Briand's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
It is in his work and his relationships with co-workers, employers, and employees that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Integrating the qualities described above into Briand's work and daily routine will lead to greater satisfaction, improved health, and personal growth.
He is very socially minded and it is easy for Aristide Briand to show his affection. His family or community probably provided fertile ground for his development. Briand may love to show off a little and he thrives on being involved with others in joyful group activities.
Aristide Briand seems to be a loner, rather serious and quiet. Perhaps he is burdened by family conditions that weigh him down. Aristide prefers to associate with older or more authoritative people and is happier in a subordinate position.
