challenges and difficulties
Gates both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable with others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting himself be known in a deep way does not come easily to Bill, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Bill Gates is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Gates.
It may be difficult for Bill Gates 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.
Bill 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, Bill Gates also needs to learn to relax and enjoy himself more.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Bill Gates 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 Bill Gates needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Bill Gates to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Bill Gates needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Bill 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 Gates' larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
The arena he is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Bill Gates should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials he feels he possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
He is very social and his relationships with others are very warm and expansive. It is essential for Bill's emotional welfare to be surrounded by people and he is an active member of groups or associations he belongs to.
He is highly emotional and tends to display his feelings in a theatrical way. Bill Gates seems to enjoy being somewhat eccentric and finds it difficult to adapt himself to others. Although he may seek emotional fulfillment, Bill does not do well in relationships and team work.
