Björn Borg 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 Borg.
Björn may be plagued by fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death. He strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for him.
On another level entirely, Björn Borg is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Borg wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.

Björn Borg needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve his aspirations. Borg will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Björn Borg will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Björn feel a little out of step with others. Björn Borg takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Björn feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him.

It is easy for Björn Borg to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Björn Borg needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Björn 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.
