challenges and difficulties
Brian Williams has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Brian is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack the capacity for joy and play. Brian Williams often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Williams' that may inhibit him a great deal. Brian Williams must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob him of the playful, imaginative side of life.
It may be difficult for Brian Williams 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.
Brian 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, Brian Williams also needs to learn to relax and enjoy himself more.
His ambition and desire for power may be somewhat out of proportion and Williams can be quite ruthless when faced with potential obstacles and difficulties. Brian Williams must learn to control his temper and be willing to compromise.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Brian Williams 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 Brian Williams needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively he is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Brian stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Brian Williams has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate him from others, or make Brian Williams feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Brian Williams calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Brian Williams needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in his way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Brian Williams is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Williams' relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, he needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
