challenges and difficulties
Dash either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Damon Dash may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Damon Dash feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
He is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with his duty, his public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Damon Dash understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and he is capable of much self-discipline and patience once he sets his sights on a goal.
But Damon Dash is very judgmental and hard on himself if he fails to attain success, and he can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize his efforts.
He prefers to work alone rather than with other people. Content on his own, Dash tends to become inhibited when he is with others, especially women. Damon Dash may feel that the effort required to be with others is too great and probably not even worth it.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Damon Dash 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 Damon Dash needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Damon Dash's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Dash's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Dash's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Dash's ideals is one way to do this.
When under stress he is likely to become overly focused on himself and his own little world.
Instead of "how will this benefit or hurt me?" Dash's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, Damon Dash needs to strike a balance between doing for himself and doing for others, by discovering how Dash's unique gifts can benefit others.
It is in his marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. He may see the qualities that he needs to develop more fully (described above) in his partner. It is important for Damon Dash to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Damon Dash has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
Damon has an inner need to share his experiences with others and he talks to his friends and acquaintances in a very open manner. Socially minded, Damon Dash likes to cultivate close relationships, especially with women.
