challenges and difficulties
Shepard is wary of becoming emotionally dependent on others, and may distance himself or deny his needs for relationships of closeness and intimacy so that he will not be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, Dax Shepard may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for Dax.
He is serious by nature, and may have difficulty making small talk or participating in friendly, personal exchanges.
Dax Shepard tries to be strictly accurate and is critical of people who exaggerate or discuss subjects they really know little about. Shepard withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Dax's silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
Dax wants to go his own way and tends to withdraw into himself. He prefers to be alone and tends to cut himself off from other people. Dax Shepard may be a bit too serious and conservative.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Dax Shepard 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 Dax Shepard needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Dax Shepard to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Dax Shepard needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Dax 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 Shepard's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
It is in fostering a personal vision or philosophy of life, whether through religious or philosophical studies, education or the wisdom of distant lands or cultures that Dax Shepard is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Dax Shepard needs to cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to Shepard.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Dax Shepard back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Dax Shepard's rigid self-control overly restricts his ability to freely express himself or explore possibilities. He is excessively concerned with work, duty and security. He tends to be fearful, judgmental towards himself or others, and can feel alone and cut off from sources of nourishment outside himself. Dax Shepard should try to learn to relax and recognize that not everything is Shepard's responsibility.
