challenges and difficulties
Dwight Yoakam has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Yoakam is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Dwight Yoakam takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
He is serious-minded and may have difficulty making light social conversation or participating in friendly, personal interchanges.
Dwight Yoakam tries to be strictly accurate and he is critical of people who exaggerate or talk on subjects they really know little about. Yoakam withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Dwight's silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Dwight Yoakam will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Dwight feel a little out of step with others. Dwight Yoakam 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 Dwight feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Dwight Yoakam has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to him, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Dwight Yoakam 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 Dwight Yoakam needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
He is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on his path, but when under stress Dwight Yoakam becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what he has, he is apt to ignore the subtle signals he receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Dwight Yoakam needs to learn the limits of his ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for him. Yoakam also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward his appetites and desires, as Dwight Yoakam tends to overindulge and/or deny himself excessively.
It is in his way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Dwight Yoakam is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Yoakam's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, he needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
The following are specific activities that will support Dwight Yoakam in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Yoakam, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Dwight Yoakam should foster self-discipline and learn to handle responsibility. He may shoulder an inordinate amount of responsibility as well as burdens that sometimes limit Yoakam's activities and opportunities in life. However, this is a maturing and ultimately empowering process. He is also likely to be offered positions of tremendous responsibility, whether Dwight really wants such jobs or not, usually because he has invested real effort and made some sort of substantial contribution.
There may be considerable obstacles in his path - more adversity than others seem to face - and Yoakam's task is to learn to cope with pressure and persevere.
