challenges and difficulties
Flavor Flav has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Flavor Flav is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Flavor Flav 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 William Drayton's which may inhibit him a great deal. Flavor Flav must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
Flavor Flav takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of his at work that he compromise his health. Flavor Flav can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Flavor Flav is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
William Drayton can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Flavor Flav 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 Flavor Flav 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, Flavor Flav stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Flavor Flav 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 Flavor Flav feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Flavor Flav calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Flavor Flav 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 trying to strike a balance between William Drayton's inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Flavor Flav needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Flavor Flav back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Excessive thinking, rationalizing or talking, the overuse or misuse of William Drayton's intellectual abilities and the tendency to allow his energy to be dissipated in trivial activities.
