challenges and difficulties
Isaac Asimov has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. He is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that he discourages himself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Asimov knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Isaac Asimov may be something of a hypochondriac also. Isaac must learn that he does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax his unnecessarily high or strict standards.
It may be difficult for Isaac Asimov 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.
Isaac 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, Isaac Asimov also needs to learn to relax and enjoy himself more.
Somewhat shy, Isaac finds it difficult to relate to people and tends to withdraw from others. Since it is hard for Isaac Asimov to establish relationships, he would rather be by himself. Isaac likes everything simple or plain and prefers a more humble and secluded life.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Isaac Asimov 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 Isaac Asimov 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 Isaac Asimov 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.
Isaac Asimov 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. Asimov also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward his appetites and desires, as Isaac Asimov tends to overindulge and/or deny himself excessively.
It is in his work and his relationships with co-workers, employers, and employees that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Integrating the qualities described above into Asimov's work and daily routine will lead to greater satisfaction, improved health, and personal growth.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Isaac Asimov back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being bound to past events and experiences because of his desire to belong, deep attachments to family and the familiar (even if they are neither nourishing nor helpful), the desire to nurture or be nurtured by others, and a strong resistance to cutting the umbilical cord.
The following are specific activities that will support Isaac Asimov in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Asimov, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
He needs to give and receive affection, love and pleasure (primarily with the qualities described previously). Isaac Asimov has to learn to respond to, appreciate and create beauty, art, harmonious surroundings and relationships. He needs to be aware of aesthetics and to do things in a gracious, pleasing manner. Isaac Asimov has to start enjoying life, nurturing friendships and cultivating his ability to love and to receive love.
He is gay and cheerful in the company of others and happy to be with them. Isaac Asimov is fond of telling jokes and is likely to entertain everyone. His relationships with others are inclined to be for a common purpose.
