challenges and difficulties
Jay Leno 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 Leno knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Jay Leno may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Jay 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.
Jay Leno takes his commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. His strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Leno a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but he often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between him and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Jay Leno and it may seem that he is always "working on" his marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Leno will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
He is inclined to preserve and build up his heritage. Others are attracted to him, but at the same time Jay Leno gives the impression of being unapproachable. Leno tends to hold back his feelings and is somewhat inhibited with others, especially in his love relationships.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jay Leno 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 Jay Leno needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Jay Leno - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Leno tends to look outside himself for approval or answers, and he leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge his own path through life is a key factor in his self-development.
Jay Leno is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about his intentions or desires, and he can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Leno's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Jay Leno needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Jay Leno between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Jay Leno seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Leno's task.
