challenges and difficulties
Jim has difficulty asserting his will and desires directly and openly. He may also suppress his anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in himself are important tasks for Bakker.
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Jim Bakker works very hard to ensure that his assets are solid. He may be very conservative, even stingy, with his money because he is afraid there will not be enough. He may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
At times Jim Bakker struggles with nebulous worries and insecurities, fears which may be difficult to name. Mostly, he may be afraid of getting acquainted with the inner workings of his mind and soul, feeling uneasy with anything irrational or intangible. Jim Bakker has to work hard to overcome being overly serious regarding the spiritual side of life, especially if his religious upbringing emphasized guilt and retribution. Reorienting himself in the direction of spiritual optimism will do much to lift the cloud of worry that settles over Jim occasionally.
He is subject to rash decisions and impulsive actions that may have sudden, unexpected consequences and undesirable results. Not very adaptable, Jim Bakker could have considerable tension in his relationships and is likely to have disputes or even violent fights with others.
Jim Bakker has a desire to break away from tradition and to free himself from restricting conditions. Somewhat inflexible and rigid, he may suddenly become inhibited before he initiates his objectives, which could work out to Bakker's disadvantage.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jim Bakker 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 Jim Bakker 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, Jim stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Jim Bakker 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 Jim Bakker feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Jim Bakker calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Jim Bakker 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 relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Jim Bakker has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Bakker will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Jim Bakker back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Jim Bakker'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. Jim Bakker should try to learn to relax and recognize that not everything is Bakker's responsibility.
He is gay and cheerful in the company of others and happy to be with them. Jim Bakker is fond of telling jokes and is likely to entertain everyone. His relationships with others are inclined to be for a common purpose.
