challenges and difficulties
Jim Simpson has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Simpson is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Jim Simpson takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
Jim Simpson takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of himself at work that he compromises his health. Jim can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Jim Simpson is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Simpson 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 Jim Simpson 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 Simpson needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Jim Simpson to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Jim Simpson needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Jim directs his attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", he is apt to dabble, scatter his energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for his life and aligning his daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Simpson's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
It is in his marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. He may see the qualities that he needs to develop more fully (described above) in his partner. It is important for Jim Simpson to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Jim Simpson has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
Jim Simpson tends to associate with weak or negative people and is inclined to find most of his relationships rather unfulfilling. Feeling like an outsider, Simpson gets the impression that others try to restrain him.
