challenges and difficulties
Louis doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Joe is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for him.
He may have vague but ever-present feelings of guilt and fear that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Joe Louis does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Joe Louis must learn to overcome his ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Joe Louis 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 Joe Louis needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Louis' deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and he can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Joe Louis has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. He should let his feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use his imagination and let his dreams emerge!
It is in fostering a personal vision or philosophy of life, whether through religious or philosophical studies, education or the wisdom of distant lands or cultures that Joe Louis is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Joe Louis needs to cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to Louis.
