challenges and difficulties
JoŽl 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 Cantona.
JoŽl Cantona takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of himself at work that he compromises his health. JoŽl can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. JoŽl Cantona is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Cantona can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
He is likely to find it hard to make decisions, looking forward to the future with great enthusiasm on the one hand, but afraid of misjudgments on the other. Never quite sure about anything, JoŽl Cantona may periodically withdraw from situations and people.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which JoŽl Cantona 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 JoŽl Cantona 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 JoŽl Cantona - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Cantona 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.
JoŽl Cantona 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 Cantona's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
JoŽl Cantona 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 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 JoŽl Cantona to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. JoŽl Cantona has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
The specific habits which are likely to hold JoŽl Cantona back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being excessively egocentric or proud, needing personal recognition and applause, wanting to be center stage all the time, needing to be important and special.
He is very obliging in his interaction with other people and can easily relate to them. JoŽl Cantona is likely to have many friends and acquaintances who share the same ideas and viewpoints as he does.
