challenges and difficulties
He is very self-conscious and has a great need for ego-affirmation and praise. Expressing himself freely and openly is not easy for Bratman. Jordan Bratman tends to work hard at playing and "having fun", rather than being light-hearted and spontaneous. Developing self-love and self-acceptance regardless of his "performance" is an important task for Jordan.
He may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Jordan Bratman does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Jordan Bratman 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.
Jordan Bratman becomes tense and upset rather easily. He becomes irritated by the unwillingness of others to make changes. In his eagerness to see his inspirations materialize, Bratman is inclined to forego tact and diplomacy in favor of achieving his goals. His occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
His ambition and desire for power could be somewhat out of proportion and Bratman can be quite ruthless in dealing with obstacles and difficulties he may be faced with. Jordan Bratman must learn to control his temper and be willing to compromise.
At times circumstances seem to be pushing against Jordan, and he may have to withstand severe challenges. Jordan Bratman will probably have to work harder than others in order to succeed, turning him hard and cold hearted in his decisions because of it.
Jordan wants to go his own way and tends to withdraw into himself. He prefers to be alone and tends to cut himself off from other people. Jordan Bratman could be a bit too serious and conservative.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jordan Bratman 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 Jordan Bratman 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, Jordan stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Jordan Bratman 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 Jordan Bratman feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Jordan Bratman calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Jordan Bratman 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 his dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Jordan Bratman needs to integrate in tangible ways: how he makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what he does with the resources he has. Jordan Bratman should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
