challenges and difficulties
Maurice Barrès has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. He is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that he discourages himself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Barrès knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Maurice Barrès may be something of a hypochondriac also. Maurice must learn that he does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax his unnecessarily high or strict standards.
His childhood or his relationships with his parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Maurice from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Maurice Barrès felt deprived in some manner, whether or not he actually was deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of his needs and feelings may typify his early life, at least as Barrès remembers it. Forgiving his parents and/or letting go of any resentments he has about the limitations that he experienced early in his life is crucial. Also, Maurice Barrès needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Maurice accomplish this.
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Maurice Barrès pursues his aims in a systematic, disciplined, and thorough manner, and he is willing to takes his time, advancing slowly and steadily on his way towards his goal.
Sometimes Maurice Barrès underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Maurice Barrès 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, Barrès 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.
When he is with others, Maurice Barrès often may suddenly become inhibited. He is inclined to be afraid of confrontations and probably will avoid group activities as much as possible.
Maurice Barrès tends to be somewhat insecure and uncertain about his direction of life. Frequently plagued by doubt and fear, he is inclined to worry a lot. Because Barrès lacks the confidence to fight back, he may allow himself to become the victim of other people.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Maurice Barrès 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 Maurice Barrès needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Maurice Barrès to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Maurice Barrès needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Maurice 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 Barrès' larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
It is in his work and his relationships with co-workers, employers, and employees that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Integrating the qualities described above into Barrès' work and daily routine will lead to greater satisfaction, improved health, and personal growth.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Maurice Barrès back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
