challenges and difficulties
Maurice Gibb 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 Gibb knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Maurice Gibb may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. 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.
He is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with his duty, his public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Maurice Gibb understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and he is capable of much self-discipline and patience once he sets his sights on a goal.
But Maurice Gibb is very judgmental and hard on himself if he fails to attain success, and he can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize his efforts.
Maurice Gibb tends to be somewhat insecure and uncertain about his direction in life. Frequently plagued by doubt and fear, he is inclined to worry a lot. Because Gibb lacks the confidence to fight back, he may allow himself to become the victim of others.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Maurice Gibb 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 Gibb 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 Maurice Gibb - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Gibb 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.
Maurice Gibb 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 Gibb's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Maurice Gibb needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
The arena he is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Maurice Gibb should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials he feels he possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Maurice Gibb back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Escapism through fantasy, intoxicants, or passive, vicarious activities (television, movies, etc.), waiting for a miracle instead of taking constructive steps to help himself, aimlessness or an inability to make and keep commitments, and self deception regarding other people. Maurice has a tendency to be a martyr.
Because of rigid and somewhat unpleasant family relationships, Maurice Gibb is inclined to seclude himself from others. He may prefer to live in archaic surroundings and may be interested in antiques.
