Nat King Cole
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 King Cole. Nat King Cole 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 Nat King.
Nat King Cole takes his commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. His strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes King Cole a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but he often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between him and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Nat King Cole and it may seem that he is always "working on" his marriage rather than enjoying it. However, King Cole will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Nat King Cole 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 Nat King Cole needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Nat King Cole to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Nat King Cole needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Nat King 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 King Cole's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
It is in his public life and career that Nat King Cole is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact King Cole's reputation and standing in his community or professional circle, as well as how Nat King Cole achieves his important life goals and aspirations.
His relationships with others may be rather unstable and unreliable. With a somewhat negative attitude and weak will, Nat King Cole avoids opposition and escapes his responsibilities. In his relationships he is likely to choose people who are asocial.
