challenges and difficulties
Lachey fears of becoming emotionally dependent upon others, and may distance himself or deny his needs for relationships of closeness and intimacy so that he will not be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, Nick Lachey may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for Nick.
Nick Lachey takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of his at work that he compromise his health. Nick can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Nick Lachey is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Lachey can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
His faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by much caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Nick Lachey has for his life are firmly held in check by his sense of reality. At times he may wish for more freedom, but Nick also fears it and hang back. Nick Lachey may blame practical limitations or some external condition or the prevailing Authority for his own inhibitions.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Nick Lachey will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Nick feel a little out of step with others. Nick Lachey takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Nick feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Nick Lachey has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to him, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
At times Nick Lachey struggles with nebulous worries and insecurities, fears which may be difficult to name. Mostly, he may be afraid of getting acquainted with the inner workings of his mind and soul, feeling uneasy with anything irrational or intangible. Nick Lachey has to work hard to overcome being overly serious regarding the spiritual side of life, especially if his religious upbringing emphasized guilt and retribution. Reorienting himself in the direction of spiritual optimism will do much to lift the cloud of worry that settles over Nick occasionally.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Nick Lachey 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 Nick Lachey needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Nick Lachey to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Nick Lachey needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Nick 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 Lachey's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
It is deep within himself, as Nick Lachey faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Nick Lachey keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Nick Lachey back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Nick Lachey's rigid self-control overly restricts his ability to freely express himself or explore possibilities. He is excessively concerned with work, duty and security. He tends to be fearful, judgmental towards himself or others, and can feel alone and cut off from sources of nourishment outside himself. Nick Lachey should try to learn to relax and recognize that not everything is Lachey's responsibility.
The following are specific activities that will support Nick Lachey in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Lachey, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
He needs to give and receive affection, love and pleasure (primarily with the qualities described previously). Nick Lachey has to learn to respond to, appreciate and create beauty, art, harmonious surroundings and relationships. He needs to be aware of aesthetics and to do things in a gracious, pleasing manner. Nick Lachey has to start enjoying life, nurturing friendships and cultivating his ability to love and to receive love.
