challenges and difficulties
Paul has difficulty asserting his will and desires directly and openly. He may also suppress his anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in himself are important tasks for Hogan.
It may be difficult for Paul Hogan to play spontaneously or just let his hair down, for he tends to inhibit that side of his by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression he is making.
Paul may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for he wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged, and recognized as special in some way. Though he may indeed be outstanding, Paul Hogan also needs to learn to relax and enjoy himself more.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Paul Hogan will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Paul feel a little out of step with others. Paul Hogan 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 Paul feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Paul Hogan 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.
Paul tries to build his life on solid ground, but may find it difficult to move forward, because he always tends to look back. This could result in feelings of inferiority and periodic moods of depression.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Paul Hogan 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 Paul Hogan 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, Paul stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Paul Hogan 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 Paul Hogan feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Paul Hogan calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Paul Hogan 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 any involvements he has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Paul Hogan is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above need to be channeled into some sort of group effort or experience, or have some impact on society at large.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Paul Hogan back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Paul Hogan'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. Paul Hogan should try to learn to relax and recognize that not everything is Hogan's responsibility.
The following are specific activities that will support Paul Hogan in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Hogan, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Paul Hogan has to learn to communicate and express himself through the written or spoken word. It is best for Paul to study, learn skills and develop his intellectual interests and capacities. Hogan needs to become involved in sharing and exchanging information with others and in developing his intellectual reasoning ability. Paul Hogan should practice using his mind, his thinking skills and his ability to be objective. "Work smarter, not harder" might be a motto for him.
Writing, teaching, recording, transcribing, dialoguing, negotiating, mediating, communicating, or facilitating clear communication are significant activities for Paul Hogan to pursue.
