challenges and difficulties
Richard Gere 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 Gere knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Richard Gere may be something of a hypochondriac also. Richard 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. Richard Gere 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 Richard Gere 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.
He is a bit skeptical, somewhat irritable, and others may think of Richard Gere as quarrelsome or nagging. His nervousness seems to stem from his tendency to over-work himself, and Gere should try not to make more demands on others than they are able to handle.
He may feel hindered or oppressed by other people frequently and overcoming difficulties jointly with others could come suddenly. Richard Gere seems to be afraid of his own courage and may find it hard to express his desires.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Richard Gere 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 Richard Gere 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 Richard Gere - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Gere 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.
Richard Gere 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 Gere's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Richard Gere 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. Richard Gere 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 Richard Gere back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The tendency for self-indulgence, laziness, and over-reliance on the generosity or affection of others, as well as making love relationships, social life and superficial pleasures more important than anything else in his life.
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. Richard has a tendency to be a martyr.
He is highly emotional and tends to display his feelings in a theatrical way. Richard Gere seems to enjoy being somewhat eccentric and finds it difficult to adapt himself to others. Although he may seek emotional fulfillment, Richard does not do well in relationships and team work.
