challenges and difficulties
Robin 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. Robin Gibb may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Robin 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.
Gibb is generally not a "joiner" and he does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Robin Gibb does participate in a group, he may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or he may simply feel that he does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Robin Gibb better than being with groups of his own peers.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Robin 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 Robin 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 Robin 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.
Robin 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?".
Robin Gibb needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in his work and his relationships with co-workers, employers, and employees that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Integrating the qualities described above into Gibb's work and daily routine will lead to greater satisfaction, improved health, and personal growth.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Robin 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. Robin has a tendency to be a martyr.
Gibb is a good team worker and has the ability to lead others. His relationships and associations with others tend to be harmonious and cooperative. Robin Gibb may also have a very industrious family and he tends to be strongly attached to them.
