challenges and difficulties
Simon Cowell has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Simon is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Simon Cowell often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Cowell's which may inhibit him a great deal. Simon Cowell must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
Simon Cowell has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Simon limits himself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in himself enough or being assertive when necessary. Others find Simon Cowell difficult to get to know intimately, as Cowell tends to distance himself from them or to put forth a rather stern, "adult" face to the world.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Simon Cowell 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 Simon Cowell 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, Simon stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Simon Cowell 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 Simon Cowell feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Simon Cowell calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Simon Cowell 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 fostering a personal vision or philosophy of life, whether through religious or philosophical studies, education or the wisdom of distant lands or cultures that Simon Cowell is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Simon Cowell needs to cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to Cowell.
Simon has an inclination to gossip and spread stories or he could be the subject of gossip himself at times. His perception of partnership and family relationships tends to be somewhat unrealistic, and Simon Cowell may put up a good front and pretend to have a harmonious life.
