challenges and difficulties
William 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 Smokey Robinson.
Smokey Robinson 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 Smokey Robinson 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 Smokey Robinson better than being with groups of his own peers.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Smokey Robinson will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make William feel a little out of step with others. Smokey Robinson 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 William feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Smokey Robinson 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 Smokey Robinson 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. Smokey Robinson 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 William occasionally.
His emotional life is likely to be somewhat strained and he has a tendency toward pessimism. Smokey Robinson may not feel as close in his relationships to his loved ones as he would like to be, and it could be difficult for William to give and receive love.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Smokey Robinson 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 Smokey Robinson 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, William stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Smokey Robinson 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 Smokey Robinson feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Smokey Robinson calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Smokey Robinson needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
The arena he is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Smokey Robinson should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials he feels he possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
Smokey Robinson has a very obliging manner and is always in search for new relationships. He is able to identify with people quite easily and probably will make many friends who can be of help to him.
William has an extremely magnetic personality along with strong sexual attraction. Smokey Robinson tends to put his heart and soul into his work and may prefer to work with partners of the opposite sex.
Smokey Robinson is able to achieve good cooperation with people, and others see him as a welcome comrade. William likes to work hand in hand with everyone and has an excellent sense of team-work.
