challenges and difficulties
He is very self-conscious and has a great need for ego-affirmation and praise. Expressing himself freely and openly is not easy for Agnew. Spiro Agnew tends to work hard at playing and "having fun", rather than being light-hearted and spontaneous. Developing self-love and self-acceptance regardless of his "performance" is an important task for Spiro.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Spiro Agnew may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Spiro may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and Spiro Agnew may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his steps!
Spiro Agnew seesaws between playing it safe, and doing something unique and original, between self-control and letting loose, between being a responsible adult and a rebellious adolescent, between what Spiro has to or should do and what his spontaneous impulses tell him to do. All of this creates enormous inner tension as well as friction with people in his environment. Spiro Agnew may, for instance, bitterly resent government or authority figures who "crush his individuality", yet ignore his obligations and responsibilities, thus ensuring that they will pursue him. Learning to give each side its due is an ongoing challenge for Agnew.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Spiro Agnew 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 Spiro Agnew needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Spiro Agnew to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Spiro Agnew needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Spiro directs his attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", he is apt to dabble, scatter his energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for his life and aligning his daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Agnew's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Spiro Agnew between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Spiro Agnew seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Agnew's task.
Spiro likes to be on the go constantly and tends to have a hectic family life. He knows how to eliminate competition, but should guard against rising to the top in his position at the expense of other people.
