challenges and difficulties
Sunil Gavaskar 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 Gavaskar knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Sunil Gavaskar may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Sunil 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.
Gavaskar 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 Sunil Gavaskar 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 Sunil Gavaskar better than being with groups of his own peers.
He prefers to work alone rather than with others. Content on his own, Gavaskar tends to become inhibited when he is with others, especially women. Sunil Gavaskar may feel that the effort required to be with others is too great and probably not even worth it.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Sunil Gavaskar 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 Sunil Gavaskar 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 Sunil Gavaskar - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Gavaskar 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.
Sunil Gavaskar 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 Gavaskar's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Sunil Gavaskar 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 marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. He may see the qualities that he needs to develop more fully (described above) in his partner. It is important for Sunil Gavaskar to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Sunil Gavaskar has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
