challenges and difficulties
Dungy both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable to others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting them get to know him intimately does not come easily to Tony, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Tony Dungy is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Dungy.
Dungy 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 Tony Dungy 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 Tony Dungy better than being with groups of his own peers.
Somewhat shy, Tony finds it difficult to relate to people and tends to withdraw from others. Since it is hard for Tony Dungy to establish relationships, he would rather be by himself. Tony prefers everything to be simple or plain and prefers a more humble and secluded life.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Tony Dungy 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 Tony Dungy needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Tony Dungy to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Tony Dungy needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Tony 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 Dungy'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 Tony Dungy between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Tony Dungy 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 Dungy's task.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Tony Dungy back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being bound to past events and experiences because of his desire to belong, deep attachments to family and the familiar (even if they are neither nourishing nor helpful), the desire to nurture or be nurtured by others, and a strong resistance to cutting the umbilical cord.
