challenges and difficulties
Tony 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 Hawk.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Tony Hawk 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, Tony 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 Tony Hawk may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his step!
Tony Hawk tends to be his own worst enemy, demanding inhuman perfection of himself and harshly criticizing or persecuting himself when he does not measure up. Perhaps circumstances or relationships in his life have been extremely difficult and demanding, reinforcing Tony's belief that he must struggle alone.
He is capable of tremendous effort and of overcoming great odds and handicaps. Through these efforts Tony Hawk develops his power and inner strength. However, Tony Hawk should not make life harder than it is. He must give himself permission to let up sometimes, and to realize that he is only human.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Tony Hawk 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 Hawk 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 Tony Hawk - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Hawk 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.
Tony Hawk 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 Hawk's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Tony Hawk 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 fostering a personal vision or philosophy of life, whether through religious or philosophical studies, education or the wisdom of distant lands or cultures that Tony Hawk is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Tony Hawk needs to cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to Hawk.
The following are specific activities that will support Tony Hawk in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Hawk, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Tony Hawk should foster self-discipline and learn to handle responsibility. He may shoulder an inordinate amount of responsibility as well as burdens that sometimes limit Hawk's activities and opportunities in life. However, this is a maturing and ultimately empowering process. He is also likely to be offered positions of tremendous responsibility, whether Tony really wants such jobs or not, usually because he has invested real effort and made some sort of substantial contribution.
There may be considerable obstacles in his path - more adversity than others seem to face - and Hawk's task is to learn to cope with pressure and persevere.
