challenges and difficulties
Martin doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Tony is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for him.
He is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with his duty, his public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Tony Martin understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and he is capable of much self-discipline and patience once he sets his sights on a goal.
But Tony Martin is very judgmental and hard on himself if he fails to attain success, and he can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize his efforts.
He is inclined to be rather serious and withdrawn. As he feels very uncomfortable in the presence of others, Tony Martin shies away from social contacts and prefers to be by himself.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Tony Martin 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 Martin needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Martin's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and he can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Tony Martin has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. He should let his feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use his imagination and let his dreams emerge!
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 Tony Martin to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Tony Martin has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
He may have an inner fear of separation and could feel left out or ignored at times. Either Tony Martin did not receive much affection while he was growing up or it had to be shared with others. Tony may find it difficult to show his love in his relationships.
