challenges and difficulties
Warren Buffett has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Warren is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Warren Buffett often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Buffett's which may inhibit him a great deal. Warren Buffett must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Warren Buffett works very hard to ensure that his assets are solid. He may be very conservative, even stingy, with his money because he is afraid there will not be enough. He may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Warren Buffett 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 Warren Buffett 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 Warren Buffett - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Buffett 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.
Warren Buffett 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 Buffett's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Warren Buffett needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
The arena he is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Warren Buffett should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials he feels he possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Warren Buffett back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The tendency for self-indulgence, laziness, and over-reliance on the generosity or affection of others, as well as making love relationships, social life and superficial pleasures more important than anything else in his life.
He is very obliging in his interaction with other people and can easily relate to them. Warren Buffett is likely to have many friends and acquaintances who share the same ideas and viewpoints as he does.
