challenges and difficulties
Yannick Noah has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Yannick is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack the capacity for joy and play. Yannick Noah 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 Noah's that may inhibit him a great deal. Yannick Noah must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob him of the playful, imaginative side of life.
It may be difficult for Yannick Noah to play spontaneously or just let his hair down, for he tends to inhibit that side of his by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression he is making.
Yannick may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for he wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged and recognized as special in some way. Though he may indeed be outstanding, Yannick Noah also needs to learn to relax and enjoy himself more.
The side of Yannick Noah that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with his urges for unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension as a result, and at times Yannick finds it hard to relax. Yannick Noah may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on himself, in an attempt to strictly control his "wild" impulses. Noah's task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in his life.
Noah forges ahead diligently, but may have to work harder than others to gain recognition for his efforts. Reserved and shy, Yannick Noah tends to build a wall between himself and others and he seems to be more receptive to older and more mature people.
He is inclined to be somewhat withdrawn and has a hard time discussing important matters with his family and close relationships. As a serious and deep thinker, Yannick Noah would like to explain his views to others, but has a difficult time finding the right words.
Yannick tries to build his life on solid ground, but may find it difficult to move forward because he always tends to look back. This could result in feelings of inferiority and periodic depression.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Yannick Noah 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 Yannick Noah needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Yannick Noah copes with stress. Yannick Noah also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Yannick Noah to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
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 Yannick Noah between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Yannick Noah 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 Noah's task.
Yannick Noah seems to be a loner, rather serious and quiet. Perhaps he is burdened by family conditions that weigh him down. Yannick prefers to associate with older or more authoritative people and is happier in a subordinate position.
He is reserved and somewhat conservative in presenting his viewpoints to others and prefers a philosophical discussion to small talk. Yannick Noah is quite selective in his choice of subjects and only wants to study what is really of interest to him.
Yannick Noah often tends to feel sad and may sympathize with people who are "in the same boat". He is likely to cling to old things and wants to pass on his traditions.
