If you really want to improve and transform yourself, the first step is to become aware of the weaknesses which may be holding you back and preventing your evolution. These include your preference for illusion, your hypersensitivity, your emotionalism, your lack of self-confidence, and your guilt.
Ed Halmagyi has a conflict between his desire for social and professional success and his need for a stable, secure domestic life. He is deeply committed to both ideas and does not always succeed in reconciling their schedules and demands on him. Sometimes it feels as though he will never be able to find a balance. However, no job promotion will really satisfy him if he has neglected his most intimate needs and desires. Although it sometimes seems easier to him to climb the rungs of the career ladder out there in the real world, if he merely sacrifices his domestic life, he is only trying to fool himself. He should accept the fact that his domestic life is the true basis and foundation of his development. All his career endeavors and success will be even more rewarding if they are supported by a safe, warm personal life.
Halmagyi obeys a drive to live and accomplish his purpose in an intense and immediate way. Whenever he encounters direct resistance, he might find himself beset by frustration. If the resistance lasts, he may eventually be overwhelmed by anxiety, nervous tension, and discouragement. In addition, he has the ability to focus his strength and leadership potential on problems which require immediate solutions. His lack of patience and persistence may spur problems.
Ed Halmagyi may become aware of a need to change his direction in life. This turning point in his attitude may occur as he reaches the age of 30. In the first part of his life, he will have undergone a period of evolution and ripening, which is a vital part of the process of change characterized by a fairly constant inner awareness and reexamination of his inner feeling of insecurity. To prepare himself for the influx of new energy and free himself from negative attitudes, he must confront as consciously as possible the challenges related to his lack of inner structure or his need for an identity. This psychological work could lead to a total reorganization of his life under the best possible conditions.
Ed Halmagyi has a good balance between his need for movement and his tendency to be sedentary. He is just as likely to adapt to situations which require outbursts of initiative as to those which demand patience and perseverance.
