He could have waltzed in, Life offered Trump leadership on a silver platter!
Many of you have emailed me with your concerns about the upcoming US election. I share those concerns with you, and so I thank you for prompting me to write about something that had in fact lost interest for me. Not the seriousness of the election, but its lengthy duration and drama. It’s been like a marathon which has exhausted itself. Quite frankly neither Trump nor Clinton inspire me as leaders.
Every country is facing the same scenario. It seems that true leaders are non existent. But there’s a far deeper reason for this. The political landscape has changed – big time! We are in transition from one Millennium Time Cycle to the next. We are sandwiched between past and future. The rules of engagement have changed. We are leaving behind the strongly assertive and individualised male authority and transitioning to a more cooperative, diplomatic and sensing style of leadership.
As you can begin to fathom, this is a total flip around, an enormous change! And guess what? Leaders and would be leaders are as much in the dark as most. Hence, the confusion and overwhelm. Today’s would be leaders continue doing what they know used to work, but they fail to see that it no longer works.
We have some would be leaders like Donald Trump, holding onto the strongly assertive leadership of the past, but lacking the ‘stand out’ qualities of courage, foresight and humble confidence. Then we have Hilary Clinton, who with all her credentials for the top job, has failed to inspire voters with hope and vision for a better America. Perhaps there’s good reason for this. Numerically speaking, and on a more subconscious level, she is still attempting to grasp the enormity of the task ahead of her.
Depending on your political view, you may choose Clinton or Trump because you truly believe that he or she is the better, hands down, or maybe you remain undecided. Either way, the destructive division this election has created is unprecedented. America is losing power from within. Yet in all this we must face reality, and the reality is that Americans must choose one candidate from the available two to lead them. But before they can do so, they must ask themselves the tough questions and come up with honest answers. As the world approaches the final chapter of the Mega Universal Time Cycle begun in 1945 and concluding in 2025, who is most capable of leading America through this very significant time in our world history, Trump or Clinton?
If America still considers herself to be the leader of the free world, then Americans need to ask and answer honestly for themselves the following questions-
- Who of the two candidates is better able to maintain peace in the face of war?
- Who is more experienced when dealing with other world leaders?
- Who better knows what is acceptable speech and what isn’t when speaking with other heads of state? Protocol must be maintained. After all America is a civilised country.
- Who can better negotiate America’s needs while at the same time not threaten those who don’t see things his/her way?
- Which of the two do you trust most to do the best with what’s available?
- Most importantly, who can better begin the healing process for America, her soul and her heart? Who is more capable of healing the wounds that divide her people? For this is surely the basis for a great nation.
The rules of engagement have changed. My, how they have changed! Part of this new political arena is that all parties must work together if they are to have any chance of governing their nation with prosperity in view.
Whether Clinton or Trump wins the election on the 8th November 2016, neither will truly win. Whoever is pronounced ‘winner’ will need to get the opposition on side, including minor parties and work together for the benefit of the country and the greater world. Circumstances will force the ‘winner’ to negotiate, to be flexible, to be bigger than their ego, to work with the team, to be an inclusive leader, a strong leader with heart. To be successful, they must ensure their ‘integrity compass’ is switched on at all times. Who can best do this – Trump or Clinton? This is the choice America is being asked to make.
I feel for you, for this is a decision requiring you to go beyond your fears. This is a decision which asks much from you, most of all that you choose the better of the two, Hilary Clinton or Donald Trump. You won’t get everything in one or the other, that’s for sure. But until you have that option in the future, you need to elect the one who can best keep America swimming, though the shoreline may still be far from view.
Don’t be fooled by those in the world resorting to force and violence and claiming to be winning, they’re not! Force will not win, but good diplomacy, persuasion and cooperation will win what force cannot. America, just like the rest of the world, needs a leader who stands for peace, who will lead and make strong decisions with peaceful outcomes in view for all concerned.
How their numbers stack-
He could have waltzed in, Life offered Trump leadership on a silver platter! His numbers have been well stacked, but there’s one major problem. He’s working his numbers in the negative. His numbers say, ‘stand steady, take the lead, make decisions, but above all understand and know that any decision you make, and the leadership you assume, must be done with reverence and in consideration of those involved. You cannot forge ahead without thinking about the outcome for those in your charge.
His Personal Year Number changed from the 1 to the 2 with his birthday in June. While the 1 was active, he was doing much better in the polls, he was neck and neck with Clinton, but when America’s PY number switched from 1 to 2 in July, alongside Trump’s, the requirements needed for success also changed. They went from assertive courage to strong diplomacy, tact, consideration and sensitivity. Yet, Trump ‘up sized’ to the negative element of this number, adopting its extreme, debasing and demeaning anyone in his path. While the 2 demands inclusion, he responded with the opposite – exclusion. Promising to shut out and build walls to keep out races he considered not good enough.
Hilary Clinton changes from an 8 PY to a 9 PY on the 26th October. At election time she will be in a 9 PY. Generally, this would reflect an ending rather than a beginning for her. Let’s not, however, dismiss her chances just yet. Let us remember that the 9 PY also brings rewards for past efforts. Has she done enough in the past to be rewarded with the presidency?
Frankly, if Trump had played his numbers right, he would have walked into the White House! He would have been America’s next President, for sure. But he hasn’t played his numbers right, he’s played them to the extreme of negative and in so doing has provided an excellent chapter of ‘in vivo’ research for me, and for this I must thank you Mr Trump! In addition, he has made Hilary Clinton’s path to the White House much easier. Through his negative response to the leadership Life was now offering him, he has impeded what was his and in so doing provided a grand opportunity for Clinton to succeed.
Election day is still a few weeks from now and we could see Trump do a 180, or even less. But will he? And if he does switch to working his numbers in the positive between now and the 8th November, will Americans forgive him in sufficient numbers to vote him the next US president?
I hope my numeric insights into this election have provided you the voter, and you the observer, with more clarity and less apprehension. When the best is unavailable, we must choose the better. May your choices reflect your love and not your fear.
