challenges and difficulties
Nixon either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Richard Nixon may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Richard Nixon feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Richard Nixon may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Richard may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and Richard Nixon may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his steps!
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Richard Nixon 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 Richard Nixon 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 Richard Nixon - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Nixon 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.
Richard Nixon 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 Nixon's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Richard Nixon needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
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 Richard Nixon to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Richard Nixon has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
