Chapter Two: Life Path Numbers 1, 2 and 3
In this chapter, we will provide you with the meanings and significance of the first three Life Path Numbers. If you’ve done the calculation exercise in the last chapter, by now you will have known what your life path number is. Your life path number will give you a clue as to what kind of person you are or what you may need to learn either from your past experiences or present experiences as it will guide you in creating the kind of life you want in alignment to your ‘true’ self. We will discuss life path numbers 1, 2 and 3 in this chapter. If your life path number is different, you can skip this part for now but it’s also best that you read it because you may find it useful especially when you are dealing with people who have these life path numbers.
Life Path Number 1: The Leader
If your life path number is one, then you are more a ‘leader’ type of person. The primary purpose of your life is to deal with your sense of confidence and creativity in anything you do. Here’s the thing though, since what we’re all here to do is usually the ‘hardest thing’ for us to do, you will experience consistent obstacles in two areas of your life which is
The life path number one is competitive by nature which means you thrive in a competitive kind of environment. The most important thing that leaders like you need to understand is that you must follow your own unique voice. As cliché as it may sound, you need to be the one to lead the pack or march the beat to a different drummer. You are the maestro that guides and leads the whole orchestra because you are creative and innovative, and you need to learn how to turn that into reality because YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE who can do it. You’re kind of like Steve Jobs; you are the driving force of innovation in whatever field you choose. Speaking of Jobs, did you know that he also have a one life path number? Well, that says a lot, isn’t it?
Your best and highest purpose is to clarify and communicate your unique idea, find the right people and resources to support your idea that can help you manifest your dreams, set it all up, delegate tasks, motivate and inspire people through your passion or with humor and just let it run with minimum supervision so that what you’ve built can one day run without you and you can move on to the next project or if this particular project is really your passion, you can focus on taking it to the next level. That’s the type of person you are supposed to be. Now, this might sound boring especially if you’ve done this a couple of times.
Let’s go back and use Steve Jobs again as an example. As you know he’s famously known for creating Apple Inc. which took computers and technology to the next level – something that the world has never seen. He placed the power of technology in people’s hands and into our pockets which paved the way for the kind of technology and the level of communication we are using today and in the future. He is indeed one of the most brilliant innovators in history and Time Magazine called him as “The Genius Who Changed the World.” However, as you may have also seen or heard through various documentaries, interviews and portrayal of him on films and on TV, he also had many struggles – difficult and demanding is an understatement if he was to be described according to his colleagues, business partners, family and friends yet he certainly embodies all the qualities of a one life path.
As a one life path number, you have to understand that life will constantly knock you down but that’s the key to the golden castle! One life path number individuals understand that this is just how it is for them. And just like other people who are in this category, all you need to do is to face the obstacle head on, embrace it, and understand that all of these challenges need to happen because it is how you’ll gain the knowledge, skill level, experience, fortitude, tenacity, discipline and commitment you need to act on the unique or perhaps world – changing ideas of yours.
You see, if everyone can do it, then what’s the point right? It’s kind of like becoming a boxer versus becoming a teacher; not that one is necessarily better than the other but the expectation of training you’ll have to undergo has a huge difference. In this case, you are the boxer. You have to understand and accept that you will have to get beaten up during training because that’s what going to make you a better boxer or in the one life path numbers case a leader.
Sometimes you are the one who’s ahead of your time as in the case of Steve Jobs; he already saw the future but the technology hasn’t catch up yet, or sometimes you’re the person who gets beaten down early in life and this could either be your motivation to make a change or it could also bring you down and make you give up your dreams – it’s a double edge sword, so to speak.
Here’s the thing about life path. Some people are pulled to the opposite direction than what their life purpose indicates for them. It’s kind of like Darth Vader; some people “sell their soul to the dark side” just so they can fulfill their destiny. It will appear to be the easy route but in the end you’ll end up unhappy and miserable because you’re not doing what the universe, God, or your higher being called you to do.
If you are a one life path, here are some keywords that may describe who you are:
- You are independent
- You value originality
- You are self – motivated
- You are a high – achiever
- You are very creative
- You are highly competitive
- You are action – oriented
