Numerology and Careers


Is it simply a coincidence that Steve Jobs became a high-level executive, a common career among "No. 1s?"

Chances are, you probably haven't considered numerology when it comes to your job search or career assessment. Even if you're a sceptic of  "New Age" ideas, you'll find that determining your personal number and discovering corresponding personality characteristics is interesting and fun, but you may also find it to be a valuable tool that can assist you in finding a job that will truly make you happy.

Put simply, numerology is the language of numbers and their corresponding symbolic significance. Each number has its own "vibratory" influence.

Based on the belief that a person comes into this life on a certain date with a certain name for specific spiritual reasons, the "numbers" from this incident are used to describe who a person is and their life map. All you need is the birth date of an individual to unlock the secrets of numbers.

Each number from one through nine has certain characteristics with strengths and weaknesses, adding an interesting aspect to career choice assessment and job satisfaction.

Let's examine Steve Jobs' numbers:

To calculate his birth path number, we do the following:

Steve Jobs birth date:

2/24/55

Add the numbers in the year together:

1 + 9 + 5 + 5 = 20

To the year number, add the month and day of birth:

20 + 2 + 24 = 46

Add the end result together to obtain a one-digit number:

4 + 6 = 10  then 1 + 0 = 1

This makes Steve Jobs a No. 1 birth path number. Think of his innovation, leadership and determination; all signs of a typical No. 1. A birth path No. 1 is an independent innovator who works best alone. No. 1's remain dignified and dutiful. They are business oriented and will work without any respite until they achieve great fame.  When someone displays positive No. 1 traits, they are capable of significant creative inspiration and possess the enthusiasm and drive to succeed. A No. 1 will welcome obstacles and challenges, as they achieve great pleasure from combining their strengths with a daring attitude. A No. 1's desire for independence is often apparent, and they can tire easily of routine.

Other No. 1's – Henry Ford, Dick Cheney, Tiger Woods, Maria Shriver, Sean Connery, George Lucas, Tom Hanks.

Traits based on your personal number

It's important to keep in mind that personal birth path numbers offer broad descriptions of personalities and personal attributes. To be sure, some may find their personal number doesn't seem to match; however, it will prompt some introspection, and you just might end up learning that the traits do match you!

 

A note about "master numbers:"

Master numbers, 11 and 22, are not reduced to a single number, and are treated as pure, lone numbers. Master numbers have a strong vibration and emphasis on great learning. These numbers possess more power than single numbers.

Using numerology to help navigate through life and business can help you achieve success and happiness and overcome obstacles. Numerology is easier to grasp when put into context of how the entire world revolves around numbers and mathematical equations. It stands to reason that the numbers we are born with play an integral role in determining our blueprint throughout our life journey.
