“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” -Henry David Thoreau
The life path number represents your major purpose in life, the activities that will bring you the most fulfillment and that you have a natural skill for. When choosing a career, this number is particularly important as it sheds light on your values and by flowing along with this number you are flowing with life's natural flow rather than against it.
We calculate a person’s life path using the month, date and year of birth. For example someone born on June 17th, 1980 would add 6 for June, (1+7), +1+9+8+0= 5. Therefore their life path is 5. You may want to take a moment at this time to calculate your life path and the life path of the important people around you so as you read on you can see how the vibration of the number of their life path manifests in their life.
Life path 1
With one as your life path, you are called to blaze new trails and make new discoveries. You have the ability to take risks that add vitality and joy to your life, and the lives of people around you. While you value your relationships, you are naturally independent and need to have a good amount of time to yourself. You are one who can easily feel smothered if others don’t give you a good amount of personal space because you cherish your freedom of thought and expression. Not afraid to go against the crowd, you will take a stand for what you believe in even if it is the unpopular opinion or course of action. This is not to say that you are always correct but you openly acknowledge that you have made your share of mistakes. What is admirable about you is that you are eager to learn from your failures.
You don’t have the need to please people and instinctively understand that being yourself is more important than changing who you are to get someone else to approve of you. Never one for “wanting to fit in”; as you grew older you developed your own personal style which was distinct.
In terms of careers, your talents can help you succeed in many professions but your number one priority is autonomy. If this need is not met, you will increasingly find yourself feeling restricted. Naturally authoritative, you are not one who appreciates being micro-managed. If there is a product or service you feel passionately about, starting your own business is ideal. This way, your leadership ability gets a chance to shine and your needs for creative self-expression and autonomy are met. Within an organization, and working within a hierarchy, you would need the freedom to achieve your objectives in your own way.
If your life path is one, are called to make breakthroughs by taking the road less travelled, remembering that it is never crowded along that extra mile.
I am walking along the extra mile with confidence I am exercising my creativity and originality everyday
