Destiny Number 1

Your destiny is to become #1 at all you do in your life!

Destiny Number 1

Your task is to develop your true, authentic self and to become in leader in whatever field you find you’re the most passionate and skilled. You’re all about power. You want to be the best at everything you do. You expect very high standards of performance from yourself and, in turn, also expect the same from others, which can set you up for frustration and disappointment.

Your purpose is to take the lead and take initiative—the 1 Destiny number is not lack-luster or low-key! You’re meant to have courage, act independently on your unique and original ideas, be innovative, and take charge. All this while communicating and acting with clarity and compassion.

A 1 Destiny number sets you up for a lifetime of development of your sense of self (banish that sense of self-doubt), your willpower, and setting out with determination without allowing the naysayers or glitches along the road weigh you down or demolish your vision.

If your Destiny Number is 1, you are a hard worker, a passionate leader, and – at the same time – a creative and artistic soul. It’s not always a mix that people expect, but it’s the combination of your hard work and your creativity that make you likely to succeed in life.

Destiny number 1 is the path of the great pioneer, and you allow nothing to stand between yourself and your goals (which are generally pretty lofty). You are extremely driven, often working long hours or throwing a lot of extra effort into any project you deem worthy of your attention.

You’re a natural at working for yourself, which is why many number ones are drawn to entrepreneurial activities or freelance work. It’s the perfect combination of self-motivation and freedom from having a boss breathing down your neck.

You’re a very creative thinker, and great at the sort of lateral thinking that has other people smacking their foreheads and saying “why didn’t I think of that?” This makes you a phenomenal leader in all sorts of ventures. You march to the beat of your own drum, and are not afraid to boldly go where no other number has gone before.

These are all great positives! But, of course, no one is perfect – not even the most driven and self-assured people in the world. The negative side of number ones is that you can be very egotistical. You expect best from others and have difficulty asking people for help, or taking orders.

It can be a challenge for people with Destiny Number 1 to come to a satisfactory balance between their passionate desire for success, and their tendency towards being self-centered or arrogant. Having self-centered personality traits is not a very good way to make friends, and as we all know, making friends is one of the keys to success in life.

Your 1 Destiny number insists that even if you struggle with self confidence or hold yourself back from manifesting your full powers, you’re lined up for a destiny that demands that you embrace leadership. You need to demonstrate your originality and leadership and also teach it to others. The 1 Destiny number will demand that you develop yourself from a dependence to independence, individuation, and – ultimately – achievement and initiative.

1’s numerology tells you to pursue your own path as a pioneer, a leader, and a chooser of your own fate. You will find most fulfillment when pursuing something that interests you, at a pace you choose, with results that satisfy you. This goes for work, pleasure, even relationships.

It is important that you learn how to let this go at times, since it’s just not possible to live life like this one hundred percent of the time. There needs to be some give-and-take – maybe you can give up a bit of control in your work so that you can have free time to pursue your other interests, or maybe you can give up a bit of control in your relationship because you love your partner and want them to be happy.

Design your life so that your individualism is an asset, not a liability.
