What is the definition of the perfect job? Is it a job that pays well and doesn’t challenge you at all? Or is it a position that helps you grow as an individual and find your passion in life? 

The truth is, one of the biggest features of the perfect job is its ability to make you tick!

Once you know where your passions lie, it becomes easier to filter through positions that might cause more stress than reward for your unique personality. You deserve a job that appreciates your challenges and what you bring to the table while it also helps you hone in on and expand your talents.

But how can we learn more about what we need from a job?

One of the easiest ways to learn more about yourself and what you crave from your career is by taking a look at your Life Path number. And, as a bonus, once you’ve learned how to calculate your Life Path number, you can help your friends and family learn more about their own unique personalities by calculating theirs! 

Seeking that perfect work-life balance can be hard, but numerology can help.

Astrology and numerology are two different systems that flow flawlessly with one another. Both numerology and astrology illuminate you and help you understand yourself more deeply.

Astrology emphasizes our mystical connection to the stars, while numerology focuses on the mystical connection between numbers and events.

You can also use the info gathered from your Life Path number in conjunction with traditional Western astrology along with your Chinese zodiac to learn even more about the careers that best suit your personality. Take note of the information that seems to overlap – you may be surprised by how well these three metaphysical areas correlate with one another.

Which Life Path is the Best for Career Success & Confidence?

Once you’ve calculated your Life Path number, you may be wondering whether it’s the best or not.

Here’s a secret: every Life Path number is the best for success and confidence because it relates to who you are as an individual. There is no one Life Path number that is inherently more successful than any other – it’s all about making your Life Path number work for you.

When you know yourself inside and out, you learn how to work with your unique energy to attract the most success and happiness from a certain position or career. When you embrace your individuality, skills, and talents, it becomes easier to filter through your options and choose the career that helps you grow the most as an individual.

There are no Life Path numbers that are cursed, or that lack the potential for true success. 

Discovering your Life Path number encourages you to follow your heart, to follow your bliss. Once you embrace your personality and gifts, you’ll find it much easier to choose positions based on passion rather than necessity.
