What Does Life Path Number 3 Mean for My Personality? 🧠
Passion is your driving force and your heart is the master of your decisions. You wear your heart on your sleeve and others respect you for your enthusiasm and frank honesty.
You may burn bright but you also burn fast; be wary of your energy levels and learn to manage them, especially around others.
You are happy-go-lucky and prefer the decision that feels right rather than the one that others tell you is best.
Carpe diem (seize the day or ‘YOLO’ in today’s language) is your motto; you live for the present–sure, tomorrow will come but you can never know if you’ll be around tomorrow.
Others around you that appear too slow and directionless with their movements, decisions and thinking can frustrate you; you are impatient and prefer actions over words, as long as those actions happen quickly and efficiently.
You aren’t a loner but you enjoy spending doing some activities alone for the above reason. Shopping, travelling or just going out and about–sometimes you enjoy the freedom of opening your sails and letting the wind take you wherever you feel like going.
Being around others constantly can make you feel trapped and miserable, especially when they deny you the freedom to act and move about of your own accord.
This is why we recommend that Life Path Number 3s allocate sufficient free time dedicated only to themselves.
Have you ever travelled alone or thought about doing it? Solo travel is one of the best things you can do for yourself as an LPN3.
It opens up many opportunities for your to embrace your spontaneity and follow your heart’s desire, wherever it may take you.
What are the Negative Characteristics of Life Path Number 3? 😈
As the old Lazo Tazu saying going, “the flame that burns twice as bright burns half as long”.
That doesn’t mean that you’re going to live half as long as others who don’t burn as bright but it means that you are more susceptible to fatigue than others.
You need learn to be conservative with your energy levels.
If your energy levels are consistently too high around others whose levels are lower than yours then your energetic demeanor may lift their spirits but you also run the risk of irritating them.
The same is true for the opposite too–approaching someone with significantly lower energy levels than their own can make you come across as a downer.
However, being a Life Path Number 3, the latter problem will rarely be the case for you.
The other caveat of your higher-than-average energy levels is that you are more susceptible to fatigue than others.
If you frequently find yourself exhausted then you need to learn to manage your energy levels better or train yourself for greater endurance.
Anaerobic exercise is best for increasing your endurance. We won’t go into detail but study and practice HIT (high-intensity training) and your ‘battery’ will naturally increase.
The final downside of having LPN3 is that you are often easily frustrated by others who you perceive as being too slow to move, think or act.
If you don’t exercise tolerance around others who are naturally slower than you, they will perceive you as impatient and might be offended by what they believe is a lack of manners.
What Professions Suit Life Path Number 3? 👔
Your passion for your work radiates around you, inspiring and motivating your colleagues to match your high energy levels.
You’re not just the heart and soul of the party; the entire office is moved by your contagious charisma and drive, even on a Monday morning.
Be wary, however, that you’re actually uplifting others’ moods rather than just irritating them.
Assuming, that is, that you work in an office. Perhaps your unnatural energy levels have driven you far outside the box.
You might be a chef; working under intense pressure in a boiler room-like environment could be your calling. Good kitchen staff require both intense passion for their work, not to mention relentless energy.
You might be a teacher; kids are often too physically and mentally draining for most people to handle. For you, however, your natural high ebb and flow of energy levels makes it an ideal profession for you.
In fact, anything involving kids is a great choice for you. Thinking outside the box of teaching in a school, you could be a dance teacher or scout leader. OK, the latter isn’t a profession but it could be a great, fun way for you to spend your spare time.
If you’re certain kids aren’t your thing then you might consider other roles in the public sector.
Working in the emergency services could be fantastic for you. Police, fire brigade, paramedics–all of these require buckets of energy, a passion for helping people and a sense of humour.
Just like being a teacher though, you’ll need to be confident that you have a thick skin before considering any of these professions. The public can be challenging to deal with even when in dire need of help, and distressing situations don’t bring out the best in people.
What Does Life Path Number 3 Mean for My Career? 👔
You have a burning desire for success and draw others in with your high energy and radiant charisma.
You’re at your best when enjoying the company of others at your workplace, and others enjoying your company at the same time.
You’re at your worst when overwhelming levels of stress snuff out the flame that usually burns so brightly within you.
Motivation comes to you when you’re confident that the work you’re doing builds rapport with your colleagues and makes you feel valued.
In a work environment you are:
When you have the right combination of environment, colleagues you get on with and work you love, you are an unstoppable whirlwind of productivity.
However, remove any one of these elements and you will find yourself spiraling out of control sooner than you think.
