### Heard of the Achievement Number?

No?

Well if you’re even a teeny bit interested in numerology, then it’s about time you did.

This little known corner of your numerology chart is often overlooked, yet it contains information that can lead you to greater heights than any other.

This is because the Achievement number serves as a special kind of guiding light in YOUR life.

It’s a number that holds your potential, yet because it features here in your chart, you are likely operating in its shadow.

This is a really important thing to understand.

When we are operating from shadow, our personal behavior is very often automatic, unconscious and reactive. We’re holding a vibration without really being aware of it.

And you know what that means?

It means you are attracting things into your life unconsciously.

So no matter how much manifestational work or LOA you try to do, your success will be limited, because your unconscious wins, every time.

### Hello, achievement number.

You hold the vibration of the achievement number within, yet you are probably resisting it, OR clinging to it to the extreme. So your challenge is to “achieve” mastery through its particular vibration. THIS is what will truly bring you greater manifestational abilities. This is why in numerology, this number is also known as the prosperity number.

The achievement number is also important because it’s used in some of the more advanced numerical calculations in your chart. Particularly those that involve personal years and cycles. But we can come to that later… For now, let’s dive into…

# How To Calculate Your Achievement Number

To calculate your Achievement Number, simply follow the formula below:

**Note: Achievement Numbers reflect the standard 9 numbers used in Numerology (1-9), the Master Numbers (11, 22 and 33), and the Karmic Numbers (13, 14, 16 and 19).

### Steps To Calculating Your Achievement Number:

1. Start by writing down the number of your day of birth.
2. Then, write the number of your month of birth.
3. Now we add them together. If the sum of your birth month and birthday is between 1-9, you have found your Achievement Number
4. If the sum of your birth month and birth-date is a double-digit number, continue to add the digits until you arrive at a single-digit number between 1 and 9, unless the resulting number is a Master Number (11, 22, or 33), or one of the Karmic Numbers (13, 14, 16, or 19).

## The Achievement numbers

### ACHIEVEMENT NUMBER 1

The number 1 here suggests a self-directed, innovative and individualistic person.

Control your ego at all times since it tends to take you away to fantasy and impractical ideas which can only lead to tragedy and despair. When you are connected with others, you will be grounded in reality, which will help keep your ego in check.

Listen to your heart.

### ACHIEVEMENT NUMBER 3

The focus of this number is its creative expression. You are likely funny, charming and have an abundance of friends vying for your attention. But do they know the real you?

Obstacles:

People-pleasing and playing to the crowd can stand in the way of this numerology’s truth.

Attaining actualization:

Your main hurdle in life will be cultivating consistency and follow-through.

You love to do things by the book, and it is ok as long as you don’t try to control others. You will attain greater heights if you learn to lead by example and harness your natural talents.

Leading by example, makes you more attractive to others. Not everyone is as disciplined as you, so people will find you worth emulating. Make a difference by being an example instead of directly controlling others. Plus, take care of your health and never forget self-care. It would be best if you were fit for your work-filled days.

### ACHIEVEMENT NUMBER 5

Five is considered to be the most flexible and adaptable of numbers.

Many times, you will find yourself with martyr-like tendencies so keep yourself in check.

Another side to your personality is your extremely high standards. Although you may keep it covert, you have a perfectionist streak! This trait makes life harder for you than it needs to be.

Attaining actualization:

The highest goal of this numerology is to unify the material with a more spiritual outlook.

This can be a challenge, but as you go through your life’s path, you will realize that the only thing you can only truly control are yourself and your attitudes. If you use this control to live in harmony with the world, little can go wrong.

Your experience with people and organizations will lead you to better skills and wisdom. You don’t need much self-isolation since you can integrate well with others. If you listen and respect others in a non-judgmental way, it can lead you to achieve your goals in life.

Be careful of following a purely materialistic path. It will lead to frustration, arrogance, combativeness. These energies keep prosperity out of reach. If you follow a purely free-spirited path, it won’t lead you to your goals either.

You will achieve real success by being a support system with others based on compassion, empathy, and mutual benefits.

The number 9 is the last number in the cycle and being the last mean some sacrifice is expected from you. You may need to release things, people and ideas to fulfill your goals.

Another important lesson you must learn is achieving emotional balance.

Give to others without expecting any kind of recognition in return. As you give, don’t forget to take care of your well-being at all times.

This self-awareness will attract all sorts of opportunities for you that will have long term rewards. Ultimately you will garner the success you deserve.

You must know that people do benefit from your ideas and being in close contact with you. However, if people feel that you are flattered of being appreciated, they may try to use this vulnerability of yours for their ends.
