Did you know that the motivation number is one of the most important numbers in numerology?


Well, let’s start from the beginning then… Have you ever stopped to think that everything around our life involves numbers?

When we are born we already have a date, a document, and an address. The hours, months, days, and years are numbers.

This is why numerology is important in our lives. It can tell us the energy of our personality, our love, and even our professional side. Want to know more?

The importance of knowing your Motivation number

You may have heard the saying: “In the company, you are just a NUMBER”.

Many people tend to say this in conversations, when they want to show that the relationship between employee and employer is superficial. That you are not important, and that you can be replaced at any time.

But are we really just numbers when we are in the professional market?

The truth is that not always. The question is, what is missing for your professional to cease to be?

How to calculate your motivation number?

Just add up all the digits of your birth date until you reduce it between a number between 1 and 9. Here is an example:

Suppose you were born on January 28, 1992. Then:

2 (day) + 8 (day) + 1 (month) + 1 + 9 + 9 + 2 (year) = 32 (add it up again!)

32 = 3+2 = 5

Therefore, 5 is your motivation number.

Attention: if you add the numbers and the result is 11, don’t add it up again, because 11 is a master number and has its own interpretation. If your number results in 10, add the digits, 10=1+0=1.
