Growth for a Three comes when they can fit into a setting without having to adjust their roles, actions or expressions to every group or setting that they may come across. Learning to be themselves in a group environment is hard on a three. Growth also comes when a Three no longer feels they must be validated by their own personal success. They play characters rather than being themselves.
Growth Areas for the Three:
Being more readily able to accept failure from others or themselves
Appearing to be more sensitive than what they come across as
Being more in touch with their own feelings
Worrying less about their personal image
Acknowledging the ways in which they have unintentionally deceived themselves or others
Finding value in themselves and not in their accomplishments
Appreciating the life that they have and already live
Being themselves rather than what the world expects or wants them to be
DEVELOP A NEW MINDSET:
You always pride yourself in being ambitious because you want to avoid being seen as lazy or unproductive.
What if you found more ways to be embrace being idle as a way to connect with the moment while still meeting all of your goals?
TAKING TIME FOR YOU:
Stop using self sabotaging behavior. It limits your happiness. As a Three, your fear of not providing enough or being what others need influences your behavior. However, don’t forget that true happiness correlates with showing yourself, entirely, to others. Just because you do well in the eyes of others does not mean they will automatically love you.
Take time for you by having scheduled breathing:
Create a reminder in your phone or calendar to stop to breathe
Visualize your stress
See the air you breathe in as calming and peaceful
See the air you breathe out as stress leaving your body
