Personality test – What do your Success Quotes say about you?

Your favourite success quote may just tell you what your sub- und unconscious settings are towards success, and therefore whether you will achieve it and how. Please read the quotes below and, staying completely true to yourself, choose the one you favour most. It will have something to reveal about you.

  1. “Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines practiced every day.” Jim Rohn
  2. “However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.” Stephen Hawking
  3. “Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.” Franklin D. Roosevelt

  5. All you need in life is ignorance and confidence, and then success is sure.” Mark Twain

Interpretations:

  1. You’re hardworking, ambitious and calculating, these are your major strengths. You strongly believe – and you’re most probably perfectly right – that any person can achieve anything they set their mind to by means of hard work and discipline.
  2. You believe in talent, and you most probably have a lot of it. You feel a great need to discover what’s unique about yourself – or already have – and you believe we should all build on that unique something that only we, each of us, possess in order to fulfil our meaning in the world.
  3. You’re both ambitious and creative, but also innovative and original, these are your major strengths. You seldom go by the rules, but you also have principles. An electrifying personality, bold and interesting, you get a lot of attention if you unchain yourself.
  4. Endurance, persistence and tenacity are your major strengths. You’re a fighter, and you can put up with quite a lot. One of your characteristics that might surprise even you is your great capacity for tolerance. You’re patient with people, and you understand them on a deep level.
  5. You may be an intellectual, since you sub- or unconsciously believe success – at least in the material world – is for the fool or the stupid. You may be spiritual, and you may have a sixth sense that allows you to feel the world at its deeper vibrations.

The last number of your Birth Year tells you the purpose of your life

They say the last number of your birth year is especially important. It favors one of the basic elements of Feng Shui that defines your destiny.

The five basic elements – Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water – tell us a lot about ourselves and the ultimate purpose of our individual lives. Astrologers think these elements have a strong influence on people’s character and the turns of their destinies. They determine the mental organization, habits and personal preferences.

What’s your birth year? The last number reveals something about you.

If the last number of the year is:

0 or 1, your element is Metal

2 or 3, your element is Water

4 or 5, your element is Wood

6 or 7, your element is Fire

8 or 9, your element is Earth

 

  1. METAL

You always help people and take care of your loved ones, but you never ask for help yourself. This kind of independent behavior makes your entourage respect you. You hate it whenever someone tries to nose in on your life or gives you unrequested advice.

Professionally, you’re ambitious and lucky in business. You desire and relish in a prosperous life. Paradoxically, even though you enjoy attention and the limelight, you also want to be left alone. It’s not a good idea for anyone to challenge you, because you’ll defeat them.

One of your weaknesses is a way too sharp sense of criticism, which can cause you trouble in relationship with other people. You ask too much of yourself and of your loved ones.

  1. WATER

You’re generally well-liked, and many would think you’re a nice person. You’re capable of using other people in very practical ways in order to reach your goals. You act with the fluidity of a river, making a mark on your surroundings with your inner strength and charming calm. You easily win people’s affection, which makes them willing to follow you.

You make people feel special by appreciating their unique talents, which is why you can work so well with people and do good business.

Your weakness is that you always try to make people like you, which may drive you to go to great lengths and even alter your personality. This can cause you to become indecisive, passive and depressed.

  1. WOOD

This is the symbol of growth and progress. As the time passes you become richer in experience and knowledge, and therefore more valuable like an old wine. Dynamic and active, you socialize easily, and you maintain a positive attitude toward life’s challenges.

Professionally, you’re a great organizer, and you can make plans on large scale. You’re capable of making good decisions because you care about the people you work with. People trust you. Your open mind and compassion make you an excellent friend and colleague.

You’re always looking for opportunities for growth and renewal. You understand and value people’s potential. You’re often overprotective towards your loved ones. To you, marriage and family matter greatly.

Your weakness is that you work excessively, but you’re still inclined to let others lead you. You need to become bolder, express yourself and show your worth.

  1. FIRE

This is the symbol of passion and action, fast movement, activity. You’re an enterprising person, adventurous, restless, competitive, strong. You like to laugh and look at life with optimism. Enthusiastic.

You may conquer many hearts thanks to your seductive and affectionate style. You live great passions.

Professionally, you possess leadership qualities, and you’re result-oriented. You’re impulsive and impatient.

People are attracted to you in a magnetic way, and you guide them through experiences that make their adrenaline surge. Your mind is always working, and you always have new ideas and intelligent solutions.

Your weakness is that you easily become stressed out, and you have low tolerance of frustration. You’re impatient, you want it all here and now, and you can easily fly in a rage if your needs aren’t met.

  1. EARTH

This is the symbol of stability, safety and trust. You’re a wise and patient person, perfectionist, prudent. A responsible character, you’re given to self-sacrifice in favor of other people.

In you people find great counsel and a haven because you have a serene perspective on things. Share your wisdom with others, and teach them to achieve the mental tranquility that you possess.

What leads you is logic, which reins over feelings in your case, and you plan your life in as much detail as possible. You don’t like surprises, and you desire full control over your destiny. Your calm and reserved demeanor make you attractive to the opposite sex.

Your weakness is that you don’t trust your intuition, and you question the possibility of making your dreams come true. You’re way too reliant on your logic, dependent on controlling all life situations, too afraid of the unknown and losing control. Try to get rid of the blockages in your mind.
