This week we are talking about Enneagram 3 - The Achievers and how they are motivated by their need to be or appear to be successful and avoid failure at all costs.
Once we figure out our type, it’s important to be self-aware of our actions and underlying motivations. Each personality type has a “healthy” and “unhealthy” side. By being aware of “unhealthy” tendencies we can grow into our healthy and best self.
The Achiever/Performer — here are some things to be aware of:
The sin of the 3 is deceit. Because 3’s believe that the only way to prove worth or to obtain love is by looking or being successful. This sin can cause them to put forward a fake image or to live inauthentically in order to win other people’s approval.
3’s can be social chameleons - changing their persona to meet the environment
3’s can suppress emotions and feelings in an effort to perpetuate the “I have it all together” persona and slow down their progress to the next goal.
The solution - Be aware and repeat this affirmation: I am worthy regardless of my accomplishments!
