Threes have very big goals, and they are driven enough to meet them with success each time. These people love to challenge themselves, develop their skills, and motivate others to great achievement as well. People often look up to threes because they are visibly successful and inspiring. This can be a pitfall for threes, who may lose sight of what is truly valuable in life, becoming overly identified with others’ opinions of them, and overworking to maintain their ideal of success. Threes need to develop an internal sense of their own value, so that their work comes from a place of intrinsic passion.
Talk about high achievers: Sandra Day O’Connor became the first female Supreme Court justice in the United States.

With exclusive interviews and first-time access to the archives of Justice O’Connor, Evan Thomas tells her inspiring story.
The F.I.R.E. (Financial Independence, Retire Early) movement has grown popular, and is likely to appeal to driven Threes who see money as a type of fuel for accomplishing their goals. Grant Sabatier tells the story of waking up in 2010 with $2.26 in his bank account, and reaching a net worth of over $1.25 million just five years later. He achieved financial independence by age 30. Find out how.
