Have you ever wondered why some businesses make it and others fail? You may be thinking that success has everything to do with the leadership and the product and services that the company has to offer. There are plenty of companies that had great products that are no longer around. What if you could predict whether a company would succeed or fail? Well the good news is that you can. The tool that you will be using is Numerology.
Numerology is a science based system of numbers thousands of years old. It is scientific because the numbers have a predictable and repeatable pattern. The characteristics of each number remains constant. This consistency helps you to predict whether a certain number of letters added together will be successful. There are 6 different parameters that can be analyzed to get a total picture of a company. You will quickly see what makes your company tick, the first impression that people will have of your company, the strengths or talents of your company, what lessons must be learned to increase success, challenge areas to watch out for, and finally how your company will fare when faced with challenges. You can know all of this before you even open the doors of your company to the public. Based on the information that you find out about your company, you may decide to delay the opening or change the company name altogether.
First, we need to learn how to apply the numbers to letters. All of the letters A – Z have a corresponding number. The letter A=1, the letter B=2, the letter C=3, and so on until you get to the letter Z. An important point is that all numbers must be reduced to a single digit 1 through 9. What follows is an easy reference for you:
1: A, J, S
2: B, K, T
3: C, L, U
4: D, M, V
5: E, N, W
6: F, O, X
7: G, P, Y
8: H, Q, Z
9: I, R
Let’s look at a quick example of how to calculate The Motivation Number. We will use the company Service Merchandise for this calculation. The way to calculate The Motivation Number is to add all of the vowels together. In Service Merchandise you would take E+I+E+E+A+I+E which numerically is 5+9+5+5+1+9+5= 39. You would then add 3+9= 12 and finally 1+2= 3. The Motivation Number for Service Merchandise is 3. What this number tells us specifically about Service Merchandise is that the desire of this company is to be creative. All decisions are based on the foundation of creativity. Success comes when things are done on a large-scale as evidenced when Service Merchandise began its expansion in 1971. The Zimmermans took the catalog showroom idea coupled with their creativity and turned it into the most successful example of that business model. At the peak, Service Merchandise had over 4 billion dollars in annual sales. The 3 business does well when living its dream on a grand scale as evidenced when Service Merchandise had over 400 stores in 37 states. In addition, a few more main characteristics of the number 3 are dreams, creativity, communication, kindness, appreciation, inspiration, and imagination. When the dream is manifested at a grand level the company can be successful.
To ensure success all numbers need to be calculated and evaluated. The more harmonious the various numbers in each category are the more chance of success the company has. By selecting a company name based on sound scientific and numeric evaluation will help increase your chance for success with your new venture. Go ahead and put your numbers to work for you.
