TIPS TO ACT ON YOUR SUCCESS BLOCKERS ACCORDING TO YOUR ENNEAGRAM PERSONALITY
Every type of personality has its own virtues and limitations. Now, this is not necessarily a bad thing, it just means that if you're not aware of these, they could deprive you of self-growth and achieving certain goals the way you would hope. These limitations are what we call "blind spots" or "success blockers".
Get to know what your blind spots are according to your personality type and some tips you can use to get the most out of your enneagram personality and begin working towards your success!

Accept and forgive the imperfection in yourself and others.
Take some time to practice a sport, to rest and have fun!
Observe how everyone else behaves in a more flexible way.

Wait until someone asks for advice or help before automatically doing it like you're used to...

Strive to be more generous with your time, information and energy.
Work on yourself and your way of expressing your ideas instead of just shutting out of a conversation when you're not agreeing with it.

Learn to channel your energy in a positive way: help, build, drive, instead of destroying, oppressing, and controlling.
Realize the impact (positive and negative) your energy has on everyone around you.
Remember that vulnerability and sensitivity is more powerful than repression and denial.
Use your vitality and energy to leave your footprint, a legacy others will be able to use.
Nine - The peacemaker
Set clear goals, structure yourself, don't lose time in the little things and finish what you start.
Learn to establish limits, say NO, be more assertive and less accommodating and flattering.
Dare yourself to confront and take small decisions. The more you avoid conflict, the more trouble you'll experience.
DO NOT postpone the decisions you can make. Your people and clients need answers and not just "good intentions".
Express and defend your goals and opinions in a direct and concrete way. Don't devalue them by telling jokes, and seriously commit to act on them.
