4 Challenge | A Struggle To Be Practical & Organized
Knowing your Challenge numbers and understanding their meaning can open a window of understanding during each phase of your Pinnacles.
To know what you’re up against is often half the battle of being able to fully embody your passionate purpose in life! Challenge numbers aren’t meant to be overcome—rather they indicate what you must become.
I view the Challenge numbers (particularly the 3rd or Main Challenge) as the KEYS TO YOUR CASTLE!
Why? Because most often, when the Challenge is mastered, it’s a vital yet mysterious missing link that becomes your best friend rather than your worst foe. Trust me on this.
The issue here is that when a number presents itself to you as a Challenge, it’s bombarding you with the destructive aspects of that number while simultaneously demanding that you operate in the constructive aspects of the number.
We can also see the Challenge numbers as indicative of certain weaknesses we have that we’re being asked to improve upon and turn into strengths.
The Challenge number by definition is confrontational. This number challenges you to overcome the opposing energies while becoming aligned with—and embodying—the constructive elements associated with a particular number.
The Challenge numbers indicate specific areas where there are shortcomings in your character.
I’m making the assumption that you know how to calculate the Challenges, or you wouldn’t be searching for information about the 4 Challenge!

When you’re met with a 4 Challenge, you’re meant to learn about the value of discipline, organization, practicality, hard work, and thrift.
Take this to heart: This isn’t an easy or breezy challenge. It’s full of restrictions and limitations that demand that you learn how to succeed and work within certain rules, expectations, and restrictions.
It’s also a time where you’re challenged with learning to set your own personal boundaries with others, while learning to temper impatience, stubbornness, narrow-mindedness, and self-righteousness.
With the 4 Challenge, you are being pulled to slow down, create a clear plan with obtainable goals, and then work tirelessly to achieve them. It demands that you focus on being held to a higher standard of responsibility and that you keep your feet on the ground and your head out of the clouds.
The 4 Challenge also suggests a difficulty with work. Either you’re challenged with not wanting to work much at all, not liking the work you are “forced” to do, or have problems completing tasks and working with efficiency.
You may also exhibit tendencies to be careless and lack a sense of practicality. With the 4, it’s difficult not only to focus on work and obligations, but equally as difficult even to see what the real issues surrounding work and obligations might be lodged. You might not feel that you lack responsibility or lack a solid work ethic. Yet oftentimes with the 4 Challenge. this issue shows up as over-focusing on something that just isn’t practical. You might feel you’re just unlucky. Or make excuses about it. That everyone gets a brak, but you never catch a break. You get the idea.
With a 4 Challenge, it’s vital to learn patience, understanding, and the practical and effective way to deal with what you might consider mundane responsibilities. You’ll most likely also be challenged to learn the importance of working within the parameters of a time schedule, creating a healthy and productive dally routine, showing up on time and when you say you will, and managing your downtime constructively.
This Challenge can also be a period of time where unhealthy family dynamics are at the forefront in some way, shape or form.
