On Sunday night, Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow threw for 316 yards, cinching a win in an overtime game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. In most cases, that would signal nothing more than an exciting ending to a close football game, but for Tebow 316 isn't just any old number. John 3:16 is the outspoken Christian's favorite bible verse, and it was the No. 1 Google search term after the January 8 game. So what does it all mean? Numerology can shed some light.

Numerology is the art of analyzing letters and numbers to determine order and reason in the universe. Each pattern that is analyzed is unique to an individual, and the outcome reveals what these numbers mean for that particular person.

## Repeating Numbers

People are often intrigued by the patterns of numbers in their lives. For Tim Tebow it's 316: His famed 31.6 yards per completion on Sunday night, and the TV rating on CBS for the game's fourth quarter peaked at, you guessed it, 31.6! But for you, it could be the numbers that appear repeatedly on the clock, at the cash register and on the treadmill display at the gym. Every single digit number has its own meaning, and how those numbers fit together offers insight into the big picture.

The study of Numerology suggests that when numbers repeat, it's like a cosmic signal -- the universe's way of directing your attention to a pressing matter or theme in your life that you may be missing, forcing you to pay attention to the issue at hand. But how do you know which numbers are meaningful, and to whom?

## Tebow's Challenge Numbers

Lets look at Tebow a little closer. When we use Numerology to look at his full birth name, Timothy Richard Tebow, and his birth date, August 14, 1987, we get a more in-depth look at what is really going on. Tebow has a Third Challenge number of 1. The Third Challenge number is often called the “Main Challenge Number” because it carries a lot of weight and will be felt throughout his life.

In Numerology a 1 is a very powerful and masculine number. Not so coincidentally, the reduction of 316 (3+1+6) equals 10, which reduces down to 1+0= 1. It's no surprise the numbers 316 manifest around him and drive him to stay true to his beliefs. This Challenge Number 1 is going to continue to put Tebow into situations where he is forced to stand up for himself and choose between what he feels is right versus what society wants or expects from him. He’s out to prove that he can be himself, that he can believe what he wants and that he will still come out on top.

Tebow’s 1 Challenge number is something he was born with and has been embracing his entire life. He’s actually comfortable tackling his nay-sayers. And upon study of his complete Numerology profile, it’s clear his journey is just underway.

## Numbers or Destiny?

Numerically, we start out with a predetermined order, but the path we choose to take is mutable. The key is listening to your hearts desires, paying attention to the order around you and manifesting outcomes. Tebow attracts these perceived “coincidences” because it is part of his journey. He seeks it out -- consciously or subconsciously.
