Ocean Finance has discovered which month of the year – and the exact date – offers the highest chances of success
Best day of the year to be born – and why it can make a huge difference to your life
Who knew that when you were born could impact how successful you are in the future?
Birthdays are a lot of fun. There’s cake, presents, sometimes a party and lots of celebrating all round.
But what does your birthday say about you?
According to Ocean Finance, there is one day of the year which they believe is the ‘best’ to be born on – and it may impact how successful you are when you grow up.
Their researchers surveyed 650 of the most successful people in the UK to learn more about what factors they have in common.
The study found that most of the UK’s top achievers were born in September.
This may be because they started school as some of the oldest in their year, compared to the August children who are always much younger on their first day.
The most successful people are born in September
The 12 month gap can have a huge difference in both physical and intellectual development.
Research also found that September 6 happens to be the most common birthday for those successful Brits surveyed.
Those born in February and November are considered to succeed the least, with just six per cent of the most successful people have birthdays in these months.
Then those with birthdays in December, July and April are at seven per cent, followed by August, June and January birthdays at eight percent, October at nine per cent, May at 10 per cent and March at 11 per cent.
Ocean Finance also discovered that those living in Greater London were the most successful at 23.3 per cent, compared to Scotland at 7.3 per cent and Northern Ireland at 1.2 per cent.
Most successful UK regions ranked:
- Greater London – 23.3%
- South East – 19.9%
- North West – 10.3%
- South West – 7.9%
- Scotland – 7.3%
- Yorkshire – 7%
- West Midlands – 6.8%
- Wales – 4.5%
- East Midlands – 4.2%
- East of England – 4%
- North East – 2.8%
- Northern Ireland – 1.2%
More specifically London produces the most successful Brits, and Glasgow comes not far behind in second-place.
Ocean Finance also researched which field – for example arts, science and politics – each city excelled at the most.
London topped the charts with acting, arts and literature, as well as music and comedy, highlighting the likes of Sam Smith, Eddie Redmayne and Emma Thompson.
Whereas, the north west has produced the most award winners in science and medicine.
And the south east saw a lot of success in sport, business and politics.
