Wiring 3 switches, 3 lights, receptacle
 
I am installing 3 lights with 3 switches and a receptacle on 1 circuit. I ran power to the 1st switch, 3 wire to the light fixture, 2 wire from the light to the receptacle. 2 wire from the receptacle to the 2nd switch. 2 wire from the next switch to the light fixture. How do I run power to the 3rd switch and light fixture? Can I run wire from the 2 nd switch to the 3 rd? 2 or 3 wire? Any help would be appreciated.

The easiest way to wire this up is take the hot from the breaker to the first switch, then another hot from that switch to the next switch and so on.

Two wire from the second switch to the third switch will work.
