Your North Star

It’s a life purpose without which you’re lost in life. But, if you do have one, you’ll have a guiding light that keeps you firmly on track for fulfillment and success.

Having a North Star makes you passionate, energetic and goal-oriented in life

Following Your North Star

  1. You’ll develop the ability to overcome obstacles, as you’ll be fixated on your end goal and won’t allow small things to keep you from it.
  2. Switches you from a carefree attitude, that makes you drift through life, to a driven attitude, that leads you towards your destination.
  3. Having a greater goal compels you to break it into smaller and more manageable goals, making it more achievable.
  4. Research shows that having a life purpose increases confidence, energy levels, health and lifespan.

5 Tips To Find Your North Star

  1. Ignore and change self-limiting thoughts and behavioral patterns.
  2. Ask yourself what you love to do and how would you spend your time if money was no concern.
  3. Remember the dreams you abandoned and the things that brought you the most satisfaction when you were a child.
  4. Dwell on the above questions until you find the answers.
  5. You’ll instinctively know when your life purpose has been revealed to you. It will feel right to you, and it’ll also excite you to begin taking action.

“If you don’t change your beliefs, your life will be like this forever. Is that good news?” 

Challenging areas in your life

Consider how you’re doing in the following areas:

  • Finances. Are you feeling financial pressure in your life? Do you have all the things you need or really want? How much money do you have in savings? Do you have the income you desire? Is that income secure?
  • Relationships. Are your relationships satisfying? 
  • Health. Are you taking good care of yourself? 
  • Fun & Adventure. Are you doing the things you really want to do?
  • Any other aspect of your life in which you’re experiencing dissatisfaction. 

If you’re not pleased with your life, a limiting belief could be the cause.
