Find Your North Star
Your North Star isn’t a goal, accomplishment or destination. Your North Star is the guiding principle you abide by for the goals, accomplishments and destinations you choose to pursue.It can be called your “words to live by” or “what you believe in”. It can be any of an infinite number of things: being of service to others, living a life with no regrets, being a risk-taker, being of influence to the lives of children, assisting those in need, being the best you can be, helping the elderly, connecting on a deep level with those around you, living peacefully in harmony with the planet, creating a green-friendly world—the list is endless.
There are many ways to take the path in the direction of your North Star. You can be of service to others in many different ways: feeding the homeless, tutoring high school kids, teaching those who can’t how to read, house-sitting for a friend, carpooling, blogging, contributing your time and money to a charity you support, or sharing a meal with a shut-in. All of these activities lead to the same North Star: being of service to others.
Finding your North Star is a wonderful thing. When you’ve chosen what your North Star is for you, it can serve as a stable life principle as you make choices for what you wish to do with your time.
