Find Your Compass Heading
Your Compass Heading is 3-4 words you live by—“Take a risk”, “Do the right thing”, “Play it safe”, “Seek agreement with others”, “Hard work pays off”, “Know for yourself”. The path you take and the results you create are dramatically influenced by your Compass Heading. Depending on what you choose, you can be launched forward in your life or held back.
For example, the Compass Heading “Take a risk” will consistently produce different results than the heading “Never risk anything”.Choose your Compass Heading carefully and honestly. It can either be a fantastic support or an impediment to achieving your entrepreneurial goals.So, if you find yourself bewildered about the results you are getting in your life, look closely at your Compass Heading.
Choose a heading that supports your North Star. Then begin the process of relating every thought and decision you make against this Compass Heading. You will soon find interesting things happening.
Things begin to line up and opportunities appear in your life, along with their companion adversities, and you are suddenly, quickly on the right road to making your life work in line with how you envision.
The good news is that, in the midst of all of life change, the one constant in your life is you. You are the one who is directly in the middle of your experience. As a matter of fact, you can’t escape it if you try, although there are many different techniques humans have come up with to try and avoid these experiences (self-medication with drugs and alcohol, distractive choices and actions, or almost any activity that is designed to keep you from being aware of what is happening to you right now—trying to keep you out of the game). In fact, drugs and other avoidance strategies are simply an attempt to control a more favorable effect in your life, as if by doing this you are saying, “If I’m going to be at the effect of something, I might as well choose the effect I am going to be!”
