Finding your true north

The definition of true north is to find or proceed on the correct course or in the right direction. A reference to finding the position of the North Pole (e.g., by compass or by locating a pole star) so as to navigate properly.

The reference however is more aligned to who you are and what your true north is.

Some experts say that your life story or origin story and the challenges within it become the true north for you. This is true for me. I was able to move from a victim mentality to ‘aha’, now I understand why this happened to me.

It is also important for you to know when you are moving away from your true north, how do you react? What happens in your life. I find I get angry.

And lastly, surround yourself with people you trust and have them give you feedback on it.

Top 3 tips

  1. Do you know your true north? If not, have you tried journalling your origin story?

  2. Work out indicators when you move away from it

  3. Have people around you give feedback.

Love and Regards
