"The North Star - Stella Polaris - is a fixed point that can always be used to figure out which way you're headed. Explorers and mariners can depend on Polaris when there are no other landmarks in sight. The same relationship exists between you and your right life, the ultimate realization of your potential for happiness. I believe that a knowledge of that perfect life sits inside you just as the North Star sits in its unaltering spot. You may think you're utterly lost, but brush away the leaves, wait for the clouds to clear, and you'll see your destiny shining as brightly as ever - the fixed point in the constantly changing constellations of your life." (Martha Beck)
As the creator of Life Designs, Inc., Martha Beck has helped hundreds of clients find their own North Stars and figure out how to fulfill their potential and create joyful lives through her lectures, seminars, and one-on-one counseling. In this book she shares her step-by-step program that will guide you to fulfill your own potential.

I've been recommending this book (and getting started with Audible) to everyone-friends, clients, Facebook community, passersby.
The analytical insights on our inner life are fresh and coherent. I found myself saying, "Of course! I see it so clearly now!" The exercises are practical and have helped me shift obstacles in my thinking.
The choice of reader was wonderful-I enjoyed simply listening for the pleasant and kind voice.
It's hard to listen to her outright judgements of other people, including referring to a kid with downs as "retarded". There might be some okay information in here but I have a difficult time sifting through the vicious judgements spattered throughout to get to it. I guess some people are like that but I find the unkind language unnecessary not honest, and made me wince more than once during the listen. I'm gonna ask for a refund. I don't recommend this one.
