Some Reflection on “Finding Your Own North Star” by Martha Beck

I just started reading the book “Finding Your Own North Star claiming the life you were meant to live” and from the few pages this book is resonating with me.  We each have two selves inside us which are the essential self and the social self.  The essential self is the intricate compasses that “continuously point toward your North Star”.  The social self is the “set of skills that actually carry toward this goal”.  For example, your essential self want passionately to become an engineer, your social self will struggle through calculus and physics.  You will achieve success in your life when your essential self and social self are in alignment.  You will be amazed how your body, mind and soul are affected when your inner selves are out of alignment.  Have you ever found yourself sabotaging your job by being late, daydreaming, and countless other ways?  This is a perfect example of our essential self speaking to us and we continue to ignore it.

When I was a student as early as junior high school all of my teachers recognized that I was excellent in mathematics and science.  The profession that all of them recommended was engineering.  My social self listened to them and went on to earn my B.S. in Electrical Engineering.  I have had my degree for over seventeen years and I have never worked in a job as an engineer.  I did not listen to my essential self because I just listened to what my teachers said.

The next thing that is drilled into to us is working for a company for over twenty-five years, retire and then travel.  The current economical environment of today shows us that this theory is a fallacy.  If I had taken the time to reflect and listened to whatever my essential self said. Who knows how much further in life I would be today?  When the essential self and social self are in alignment the satisfaction that you get out of your life would be everlasting.  My charge to you is that you take the time to listen to your essential self.

True Personal Development Education Requires Health and Wellness Awareness

Successful people sometimes give up their health to gain wealth. These same people then will give up their wealth to gain health. Your personal development education requires you train your mind, body and spirit.  Health and Wellness is a major industry and continuously growing everyday.  More people are focusing on preventing and keeping off illnesses.   You would be doing yourself an injustice if you only focused on just developing your mind.  Your body is one of the greatest marvels in the World; the inner working of your body is very complicated and intricate. Your heart is capable of beating until you are well over 100 hundred years old. The main factors that can stop your work of art from operating properly in its track are lack of exercise and your diet.  We must find the right combination of diet and exercise.  You must make a decision whether to live to eat or eat to live.   When you choose to eat to live, then food intake is easy.  There are five dirty ingredients that are detrimental to your health.  When you diet is filled with these ingredients you are more susceptible to diseases.

The five dirty ingredients are listed below:

1. High fructose corn syrup

2. Artificial color

3. Artificial Flavor

4. Enriched Flour

5. Partially hydrogenated and hydrogenated oils

You would be surprised how many products in your home have the ingredients above. Go to your refrigerator and cupboard and take an inventory of the five dirty ingredients. You will be amazed at the amount of products that have these ingredients. Your body is your temple so you have to be very careful that you don’t abuse it. You should be aware of the type of food which give or take away your energy.  When we are a little depressed we tend to eat sweets.  Sugar is one of the worst detriments to our body. We have many essential acids that are necessary to help our body function sugar is not one of them. The person who lives to eat life will be surrounded by these five dirty ingredients.   The next piece of puzzle that is extremely important is exercise.

A consistent program of exercise that has been shown to improve your bodily function is listed below:

1. Decreased risk of stroke and heart disease

2. Decreased body fat

3. Improved movements of joints and muscles

4. Improved oxygen deliveries throughout the body

5. Improved sense of well-being

6. Improved strength and endurance

Your exercise does not have to be four hours per day every day of the year.  You may exercise for twenty minutes per day for three times per week and your body will still reap the benefits listed above.  Don’t be a fanatic about exercising just develop consistency in your exercise program.

Your personal development training encompasses your mind, body and spirit. It is very important that your personal development training includes a structured program for your mind and body.  Your health and wellness care is an important arsenal in your personal development tools.   Your mind will try to fix or solve the problem when your body is not functioning at its best.  When you have your priorities in the proper sequence then diet and exercise becomes part of your life.  The right synergy of improving your personal development and taking care of your body must be achieved.  If your diet and exercise becomes natural like breathing then you know that success is not far away.
