Publisher's Summary

Is it possible for a news anchor to become a professional athlete? Can a disheartened architect build a new career as a luxury car designer? They can, and they have, says Martha Beck, whose advice is sought each month by over two million readers in O: The Oprah Magazine. Now, on Follow Your North Star, she teaches you how to recognize the cues from within that will tell you whether your job, relationship, and environment (even your daily schedule), are leading you in the right direction. "Just as a compass needle always turns towards true north, you already know how to find the right life," she says. Join Beck to learn more about:

  • How to recognize when sabotaging your own success is really an expression of your inner wisdom
  • Too many unavoidable tasks bogging you down? Reinvent your daily routine to maximize your "life momentum"
  • How to use your own "internal navigation system" to chart a course toward freedom and fulfillment
  • Eagle vision/mouse vision: why both perspectives are crucial to clarify your dreams, and more

With visualizations, meditations, and relevant insights, Martha Beck guides you step-by-step through the process of changing the life you have now into one that will move you to the "true north" you are meant to travel.

directions for change

a mix of metaphors but solid advice from an eastern philosopy. I enjoyed the journey and was helped.

So inspiring!

It was like having a conversation with a friend! If you're listening in the car, there are multiple exercises you'll need to come back to doing at a later time and journaling about. But you can still listen through it as the exercises are ones she recommends you do often in life.

This book helped change my life!

Finally I broke through! I cannot send enough love to Martha Beck for writing this book. It explained to me not only the stage I am (was) in but why I was feeling what I was feeling, and why things seemed way harder then they should be. The tools she offers here are life changing and absolutely amazing.

If you feel stuck or unsure about where you are going or working extremely hard but not getting anywhere this book will help you!

This is the first book by this author I have read, I have seen her before on Oprah. I will be reading all the other books by her!

I hope this book can help you understand the mystery and much as it did me.

Take it To Heart

What did you love best about Follow Your North Star?

I own this n paperback and bought the audio book so I could listen over and over. Martha really has something to say and this book gets me to break away from old patterns that aren't serving so well. I've gone back to it many times and made real changes around her suggestions.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Follow Your North Star?

Probably changing my story about a relationship I was in which took me in one direction and then something totally different.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

The true self only becomes destructive when it can't align itself with what is happening.

I can't get enough of Martha Beck!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes! I recommend all of Martha Beck's books all the time! This is a quick "read" and it gives you some concrete ways to get your life on track. She's very intelligent and funny and so likable!

What does Martha Beck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I am always thrilled to hear Martha Beck's words from her Martha Beck's own voice. She brings a level of personal connection into it. It feels as though she's sitting right there talking directly to me.

I needed this book.

My on going joke is that I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. I’m 33. I have a child, 3 businesses and have been through a lot of loss this past year. Motherhood also has a way of throwing a creative seeker through a loop. If you have ever wondered “What the hell am I doing!?” you will be in for a surprise. You can figure it out. Martha helps you get out of your own way and see a clear path to what the soul really wants. I will now recommend this book to every creative entrepreneur I know. It was the little bit of sunlight I needed.

Highly recommended growth book

From time to time you come across a book that truly resonates and for me this book hit a number of spots. Far too many to write about but at the end there was a lovely Native American proverb "when you were born you cried and the world rejoiced, live in such a way that when you die the world will cry and you will rejoice" and while I'm not sure the world will cry for me just yet ... The book has the recipe for me to get there 👍🙏

Love this book!

Really had a few ah ha moments listening to this insightful book. Ideal when you reach that crossroad moment of your life or when you feel you have lost direction. And just a thoroughly good book.
