“If you are working on something you really care about, you don’t have to be pushed. The vision pulls you.” -Steve Jobs
Many consider this the signature ritual of the entire MyMythos project.
The purpose of the Norther Star Ritual is to
- Realize who exactly it is you wish to be.
- Establish a constant set of goals to which you can strive every day.
- Align your daily life to these goals.
The Northern Star Ritual
Imagine the ultimate version of yourself in whatever ways that are important to you: fitness, profession, education, whatever you decide matters to you. Now imagine that version of yourself as a star on the horizon, it lights your path.
Now every thought, word, and action you make in life can be aligned to that path. If you are not working to maintain your direction on your path, you know you have to realign.
When To Activate
Whenever you second guess what you are doing/thinking, ask yourself “Do these thoughts/actions align with my path?”.
