C.J. Frost writes a heartfelt, funny and sincere account of how he found happiness and redemption in Finding Your True North. C. J. Frost began experiencing physiological distress after the death of his father. He didn't know where the pain and hopelessness was coming from but it had, throughout his life, left him friendless and alone and in dead-end relationships where he had played and used every woman he was with. As his memory began to become clear to him, he realized he'd been dramatically traumatized as a child. What followed was a exploration that led him into a place of darkness and self-destruction that cost him everything-his marriage, his livelihood and C.J. found himself homeless with no friends and no where to turn. After years of scraping rock bottom, C.J. had an epiphany. He knew he had to turn his life around, not just for him, but for his son. His son became his "True North" and C.J. slowly and painfully began the tenuous path of self-discovery and recovery. Finding an unbridled passion for everyone that is lost, alone and who feel there is no hope and no way out. Frost's inspiring narration will encourage you to reach for and find your own True North, no matter what your life situation or past experiences.

New York Times bestselling author and Life Designs, Inc. creator Martha Beck shares her step-by-step program that will guide you to fulfill your own potential and create a joyful life. In this book, you'll start by learning how to read the internal compasses already built into your brain and body--and why you may have spent your life ignoring their signals. As you become reacquainted with your own deepest desires, you'll identify and repair any unconscious beliefs or unhealed emotional wounds that may be blocking your progress. This will change your life, but don't worry--although every life is unique, major transformations have common elements, and Beck provides a map that will guide you through your own life changes. You'll learn how to navigate every stage, from the first flickering appearance of a new dream to the planning and implementation of your own ideal life. Based on Dr. Beck's work as a Harvard-trained sociologist, research associate at Harvard Business School, instructor at Thunderbird Business School, and especially on her experiences with her clients over the last six years, Finding Your Own North Star offers thoroughly tested case studies, questionnaires, and exercises to help you articulate your core desires and act on them to build a more satisfying life. “Explorers depend on the North Star 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.” -- Martha Beck
