The following is a short book preview about what it means to be the star contributed by the Ohio State University Leadership Center.
What Is Your WHAT?: Discover The One Amazing Thing You Were Born To Do
Steve Olsher, Hoboken, NJ: Wiley & Sons (2013)
“What I mean by Star is connecting to your true self and living your life to the fullest. For one person, that might mean becoming an amazingly inspirational second-grade teacher. For another, it might mean being an exceptionally gentle and popular dentist.
As long as you are being true to yourself, it doesn’t matter what career you star in. Nor is it important whether the stage you choose is for a relatively small audience or for millions. What counts most is that you pursue what’s right for you, and you consistently give 100 percent of yourself to achieve the best performance.
If you’re great about what you do, recognition will follow. And while being recognized as a Star might not be your goal, your example will inspire others to follow their life’s path – which should be worth any temporary discomfort you experience from your celebrity (p. 135).”
