Are you looking for more out of life?

Many people are looking for a little more excitement, passion, or adventure. A little more balance.

They want to feel a little more alive. More free. Like they’re making a difference. Like they’re taking advantage of the life they’ve been given.

If this hits home, it’s time to change up the routine a bit … or a lot.

But, sometimes it’s hard to know what that change even looks like – all you know is that what you’re doing sure isn’t it.

Other times, you can see the picture of the life you want. You can imagine what you’re doing and how you’re spending your days – but you just don’t know how to make it happen.

Have you found your North?

Imagine when you’re going to bed at night. What are you thinking about, worrying about, dreaming about? When you can close your eyes and feel peace with your days, we call this “North.” It’s the life that has congruence between your values and your actions, balance between your desires and your obligations, and moves you forward while still allowing you to live right now.

For some, it’s hard to identify what their North looks like, a necessary step to creating a fulfilling life.

For others, it can be hard to embrace their North, especially if living their best life doesn’t fit a traditional mold.

For almost everyone, it’s hard to have the courage to set boundaries, make the intentional decisions, and create the balance that lets them live the life they want.

Whether you need help identifying, embracing, or making the change to live the life you want, coaching can help. At Finding North, our goal is to help you live your North and enjoy this adventure of life.

WITH ONE-ON-ONE COACHING, STRENGTHEN YOUR MINDSET AND HABITS

to live more adventurously, courageously, intentionally

Get clear on
where you're going

If you aren’t clear on your “Big North”, every day is left to chance. What does that happy, healthy life really look like for you? What are you doing? Who else is in it? We will focus on what you want to create and why it’s important to you.

Get unstuck
and start moving

Once you know where you’re going, it’s a lot easier to see the different paths that take you there. What little changes could make your route a little more direct? A little more fun? We will focus on how to be more intentional with how you spend your time.

Connect with
your courage

Putting in the work to move forward takes courage. It means accepting yourself, being intentional with when you say “yes” and “no”, and setting boundaries. We will focus on how to build courage and actually believe in your ability to succeed.

Build relationships
and connect with others

The famous quote rings true: Happiness is real when shared. And even more so, we are capable of so much more when move forward with a supportive, genuine system around us. We will focus on the quality of the human connection around you.

Feel alive
and live life

It’s about peace, balance, and passion for the life you’re living. It could be learning a new skill, safely stretching your comfort zone, or feeling more in charge of your days. We will focus on finding ways to bring you more joy and love the life you live.

Dream big
and make things happen

Set goals, define milestones, and turn those dreams into reality. We will focus on identifying the barriers, limits, and fears that get in your way putting a plan together so you can courageously and consistently move forward in making it happen.

A healthy, happy life doesn’t happen by accident. It takes a vision, intentional decision-making, and courage.

For a long time, I was doing all the right things and living a good life – but I felt unsettled. I quit a great job and moved abroad to live a more purpose-driven and outdoor-inspired lifestyle. This experience has shown me that too often we make life decisions by default of what is normally done.

Lots of reflection and time in the outdoors helped me imagine a different way, more tailored to me and the way I want to live. If you’re looking to spend more time outside, live on a non-traditional path, or simply be more intentional with how you spend your days, set up a complimentary discovery call and let’s see if coaching with me could be a fit for you.

Your big North is whatever life looks like when you can go to bed each night feeling peace with how you’re spending your days and living your life. It represents your balance of life’s important aspects (little norths) – your health, finances, relationships, fun, and development.

Why do you need to know your North? Get a vision of where you’re going and it’s a lot easier to see the different paths that lead there.  With your North identified, you cannot get lost. You’re human, so you may take a detour, falter, and wander off, but your North helps you find the way back. In the midst of a busy life, it keeps you grounded and on track.

How fulfilled are you in the important areas of life? Are the highest priorities receiving the right attention? Are you making intentional decisions to create more happiness?

Feeling peace doesn’t come from having a 10/10 in every area or about having everything equal. It’s about having them balanced in a way that makes sense to you right now, considering where you want to go. Our priorities shift as we evolve through different stages of life and it’s important we understand what we need to feed.
