We do not have an information problem.
It's 2019, and we are deep in the information age. A good book, blog post, video or even a university course are all at our fingertips. Accessible at the touch or swipe of a couple of buttons.
We are chock full of technical information.
What we have is an adaptation problem.
We don't know what we want OR We are unable to take action on the things we want.
Why is it that so many people struggle with not achieving what they set out to?
Or why do so many of us unable to find that 'thing' to set out towards?
We all need to have the thing that sets our soul on fire. Our True North.
The knowledge that some people hate going to work, frustrated by the way they spend their day, living for the weekend tears me up inside.
Yes, we all suffer.
We all go through hard times, experience doubt and anxiety, and frustrations accompany us throughout our lives. We need to work hard, put our blood, sweat and tears into our thing.
All of that bad shit should be buoyed by an underlying purpose. The thing that gets you out of bed in the morning.
I'm setting out to do something about it.
My True North, is to help others Discover, Cultivate and Evolve theirs.
Nothing energises me more than seeing others find their purpose.
I have a question for you.
Who do you want to be?
True North is a mentoring program designed to help you answer that question.
This isn’t about reaching the finish line, it doesn’t exist. This is about the person you become along the way.
When you discover, cultivate and evolve your True North, you are deeply present and energised towards all aspects of your life.
Discover | Why do you get out of bed in the morning? What is your mission? If you don’t know the answer to this question, I want to help you seek it out. We all seek fulfilment, and that comes when we discover our true purpose, our gift, that thing that sets our soul on fire and inspires us to take on the world.
Cultivate | If your life's purpose has been uncovered, it must be developed. Development occurs through cultivating intent, purpose and ‘deliberate practice’. You can’t share your gift with the world from the comfort of your living room.
Evolve | Our responsibility as humans is to evolve. To transcend and include our current capacities and capabilities. We all want more. In some way, we are all dissatisfied. We owe it to our future self and all of those we serve to continue our evolution.
If you need the tools and accountability to get from where you are now to where you want to be.
If you are looking to level up, to grow your capacity personally or professionally.
You are in the right place.
Maslow's Hierarchy of needs outlines what we truly need as human beings.
First we must have our basic physiological needs met.
Air, water, food, shelter, clothing etc.
Secondly we must be safe.
Personal security, employment, resources, a roof over our head.
Thirdly we must feel love and belonging.
Friendship, intimacy, family and a sense of connection
Then we must have a level of esteem.
Respect, self love, recognition, freedom.
At the top, we have Self-Actualisation. Your True North.
Desire to become the absolute most that one can be.
We all have that in us. It's not as out of reach as it may seem.
Even a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
To your journey.
