Lifestyle First: Understanding the Thrill Seeker lifestyle
The world is fast-changing, so let’s shift away from a traditional mindset of life + work.
Our curriculum, rooted in Social Emotional Learning and reflective practice, helps learners develop greater awareness, gain exposure to careers and industries, and begin the process of designing their ideal lifestyle.
The Find Your Grind curriculum focuses on shifting the traditional mindset.
We’ve been taught to think of the job we want, acquire those strengths, then somehow fit in our lifestyle around that job.
Instead of answering the question, “what do you want to do when you grow up?” Let’s start answering the question “who do you want to be?”
This mindset shift all starts with Flipping the Funnel and getting to know yourself—what lifestyle you want to live, what strengths you have, and what job matches both.
The Thrill Seeker Lifestyle
Learn how Thrill Seekers leverage their strengths to make the world a better place.
Thrill Seekers find comfort and personal satisfaction from living on the edge. They have learned to trust their mind and body, and excel at competition, even with themselves.
Their fearless spirit helps them achieve things others wouldn’t dare attempt. Thrill Seekers harness their moxie, and match it with persistence to satisfy their zest for life!

Find Your Grind’s network of mentors share real-life stories and personal experiences to humanize career exploration for students. We also have a diverse and growing library of careers for students to explore and find ones that fit with their skills and lifestyles.

Every learner who experiences Find Your Grind takes our proprietary Lifestyle Assessment multiple times throughout the curriculum. We’ve collected thousands of responses from learners, and Thrill Seekers represent 1.29% of learners that use Find Your Grind.
All learners using Find Your Grind receive a personalized learning experience unique to them, and Thrill Seekers will experience careers and mentors that are more highly associated with this lifestyle, resulting in greater learning engagement, and improved learning outcomes across the four capabilities that the Find Your Grind Future Ready Framework delivers on – Self Awareness, Social Awareness, Career Awareness, and Action Awareness.
