The TEN Life!
It occurred to me one day that I’ve been living my whole life believing a lie. You know how we’re taught that there is no way to “have it all”? Like, it is impossible to have an amazing marriage, and also a fulfilling career. Or that there’s no way you can be a phenomenal mom and have a healthy body. And surely you can’t be a good wife and mother if you make building your business or moving up in your career a priority. I don’t believe that anymore. You know why? Because I don’t think that God limits us to having peace and fulfillment in only certain areas of our life. So I started thinking about a question I often ask my clients. If you had to rate different areas of your life (you, your relationships, your career/business, your money, your health) on a scale of 1-10, what would you rate it and why? If it’s not a 10, what would make it a 10? Most people never think about this. They just accept things as they are. They accept that life is just as it is, as if there is nothing they can do about it. If I had my ideal life – my TEN Life, what would it be? The answer doesn’t lie in outside circumstances, or with other people. The answer is within. Living your TEN Life isn’t about striving to reach some version of unrealistic perfection. It’s about being peaceful, fulfilled, and purposeful in all areas of your life. That looks different for everyone, but is available for all of us. It’s available even in nothing or nobody in your life changes, because it begins and ends with you. How you feel about any part of your life changes when you change your thoughts about that area of your life. And when your feelings change, your actions change. You will begin to do things differently, and more in line with who you want to become. And by changing your actions, you are ultimately changing your results and changing your LIFE. That’s your TEN Life, and it’s available to you right now!
