First, what Living Your 10 is NOT. It's NOT about being perfect. This is real life, not a social media feed, so forget about perfect. 

Living Your 10 is about SHOWING UP at your best.

It's about being truly happy and FULFILLED because you're realizing your personal POTENTIAL, having incredible, meaningful RELATIONSHIPS, impacting people, and living a PURPOSEFUL LIFE.

It's about being the best partner, parent, and leader you can be.

It's about consistent, incremental personal growth.

It's about optimal mental health. 

It's about thinking, making decisions, feeling, and performing as the best version of yourself and living your best life on your own terms.

It's your life. On a scale from 1-10, where do you want to be?
What stands between You and Your 10?

Remember when you were a kid and thought anything was possible? You had big dreams of how you were going to show up in life - the things you could achieve, the kind of relationships you could build, the impact you could make…


Then something got in the way.

We've learned to live a 6 or 7 by default

We've learned to accept a life that's "fine" or "good enough". So we coast through life when it feels like we're meant for more.


It's why we feel uninspired and plateau in life - like we've hit a ceiling - and why too many of us are settling for a 6 or 7 life instead of carving our own path, being our best self, and Living Our 10.
