"If "having it all" means drawing enough strength from life to feel fulfilled, loved, successful, and in control, then that is something every single one of us should aim for and every single one of us can attain." - Mark Buckingham
Have you given up on "having it all"? Or maybe you're so busy having it all that you can't figure out how to enjoy it? Maybe, you don't even know what "all" you're supposed to have anymore?
You are not alone.

Watch this amazing 5 minute video of real women sharing their fork in the road of life and how they define "finding their strongest life".
Is it even possible for women to have it all? On the surface, it would seem so. Trying to be all things to all people all of the time is a fool's game that will, in the end, drain mind, body and spirit. But if you dig a little deeper and you have to ask yourself, "What's the alternative?". An approach to life that begins with the question, "Which parts of myself must I cut out?" inevitably leads to a laundry list of unhealthy emotions: panic that you can't cut out enough, confusion over which parts to cut out, fear that you've cut out the wrong parts, guilt about that fear, and resentment about all of it. It's the wrong question.
The right question is, "What do I mean by "having it all"? Because if having it all means drawing enough strength from life to feel fulfilled, loved, successful, and in control, then that is something every single one of us should aim for an every single one of us can attain.
"Having it all" doesn't mean having everything, all at once, all the time. "Having it all" means taking yourself seriously. It means knowing yourself well enough to find your purpose in life. It means knowing what needs to change when you sense that you've lost that purpose...it means having the faith to believe that change is possible and having the courage to make those changes. It means drawing strength from the relationships in your life, and, if there's no strength to be drawn, knowing when to cut those relationships out of your life.
It means mastering the skill of using life to fill you up. That is all you can do, and it is everything you need to do. The aim of the book is to teach you this life skill.
So what's holding you back from your strongest life? Take the Strong Life Test and get on your path to finding your happiest life!
