Before we get into today’s Keepin’ It Real, I wanted to give you a heads up:
Now onto today’s KIR.
You may not know this about me but….
I’m not ok with just OK.
And while this way of being has typically served me in my business and the value that I provide for my clients, it hasn’t always served me in other areas.
I can speak from personal experience when I say that my “OK is not OK” attitude had an effect on my personal relationships.
Over the past few years, I’ve really taken the time to question whether OK…is enough.
I have to be honest, I still resist it. I still resist things being OK because quite frankly, I am a striver. But as each day goes by and I become more and grounded in my truth, I can tell you this:
What I choose to be OK with is up to me to define.
In this week’s Keepin’ It Real video, I get an email from Helene, who is in a marriage that is according to her, “Just OK.”
Her story is not an uncommon one so I would love for all of us to give her some support and share your tips in the comments below.
I just got back from Ottawa, Canada where I had the opportunity to speak and host a motivational event in honor of the one, the only…OPRAH WINFREY!!!! It was a life changing experience and I am honored to have had the opportunity.
People often ask me how I am able to balance my relationship with my husband given all the traveling that I do. It’s not easy. There are times that I feel guilty and worry that Ashish and I will grow apart because I’m always traveling! There is no way I can sit here and say that all the money and success means anything to me if my home-life is hanging by a thread.
Now more than ever, we are committed to strengthening our marriage because we both believe that the quality of our life is determined by the quality of our relationship. This includes going to marriage therapy and reading books on marriage. But even more than that, it’s about being intentional each and everyday about the words that we speak to one another and setting time to BE with each other.
Click play to learn how to put the “sparkle” back in your marriage. And listen, even if you aren’t married, watch the video anyway. Because whatever your current relationship status may be- your life is made of relationships.
Once you watch the video I would love to hear what has worked for you to put the “sparkle” back in your relationships?
Pumped to hear what you have to share!
P.S. I am hosting an interview with celebrity nutritionist, Cynthia Pasquella, TODAY!! We’re going to talk about her new book, The Hungry Hottie Cookbook, which is like no other cookbook you’ve ever seen. It’s been called a cookbook for your body and your life and it truly is. Cynthia will be sharing some pretty revolutionary stuff when it comes to weight loss, dieting, emotional eating and healing your relationship with food for good. To register for the call (and it’s free) click here and you’ll be able to listen in on the call. Don’t worry if you can’t make it because when you sign up, you will also be sent the recording!
If we are not learning, growing, expanding and taking action, then we’re dying a slow death.
Thank you 2012 for kicking my ass and teaching me these beautiful lessons.
1. Outward success doesn’t mean anything if the home front is falling apart.
Ok, I admit it. I work. A lot. I work to the point where I forget to pick up the phone and call friends and family. I work to the point where I neglect my physical well-being. Everything becomes secondary. Everything. The day that I decided to put me first was the day that the doors opened up to true success. Suddenly I was no longer living my life around my business. Instead, My business was an extension of who I was and I was living my life around it. It takes commitment, dedication, massive accountability, and trust. I’m still working on it but now more than ever, as my company starts to grow and new opportunities are created, I am focused on what matters the most- my health, my marriage, my friendships, and my family.
