Looking for inspiration? Author Terry A. Smith will provide the reader with multiple ways to improve his/her life and reach optimal happiness. The author will remind the reader that God is always looking out for him/her and ready to catch you when you fall. A program is provided to the reader to maximize his/her life to a TEN. The steps are not hard and do not require a drastic change in one's lifestyle. The steps range from "wake up to the preferred future that is within you" and "accept the call to get started living the more and better life you were intended to live."

Personal stories as well as historical facts are provided to support the program and provide guidance and inspiration to the reader. The applicable knowledge will make a TEN lifestyle seem much more reachable to the reader. The author provides his own TEN story that will make the reader believe in him more and see him as someone who has researched this TEN life he writes about. The steps are split into easily navigable chapters that outline the step and provide support very clearly. This book is a great read for the religious and/or adults trying to improve their lives.

Terry Smith provokes you to want to seek a better life and gives you the way to achieve it in a fascinating way. After reading it I wanted to start a business, run a race, sail all seas,invent something , write a song and a book and cure cancer all at the age of 60! If the book does not motivate you it will cause you to think about something...God's role in our journey of life. A great read for any age...but I feel it could really benefit those who are in the beginning or midway through their life journey.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Janette Fuller on February 28, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Pastor Smith has written a vibrant, inspiring book about how to find and live God's will for our lives. He believes that God has more in store for us than we realize and we must strive to create the best possible future for ourselves and others.

The book is divided into the following seven sections that instruct and guide the reader in living a TEN life;

Awaken
Discover
Imagine
Grow
Act
Lead
Go
The author believes that people do not want enough. Not more stuff. More life. And not just for ourselves but also for others. Jesus Christ said that His purpose is to give us more "life - life in all its fullness" or "more and better life than [you] ever dreamed of" (John 10:10, NCV, MSG).

The author challenges and provokes the reader to go after the more and better life that God wants for you. The world needs people who would never be satisfied with anything less than a TEN.

This book is written and organized in a very professional manner. The author makes a strong case for living your best life and he uses Scripture from the Bible as a foundation for his message.

There are "Reflection Questions" at the end of each of the seven sections. These questions are great for individual or group reflection and meditation. This book would be a very helpful resource for a Bible study group.

I love the enthusiasm and passion that the author communicates in this book. I can tell that this is a man who really "walks the talk" and "practices what he preaches".

Pastor Smith believes we must have more than a dream. Our grand vision needs to be turned into an actionable plan. I recommend this book to anyone who is ready to start living a TEN life.

FYI ~ I received a complimentary hardback copy of this book to read and review from Audra Jennings of The B & B Media Group.

Format: Hardcover
Praiseworthy endorsements by a cross section of noted Ministers, humanitarians, leaders in business, education, community services, and faith based ministries assure the reader of the potential of the principles introduced by Terry A. Smith in his book "TEN: How Would You Rate Your Life?" Terry takes a fresh look at answering the question, "What Does it Take to Live a Fulfilled Life?"

The book is made up of seven parts guiding the reader through a progression of steps that will awaken hope for the future and help the reader discover life's individual role in fulfilling God's planned destiny. Smith introduces keys to discovery, creative imagination and the spiritual implications of leadership that will move your dreams from possibilities to actualities.

I found several significant concepts for additional refection and personal implementation especially intriguing:

* The concept of giving birth to ideas that can exponentially impact thousands of others
* Partnering with God in my own destiny fulfillment
* Being a co-worker with God in accomplishing His plans
* Recognizing and operating within my life's boundaries
* The evolutionary and determinative elements in the development of my personal worldview
* The circles of change concept of fulfilling my destiny
* The transcendent steps: Choose-Respond-Change
* The power within me for change and the positive influence I can have on the lives of others

Terry Smith's writing is fresh and articulate. He uses a balance of choice scriptures with personal, contemporary, and classic real life illustrations to reinforce his message. He is well read. His writing is thoroughly documented. Highly recommended.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
