“When being real is your priority, the various parts of your life start to groove. Your career will begin to reflect your true passion; your living room will match your values; your friends will fit your soul; and your wealth—of which there are many definitions—will start to measure up with your notion of freedom. Sometimes the courage to be true to yourself comes in the form of an out-loud declaration, a rebellion, or a love-drenched vow. Other times it’s a quiet conviction that we can read in your eyes. Mighty or discreet, authenticity is the muscle that helps you shake up beliefs, policies, and restraints, and gives you the strength to do the things some say can’t be done. Being genuine is the foundation of integrity—often inconvenient and not always painless—but the only way to go if you’re here to really truly, fully live”.
And with that, Danielle LaPorte invites you to come sit by the fire in her book, The Fire Starter Sessions, A soulful + Practical Guide to Creating Success On Your Own Terms.
This woman is truly on fire herself. She is witty, authentic, honest, real, creative, saucy, inspiring, and incredibly excited about her life. She wants to succeed on her terms and she wants you to succeed in your life on your terms too.
Danielle shares that there is nothing I can give you that you don’t already have inside. I agree with her 100%. You have everything you need in you. Often many of us just want or need some help accessing our greatness. I am included.
With each chapter, she helps you reconnect with yourself in a deep and heartfelt way. From defining yourself to the strategy of desire, visioneering, fear and other tough stuff, to how you show up in the world.
She talks about outdated ideas in new ways, and offers radical thoughts that relit my own fire. After she shares her best, each chapter ends with exercises and questions to discover more about you. One of the visualizations helped me uncover that I wasn’t fully showing up in parts of my own life. Great information for me if I want to start fully showing up.
If you are completely fulfilled in your own life then this book might not be for you. Looking for some ways to re-ignite your own spark from within? Then check this book out.
