I’m doing a new thing on this blog. When I find something I love, I’m going to share it in a new column called “Fun Find Friday”.
I’m an open Danielle LaPorte fan. With the exception of her occasional use of the “F” word, I love everything she does. 🙂 She’s an amazing speaker. We had her come to Touchpoint for Startup Princess in 2010, and I found her to be incredibly business savvy, and super down to earth and easy to talk to.
Though I knew I’d love reading this book, and thought I had died and gone to heaven when I got an advanced copy, I loved it even more than I thought I would. I love the consistent through-line of heat, fire, and flame as an analogy to ignite the soul purpose that each of us have inside. I love the typography and how her juiciest nuggets are in big, bold type to make sure that we don’t miss them.
I love the quote in this picture, “Knowing how you actually want to feel is the most potent form of clarity that you can have. Generating those feelings is the most creative thing you can do with your life.”
One thing I have wanted more than anything lately is clarity. I don’t know if you’ve ever felt this before, but running and actually being your own company can be very vulnerable. That kind of vulnerability makes me feel discombobulated and at times overwhelmed. This quote leapt off the paper and fanned a flame with me.
When we focus on how we want to FEEL and do those things on a more regular basis then the clarity comes. When we focus on “To Dos” we can easily get back to into overwhelm. When I’m focused on peace, joy, and abundance then I’m more selective in my tasks. I say “No” to the good things, so I can say “Yes” to the great ones.
I’m not doing this book justice with this review, but more than anything, I want you to read this book so that you can light your own fire and glean what you need. This book is a must have for anyone who wants more love, joy, and even those who are chasing after more dollars in their pockets. And it’s for those who have a message to share and want to birth it.
The book is released on April 17th, 2012. You can reserve your copy and check out the bonuses for pre-ordering before April 17th.
