The Impact of a Book
Is there a book sitting on your coffee table or bookshelf that changed your life? A book that vibrates with power. Pure transformational energy.
There are a couple of books like that for me. One of them is The Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte.
Before I read Danielle’s book, this is how I felt about goal setting and my life:
The focus was on what I wanted to HAVE (yes, the tangible stuff like that pair of cute shoes) instead of how I wanted to BE and FEEL.
I lost the excitement and enthusiasm about the goal quickly.
I felt like a failure if I set a BIG goal and failed to reach it. I was focused more on the end result than the wins along the way.
Then, I read this book and almost overnight, big changes started to happen for me.
I realized… I was chasing someone else's dream.
I started… PAYING ATTENTION. To how I was spending my energy, time and money.
I let go of… STUFF and obligations that were distracting me from time with my family & time for me. (NOTE: This is an ongoing process of releasing what no longer serves me)
The way we set goals is the way we live our lives. Your goals are your plans. They’re your vision for your future (and probably, your family’s future, too). Did you choose that vision on purpose? With clarity and confidence?
Are your goals based on your heart’s true desires, or what society tells you that you should want? Are your goals driven by your core desired feelings, or by the expectations your friends or family have of you?
Read The Desire Map, by Danielle LaPorte, and answer those questions for yourself.
When you get clear on the way you most want to feel and you make life choices based on those core desired feelings, well… I can speak from experience and say that EVERYTHING changes.
Life gets brighter, clearer, more fulfilling. Life feels better!
I’m wishing that for you — today and always.
