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:
Career focused goals were most important and easiest to track.
The longer the list the more chance to get the "check it off the list" (Dopamine) feeling.
Then, I read this book and almost overnight, big changes started to happen for me.
I realized…I never paused to get clear on why I set those goals and what feeling I was chasing.
I started… paying attention to how I felt, pausing to reflect and connect to myself, then deciding what I should spend my time on.
I let go of… anxiety, excess weight (mental and physical) and a lot of my co-dependent tendencies.
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.
