The Fire Starter Sessions

the permission slip you’ve been waiting for.

The Fire Starter Sessions is the permission slip you’ve been waiting for – to fully want what you want and go for it, to expand your consciousness and your cash flow, to up the ante on your dreams, to be incredibly generous with your love. This is a modern-day pep talk and soul-centered Q&A for people ready to shine brighter than they ever have.

And after these straight-talking sermons and burning questions about your truest desires – from career to relationships – you’ll be clear that the only permission you need to shine … is your own.

The Fire Starter Sessions reframes popular self-help and success concepts to cut through dull thinking and fear, and get straight to one’s core desires, pragmatism, and courage – and burn some illusions to a crisp…

  • Life balance is a myth, and the pursuit of it is causing us more stress than the craving for balance itself.
  • Being well-rounded is highly over-rated. When you focus on developing your true strengths you enter your mastery zone.
  • Screw your principles, well, some of them. (They might be holding you back.)
  • We have ambition backwards. Getting clear on how you want to feel in your life + work is more important than setting goals. It’s the most potent form of clarity that you can have, and it’s what leads to true fulfillment.
  • Competency is for suckers. Your most valuable currency is what comes naturally to you. When you focus on developing your true strengths, you enter your mastery zone.
  • You’re an artist, and that’s that. When we’re giving our best, we’re being artistic. When you’re bringing your whole self to the party, you’re making poetry happen — and you do it all the time, naturally.

The Fire Starter Sessions:

Each session in the book is accompanied by worksheets that are provocative and results-oriented. We’ll talk about contradictions — you should leverage them. And money — how much do you want… and why? And soul — what else is there? And ground it all in the practical how-to’s of getting what you want. Because theories are nothing without intelligent action.

This is an inquiry into You, with proof-of-theory vignettes to keep you inspired along the way. My own personal narrative of loss and achievement — from boardrooms to ashrams — flows with stories of women and men who stopped playing it safe, deepened their commitment to their soul, and became freedom seekers and fear tamers. Bright.

You’re next.

"Something inside of me had clicked into it's rightful place. Ruthless compassion. Yes, I was done suffering fools. No, I would not make pretty spiritualized excuses for anyone's bad behavior anymore - mine included. I would put on my own oxygen mask first. I would stand in my very immense power and I would aim to it free of vengeance, free of resentment, grateful for all that I had. Inside I was purring like a panther in a tree. Smiling." - Danielle LaPorte - Fire Starter Sessions #heathermillerdesigns #daniellelaporte #FireSS
