make it happen

Rally people around your paradigm.

Fire Starters + astro-buffs,

They say to hold off on signing contracts when Mercury goes retrograde—which is now (from March 5 to March 28). That means it’s a great time to turn inward, let go, and get organized. If you’re getting ready to move on big plans, here are a few pointers:

When you enter into the deal-making phase—from real estate to intellectual property, gigs to partnerships—it can be like heading into a dark tunnel. The Deal Tunnel. Everyone’s opinions are echoing. Time pressure is on. You reeeeally want to get to the final deal, the light, at the end of the tunnel.

8 tips for sealing the deal (and the whole point is to seal the deal):

  1. Do NOT enter The Deal Tunnel if you are unsure if you actually want to make a deal. Simple: Do you want it or not? If the answer is yes, then proceed.
  2. People’s true character comes up in the negotiation process.
    You don’t have to love what they offer to stick with the process, but if you really don’t like what you see in their character, back out of The Deal Tunnel. More on that note:
  3. Do not misinterpret legitimate restrictions that your deal partners may have (i.e., they really may not have the money in their budget) as character flaws or power tripping behaviour. There are legalities and formalities that may be insurmountable—don’t take it personally. That said…
  4. Legalities and formalities can very often be surmounted. Exceptions happen when people choose to be exceptional.
  5. Time kills a lot of deals. If people involved are dragging their feet, be on alert. The ol’ drag and slag is a red flag. Are you in or are you out?
  6. Set deadlines for deal closing and do what it takes to meet them. Make the call. Make the promise. Pay the express rate. Tell the cab driver to step on it!
  7. Keep this in your heart: I want this to work out. When you’re in that pure desire, you can be more flexible for the bigger vision.
  8. Keep this in mind: I won’t die if this doesn’t work out. When you’re in healthy non-attachment, you will walk with your values every step of the way.

Always with Love,
Danielle

The most powerful possible Yes to women

…to the dark, the spacious, the sweet, the jaded, the women who live as certain as light rays,
who renovate broken boardrooms and policies with justified anger and overwhelming Love —
Love of inclusion, of ecology, of bone solid Truth — Love of Love.

Goddess of Grief Danielle LaPorte

the goddess of grief: getting to the other side. (and there is always another side.)

Grief is one of the most powerful Goddesses. She swallows your agony and lets it tear her apart. Beautiful birds fly from her belly – each one an insight into life and your power. Grief brings the whole flock to your window and she waits and waits to reveal universal truths to you. She goes to the depths with you. She rises with you…

The Principles of Active Waiting vs. feeling-like-a-loser, losing-your-mind kind of waiting…

I was at a friend’s cluttered apartment and he was saying how much he wanted to have a live-in girlfriend. And I was like, “Dude, where would she put her stuff?” He got his tidy on to make space for the live-in love he was waiting to find. That’s active waiting — happily preparing for what you trust is on its way to you.

this video has been getting a LOT of attention

What are you willing to do for your creative dream? Are you willing to transform? To give it up; be the fool; re-write your story; not recognize yourself; believe differently; be something, someone, you have not yet known? It does take a “miracle mindset”. And…

Some marketing know-how. Cosmic meets pragmatism.

You were born for this. See what I mean…

We believe in something bigger than ourselves. We understand that the cultural obsession with productivity is killing our joy & harming the planet. We KNOW the world needs leaders who uphold a triple bottom line—economic, social, environmental. So. This message is for you. (Especially if you’re a Creative, a teacher, a leader, an entrepreneur—or want to be.)
