The Desire Map

how do you want to feel today?

You want it and you want it bad. Aspiring. Hoping. Plotting. Recurring. Reaching. Bubbling beneath your surface. You crave it — and it craves you.

So you make a plan to get it. A to-do list. The bucket list. Quarterly objectives. Strategy. Accountability. The goal. Except . . .

You’re not chasing the goal itself, you’re actually chasing a feeling.

We have the procedures of achievement upside down. We go after the stuff we want to have, get, accomplish, and experience outside of ourselves. And we hope, yearn, pray that we’ll be fulfilled when we get there. It’s backwards. It’s outside in. And it’s running us in circles.

What if, first, we got clear on how we actually wanted to feel in our life, and then we laid out our intentions? What if your most desired feelings consciously informed how you plan your day, your year, your career, your holidays — your life?

You know what will happen with that kind of inner clarity and outer action? You’ll feel the way you want to feel more often than not. Decisions will be easier to make: You’ll know what to say no, thank you to and what to say hell yes! to. I bet you’ll complain less. You’ll be more optimistic, more open-hearted. It will be easier for you to return to your center in the midst of a challenge — I promise.

You will do much less proving, and way more living.

And you will have more to give to the world.

For starters.

Welcome to The Desire Map.

The Desire Map
Collection

Most life-planning tools focus on external attainment and results. Which is valuable. Getting results is what moves your life forward. Except that most goal-setting systems fail to harness the most powerful driver behind any aspiration: your preferred feelings; and they foster an uptight determination that can keep us from the vitality we crave.

The Desire Map program is changing all of that. You could call it holistic life-planning. The inner meets the outer. The spirit drives the material.

As a therapist, I make The Desire Map required reading for clients looking to take their lives and life satisfaction to the next level. This is a genius and profoundly effective guide to actualizing your deepest desires.

Testimonial

Michael Bernard Beckwith Life Visioning

“With an organic elegance The Desire Map couples our primal desire-energy with the inborn intelligence of our feelings. The result? Optimizing our time on Earth. LaPorte’s joie de vivre is contagious. Prepare to catch it!”

Testimonial

Sara Gottfried M.D The Hormone Cure

“Danielle is a yoga-powered champion of YOU-ness. That is… you, rocking your mission and brimming with desire. And The Desire Map lays out the roadmap for how to rewire your desire, not stress. She has accomplished something extraordinary.”

Testimonial

Kris Carr Crazy Sexy Kitchen, Crazy Sexy Diet

When I sat down with The Desire Map, I immediately felt my shoulders relax. Within the first few pages I was nodding my head. I felt heard and validated. She did it. She gets it. And now everyone else can too.

I WISH that this goldmine of insight and practical guidance had been by my side over the years. I feel blessed to have Danielle in my life, and I can’t wait to see the floodgates of bliss, a-ha’s and life-changing shifts burst open as people put their Desire Map into practice.

see more love

What I'm currently reading - The Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte. Highly recommended if ure seeking to create a beautiful life. Shift ur perspective - instead of asking urself what u want to accomplish in life, ask urself how do u want to experience it? The Sufi poet, Rumi says it best, "What u seek is seeking u." #inspiration#dailythoughts#whatimreading#book#desiremap#rose#pretty#crystals#quartz#styling
