The Desire Map Praise: Lianne Raymond
The first time I did The Desire Map, I called Danielle to say, This works! Declaring my core desired feelings uplifted my relationships and the way I work in the world. And nobody puts out poetic motivation like Danielle does. The Desire Map is a hotline to your truth.

The Desire Map Praise: Selena Soo
In a world filled with books, blogs, and magazine articles wanting to give us directions with how-to this and seven steps to that, Danielle gives us a map. A map is a full, whole lay of the land. It highlights the landscape. You can see the many ways to navigate, you can always find your bearings, you can choose a different path to the same destination. You can walk across the countryside and aren't limited to the roads. And desire, in case you didn't know, means "from the stars"- also a great navigation tool for humans throughout history.
With the stars and a map as your companions,will help you find your way home to yourself, to re-ignite the desire spark you were born with and hear the cry of your soul.

As I started reading the preview copy (of The Desire Map), tears began to well up in my eyes. Danielle said:
"Knowing how you actually want to feel is the most potent form of clarity that you can have. Generating those feelings is the most powerfully creative thing you can do with your life."
Those words moved me, because I finally understood why I'd been feeling so confused. While I'd achieved the goals I'd set for the first six months of my business, I didn't feel completely fulfilled by that success.
What if I were to use my feelings as the barometer for my success? Unfortunately, the way I'd been feeling the past few weeks definitely did not match up with what I really wanted.
I'd been bogged down in the day-to-day tasks of running a business. Like the typical busy entrepreneur, I had a never-ending to-do list. In the process, I'd been neglecting the projects I was yearning to create -- ones that would energize me, challenge me, and contribute to my growth.
Now that I'm clear about where I want to go, I'm feeling both relieved and excited. I'm excited to start using my core desires as my compass to set my goals and decide what I say yes to -- in both my personal and professional life.
