it's been very real, 2010: a white hot retrospective
Words with resonance. Testimonials that made me glow. And a couple surprise wildfires. Here’s a glimpse.
A trio of articles that triggered viral sweetness:
: the declaration of deserving…just because you’re here “What do you think you’re entitled to?” Believing in your implicit worth liberates you to create more value for the world you serve.
: 7 things I know about active letting go. (sure beats waiting.) “Active letting go” is not to be mistaken for “passive letting go.” Active letting go is a practice. It’s awake. And it’s somewhat delightful (except for the agony of it.)
: escaping? from what? your pain? or your power? Recapitulating the reasons for your hurts, and isms, and faults can become addictive in and of itself. Eventually, you have to stop picking a fight with your true nature and decide to seek the joy that underlies it All.
ga’head, make me blush
Got some praise this year that made me bat my lashes:
“Danielle LaPorte was impeccable on our stage. She infused every participant with magic, love and possibility. I am so deeply honored and grateful for her presence and her message. She is pure magic.” - Marie Forleo | CEO, Rich Happy & Hot
> Forleo and I are joining forces in 2011 to create an learning experience around creativity and sales…keep your antenna up for details.
“Danielle was a guest speaker for our World-Changing Writing Workshop, and she brought down the house. Our students rated Danielle #1 out of all the speakers in the course. Why? It’s a toss-up between her idealistic passion that fires you up with every word, and her concrete advice that you can put into practice immediately.” - Pace Smith | Co-leader, World-Changing Writing Workshop
> Oh, and my reward for being voted “fave speaker of the series”? The chance to share my segment with the masses — for free.
Sometimes, things spontaneously combust — in a beautiful way.
With 900+ tweets, 3800 Facebook shares and 2,600+ StumbleUpons, the manifesto of encouragement took on a life of its own.
