success is a surprise party
My idea was : I’ll do a Pay What You Can Day to retire The Spark Kit and kick-off THE FIRE STARTER SESSIONS pre-order party.
My presumption was: I’ll sell enough Spark Kits to pay for a family vacation. Clear the energy for new things to come in.
What happened was: We made an Amazon Bestseller happen. That day, as I was helping a friend move, in between emails and an acupuncture treatment, my agent emailed me and said, “You’re #114 on Amazon.” It took me a minute to compute. It hadn’t occurred to me to even check. You see, the day before the book ranked #390,460 in overall books on Amazon.com.
My friend Jonathan Fields did a video post about my apparently brill tactical moves. And, yep, when God was handing out gold stars for promotional savvy, I campaigned for more. But here’s the thing…this early success was a complete surprise. It wasn’t what I planned. When it was clear that we were climbing the charts I thought to myself, “This ‘giving up expectations‘ shit really works.” I got all teary and taken aback.
Because here’s what I think when really fantastic awesome things happen in my own little world: God really does want for me what I want for me. And that, yep, cosmic intelligence is the hostess with the mostest.
Give it your all. Give it away. Your desires are being held in the hand of the cosmos with incredibly sturdy care. Life is not testing you. She is rooting for you.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
There’s more in store. Soon. Very soon.
P.S. I’m changing my site name to DanielleLaPorte.com. WhiteHotTruth has had it’s run. Death. Life. You know. I’ll explain. Tomorrow.
