On Your Reading List

The Fire Starter Sessions

“Your most valuable currency is what comes most naturally to you. CASH IN.”
The Fire Starter Sessions is an apathy-kicking, integrity-infusing guide to defining success on your own terms. 
As the creator of DanielleLaPorte.com-deemed “the best place online for kick-ass spirituality,” Danielle LaPorte’s straight-talk life-and-livelihood sermons have been read by over one million people. Bold but empathetic, she reframes popular self-help and success concepts:

  • Life balance is a myth, and the pursuit of it is causing us more stress then the craving for balance itself.
  • Being well-rounded is over-rated. When you focus on developing your true strengths, you enter your mastery zone.
  • Screw your principles (they might be holding you back). 
  • We have ambition backwards. Getting clear on how you want to feel in your life + work is more important than setting goals. It’s the most potent form of clarity that you can have, and it’s what leads to true fulfilment.

The question isn’t who’s going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.
