Book Description

April 17 2012
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 fulfillment.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fake it till you.... Dec 5 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Its all a bunch of bull, almost everything that was said was contradicting. Just like the Author admitted they are the master of faking it till you make it, the book was fake all the way through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant. But was there any doubt it would be? May 23 2012
By Chela
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Brilliant. Just what you come to expect from Danielle LaPorte. Ferocity and Heart. I keep being struck deeply by the words, the call, to step up and do my work. I love the anecdotes, I seriously burst into tears, you can feel the humanity, the truth about what we're grappling with as human beings and this baby peers right in, takes you on a tour of yourself and lures you higher. Bravo.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent, heartfelt advice May 13 2012
Format:Hardcover
This is book feels like a direct talk with Danielle. It's open, direct, and cuts right to what you need to hear. The worksheets are very useful - each one asks a few pointed questions that helped me to get to the nub of the things that are holding me back. To get a sense of Danielle's style and direction, check out her blog posts, which are a major source of fodder for this book. If you love her blog, this book will be valuable for you.

I had to get this book after hearing a few of my friends raving about it. As soon as I got it, I could see why. The book itself is high-quality, beautifully styled and a treat to go through. Most importantly, once I started reading --- it immediately hit home. Danielle LaPorte really cuts through a lot of crap and has a wicked sense of humor. I'm not one for fluffy motivational content --- and this book is the exact opposite of that. It's entertaining and literally lit my pants on fire to get moving on what matters most to me. I highly recommend this not only to read for yourself --- but this makes a FANTASTIC gift for any girlfriend, wife, sister, etc.
