Book Review: Fire Starter Sessions

What kobo.com says:

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 than the craving for balance itself.
: Being well-rounded is overrated. 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 backwardGetting 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.

Fire Starter Sessions

What I say: This is a lovely soul-fire-up book. Danielle LaPorte is a fierce Canadian author and definitely puts her soul into success searching. Her book is broken down into 3 Parts (Mojo, Moxie & Results) and 16 Sessions (or chapters). Sessions that really spoke to me at this moment were the No, Thank You. Yes, Please chapter whose worksheet you work through The Stop-Doing List. I’m definitely guilty of trying to take on too many projects at once so I need to focus on how to say no so I can make room for more YES! I also loved Session 15 of Be The Giver. I seek and reach out to mentors as I move through my career & personal aspirations so as I gain knowledge and ideas I’m always willing to share. I Skyped for an hour with a new fitness entrepreneur on Monday to share branding knowledge because he gave me the fire to start a new Yes project that will allow me to properly say no to all the tiny things I do. Pick this book up if you need inspiration or to re-focus on defining your success goal getting.
