A note from Natalie: My team and I are taking a sabbatical for the remainder of the summer, so we’re bringing back some of our greatest hits for you to experience for the first time or enjoy again… Summer’s always a great time for catching up on reruns! We’ll be back in the fall with some amazing new episodes for you.
Today I’m serving up one of my all-time-favorite interviews with Danielle LaPorte, creator of The Desire Map: A Guide To Creating Goals With Soul, author of the bestseller, The Fire Starter Sessions, and co-creator of Your Big Beautiful Book Plan. Even though this interview took place in 2012 there is sooo much wisdom just jam-packed in here on finding your purpose and becoming who you are meant to be that I know you’ll love to watch it again, or discover it for the first time!
Danielle and I also talk at length about the process of creating a book. I know so many of you have asked about what it takes to write a book, so you’ll really want to tune in and hear what she advice she has to give on the topic.
Ready to start some fires? Here we go:
Here are some of my favorite gems from this amazing interview on discovering your purpose:
With authenticity, you’re always going to be a work in progress.
If there’s something that’s not working, it doesn’t matter how much money you’ve put into it, you’ve got to let it go and move on.
(My absolute favorite:) Your life purpose is what you say it is. (Click to tweet!)
The world needs what you’ve got. You’re important.
Believe that you’re quality and seek quality in your relationships.
Starting with the end in mind is really important for people who want to write a book but don’t know where to begin.
Writers need to write; your life is your content.
Whatever’s gotten on your plate is there because you said “yes” to it.
