Every January the big question is what are your resolutions for the year. I became a fan girl of Danielle LaPorte’s when I read her book, The Desire Map, a guide to creating goals with soul.
Basically what is does is allows you to figure out how you want to feel, for what you want to accomplish. Those two can be one in the same in some instances. However, most likely they are not, and this primarily is why we may be let down when we drive desires by tasks versus feelings and emotions.
For example many people will have a goal to exercise to lose weight, some will stay the course but most will fail. What do you want from exercising or losing weight? Not just better health – put a feeling to it. For example I want to feel vibrant and sexy that’s the desire, and you may want to do several things to get there, but the pressure of task is flowing, it might be exercising, it might be buying a new dress, it might be monthly pedicures the desire will evolve over the year it adjusts. I won’t steal Danielle’s thunder on this, certainly check out her book and website – totally worth it.
My desire mapping is the tenacity I will open wide to what I want, without judgement. I will create the life I love and share it to make a difference for others.
I hope your tenacity for goals, mapping or resolutions gives you joy this year, even amongst the trying and hard times. Never be fooled it will all be roses, otherwise how do we grow?
Cheers to you for a great 2015,
