Here I am

I’m all for the Light the illumination that leads to liberation. My definition of holistic includes green juice and very loud rock n’ roll; pop culture and eastern mysticism; justified anger and deeply sweet empathy. I love the game of business and multimedia. I’m saddened by greed. I believe that generous people have more to give.

I think the best self-help is 

I hear a variation of this all the time — when I get off stage, from readers, through friends of friends: “It was 11:30pm the other night and I needed something [soul salve, a kick in the ass, wisdom for a friend, a confidence boost for work…] so I went to your site and got what I needed. Really

 

Give me the hook that’s going to pull me up and out of the pain. Give me the comforting one-liner to clear my confusion. Caffeinate my stuckness. Give me permission to want what I want. Give me a diamond of insight that I can carry all week. Inspire me to go for it. Tell me everything is going to be okay. Please, be encouraging.

Really, I just want to keep offering “spiritual” backup. (I put spiritual in quotes because that’s a relative term if there ever was one.) I’m committed to being straight up, as kind as possible, and useful — right now. Now, when you’re in pain. Now, when your life is good but you know it could be so much better. Now, when you’re longing to take that hot heart of yours and really do something with it this lifetime.

I love the phrase Godspeed. It reminds us that the light is right here, in a flash, and that the universe is rooting for us.

Godspeed,

Danielle LaPorte-Freehand Signature+xo-Black

Brave Love

This symbol began as a rubber stamp carving that I did late one night about ten years ago. The heart-key, and an arrow, at first as individuals. And then I thought, “You need both to make it happen in life.” (The answer to so much in life is “both”.) Love opens the door – always. But to walk through the door – to make the most of the opportunity – you need focused intention. Still + Action. Feminine + Masculine. Receiving + Giving. So open your heart. And use your intelligence to direct your Love.

#Truthbombs

Total whim, these were. I wanted a place to express my, ahem, vast and profound wisecracks. I wanted to be encouraging in just one sentence if possible. I rolled out a few one-liners to my friend Steph and she said, “Well THAT’S a Truthbomb!” And here we are, #Truthbombs have turned out to be one of my most popular makings.

The Desire Map

Desire Map is my love child. It really poured out from my heart in response to seeing so many people running themselves into the ground for ambition (I was one of them.) Soulless goals make for a lot of…meaningless fatigue. The magical question is this: How do you want to feel? Nobody ever asked me that in school. Or my jobs. Or most of my relationships.

If I can inspire one more person to ask themselves that question, then it’s a very good day. And if The Desire Map can help someone hone in on their Core Desired Feelings – brilliant. And if their Core Desired Feelings become the driver of their life strategies – fucking awesome.

The Desire Map book has sold over 120,000 copies and at last count, is being translated into seven languages. We have 900+ Desire Map Workshop Facilitators and every week somewhere in the world, a Desire Map workshop happens.

This all came from a sticky note I put in my day planner a decade ago that started with: I want to feel….

Speaking + Events

I speak to audiences about what it takes to create lives of meaning, work that feels good to put into the world. Uncertainty- destruction – innovation.

I think many of us have the process of achievement backwards, so I speak emphatically about DESIRE: getting clear on what you truly want, and turning your definition of success inside out — which is how you create goals with soul.

Media hustling…meditation retreats. Raising capital…tea with the Dalai Lama. Traffic, launches, applause, failures — I have stories to tell.

“Danielle spoke at our most recent Texas Conference for Women and received rave reviews from our audience. She is completely lovely to work with and we would welcome the opportunity to work with her again.”

Amy Cooper Program Director, Conferences for Women

“Danielle is a force of feminine wisdom. Her honesty, energy and inspiration was a delight to behold. Our audience … left with the permission to be the kind of leader the world needs now!”
