I have a feeling this might change everything

How do you feel about goal-setting?

At the beginning of the year, is setting very clear + specific New Year’s resolutions super important for you? A family tradition, even?

Or do you hate goal-setting, swear it never works and don’t want to talk about it ever again?

Either way, I’m guessing you make plans. Long-term plans, like for a family vacation, career moves, house renovations, or short-term plans like what dress to wear on date night or whether to have a bubble bath or a shower. Big or small, we all make plans.

Well, here’s my big, bold statement: I think a lot of us are making the WRONG plans.

We’re making choices based on should’s, or because it’s what our parents did, or it’s familiar, and not because it lights our hearts on fire.

I’ve just finished reading/doing a program that has done exactly that. It’s called The Desire Map  by Danielle LaPorte. This book has changed the way I plan my life, the way I make decisions.

And what perfect timing, because with the holiday season approaching, New Year’s resolutions are right around the corner. I’m thrilled (and so relieved!) to get 2013 started with business and life goals that resonate with my soul. THAT’s how I want to live.

If that sounds like you too, check out The Desire Map here. I only recommend stuff that I truly believe in and this book absolutely fits the bill. Buy it for yourself. Give it to your family, coworkers, the PTA president. EVERYONE should read this.

The Desire Map is all about ditching the auto-pilot approach to life.

Because clearing the space for wide-awake living is just about the best gift we can give to ourselves, isn’t it?

Love,

Kelly
