Session 16 of Danielle Laporte’s Firestarter Sessions is the final session of the book – or is it just the beginning?
A Credo For Making It Happen
- “I’ll figure it out” is the mantra of choice. Accordingly, this buzz kill must be stricken from the lexicon : “I just don’t know what to do.”
- If you’ve never done it before, remember that everything you’ve ever done or has happened to you in your entire life and the history of humankind has brought you to this point – that’s a whole lot of life force on your side.
- If you’ve done it before, do it like it’s the first time. A beginner’s mind is open and an open mind innovates.
- Respect the fact that doubt is part of the creative process.Examine it as soon as it surfaces. Appreciate that it keeps you alert.
- Ask yourself what you’re going to give up to get where you want to go. You can’t have it all or do it all. But you can always have and do great things.
- Aim for passion, not balance. Balance is a myth. Passion will put your life into the right proportions that work as a whole.
- Tell people what you’re up to. When you declare it and share it you’re accountable and helpable.
- Don’t let the desire for perfection become procrastination. Every novel ever written might have been better. Every piece of technology, every masterpiece, every day – it might have been even better. So just launch and learn.
- Everything is progress. As any astrophysicist will tell you, the universe is always expanding. That includes you.
- Do what you say you’re going to do. This is the single most powerful behavior for sucess.
- Keep it pointed to where you want it to go. Do a little more of what you really want to be doing every day, and a little less of what you don’t want to do, until eventually your reality is brimming with the real deal.
FUTURE GRATITUDE W O R K S H E E T
You are in the perfect position to get there from here. —Abraham-Hicks
Next month, next year, or five to twenty years down the road, what or who will you be valuing? Why will you be filled with appreciation? Be practical or big dream-a-delic. For example: “It’s one year from today and I am so grateful that I own this new home with great light. It’s my birthday and I am rocking out in Buenos Aires. Next week, I’m going to be totally thankful that my dad and I had that talk. My health is excellent and the love of my life is by my side. It’s 2020 and my phone is ringing off the hook after winning the Nobel Peace Prize (finally!).”
What will you be immensely grateful for?
