Teleclass Recap: Danielle LaPorte on Tackling Goal Setting

“How do you want to feel? What are you going to do today, this week, this quarter, this year to generate your core desired feelings?”

In our March 27, 2013 teleclass, Danielle LaPorte, author of The Fire Starter Sessions, business strategist and inspirational speaker, discussed the idealogy of goal-setting and how to identify your core desired feelings: what she calls “Desire Mapping.” She explains how intentions affect goal-setting and walks through a brief desire mapping process.

Danielle encourages us to embrace the concept of “soul-centered goals—goals that come from the depths of you,” and to go about fulfilling them in life-affirming ways.

  • Thank you for sharing this – it’s perfect for my wig consultants at I’m going to suggest we all check out your facebook page in helping us reach our core work desire – empowering women with our wigs all over the world! “Success is not an accident – it’s plan!”
    When I started Godiva’s Secret Wigs 16 years ago, I was so fiancially strapped that I used to add water to my mascara wand. But, I believed that if every cell of my body was in agreement that my intention is to support my family & empower women with great wigs, the universe would meet me halfway with opportunites to “just do it”. Growing beyond the negative voices in my head helped me to keep setting larger goals. Our wigs are fantastic, clients love working with women who have “heart” and our consultants from Saudi Arabia to Ca love being “hair 2 help” all women!
