What inspired The Desire Map?
It's been incubating for a long time. About seven years ago my man and I were doing some goal-setting on New Year's eve, by the fire. And I stood back and looked at my plans and realized I was going after the wrong things, in the wrong way. Goal-chasing was burning me out.
Over the course of a few years, and with a lot of introspection and real-time experimentation, I scrapped the fixed goals and got clear on what I call my "core desired feelings" -- and then I got real about what I needed to do to generate those feelings. Essentially, I got myself some goals with soul.
It changed my whole approach to ambition. And I didn't become any less ambitious -- my dreams are big, always have been. But I became more anchored to who I really was and my decision-making got a lot easier. I let go of fixed goals. I pretty much scrapped my to-do lists. And I became so much more open to allowing what I truly wanted to show up in my life.
And it worked -- inner peace and outer success. More calm, more money. More laughs, more creativity.
What is so special about The Desire Map? Why should your fans be excited about it?
People are tired of proving themselves all the time. We have the procedures of achievement upside down. We go after the stuff we want to have, get, accomplish, and experience outside of ourselves. And we hope, yearn, pray that we’ll be fulfilled when we get there. It’s backwards. It’s outside in. And it’s running us in circles. Because...
You’re not chasing the goal itself, you’re actually chasing a feeling.
The Desire Map program is changing all of that. You could call it holistic life-planning. The inner meets the outer. The spirit drives the material.
