Publisher's Summary

The Fire Starter Sessions is an apathy-kicking, integrity-infusing guide to defining success on your own terms.

As the creator of DanielleLaPorte.com - deemed "the best place online for kick-ass spirituality," Danielle LaPorte’s straight-talk life-and-livelihood sermons have inspired over one million people. Bold but empathetic, she reframes popular self-help and success concepts:

  • Life balance is a myth, and the pursuit of it is causing us more stress then the craving for balance itself.
  • Being well-rounded is over-rated. When you focus on developing your true strengths, you enter your mastery zone.
  • Screw your principles (they might be holding you back).

We have ambition backwards. Getting clear on how you want to feel in your life + work is more important than setting goals. It's the most potent form of clarity that you can have, and it's what leads to true fulfillment.

    "Good but effort seemed forced"

    I feel the author truly believes and lives by the words written; however, the book didn't feel like a natural form of communication for the writer. There were places where I felt it was obvious she used a type of writing structure or strategy.

    In this kind of book, and the aura I think she was going for, it should feel a bit more free-flowing.

    "set my heart on fire"

    Danielle breaks through myths, sluggish motivation, and barriers I've used for years! She openly talks about love, narrowing focus, and chaos as needed parts of the adventure I am creating of my life. She is a dynamic narrator as well as writer and I hope that everyone follows her lead and opens to their own best life! I'm on fire and I start now.
    Me. PaSsports I am grateful to you!!!!

    "Some great ideas, too "New Age-y""
    Where does The Fire Starter Sessions rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    No idea how I would rank it since it doesn't really "fit" with my usual listening topics. This is the kind of book I might have preferred to have a hard copy of as I found the different lessons difficult to follow in this format.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending? There isn't one, really.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I found the narration to be distracting. It is the author reading it, which is cool, but she's so "flowery" in her writing and her narration just emphasized this point. It was actually really annoying.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I have to say that she really does have some inspiring things to say about doing what you love. This book motivated me to sign up for some classes on herbalism, a topic I've been interested in since childhood. I felt motivated to look at things I really love to do and find ways to incorporate them in a more serious manner into my life.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't get behind the "flowery" writing or New Age stuff, BUT this is a book I intend to listen to again. If you're into New Age thought, you're gonna love this book.
