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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Loved it from beginning to end"

    I just learned of Danielle LaPorte on an episode of Good Life Project podcast a few days ago. I was so inspired by her that I immediately purchased this book on Audible. Her voice is so soothing and loving. It really helps all of her powerful insights sink in. She shares just enough about her personal story and offers exercises throughout the book so you can apply her tools and techniques to your own life. This book definitely inspired me to reconsider some things and take action in areas I've been slacking in. I'm already excited to read it again. It's certainly a fire starter!

    Story
    "Subconscious"

    This is a very "right brain" type of book that has a thousand jewels scattered throughout a lot of rambling. If you are an intuitive person then you will likely rate this book higher. Im a very linear thinker so it's very difficult for me to process so many thoughts scattered throughout the book.

    This is a book that will speak to your intuitive subconscious. I was inspired several times while listening by the core principles that were being outlined. I would likely gain a lot if I were able to spend time with the author but my serial processing left brain couldn't absorb this many thoughts at once.

    This is the kind of book that can unlock your intuitive and creative mind. It's like one of those pictures that you can't see until you concentrate on letting your eyes unfocus.

    I may come back to it but if I do I'll make sure I'm listening while laying down with zero distractions. I think I could absorb the core principles much better that way.

    "Great advice. Unnecessary Vulgar."
    Would you listen to The Fire Starter Sessions again? Why?

    Yes, it was good advice.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Danielle LaPorte? Why or why not?

    Not sure, she seems to try to hard to be 'edgy.'


    Any additional comments?

    Less swearing. The F bombs made it unappealing to me, long term.

    Story
    "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!!!!
