GIRL, I GET IT.
You’ve got some super dooper sometimes-I-can’t-believe-I-actually-say-them-out-loud dreams. And there’s a part of you that genuinely believes you can do it. You truly do! So you grind and hustle and work your butt off. A lot.
And then you don’t.
Because you’re overwhelmed and tired and scared and you start doubting yourself. You question if it’s worth it. Any of it. Switch priorities and focus on yourself again, or your kids, or your partner, or even your parents. But not your dreams – they go to the wayside. Then before you know it, it’s a new year, a new season, a new month, a new week, a new day and you’re ready again! Fed up with sitting around and just thinking about your goals, you write a new list and get back into it.
And the cycle begins all over again.
Sometimes you get there and achieve your goal. But instead of feeling elated…you feel empty. Sad. Confused. “Why am I not happy? What’s wrong with me? There must be something I’m missing. What if there’s something missing in me? I probably just need to do more.” So you write a new list, create some new goals. And again, you grind, you push, and you try to stay focused. Because you know you want something. You just don’t know what that is.
I KNOW, BECAUSE I WAS THERE.
I hear you loud and clear. It sucks. You’re so damn talented and you have so much to offer, and even though you beat yourself up about it, you know it. You know there’s more in you and it frustrates the hell out of you that you can’t quite seem to line everything up.
MY SECRET? THE DESIRE MAP*
“The Desire Map is a holistic approach to life planning that uses your core desired feelings as the guidance system for your goal setting. Over 125,000 copies sold and print in multiple languages.” – www.daniellelaporte.com
I like to say that narrowing down your core desired feelings (aka the way we want to feel) is like having a GPS in the palm of your hands, to help you stay on track for not only for your goals, but for all your decisions and your life in general. In other words, it’s basically the best thing ever.
Goodbye confusion. Goodbye indecision.
it’s a dream, joy and sanity saver
The life-changing nature of this system is exactly why I chose to become a Faciliator and proud affiliate. Because there is a better way – you just don’t know it yet. In my Desire Map workshops, I walk you through this transformative process, so you can find your way back to that version of yourself that doesn’t include incessant to-do, not-enough and better-do-more lists.
To feeling more joy TODAY.

LET’S TALK DESIRES. (SPECIFiCALLY, YOURS.)
When was the last time you stopped to think about how you want to feel? Not what you should be doing, or what others would like you to be doing. How you want to feel. Really feel. In my opinion, “How do I want to feel?” is the most powerful question you can ask yourself and it is exactly what The Desire Map is all about. As Danielle LaPorte (the badass creator of the The Desire Map) explains in this video, “Feeling good is the whole point.“
Try it now! Ask yourself, how do you want to feel…?
…when you wake up?
…when you get in the car?
…when you walk into work today?
…when you climb into bed tonight?
…in your body, right now?
SO, HOW DOES THE DESIRE MAP WORK?
This is the fun part! As a licensed facilitator, during my workshops I walk you through the Desire Map process. From looking at what sucks right now to all your wildest and most wonderful dreams! I teach you how to drill right down to your core desired feelings (the way you really want to feel) and then how to use those feelings as a GPS for your goal setting, for dealing with sticky situations, for changing your entire outlook on life!
Here’s the catch…I only run my intimate online workshops a few times a year. So you’ll definitely want to be on the waitlist to make sure you’re one of the first to know when the next workshop is available. Join the waitlist below, and I’ll send you a link to join my FREE community at the same time!
