I have been following Danielle LaPorte online for years. I have heard her speak in person, and been wowed. I have been the blessed recipient of three Pay What You Can days, with The Firestarter Sessions (which I then also bought as an audiobook), Your Big Beautiful Book Plan, and The Desire Map.
Turns out, I don't really like to read books on my computer. I prefer good, old fashioned paper. And so when the Desire Map was released in December of 2013, I ordered a paper copy for myself immediately, and because I was so enchanted with the program (and wanted to give back for all the lovely PWYC day gifts), I ordered a paper copy to give to a friend. Then the Day Planner for myself. Then the e-book version for a friend. Then the audiobook versions of the Desire Map Experience and Desire Map Daily from Audible, because I love audiobooks. Then 5 more planners to give away to friends. And 6 workbooks to use and give away to friends. Love, love, everywhere.
THE WHOLE PREMISE OF THE DESIRE MAP IS CRITICAL INFORMATION FOR THE SELF-AWARE.
Let me say it again: The Desire Map is critical information for the self-aware, and for those wishing to become more self-aware. I devoured the book in about 3 days, and then took about a week to feel my way through the workbook. And it's a complete game changer. A total 180 transformation.
1. How do you want to feel?
2. Set goals that will make you feel that way, through every part of the process.
3. End of story. (Sort of.)
Simple. Beautiful. Magnificent. Transformative. Danielle has tapped into something that has been spewed, yet in actuality, missed by the multitudes in all but lip service: it's all about the journey, not the destination. (OK, it's a little bit about the destination…but only if the journey feels the way the destination should feel.)
The Day Planner fits in so beautifully with the whole system of Desire Mapping. I now have someplace to put my to-do lists…and they no longer feel burdensome. They feel energized. My to-do lists are generated first and foremost from my Core Desired Feelings, and then from my year’s intentions and goals. So my monthly intentions, my weekly goals, and my daily to-do lists – they make me purely vibrate with a Soul connection I didn’t realize was possible.
Danielle has given voice(and such a beautiful, honest, Soul-infused voice it is) to a concept that has whispered to my Soul forever: I am more, there is a better way, this can all be deeper. She has painted the yellow brick road that will guide us each to the home of our own Desire. She is the Wizard, showing us that we each wear our own ruby slippers.

What made the experience of listening to The Desire Map Experience the most enjoyable?
Danielle has a calming, serene voice that is a pleasure to listen to. It almost feels like she is your friend, talking to you about this amazing approach, how you can flip goals inside out and learn to feel joyful, inspired, energized - whatever your Core Desired Feelings are.
What did you like best about this story?
I loved everything about this book from Danielle's authentic self to the enthusiasm to how I feel after I have been listening. Some books lull me, this energized and invigorated me.
Have you listened to any of Danielle LaPorte’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, I have listened to The Desire Map Daily, which is similar but a much more abbreviated version of the work. The Desire Map was all about immersing myself in my CDFs and taking a look at not only what, but how, for the next year.
What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?
The whole book is about the new idea to focus on Core Desired Feelings, rather than the "things" you want to achieve. Mind blowing inspiration!
Any additional comments?
I'm a Mapper for life. Although a positive person, The Desire Map has already changed me and my approach to life. I can't thank Danielle enough.

This is a good book and it helps you clarify your goals and it does raise happiness levels, if you like the law of attraction. But the author did put me off the book slightly and I started to dislike her when she tried to distance her method from the law of attraction and make out her method is new and unique. It is not. The law of attraction is not and has never been about envisioning 'things'. It has always been about feeling the emotion you get from having things or circumstances that you want. This book is good and a nice LOA refresher with some nice techniques. I'd have enjoyed it a lot more if the author had not felt such scarcity that she had to lie and make out she'd thought up something new. Do read this. It's well worth a listen, but skip over the bits where she compares it with LOA.

This book will touch your soul - Danielle is amazing at getting deep deep deep into your desires. I had to pause my audiobook quite a few times - just to breathe and reflect. I have never been moved by a book like this before.
Her voice is so beautiful - almost like a meditation sensation - it will take you to a place that you really need to go so you can answer the questions.
The layers just start to fall away - I love this book so much and would really love everyone to have access to it.
