“Can you remember who you were before the world told you who you should be?” ~ Danielle LaPorte, author of The Desire Map
This is a question that most of us will probably answer ‘No’ to. Throughout our lives we are told what we ‘should’ to do by our parents, relatives, teachers and even our friends. Most of the time this is well meant but it doesn’t mean we have to become who they want us to be.
The Desire Map is a way of getting back to the centre of who you really are and what you really want out of life. It helps you discover your core desired feelings and then use those to inform daily choices in all aspects of life – including your business.
I’m Holly Hinton, a Licensed Desire Map Facilitator – one of only around 20 facilitators in the UK and the only one based in the Midlands. The Desire Map changed my life completely and it is now the compass for my personal life and businesses.
At the heart of it all? A commitment to feeling good.
Cynics would say that choosing to place your focus on feeling good is silly – maybe even selfish (don’t even get me started on that topic!). But I and thousands of other Desire Mappers around the globe know better. Because who wants to live a life that doesn’t feel good?
Who wants to work in a job that sucks their life force?
Who wants to be in relationships where they don’t feel nourished and honoured?
Who wants to feel bored in their own life?
Not me, and I am pretty sure, not you.
The Desire Map taught me how to make better choices by making decisions based on my core desired feelings. And that boils down to living a live that feels good to live.
I am thrilled to be running workshops throughout 2016 in Staffordshire and Derbyshire to help you discover what really lights you up and makes you tick. And if you can’t make the dates on offer, I also run 1:1 sessions via Skype or in-person.
“You will always be too much of something for someone: too big, too loud, too soft,too edgy. If you round out your edges,you lose your edge. Apologise for mistakes. Apologise for unintentionally hurting someone profusely. But don’t apologise for being who you are.” ~ Danielle LaPorte
