How do you want to feel?
Today? Tomorrow? Next week? Next month? A year from now?
How do you want to feel when you wake up in the morning?
How do want to feel at work?
When you eat? When you socialize? When you’re out and about?
How do you want to feel right at this moment?
What feelings do you desire the most in life?
I found Danielle LaPorte’s Desire Map through Kris Carr many months ago in one of her newsletters. I got intrigued and watched Danielle’s introductory video; it felt a bit what Peter would say ”religious”, but with me being very spiritual I did understand the greater message, and the flashing words ”How do you want to feel?” captured my deepest interest.
Though I have to say, it wasn’t until I stumbled upon Marie Forleo and finished the course that I went back to take a closer look when I felt I needed a new way of planning my goals. It’s always like that…
WHEN YOU’RE READY, YOU’LL COME BACK, YOU’LL SEE IT DIFFERENTLY AND KNOW A BETTER WAY TO TAKE THE INFORMATION INTO USE.
One of the B-School bonuses to choose from was Danielle’s Desire Map Kit, and of course it was on my mind. But I decided to go with The Wellness Warrior, which I have no regrets of. I felt that the Desire Map would always be there waiting for me. And so it did.
This way of thinking isn’t new but still mind-blowing. I mean, our bodies and minds are driven by feelings, we always know what to do to feel a certain way.
FEELING GOOD IS WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT.
Knowing how you want to feel brings up clarity in your life. And Clarity my love is what rules our hearts and so our lives. We have just lost that touch with ourselves, with our detailed goal planning; We think: I want a new kitchen, but what we really should be asking ourselves is: What would a new kitchen feel like? (this is very individual)
Because it’s not the thing we want, it’s the feeling it will give us.
THE JOURNEY SHOULD FEEL LIKE THE DESTINATION.
