Set your soul on fire!
on November 2, 2014
I read this for my book club and thoroughly enjoyed it. I looked forward to reading a chapter (a session) and working on the exercise at the end of each session, every morning. That daily dosage of inspiration gave a jumpstart to my days. It felt like I was attending a workshop and not just reading a book. I could almost hear the author, Danielle, addressing me in her friendly, conversational style. I never felt bored. Instead, I found myself nodding along, highlighting most of what I read and adding my own thoughts.
She encourages her readers to be true to themselves. "Study yourself", "Find your inner voice" and "Do a little more of what you really want to be doing everyday, and a little less of what you don't want to do, until eventually, your reality is brimming with the real ideal" are some of her mantras. Her thoughts on time management, money management, giving felt so liberating to me, like like I'd been doing what didn't come naturally to me, until now
Answering the questionnaires at the end of each session helped me learn so much about myself. Doing the "Ideal Day" exercise made me realize that I was already almost-living my ideal life; The questions at the end of money management chapter showed me that my needs are pretty simple and that I had enough money to spend on things that truly matter to me- Education and Travel.
I highly recommend this book to anybody who "didn't sign up for good enough in this lifetime", as the author says, :You signed up for awesome". I know I did.
