The BBL office is all abuzz about a book coming out in April–The Fire Starter Sessions by Danielle Laporte. I’m not usually one for self-help books, but I was lucky enough to grab a copy, and “wow” is all I can say. Danielle talks to you like she’s your best friend who tells it like it is. There’s no beating around the bush or wrapping her point under layers of cotton-candy niceness. This girl is awesome and she’s on a mission to help you be as awesome as you can be too. I’m so excited to read more from Danielle, and share some more of her infinite wisdom with you, but for now here’s a sneak peek at some of her fantastic advice that so you can go to it and get started!
- Ask yourself “What would your life be like if you only did what was easy?” Yeah, it probably wouldn’t be that exciting. Make a point this week to try new things that might freak you out a little.
- Danielle says “Life is full of possibilities to feel exactly the way you want to feel,” and how true this is! This is something I often struggle with in my own life. So next time you’re faced with a difficult decision or an awkward moment, don’t let the situation define your feelings. Feel how you WANT to feel, and be true to yourself.
- Here’s one last tip: “It is often best to do the opposite of what your fear is telling you to do.” YES. There have been many times where I, out of fear, hold back or don’t take chances. From now on, take a moment to at least consider doing the opposite.
