The Desire Map gives our goal-setting mechanisms a makeover by showing us that we must rely on our own feelings to navigate life, instead of giving in to the pressure from the outside world.

The Desire Map

by Danielle LaPorte


Danielle LaPorte's blog, which educates people about spirituality, entrepreneurship, and personal growth, was listed by Forbes as one of the top 100 websites for women in 2012. She's written three other books and also has a number of apps in her brand roster.

The Desire Map came out in 2012 and helps those frustrated with chasing goals without seeing results. Goals with soul come from the inside, not from the outside. Our own desires and objectives should help us first.

If your current process of balancing your desires and achievements leaves you unfulfilled, learn how to embrace a positive attitude towards your emotions so you can let them fuel your actions.
