    One thought on “The Desire Map”

    1. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!! I. Response to the review before this one, I have something to sayybe she has no negative reviews because people actually LOVE this book, ever thought of that? #2 you didn't technically pay $170 for just the "paperback" book. You paid for paperback, the workbook, the audio book & MORE! Maybe it is a little overpriced BUT if your mind is open enough too even learn ONE thing that you can apply and change your life, isn't that PRICELESS??? Oh & using most information out [...]

    2. I really like the idea of planning goals, intentions, and actions based on how we want to feel. I buy into the idea of not doing something to just complete it but to consider how I'd feel during and after. But that is as much as I got out of this book. The "theory" half has no theory at all. It is a collection of notes written to oneself on post it notes combined into series of sentences and sometimes sentence fragments. Paragraphs were rarely more than two sentences so no thought was fully deve [...]

    3. Danielle why do you only ever talk in big font and fragmented sentences? I want to like this author, but I feel like she just yells out bullet points on a power point presentation on every page that are supposed to be ground breaking. They are not. They are, however, frustrating to read.

    4. I find it really weird how many 5 star ratings this book is getting (in such a short time - To Kill A Mockingbird, The Da Vinci Code probably have lower ratings if you catch my drift). Honestly, I am a fair critic of things and I have to say that this was a hard read (the layout literally gave me a headache - multiple font size changes and formatting anomalies that make your head spin).As for content, a lot of it falls victim to the "out there" veil that many poor spirituality books suffer from. [...]

    5. Well, I think I'm being super generous with 2 stars. I had low expectations with this book but figured I'd check it out on the off chance it was worthwhile. Not surprisingly, it really wasn't. The "advice" in here is all over the place: contradictory, at times against medical advice (she seems to blow off the idea of depression and anxiety as not needing medical attention), bizarre, slightly sexist, intensely privileged, poorly-researched or supported, all with a weird, vaguely-hinted at Christi [...]

    6. This book was magical. I've been in a weird place in my life, unable to know exactly what I want, so I found this book at the perfect time. The idea of this book is you're going about getting what you want, wrong. You want the things you want, because of how they make you feel. You should be going after the feeling rather than the goal. I had never heard anything like that, so I was very excited to read this and I wasn't disappointed. Narrowing down feelings and desires really did help me. I kno [...]

    7. I’ve never been good at goal setting because I’m not interested increasing my productivity, climbing the corporate or working really hard to get something I really don’t care about. I’m also leery of the find your passion and you’ll find your career genre of self-help. If ya’ll hear of any jobs needing someone to ride her horse in the woods while reading current novels and drinking red wine, please let me know. Every January I get bitten by the “best year yet” bug and find myself [...]

    8. Meh.I like a good self-help book, but I'm glad I borrowed this one from a friend. What a bore. It was just a mixmash of feel good, wishy-washy New Age appropriative, unexamined class privilege… Yawn.

    9. I wrote a testimonial on her sales page if you would like to read it there.I LOVE this book. Shifted the way I think about goals, striving, proving myself and desiresAD IT.

    10. I didn't fall head over heels for Danielle LaPorte or her writing style. I'm a skeptic. But the general idea she presents in this book has changed my world view and I"m constantly sharing the idea and applying it at work (I manage guest services at a wellness spa - this stuff is right up our alley). I found this book at a time in my life where I was trying to answer the question, "what do I want?" I grew up under strange circumstances and it was incredibly hard for me to define wants and give th [...]

    11. I read this on airplane rides, in hotels and in lobbies and in waiting rooms and it pulled me in every time I opened the Kindle. Even though I was in the mood to read fiction, I stayed with Danielle's desire map because I felt a strong sense of connection to the way she defined ambition and courage and wealth and power and all the things that move and stir our souls. I loved the expression of our wants by connecting to our desires, and I appreciated the examples to clarify her points, some of wh [...]

    12. Парадоксально, но книга мне скорее НЕ понравилась :(. Почему парадоксально? На первый взгляд идеи автора совпадают с моими идеями, которые я проповедую в моём "тайм-менеджменте от противного" - что надо планировать свою жизнь и принимать важные решения не в зависимости от жё [...]

    13. Danielle LaPorte is a Gemini and for me it is really difficult not to appreciate a fellow Gemini because I understand the complexity of our zodiac sign as well as my own jyotish. The Leo within me is a powerful and courageous creature addicted to change and reprogramming because I had to teach myself to trust myself after all the numbing predator experiences that I’ve endured, and for me now it is normal that I had changed so much into this breathing living person who is not a single bit the s [...]

    14. I can't understand why this book became as popular as it did. It is so poorly written and disjointed that it reads like the outline of a book or the author's notes for a book. Here's a taste:"Words. Feelings. Feeling words. Words that make you feel. Feelings that can be captured in words. We're going to honor the immense power of singular words. Every word is its own universe. Words have never mattered more than they do here." This is the intro to an activity, the directions for which come three [...]

    15. Not as mind blowing for me as it was for other reviewers. Basically the main take-away is to do what makes you FEEL good. Do some self-exploration to pin point how you want to feel (your inner desires), and then do things that bring about that feeling.I also wasn't a huge fan of the small text/layout nor the super informal tone, but that's just me. Also, hard to relate to someone whose yearly goal was to make a million dollars

    16. I've read many a "self-help" book and gotten, well about midway through and stopped due to lack of inspiration and a feeling of meh. The Desire Map felt like a bible - sacred, intentional, as if LaPorte dictated from the Divine and touched on Truth. Fantastic. This book will be gifted to family, friends and clients alike.

    17. This has been one of the most useful down to earth books I ve ever had in my hands to explore what I never wanted to see within myself. It guides you on how to deal with fear, anger and not to feel guilty about it. It realy helped me twist my way of seeing things for the better. And everything changed.

    18. A perfect blend of no-bullshit spirituality that helped as I formed my 2014 intentions. I'm taking The Desire Map with me for the year because I believe in its central premise: that we're not really meant to be chasing goals, only feelings.

    19. Reading non-fiction is hard for me. Reading self-help books is hard for me. I have to admit I did not do the workbook portion of this book. But I am claiming to have read it because I spent a lot of time on it, and I liked it, and it helped me.

    20. I struggled thru the main part of the book (disorganized, rambling mess), hit the worksheets, and couldn't take any more. Too fluffy for my tastes. I'm out!

    21. I've read many books on goal setting. The first one read years ago was Covey 's Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. That book changed how I viewed and lived my life, but the principles were set out very logically and clearly. The Desire Map is in stark contrast to Covey 's work. It might appeal to more of a free spirit type person that appreciates a looser way of coming to goals and decisions than I do. The writing was very stream of consciousness and wordy. I thought the author could have [...]

    22. Love the premise of this book: instead of setting accomplishment-oriented goals for yourself, focus on how you want to feel in your life (then, if you still want to set goals, you can anchor them to those feelings). I've definitely heard of this concept before, but The Desire Map makes it accessible in a really engaging way. I think it's a great message to focus on what's meaningful for you--what core feelings come together to activate the best version of your self--rather than creating goals or [...]

    23. I have been searching for the words that could adequately express the way this book lights me up, but it seems like they have escaped me. Except one. LOVE.I love this book. I love the way it guided me. I love the way I FEEL after reading and working through it. Love, love, love, abundant love. Love is what I gained from this book and what I want to pour out of me after reading it.The question was simple: 'How do you want to feel?' But it allowed me to also get to the heart of what I was already [...]

    24. I really, really, really liked this book & workbook. Danielle's message is nothing but light and she delivers it in such a gorgeous, luxurious writing style that you can't help but be swallowed up by it. Her main point is that instead of focusing on external goals, think about how reaching those goals will make you feel and use that feeling as your goal. (She calls these your Core Desired Feelings.) I think that's what we do anyway - just in our subconscious mind - but Danielle wants us to d [...]

    25. I bought the audible version of the book which was a great idea because. her voice is magnificent.I listened to the book driving to and from work and since the whole book was 6 and a half hours, I easily finished it within a week!I was already sold on the concept of core desired feelings but the process of going through each area of your life exploring your CDFs, while a little bit painstaking, is really good and necessary to do the process justice.Really pleased to also hear she has the same go [...]

    26. There are some parts of this book that I just thought wow and others where I thought please shut up already. There is definitely a new agey tinge to this book that may or may not resonate with you. On the other hand, the concept of this book is brilliant. How do I wish to feel? What are my desires? How can I achieve these feelings and what is standing in the way? On some levels it's so basic that you think duh, but then of course if it were really that simple everyone would be deliriously happy, [...]

    27. A woman I respect was raving about this book, so I borrowed it from the library. It had a few thought-provoking questions, but overall it wasn't really worth the time it took to get through it. There was a lot of fluff, foul language, filler, and awful writing. Philosophically, it's my opinion that this type of selfish thinking is one of the reasons our world is so messed up. Our lives are about more than ourselves. If more of us looked beyond the end of our own noses, we'd all be better off.

    28. I listened to the audio version, and that was a mistake (for me, anyway). This is the kind of book that needs to have a workbook, a journal, even a class. You need to sit down in a quiet space and be introspective, write notes, really think things through, versus listening to while driving, trying to remember the quotes that made an impression. I just don't think ultimately it would have made a difference though. I need help coming up with my goals and desires. All of that is somehow lost in the [...]

    29. I love this book because there aren't many books which focus on desires. Many people don't take desires seriously because they learned to be helpless, they don't believe they can achieve their desires, so they just conform themselves to not pursue them. This book lays out how we can use desires as fuel to achieve our wildest goals. Check out my summary karlbooklover/desire-
