Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon.com
In this new evolution of my existence, I revisited my familiars. Abraham-Hicks, Wayne Dyer, Don Miguel Ruiz - - I'm sure you guys know them, as well. Their words, while valuable, fell flat for me. Meditation, yes. Being still, yes. Listening to the inner voice, yes. I listed myself to death - to-do list, action list, five year list, three year list, one year list, daily plan to accomplish the lists. Positive affirmations written on little yellow sticky notepad and placed everywhere. Big whoop.
I accidentally happened on The Fire Starter Sessions. I was cruising Amazon looking for some dog mats to lessen the dirt traffic into the house from the doggy door. Down in a little corner was The Fire Start Sessions, Look Inside. So, I did. It intrigued me enough to buy it. I also visited Danielle Laporte's website to get a feel for the author. The website is AMAZING! It's frenetic and energetic. The energy that went into building the website bounces right off the screen. It puts you in an amazing mood immediately. Takes you out of the mundane and the humdrum and instills passion.
Some of the reviews have said that the book is quippy, does not provide any real information, gives too much sass, and has everything you have heard before. I agree with all of that, but without the negative undertone. Danielle Laporte is refreshingly quippy, saucy, and sassy. Thank God! Someone put some personality into a book! Yes, Wayne Dyer's calm demeanor is wonderful (and I LOVE me some Wayne Dyer) - but I'm not calm! I don't want to be calm. I want to be fired up! I want to be passionate! I want my life to be a kick ass life! I want to be self-aware, but I want to be awesomesauce self-aware, not meditative self-aware!
Yes. At 42, I use words like awesomesauce. As a matter of fact, my kids and I text the word awesomesauce to each other.
In a nutshell, if you are new to the self-help game, this book is great! If you are a veteran of the self-help game, this book is GREAT! It is refreshing, it is youthful (thankfully!), it is powerful, it is motivational. It is fun without being silly. It is witty without being asinine. It is an inspiring beginning to get back to the core you, the authentic you, and reinvent your Self and your circumstances.
I also bought The Desire Map, which I will read after working through the Fire Starter Sessions. I'm excited about it!
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.
