Do you make New Years’ resolutions? Set goals? This year, I am trying something different and using Danielle LaPorte’s The Desire Map. How would you like to feel when you acheive your goals, finish the book, the script, the performance? To avoid the emptiness of spending years only to find there is no there there, try her approach.
Here’s a quote that will resonate with many artists, particularly if there’s trauma in your background:
If you don’t believe you have the right to be here, there will never be enough space for your true self to show up. If you don’t believe that you’re worthy of having your desires fulfilled, then you’ll always feel more empty than full. No amount of focus or positive thinking is going to help you manifest and sustain your definition of success.
She gives suggestions on self-worth and many other aspects of the process. Please feel free to leave your goals, hope, aspirations for next year in the comments.
