Publisher's Summary

How do you feel about setting goals?
I’ve heard people say they feel energized, depressed, confused, terrified, pumped, ambivalent, lost...or all of the above. Here’s what I’ve realized: Our relationship to success is inside-out. When we make our New Year’s resolutions, bucket lists, big plans, or weekly to-dos, we’re hoping that when we "arrive" we’ll be fulfilled. Our hearts will swell as we cross the finish line, and then we can finally relax and savor our happiness. Except more often than not, that doesn’t happen. Even when we meet our objectives, we wonder if we aimed too low, or took too long, or if we could have done it better. And when we fall short, we come down on ourselves like a ton of bricks. So we make the next goal, hoping it’ll give us everything the last one didn’t.
It’s a self-defeating cycle that’s burning us out. How do we change it?
Here’s the whole cosmic, life-liberating revelation:
You’re not actually chasing the goal. You’re chasing the feeling that you hope attaining the goal will give you.
Every craving, aspiration, or goal you have - from what you eat, wear, and own, to all the things you want to create or do - is driven by a desire to feel a certain way. That’s it. And that’s where the Desire Map process starts. In The Desire Map Experience, I’ll share a process that you’ll use to transform the way you relate to every aspect of your life. It’s not about learning a new time-budgeting method, filling out a questionnaire, or making another list to stick on your fridge. Instead, you’ll get crystal clear about how you want to feel about everything you do. The Desire Map is holistic life planning. Here’s how it works:

We’ll uncover your core desired feelings - they’ll be your new North Star for living a soul-centered life
You’ll learn how to identify expectations you’ve picked up from your parents, the Joneses, the media, or the imaginary "they" you’re always trying to impress
We’ll use guided reflections to go deep into what your soul is trying to tell you through your core desired feelings
I’ll show you how to tune into critical signals from your instincts, your body, and the people around you
We’ll apply Desire Mapping to all the major areas of your life - livelihood & lifestyle, body & wellness, creativity & learning, relationships & society, and essence & spirituality
You’ll learn how to create practical plans with daily, weekly, and monthly actions that will bring more and more of your core desired feelings into your life
I’ll be sharing poetry, stories, and inspirational truths to help you stay in touch with the sweetness of life
You’ll make this process your own. It’s not a one-size-fits-all deal. You’ll create your Desire Map in the way that lets your soul speak loud and clear in every day of your life.
Feeling good along the way to your goals doesn’t mean you won’t need to work your ass off - but when you do, you’ll do the work joyously. You’ll be creating goals that are life-affirming, nourishing, practical, forgiving, and true to who you are.

Made me feel happy but put off by author's dishonesty

This is a good book and it helps you clarify your goals and it does raise happiness levels, if you like the law of attraction. But the author did put me off the book slightly and I started to dislike her when she tried to distance her method from the law of attraction and make out her method is new and unique. It is not. The law of attraction is not and has never been about envisioning 'things'. It has always been about feeling the emotion you get from having things or circumstances that you want. This book is good and a nice LOA refresher with some nice techniques. I'd have enjoyed it a lot more if the author had not felt such scarcity that she had to lie and make out she'd thought up something new. Do read this. It's well worth a listen, but skip over the bits where she compares it with LOA.
