Join my CIRCLE OF FIRE Book Club!

I mentioned THE FIRE STARTER SESSIONS  in a recent post. In that last post I mentioned that I wanted to re-read the book in order to actually complete the sessions, so I have decided to start a Fire Starter Sessions book club, as well as do a mini-series on the blog to document my progress, this summer. 

For those of you that have never heard of the Fire Starter Sessions, a few nuggets of wisdom:

* Life balance is a myth, and the pursuit of it is causing us more stress than the craving of balance itself.
* Being well-rounded is highly overrated. When you focus on developing your true strengths, you enter your mastery zone.
* Screw your principles. They might be holding you back.
* We have ambition backward. Getting clear on how you want to FEEL in your life + work is more important than setting goals. 

In sixteen sessions, Danielle LaPorte asks you the questions that will push you to rethink your assumptions about what will make you happy. This is a training course for taking the leap of your life.

Having already read through the book once (albeit quickly - I am still a busy student after all) I can say that Danielle has created a program that can be mind-blowingly life changing - if you let it! In the end that's what its all about - YOU are the only one who can create the success and life you want (super corny, I know, but very true and something we need to remind ourselves of often).

So, with all of that said ...

I want to take the opportunity now to invite anyone else who is interested and willing to do the work to join my in-person and/or virtual 'Circle of Fire' book club! What do you have to do?

1. Purchase your own copy of the Fire Starter Sessions*
2. Download the worksheets from Danielle's website
3. Commit to doing the work this summer
4. Be willing to connect with the book club group on a regular, pre-decided basis
5. Blog or write about your experience (this is optional)

And that's it!

I am open to doing meet-ups in person (local Ottawa area only) if anyone else is interested {I think this could be really fun, especially if wine & cheese is involved ;p}, online through meetup.com or Skype, Google+, etc. If Twitter is your thing you can use the #FireSS hashtag to connect and document your progress.

STAY TUNED FOR MORE INFO - I will do a follow up post in May. For those interested in joining me in this experience let me know either in the comment section (include a valid e-mail address) or send me an e-mail or message on Twitter. In terms of start date for the book club, I would like to start sometime in June.

I've always wanted to start a book club, so I'm really excited about this and I can't wait to connect!

* If you are unable to purchase a copy of the book that's okay. Danielle offers the worksheets on her website for free, and a lot of the information in the book was original published as blog posts on her website for - you got it - free!
