Words with resonance. Testimonials that made me glow. And a couple surprise wildfires. Here’s a glimpse.

A trio of articles that triggered viral sweetness:

: the declaration of deserving…just because you’re here “What do you think you’re entitled to?” Believing in your implicit worth liberates you to create more value for the world you serve.

: 7 things I know about active letting go. (sure beats waiting.) “Active letting go” is not to be mistaken for “passive letting go.” Active letting go is a practice. It’s awake. And it’s somewhat delightful (except for the agony of it.)

: escaping? from what? your pain? or your power? Recapitulating the reasons for your hurts, and isms, and faults can become addictive in and of itself. Eventually, you have to stop picking a fight with your true nature and decide to seek the joy that underlies it All.

ga’head, make me blush

Got some praise this year that made me bat my lashes:


“Danielle LaPorte was impeccable on our stage. She infused every participant with magic, love and possibility. I am so deeply honored and grateful for her presence and her message. She is pure magic.” – Marie Forleo | CEO, Rich Happy & Hot

> Forleo and I are joining forces in 2011 to create an learning experience around creativity and sales…keep your antenna up for details.


“Danielle was a guest speaker for our World-Changing Writing Workshop, and she brought down the house. Our students rated Danielle #1 out of all the speakers in the course. Why? It’s a toss-up between her idealistic passion that fires you up with every word, and her concrete advice that you can put into practice immediately.” – Pace Smith | Co-leader, World-Changing Writing Workshop

> Oh, and my reward for being voted “fave speaker of the series”? The chance to share my segment with the masses — for free.


“Danielle LaPorte’s passion for her mission leaps off the page, and reading a few chapters of this book will ignite you into action.” – Gretchen Rubin | Author,The Happiness Project




Sometimes, things spontaneously combust — in a beautiful way.

With 900+ tweets, 3800 Facebook shares and 2,600+ StumbleUpons, the manifesto of encouragement took on a life of its own.

“Someone wants to kiss you, to hold you, to make tea for you. Someone is willing to lend you money, wants to know what your favourite food is, and treat you to a movie. Someone in your orbit has something immensely valuable to give you — for free.”

You want a tangible, spine-bendable book version? Wait ’til 2011 – it’s in production!
