Danielle LaPorte: Finding Your Life Purpose


Questions and quotes from Danielle LaPorte‘s book titled Fire Starter Sessions.

When do you feel ahh-maz-ing?

What makes you ring?!

What activities cause you to feel useful, vital, better than before?

When do you have that “there’s more where that came from” feeling?

What feels so good and so easy to give, that you give it generously?

What do you do the best — that gives you a rush while you’re doing it?

If you could go to five conferences or events this year, which ones would you go to? What would they be about?

What could you talk about late into the night with like-minded people, without running out of things to say?

What do you want to be known for?


So many people are looking for it: their Big Life Purpose.

Becoming you is your purpose.

You are the very purpose of your existence. Realizing what lights your fire and floats your boat — that’s your life purpose. What else could it be?

It gives you a true joy (not the seemingly happy high that is fleeting, but the reliable, always-there kind of satisfaction) to rock that guitar, to make people laugh, to discover the world, to make things a little more beautiful wherever you go, to feed, to stir it up, to clean it up, to execute the plan, to bank the cash, to be a compassionate citizen, to explore nonstop, or purely to seek pleasure… then, that’s your life purpose!

Your life purpose is what you say it is.

Who could tell you otherwise?


“Criticism is something we can avoid easily by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.” -Aristotle

“If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.” -Saint Thomas

“Your genuine action will explain itself, and will explain your other genuine actions. Your conformity explains nothing.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
