Dear friends and readers, I am so thrilled to announce the release of my first book, The 52-Week Life Passion Project.
This book is the culmination of all that I learned on my personal search for life passion, leading me to my career as a coach and blogger, as well as my experiences with clients and my years supporting others in their passions when I was a PR professional.
The 52-Week Life Passion Project is a book of weekly lessons and actions designed to help you uncover your life passion and create an actionable plan to make it real in your life.
As you work through the book and undertake the weekly actions, you will begin to gradually shift from the life you have now to a life you create for yourself — one that is . . .
- more in alignment with the person you want to be
- balanced and prioritized according to your values and desires
- centered around purpose and meaning
- successful — as you define success
- exciting, energized, joyful, and passionate!
Each weekly lesson leads you on a journey of deeper self-awareness so that you gain more clarity on who you are, what you want in life, and how to go about getting it. Each lesson concludes with specific actions and assignments that you will complete during the week. The lessons and actions are designed to be followed sequentially so that you are working steadily toward uncovering your life passion and creating a realistic plan to live it in a way that works best for you and your life.
During the process, you will . . .
- learn more about the impact of your childhood on life passion
- examine the fears, limitations, and emotions getting in your way
- understand more about your personality, intelligence type, and creativity
- learn how to cultivate happiness and reconnect to joy and fun
- define your values, purpose, and a vision for your life
- find balance and learn to simplify to create space for your passion
- define a new model for work, relationships, money, and lifestyle
- examine, research, and test your strong interests and potential passions
- create focus, support, and accountability as you take action
- develop an actionable plan for making your passion part of your life
- have a new, exciting, more passionate life this time next year!
The book and workbook are currently available in paperback and eBook formats. (The Kindle and Nook compatible versions of the book will be available soon.)
Here are what a few readers have said about the book:
Barrie has a passion for passion like no one I’ve met. Her tools and approach actually helped me to solidify the impact I wanted to have on the world a few years back. This book digs down to a level on passion and purpose that most coaches simply aren’t willing to go, nor have the experience to effectively cover. Barrie asks the honest and surprising questions we never think to ask ourselves, which lead to the discoveries most of us have only dreamed of. I’m very grateful to have her in my corner! ~Scott Dinsmore, Founder of Live Your Legend and creator of How to Connect with Anyone
I’ve always believed that one of the causes of illness, discontent, and even depression is living life without passion. More to the point, we aren’t living our personal passion, the thing that makes us prick up our ears, lean forward in our seats and eagerly want to live. Barrie Davenport’s The 52-Week Life Passion Project, writes with remarkable clarity, heartwarming honesty and delightful creativity, is critical for anyone who wants to live a life filled with passion. This is not a dry “how to” book. This book is not only highly practical, but refreshingly inspirational. The reader senses that Barrie Davenport “walks her talk” and has actively been down road that leads to passion. ~Robin Easton, author of Naked in Eden
This book is a gem. As you move through it, week after week, you become the project. You answer questions—some not so easy, but I think that’s Barrie’s intention—to guide you towards your life passion, one challenging question at a time, so that you begin to truly understand where you are, how you got there and what might be holding you back from being somewhere else—somewhere that seems entirely reachable with Barrie’s book in hand. ~Katie Tallo, writer and filmmaker, katietallo.com
Barrie takes you on a step-by-step journey to living a life that brings you joy and passion. This well-written guide is easy to digest with weekly bite-size actions and reflections. In this guide, Barrie has prepared a way for your passion to simmer to the surface for you to grasp. ~Marci Payne, Licensed Professional Counselor, Liberating Choices
