Publisher's Summary

In December of 2011, I gave a talk to an audience of scientists, Pentagon officials, politicians, and CEOs on the secret of life and how I'd figured it out the previous summer. Afterward, people came up individually and told me how much what I'd shared meant to them. This book is based on the truth I spoke about. It's something I learned from within myself, something I believed saved me. And more than that, the way I set about to do it.

This is a collection of thoughts on what I learned, what worked, what didn't. Where I succeed and importantly, where I fail daily. The truth is to love yourself with the same intensity you would use to pull yourself up if you were hanging off a cliff with your fingers. As if your life depended upon it. Once you get going, it's not hard to do. Just takes commitment and I'll share how I did it.

It's been transformative for me. I know it will be transformative for you as well.

Best $3 I've spent in a long time!

It's a simple premise with a powerful message! A daily effort worth doing and I will try to incorporate this into my daily life!

Amazing

I'm a very shy person and this is helping me break out of my shell. I found tears coming to my eyes while reciting some of Kamal Ravikant's practices. We all need a little more love in our lives who better to provide that than ourselves. Thank you Kamal.

KISS

Keeping It So Simple!! Kamal, bless your heart for sharing this infinite wisdom. We tend to forget that simple truths are often the most profound. I have been feeling at a low point myself. However, a wonderful soul who is my possum friend, highly recommended I read this book. Really grateful she did. She shared the love! I will do the same. This was a perfect reminder of what I already knew deep inside. Just didn't really know how to do that. Nice of you to spell it out for someone like me. The universe has spoken. Now here I am making my vow to create the habit to love myself everyday.

Needed for the millenial

Millenials NEED to listen to/read this book. We suffer enough. Time to heal. As a black man and a millenial, I understand all too well what it means to hate oneself. I have always equated loving oneself with narcissim. I was wrong completely. On a completely different note, I notice that the tools he explained to use are the same exact tools I've used, to quit drinking and smoking 4 years ago. The same exact tools.

The repetition works because while a drinking stoner, I would often tell myself "I hate drinking and smoking". Every single day even if I was drinking and smoking. Like Kamal said, eventually it sticks...

Thank you for this Kamal. I was stuck in a self defeating purgatory, seeking validation from everyone else all while not understanding why I was so angry and lonely. It was simply because I didn't love self. I want to love everyone else, yet I couldn't because I wasn't finished redefining myself after quitting the alcohol and the smoking. I've since pinpointed my issues with self and will be applying every single thing you've stated. Even the ones I already knew. This book will be shared along with everything I've learned. Love, Steven.

It's ok. quick read.

I think it's a good book especially for people that haven't read many other books yet that go deeper into the topic. its basically a short and easy simple summary scratching the surface of a bunch of other books like Biology of Belief, the secret, E-Cubed, a new earth... etc.

Largely useless fluff

Repeat "I love myself" 2 billion times. The rest is just to boost word count.

Not for everybody

Appreciate you sharing your experience, however in my opinion it was not for me. I think whatever you needed to tell yourself to get through worked for you but truly these basic techniques of repeating mantras will not work for everyone. God bless.

Decent

Would definitely not pay 20 for this book, but if you need some reassurance, it's a decent read. Not sure all the hype around it, nothing he says is truly life changing, but reiteration. The idea that repetition can lead to truth. Remind yourself each day why you love yourself.

C

not terrible, but nothing earth-shattering either. Kind of reminded me of a less-gushy version of Louise Hay's Mirror Work ("I love and appreciate myself" bla bla bla). I'm sure you'll experience something if you do it. For $3, why not?

Sounds silly but it works in a strange way

You become aware of the thoughts in your head, things that you just auto pilot, I am aware now

life changing solutions should be easy

I am not sure why someone would give this book (essay) less than 5 stars.

I am a health coach. When I work with my clients, almost without a fail, I trace the onset of their health issues to a lack of self-love and gratitude for what they already have in their lives. While diet and lifestyle play a huge role in our health, our attitude toward ourselves can render even the best of our efforts useless.

When we transform this area of their lives, without a fail, we're able to get rid of even the incurable diseases.

Solutions to most complicated problems in our lives SHOULD BE EASY and common sense. This book fits that profile.

Thank you for writing it, Kamal!

Il se laisse écouter.

J'aime beaucoup les exercices de méditation. Ils sont simples. L'histoire l'est aussi en surface. Mais elle est surtout humaine.
