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.

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?
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.
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.
is what this book should really be titled, but luckily for the author his fake persona and influence in the industry smooth-slides his drivel into the bestsellers list.
It was simplistically written to the point I fell asleep every time I attempted listening to the audio. I rather read blogs and get to the point of the issue athand. My time was wasted and I am now hesitant about the selection and ratings of titles on this app.
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.
"Can't believe I wasted my time and money"
Was very disappointed in this book.
It offered little practical advice and was very thin on real content. What little content there was, was stretched out to fill out the book.
Such a good read for such a short book, well worth the price
He describes a picture of despair that felt so native to me and then explains how he got out of it. Some great tips that I have brought into my life with good results so far!
Listened to this in one go
I have already began a journey to self love, after suffering with depression since my teenage years (I'm now 23) this year I decided to love myself more than any other.
This audio took my breath away and I cried a lot for the right reasons. I've been the girl that attends the seminars, reads all the books trying to fill myself up with all the knowledge possible to combat my negative self talk. It has tremendously helped over the years but the concept in this book is so simple. Oh if only I'd have known it was that simple years ago!
Alas, this book came in the my life and the exact precise time it needed to. I have practiced it yet but I KNOW this practice will change my life.
Thank you Kamal!
Kamal's voice is beautiful. I instantly felt happier just listening!
Having been a bit down lately, this instantly lifted me with a simple mantra: "I love myself"! I feel more present and able to enjoy the beauty around me, whereas in the weeks before I listened I was overloading myself with self help.
Just stop, and love yourself!
"Love is all you need"
It's so simple, but we forget it with the complexity of our modern lives. Love for yourself and others is all you need. When you're in darkness, move towards the light to transform your world.
A beautiful, humble and disarmingly vulnerable book. Very much looking forward to the next one.
Nice book. Simple to listen too. Enjoyed it. Will listen again. Recommed it for people.
"Short and sweet"
I loved this book because it was short but powerful. It conveys a really important message that everyone should hear about. I have recommended it to several people now. If you struggle with self doubt or self criticism, read this book!
A little gem of a book narrated beautifully :) Will be something I will re read.
"Good for the money and time listening"
It's a good book for the money and time you spend listen to it it's worth giving it a go but don't expect anything to ground breaking. Spends a bit much time talking about himself.
"So simple it is brilliant"
This short book might just be life changing, it certainly contains some very deep insights. But they are oxymorons in a sense that they are so simple to put into practice despite being profound. I really enjoyed this and would recommend.
