Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It Audiobook

Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It

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.

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.

    "Stunningly wonderful"
    Where does Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've read -- and practiced what I've learned from -- hundreds of self help and spiritual books. This one struck a nerve deep inside me. Such a simple message, but so poignant in its delivery. I will listen to this again and again. I so hope he records his other books...it sounds like he's sitting on the couch talking directly to me. No woo-woo nonsense, no hackneyed old goal setting and uber efforting. Just a simple message that makes clear the answer to all our problems...loving ourselves. I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!

    "Timely and Necessary"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it gets back to basics and to the root of what we need to remember to live magical lives that contribute to ourselves and all others around.


    What other book might you compare Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It to and why?

    "Live Your Truth" Kamal's second book. Same style, simple, easy flow, to the point.


    Have you listened to any of Kamal Ravikant’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The quality is great and Kamal has a very sweet voice.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It?

    What I like most about the book is the guts of the writer who is an entrepreneur in Sillicon Valley, a person we would not expect to come out and talk about love. A paradigm shift of sorts, and a brave one!

    Kamal has been on the floor, sick and bordering death. It was then, at the darkest hour, that he had an epiphany and this book is born out of it. I read it and felt the love flowing through me, the importance of the message, the necessity of it right now, in my life.

    I was taken aback by the the cover, but upon a second look I noticed that in this time of insanity we are living, where we constantly leave the mind unchecked and believe anything it says to be true, a time where contemplation and stillness are rare, loving ourselves is indeed necessary because our life does depend on it.

    ""Love Yourself." I just read the book 4 you!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    What a waste of an hour of my time. Okay, I get it; we should love ourselves. And the only bit of instruction is to sit down for 7 minutes a day listening to a song you like telling yourself you love you. How long did it take you to read that last sentence, because that's how long this book should have been.59 minutes of filler.


    Has Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, it hasn't turned me off, but it did made me feel duped.


    Have you listened to any of Kamal Ravikant’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He's got a good speaking voice. I have nothing against his performance.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It?

    Everything before and after he says, "Love Yourself." The rest of it was filler.

    "Lovely!"

    I do not understand the poor reviews of this book. It was a pearl. I am very picky about narrators and I LOVED that it was performed by the author. He was humble, heartfelt and displayed a vulnerability that can only be claimed by a Phoenix. Loved it. I'm incorporating the meditation into my Miracle Morning.

    "Gently eye opening"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Personally I related completely, thats exactly what i look for in books. His voice very soothing and genuine.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    It increased my interest on different perspectives of viewing self love.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    The author takes a personal method that worked for him and shares it. After reading it, i had to buy the audio for my long daily commute . I read it non stop on a bad night. It was like having someone by your side, helping you with your emotional breakdown and guiding you to a positive outlook. I personally LOVED it.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Nothing at all


    Do you have any additional comments?

    Would recommend it for those who are ready to change for a better.

    "I loved this."

    I love the way this was read to me, I felt he was just talking to me, yes from the heart and yes to his heart. For me this was a YES moment of course, I / we must love ourselves before we can love others. Enjoy :)

    "Simple and powerful!"

    I have read and listened to self help books and speakers for years.. This is short sweet simple and concise ! Probably the most powerful story and guide I think I have ever heard. Immediately a shift in the quality of energy and feelings within myself by simply repeating "I love myself" over and over. I have heard this advice before and couldn't connect or feel it , but Kamul's story and instructions-- regardless of whether you feel it or not-- just say it-- and something cracks open. Hope springs and flows. Beautiful-- I will recommend to all I know.

    "Awesomely simple- get started!"

    Wow!
    Every aspect of this shirt book is straightforward, simple and anyone can understand how to get started! No matter what your belief system...
    I am living abroad right now, normally a very outgoing and upbeat person. Something had changed within myself over the past year. I hadn't even truly realized "what" it is.
    It is THIS! I am now taking one step each day to return to living myself!! This has been SO inspirational and I will share it with anyone and everyone!
    Thank you !!!

    "More like a pamphlet than a book."

    I liked the idea and message of the author. Performance: not amazing, but nothing to complain about either, good performance. I thought it was super short. I finished it within two drives in my car. More like a pamphlet than a book.

    Great book and inspiring from start to finish. In a way all that is said is common sense, but sometimes you need to hear it from the right people to apply it.

    "Magical"

    Love this book, listened to it in 24 hours and planning to listen to it again and again.
    If it was read a little slower, it would be better, especially for people with different English accents like me.
    Loved the content, thank you for sharing!!!

    This should be taught in schools and shouted from the roof tops. It's brilliant and so important. If everyone applied this it would change the world.

    "Very uplifting"

    Having suffered from depression for most of my adult life , I look for ways to silence my inner critic and feel better about myself. This book certainly does that and I found it inspiring and more than that, it rung true.
    Within 24hrs of syarting my meditations I am already using his method to change my thought processes and feel better and more hopeful because of it. Thank you Kamal for sharing your idea and for your convincing and soothing narration.
