Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It

With Kamal Ravikant

In 2011, the company Kamal Ravikant spent three years of his life and all of his money building went under. In the wake of this loss he became profoundly depressed, he couldn’t get out of bed, and he felt emotionally empty and physically ill. In his darkest moment, Kamal made a vow to love himself, which ultimately saved his life.

On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, I talk with Kamal about what it actually means to love yourself and simple ways that we can heal ourselves through self-love. We discuss why we need to give our mind the same attention we give our body. We also talk about how to get out of your own way so that you don’t sabotage your success and the four steps that can help you return to self-love, which Kamal refers to as The Practice.
