"If you don't have self-love, nothing else matters. If you have self-love, nothing else is needed."

So, what is the purpose of life? Today, I want to help you answer that question by asking you to consider a couple of others:

What if the purpose of life isn’t about achieving or attaining anything? What if you already have the most important thing you’ve been searching for? 

I want to help you to discover the true purpose of your life and realize that you may already have what you’ve been searching for, for your entire life.


  • Why keeping good habits, achieving goals, and professional success are often just the tip of the iceberg – and how to focus on the foundation underneath.
  • The reason highly successful people don’t feel free despite how much money they make – and what they’re really looking for.
  • Why birth and death remind us of the true purpose of life – and the reason we often forget this in-between.
  • How to stop comparing yourself to other people and experience true, unconditional self-love – even in moments of profound adversity.
