Few books have made as profound an impact on my life as much as Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It, as that one book quite possibly saved my life (literally). You’ll hear why that is today on the podcast, as I had the opportunity to engage in a highly anticipated conversation with the author of one of my all-time favorite books, Kamal Ravikant.

Most importantly, you’re about to discover why loving yourself – actively and unconditionally – may be one of the most important things you can do, if not the single most important thing. Few understand this as well as Kamal. After his company in Silicon Valley collapsed and the love of his life left him, he fell into a deep depression.

With his ego destroyed and his heartbroken, he made a vow to love himself, then set out to do it – and this work changed his life. He shared his journey in a short self-published book, Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It.

Almost half a million copies later, he joins the podcast to share how to take self-love from an empty-seeming platitude into a meaningful daily practice that has the power to transform your life in ways you may not even be able to imagine, as it has transformed mine.


  • Kamal’s formula for loving yourself – and how to make self-love something you have complete control over.
  • Why loving yourself isn’t a one-time thing, but has to be a daily practice – and how to integrate it into your life.
  • Hacks Kamal uses to reinforce positive mental loops, meditate effectively, and find motivation when he needs it the most.
  • What Kamal learned from readers by putting his email address at the end of the original edition of Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It.
