Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It

Ravikant, Kamal has written this short book where there is not a extra adjective or word so you can concentrate in the goal of the book.

For my memories some of the topics described in the book:

  • Darkness is the absence of light, any negative though is darkness.
  • How do you remove it?, do you fight, fear or worry?Do you push or drown away sadness and pain?  Doesn’t work.
  • Look for the window, pull out a rag, and start cleaning. Just clean.
  • See the light of positive things that there is outside of the window.
  • Mental loop:
    • Repeat and repeat it, like a groove in rock created by water.
  • Meditation:
    • Music, 7 – 10 minutes, “I love myself”
    • Mirrow, 5 minutes.
  • Memory: reinforce the pathways.
  • Do the exercise about the thoughts that affects to you, differenciate if they are real or not real. Identify when something is real or when the mind is hijacked.
  • Surrender: “I used the fear as energy, driving me forward, pushing to achieve, pushing to succeed, paying no attention to my body, to the present, and I paid the price“. “Often, the price for not being present is pain“.
  • Real growth comes through intense, difficult, and challenging situations.
