Who’s the one person that you can count on to love you? The answer, yourself!
I just finished reading Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends on It. It was recommended to me in a training course that I’m currently taking. So, now, I will take this opportunity to give my review of it while it’s still fresh in my mind.
Overall the book was an easy read with one purpose. How the author started to love himself to change his life, and that you can too.
Broken down into three parts, Part I: The Vow. Part II: The Manual. Part III: The Lesson, this book is well organized.
Part I of the book is about himself and why this practice had to come into his life. This is where he decided that he had to pull his ass out of his gloom and doom and start to love himself. Many people fail to get to this realization, so, luckily, he did!
Part II, in my opinion, is the most crucial part of the book. This is where the meat and potatoes are. He gives you the steps he uses in his daily rituals. There are four parts, Mental Loop, Mediation, Mirror, and Question. By breaking the steps down for you, he shows you how to apply his ideas to your life.
My advice, if you don’t read anything else in this book, this is the most important to read. I feel you’ll get a lot out of this.
I haven’t tried all of these, but if they work like he states they will, maybe I should!
Part III: A lot more about him.
I figure Part III could have been shorter. It was more about him. Yes! I understand the book was about him! But I feel like he should have been two parts to the book. Part I: His story. Part II: How YOU can save yourself from your negative self!
Don’t get me wrong. Part III wasn’t all bad. What saved Part III for me was the tidbits throughout this section. Stuff like the power of commitment, where you put your thoughts – your body follows, the power of forgiving yourself, using “just my luck” in a positive way and not in a negative way. Those, along with other bits, were golden.
So, with that, my final thoughts. Was the book meaningful, and could it have an impact on your life? I think it could. If you feel that nobody loves you and feel and believe there is no way out for you, that is also a yes.
Overall, if you are into this book genre, it won’t hurt you to give it a try. You never know, this book may change your life!
Now, get out of here! And don’t forget to Love yourself today!
