To love yourself right now, just as you are, is to give yourself Heaven. Don’t wait until you die. If you wait, you die now. If you love, you live now. -Alan Cohen
“Self Love” is a very popular term these days, it reminds me of how I heard “Enlightenment” used in the 90’s and “Self Development” in the 00’s. The terms and the jargon get really old for me. I think questions like this help us know where we really are in life:
How do you feel?
What are you experiencing?
Are you happy?
Do you like your life?
Are you successful in your business?
Once you have answers to those questions you can decide what path you really want to take in life, as it relates to your business, relationships or anything else in your life. Self Love can be a spectacular tool for getting in touch with the answers to the above questions. However, I ask you not to simply dismiss it and say: “Well, of course I love my self.” There may be several other layers to explore. I have been practicing some form of Self Love and Self Awareness in a real committed way for almost 20 years.The time does not matter as much the thousands of experiences I have had in actual practice. These help guide my life today, they help me guide my business, help me manage my relationships and all areas of my life. I am no saint, I am far from perfect, however, if I know anything is true, I know a real dedicated Self Love(or whatever term works best for you) practice is extremely beneficial to my peace of mind and the success of my business.
Phil and I did a show on this topic last night. It was a super enjoyable show to host, I hope you will feel the same.
Love Your Self, No matter what.
