Live Your Truth

July 10, 2013

I set out to write a very different book – what I’ve learned about productivity, health, fitness, creating.  How to be your best on the outside.  Instead, this book rose.  About discovering and living your truth, the foundation within.  If you work on that, the outside is a natural byproduct.

More so than the last book, this one, I’m scared to put out to the world.  It’s personal.  It’s vulnerable.  A deeper dive.  But it’s helped those I’ve shared it with.  And it helped me.  So, as James Altucher taught me, I must publish.

I worked very hard on this book, gave it everything I had.  I hope that it serves you well.

Available on Amazon on Kindle and Paperback.

(If you want to read the ebook version, you don’t need a kindle device.  Amazon has free Kindle apps for Mac/PC/iPhone/Android/Windows/Blackberry.  You can download them here)

    Each time I picked your book up to read it, I felt like I was in that cabin on the Big Sur coast.

    It’s simple, poignant, and profound writing, my friend – well done. It’s an understatement to say that there’s a lot going on in my life right now (all good – just craaazy insane). Your book taught me to set aside some time to evaluate what’s really important. And to not give up on these incredible opportunities I’m faced with right now – no matter how challenging they seem. They’re merely thresholds, and your book made me seek them out as opposed to shirking from them. It made me want to reach down deep and live my own truth. To make a conscious decision to do so and to realize that it’s what life is all about.

    It’s amazing how many levels this book connected with me on. Thanks again, Kamal.

    Congratulations, Kamal! It’s an amazing and transformative book. And I should know, I’ve read it twice! I know your words will be my guide again and again. Thank you!

    Thank you for sharing your ideas again, Kamal. I’m one of those who were saved by your books.
    I was struggling in the dark room since becoming crippled by a disease. I had decided to stop feeling sorry for myself, but the harder I fought, the more I got despreesed. I was considering ending my life when I saw the cover of your first book on kindle. The books are so powerful that I finally start to see the light.

      Hi Makiko,

      I’m so so grateful to you for telling me that. I often question myself and this shows me that I did the right thing.

      The concept about light flowing it, it has changed my life as well. It takes daily practice, a commitment to ourselves. We are here for a reason, we are worth it, we owe it to ourselves and the world to love ourselves and be our best selves.

      Thank you so much for your comment. If I can ever be of help, please reach out!

      Your friend,

    Smile my friend, because you are changing lives. I just finished “Love yourself like your life depends on it” and it changed my world. Everything you said made so much sense to me… And though simple concepts, were also very profound and much needed. Thank you. 🙂

    I’ve only recently read your “Love Yourself” book and, as usual for self-help stuff, it hasn’t done much for me. I don’t usually write to the authors to say that their book sucks, and I realize what an unkind thing to do that is, but you come across as someone who’s given a lot of thought to your subject. So I honestly would find it most interesting to know your thoughts on something.

    You say in the book that “the truth is to love yourself with the same intensity you would use to pull yourself up if you were hanging off a cliff with your fingers.” But that’s assuming that everyone hanging off a cliff would desperately try to pull themselves up. But some people wouldn’t – some people would even let go, thinking “finally this shitty life comes to an end.” In short, my question is this: how to love oneself like that when there is no “like that”? You probably have something inside yourself to draw from, which psychologists would most likely attribute to a secure Attachment relationship with a primary caregiver, or something like that. What about people who have nothing in them to draw from?

      Hi Rgen, it’s actually thoughtful, what you said. Listen, in the end it comes down to a simple thing: commitment. To go all in on one core thing. To do whatever it takes to make it your single-minded focus. Will someone let go of the cliff, perhaps. We have our own journey. All I know is that in mine, I chose to pull myself up, and then shared how I did it. Turns out, I’m not the only one who made (and continues to) make that choice.
