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.
In the last episode of the podcast, my Chief Miracle Worker, Chip Franks, spoke to author Akshay Nanavati about the profound benefits of utilizing accountability in our lives – and the power of having a dedicated accountability buddy – in order to help you achieve your goals.
Chip and Akshay also took things to the next level and even announced their own accountability partnership. If you haven’t listened to that episode yet, I highly recommend you click here to do so before you listen to this one.
Achieving anything worthwhile is difficult, especially when you decide to do it alone. Human beings are tribal creatures, and most of us can benefit from some form of structure and community to turn our biggest dreams into reality.
In today’s special episode (Part 1 of 2), my Chief Miracle Worker and guest-host, Chip Franks, is talking with our friend, Akshay Nanavati, about the game-changing power of having an “accountability buddy” — someone who challenges you to move beyond your comfort zone, provides you with the extra support you need, and helps you to grow and improve in order to achieve your goals.
When I first published The Miracle Morning back in 2012, I was thinking small. I was committed to sharing the daily practice that changed my life, but I was only thinking I’d sell a few thousand copies. But then I started seeing a flood of emails and reviews from people about how the Miracle Morning had enabled them to make profound transformations in their lives, as well, so I committed to a bigger mission of changing millions of lives, one morning at a time.
Then, I met Honorée Corder. She was a bestselling author and strategic book coach whom had published dozens of her own personal development books. After getting to know her, I asked her if she’d partner with me to co-create the Miracle Morning book series. And the rest, as they say, is history.
As the name implies, the Thanksgiving holiday is generally a time to give thanks for everything that we’re grateful for – but is there more to it than that? Can there be more to your practice of gratitude than simply stating what you’re thankful for while you’re gathered around the dinner table this Thursday?
In fact, there’s a huge difference between passive gratitude and active appreciation. People who practice active appreciation don’t just experience greater happiness in life – they have the power to change their brains for the better.
