- Understand what self-love is, what it wants, and what it does - and thus, how to do it.
- Accept yourself perfectly exactly as you are - which forms the most crucial foundation for happiness & success.
- Experience joy, excitement, and satisfaction for simply being you and living your life.
- If you're ready to learn new perspectives and practice actions that generate greater happiness, confidence, success and self-love, then you're perfectly prepared to take this course.
You're bright, talented, motivated, and deserving, but SOMETHING keeps holding you back from the success you logically deserve in finances, romance, and/or life satisfaction. What could it be?
I can't say for certain - but I CAN say that learning what it means to love yourself and how to do so more completely is probably the best investment you can make in your happiness and success! I say that with confidence because love = life. Love is nurturing, healing, encouraging, instructive, and supportive. Love conquers fear and all other obstacles. Of course you already know this, but do you know HOW to love yourself more?
It's crazy that EVERYBODY knows that love is the answer, that it's the most powerful motivational and liberating force in the universe, yet virtually NOBODY really understands it or how to get more of it.
Love 301: How to Love Yourself is the product of 5 years of research on love and how to teach and learn it. It includes stories, explanations, and 6 types of application activities to teach you basic concepts and practices so you can:
- Do what makes you [the right kind of] happy.
- Do what's good for you and what makes you grow.
- Accept yourself and your life exactly as you are and go forward from there.
- Do what love does, and think and feel what love thinks and feels
- Grow more confident, attractive, successful, and abundant.

- This course is geared for people who want to be happier and love themselves better, and it recognizes that you probably have thoughts and feelings that get in the way. The course does its best to guide you through the process of implementing new life patterns, but best results happen when you make commitments and do your homework. Simply listening to the course may change your life and behavior automatically, but putting in the practice transforms you much more quickly and dramatically.
Welcome to the University of Love! You're about to learn to love yourself more than ever, and that means that all those elusive goals you've been chasing - happiness, money, romance, power, self esteem, etc. - will flow to you more automatically than ever.
Everyone assumes they understand love, but it's much more complex than they give it credit for. In the first place, the word "love" refers to a dozen different experiences. In the second place, simply memorizing love's definition doesn't activate it in your heart and mind.
Five years of comprehensive love research has led to this course, where I apply 15 years of professional education experience to apply and integrate key concepts about what self-love does, thinks, and feels with half a dozen application activities following each lecture.
This video acts like reviewing the syllabus on the first day of class. It explains what to expect from course learning strategies and the application activities that follow each video: stories/illustrations, key points, commitment, slider, discussion, homework, and resources, plus how to get a certificate from the University of Love!
After this video, you'll be ready to dive into the actual course material.
How can you know whether you need this course (hint: you do) if you're not perfectly clear on how well you love yourself already?
The self-love tests in this video (and the following lecture) measure your performance on specific love outcomes and use a Slider to show where you stand and how much you stand to benefit by learning more about how to love yourself.
If you score high, great! Congratulations! You're well on your way. If you score low, great! You're about to learn some truly life-changing perspectives and love techniques. Congratulations!
Record your scores and retake these tests at any point during the Love 301 course to show how far you've progressed.
When I got "lost" at five years old, it taught me an important lesson about the importance of loving myself. Well, actually, it didn't, but it should have. I had to learn many years later that if you don't first love yourself, no other love can save you, and this lecture explains why.
This lecture discusses how self-love compares to and interacts with romantic love, and explains the origins of healthy self-love, and what you must do if you missed that boat as a child.
There are 12 types of love in the world and "mature" love provides a foundation for all the best versions. This lecture reveals mature love's four main attributes, and once you understand them, you'll be equipped to reassess your relationships (including with yourself) to see whether they're based on this or some lesser type of love.
Love's next priority is your well-being, and once again, that may not mean exactly what you expect. This lecture shows you a new perspective on wellness which allows you to plan your life more lovingly.
The more you love yourself, the more you automatically care for your well being, but it works the other way around, too. The better care you take of yourself, the quicker you'll learn to cherish yourself.
Life can be difficult and frightening, and you can choose to move forward anyway or back down and "play it safe." This lecture explains which choice love prefers and why.
Love sees your potential and craves to experience it - on all four levels of your true nature. You may have believed that enjoying comfort, ease, and consumption is the meaning of life, but love has better plans in mind. It may not always be comfortable, but spiritual growth pays the most valuable dividends.
If you don't already love yourself, changing your heart and mind can be hard work! Old thinking and feeling habits do their best to hold you in place and prevent progress.
But learning to love yourself doesn't have to be difficult, and this lecture illustrates how to put your brain's built-in motivation system to good use and get it working for you and not against.
I got struck by lightning at scout camp one summer afternoon, but the real danger was lurking in the kitchen. This story provides a new perspective on why you ought to choose which thoughts you allow to run through your mind.

Kids often get obsessed with magic and illusion, but the most powerful magic is very real and you can use it every day. This lecture explains how to begin, how to make it most effective, and proves that you're already a skilled magician. It also discusses how your brain functions and why this magic trick works so well.
I saw a lot of crazy things on a five-week sailing voyage through two oceans (and you'll see some of them in this video), but the only sea monster I ever saw was swimming along the Florida coast. That experience teaches how you can learn to believe in yourself better, regardless of whatever "reality" you happen to believe about yourself up until now. This lecture suggests some things you ought to believe about yourself and why, when you pause to think it over, it's more believable than your fears.
One of the very first things love does is to accept you exactly as you are. This video persuades you to exactly that and explains why it's the appropriate and logical thing to do. That's far better than useless wishful thinking, dwelling on regret, and giving up.
You'll also learn why self-acceptance takes you further than self-criticism. What excuses do you have that prevent you from accepting yourself? This video will talk you out of them and explain why they're invalid.
Games are defined by their rules, and this lecture helps you analyze which version of "The Game of Life" you're playing. You can tell by which set of rules you're obeying. If you learn that you're playing the wrong game, you can change the rules or quit right now. By now, you know exactly how to play the Game of Love, and this video encourages you to get playing immediately.
Judgment is always a subjective experience, and this chapter helps you choose how to judge yourself by pointing out another of love's key attributes. You've probably been doing it wrong all along, and you're about to discover that you were good enough after all.
"Who you gonna believe," Chico Marx comically asked, "Me? Or your own eyes?" But have you ever considered that your own eyes are often the least dependable? This lecture explain why your subconscious mind distorts your sense of self and makes your deep fears come true, and that if you saw yourself more clearly, you'd find it easy and natural to love yourself.
This optical illusion reveals an important point about how you see yourself - whichever perspective you choose, you may be right, so which one would you prefer? This lecture encourages you to choose love's perspective. If you want to love yourself more, then do what love does and see the good in you.
Our brains are wired to make us emotional thinkers, but letting your mood dictate your sense of reality can kill you - or worse! This lecture explains why emotional thinking distorts reality and get in the way of loving yourself better. You'll also learn a few strategies to keep yourself safer and do what's best for you.
Why does something that doesn't even exist exert such influence about who we think we are and how we live our lives? A ten-foot-tall grizzly and a time machine demonstrate two of the five ways this chapter shows you how to change the past and set yourself free from fears, worries, self-doubt and shame.
Self-love is valuable beyond measure ... have you settled for a cheap imitation? Our culture is so confused about what love really is that we often get confused and adopt self-love counterfeits which seem nice at first, but quickly show their limited value. This lecture explains how to tell the difference between real self-love and its many cheap immitations.
When the wind died several miles from shore on my sailboat one night, I ended up doing things the hard way. Chances are, you've been doing lots of things the hard way, and this lecture contrasts love's natural motivation to will power's less effective approach.
