Course Description

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 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.
Sign up now to begin your journey toward greater self-love and the many types of success that follow.

What are the requirements?

  • 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.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Understand what self-love is, what it wants, and what it does.
  • Accept yourself perfectly exactly as you are.
  • Experience joy, excitement, and satisfaction for simply being you.

What is the target audience?

  • 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.

Curriculum

Section 1: Love 301 Introduction and Overview
08:39

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.

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.

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.

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.
