We don't stumble accidentally into an amazing life. It takes a conscious commitment to figuring out what we stand for - finding our truth. It begins by looking inside ourselves, because when it rises from within, we have no choice but to express it, to live it. That is when magic happens: fulfillment, happiness, relationships and success. The question is: How? With meditat ...more

"Live Your Truth" is a a book that touches the soul. Kamal Ravikant's first book, "Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It" brings the reader from a place of difficulty showing the endless beauty life holds. Kamal explains that when you practice loving and appreciating yourself, you open yourself up to the incredible magic of the universe.

Although reading "Love Yourself" isn't necessary before reading "Live Your Truth," "Live Your Truth" picks up where "Love Yourself" left off--with the "Now

This book was given to me at the beginning of a difficult time (by someone I did not know well).... little did I know that life was going to get even harder and still is. I have just finished this book and I too will purchase it and pass it on to others. It reminds you why you are on this earth and how to live "your own truth." It might be a book I reread each year before January 1st. It's a reminder why we are here on earth, whether our time here is short or long. YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK!

"There is no should. There only is. And when you accept that, letting the emotion rise, the feeling crest and crash, say to it, “it’s ok. I accept you.” Even say to it, “I love you.” There is power there. There is freedom."

I love this one. But to be honest I feel like there were so many things to quote from this book, just one doesn't manage to crystallise the whole essence of it. The words in this book spoke volumes to me, and as I happen to have read it at a personally diffic

Biggest takeaway for me: find your truth - dig deep and discover your inner self and live it.

Changed my life literally

I chose this book because I had previously read "love yourself like your life depends on it" and was deeply touched . I couldn't get enough of the feeling I felt when I read that book so I purchased this one as well. I was deeply amazed by the simple message this book sends . You must honest and vulnerable with yourself to make magic happen . I will definitely remember this book for the rest of my life.

A very poetic, simple book that is perhaps best read a chapter at a time for full reflection. I appreciated the succinct and direct musings on life, perception, and the purpose we each discover in ourselves. Each reflection offers a new morsel to digest, and points to how we might see the world differently, discover our personal truth (i.e. that which would truly set us free to be our best), and live it fully.

Just what I was wanting to read

I happened upon this book by scrolling down on Amazon and choosing it from the “Other Readers who read this book, read these as well” section. I have been working on myself, my life and the nit picky voices in my head for over 2 years now. One day, it all clicked, and I have never been the same. Now, I read “Self Help” and “ Enlightenment” books like crazy. It’s like I’m Neo in The Matrix and I am learning tons of life truisms as he was learning Kung Fu and ho

Just what I needed.

Things haven't really been going my way and I was caught in the same mental loop for a few weeks. I read Love Yourself for a second time but had trouble applying it. I realized that I was rejecting myself and what happened to me, instead of letting it pass through and learning from it. Once I put it on paper, I felt lifted. Failure is the ultimate character building and I bombed it pretty bad. Despite that, I feel like I actually had a real look at myself for the first time

Live Your Truth is a feel good book with plenty of short, punchy examples from Kamal's life. The basic concept of living your truth is based on finding your truth, and while there are a few sentences on how to find your truth, this key step is largely left to the reader to discover. If you already know your truth, then this book is an admonition to just live it already!

Despite a lack of depth in assisting the reader with methods to find his/her truth, I liked this book. It was filled with poign

Wonderfully inspiring

Simple words, simple idea, beautifully packaged. This book gives you an amazing insight into what it takes to find and live YOUR truth. Its not a workbook, its not a How To, its Jamal sharing his story in a bid to inspire and ignite others on their own self discovery path. Beautiful read. Its short; read it. Lap it up. Highlight the good bits, there are many.

A total knock off of „Love yourself like your life depends on it“
First off he starts with telling how amazing his first book was (and keeps repeating it a couple of times) and he pretty much repeats everything he already said before.
Those tipps might be really useful and nice but if you read the first book it‘s not really anything special or new.
Aug 26, 2017 rated it liked it
Not a bad book but pretty generalized statements to be honest. I can see it helping people that deny the life they want to live. The part that I really liked was talking about how we are not the results of something we are the effort. When we work hard at something no matter the outcome that's what defines us not the end results

I was reading this at the same time as The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, and I couldn't decide which was better! I was also going through a rough patch at the time and badly needed a period of soul-searching. This was the perfect book, I have read it four times and it's still great. Thanks Kamal!

I was introduced to Kamal through this book, and all I can say is that I'm definitely going to pick up "Love yourself like your life depends on it", and read "Live your Truth" for yourself. This is a small book but made an enormous impact in my life.

Good read for those in need of some inspiration

This and love yourself were very helpful to me this year in learning to... love myself, learning to let things go and doing what makes me happy.

Simply put

I have read or heard a lot of these ideas before, but your delivery was very simple, and somehow drew all the thoughts together in a very digestible " meal." Thanks for your openness.

Honestly, I wanted to dive in, but I found his writing too self indulgent. His message sometimes resonated, and reading about his life was cool-ish, but I just wish he didn’t go on and on about how awesome he was all the time.

Eye opener

This book helps you understand that it’s ok to live your truth what ever it may be. I resonated with the writer and how he went through certain situations. Quick and great read.

As an aspiring writer, I'm deeply inspired

I like this book for it is very simple and easy to go along with.

This is his second book and after I finished it I immediately brought the first book to see more of his works!

Simple read. Nothing profound as the title suggests. In my case, it was the wisdom I learned in the past, (like getting over your fear, small steps, etc) put in a new context/words. Maybe it would be more profound to you.
