Why Love Is Selfish

Seeing that last week was Valentine's, or as our children say it, Valentime's Day, we thought it would be fitting to visit a core concept that is integral to living an extraordinary life - love.

Although much importance, rightfully so, is placed on love, the definitions surrounding it and, how to achieve it are, in our humble opinions, incorrect and harmful to those who try to practice them.

Love is not a sacrifice, all you need, a duty, above reality, superior to logic (or different from it for that matter), unconditional, or any other poor philosophical construct.

Love is defined as the emotional response of one person to the virtues of another, the spiritual payment given in exchange for the personal, selfish pleasure which one person derives from the virtues of another person's character.

Love is something that you must earn and you earn it by becoming the type of person worthy of someone else's love. It is given freely and without question to those who deserve it.

The purpose of this podcast is to discuss the common misconceptions of love that may be holding us back.

Here Is What We Covered

  • Why love is important to living a great life and why knowing how love works and how to achieve is vital for you own self-esteem, happiness and life on this earth.
  • Why unconditional love is impossible to practice and why you probably wouldn't want to be involved with someone who did.
  • How loving someone else depends on your level of self-confidence and self-esteem.
