Here’s the intro:

“To fall in love with yourself is the first secret to happiness.” – Robert Morely 

Love is one of the most powerful energies on the planet. We are born with love in our hearts, and it lives within us all. But some of us put so much focus on finding love and approval “out there” that we never get a chance to truly develop it within ourselves. We look for it in the external world–from parents, partners, friends, bosses, new people we meet, people we admire. If any one of them disappoints, devastation follows.

How many times have you been hurt because of someone else’s opinion of you? When we experience self-esteem only through the eyes of others, one unkind word or a bad mood in another can shatter our sense of self.

Are you feeling the love? If not, it is time to take our self-love challenge–10 tips and techniques to help you enhance your life by cultivating love from within.
