Caution - read this page on true love very carefully. Your ultimate success in life depends on you not only understanding my words, but believing them enough to take action.
Where is the love? Does true love really exist?
What does any of this have to do with re-programming your brain for success?
Read on and I will answer these questions for you.

On my Home Page you may remember reading:
“Regardless of what you accomplish,
do you still feel like something is missing?”
It seems to me that many of us spend an entire lifetime trying to fill the emptiness inside and discovering exactly what it is we seem to be missing.
I have had some revealing conversations with many successful individuals.
They seem to have everything, including a wonderful spouse, great children, good health, an excellent income and wealth.
They have worked and achieved everything they “thought” would bring them happiness.
Yet, these individuals also had the same feeling there was more to life; something was still missing.
Unfortunately, most of us have been educated to look to others and/or material possessions to validate our selves and provide our happiness.
In the end, no other person and no material things are truly able to make anyone permanently happy. Sure, they can make us feel happy for a time, but ultimately we again start looking for lasting happiness.
Personally, I feel this is why so many people in what appears to be a great marriage stray, still looking for true love.
How many people do you know, who have said they will be happy when…
None of the above will make anyone happy!
Success is like a drug. We never get enough of it and always want another “fix” because we are hooked on believing wealth and success are the source of true happiness.
We have all bought into the American dream. We have been programmed by mass media to believe when we have more money, more success, more expensive homes and cars, we will all be happy.
Sorry to let the air out of that balloon, but this simply isn’t true.
The only part of you that will be satisfied is your “ego” and this will only last a short time. Almost immediately you will begin looking for the next “thing” to make you happy.
Why do people want a new relationship, new car, better career or a new home?
Look behind every goal you will discover the truth if you look deep enough!
Most of us want to be successful, happy, respected and appreciated.
Look even deeper and you will discover the hole inside you; the “thing” that keeps you feeling unsuccessful and unfulfilled is “lack of true love”.
You have probably heard “all the money in the world can’t buy you happiness” and thought whoever said that had to be crazy.
If you are unhappy and poor, when you win a lottery you are now unhappy and rich. Then you will spend all your winnings trying to find happiness, looking everywhere for the one thing that could fill the void inside you.
To give you an example of how much we are programmed with these incorrect beliefs about success, perhaps you have seen the bumper sticker on cars that read:
"He who dies and has the most toys wins"
The person who "wins" is the one who experienced true love, both from within themselves and from others.
The "toys" are only a measuring stick as to how successful you have been financially. Unfortunately, these "toys" have nothing to do with how someone really lived.
They had all the visible signs of success, but quite possibly were missing the one thing that could really provide happiness and ultimate success - true love.
First, realize that as long as you are looking outside yourself for true love or to receive validation (love from others, happiness, and peace) you will never be fulfilled.
Only when you examine your own life and look inside will you discover that the missing piece of the puzzle is true love for your self.
Self-love is not a selfish, egotistical act – on the contrary, the more you are able to love yourself, the more love you have to give others.
You cannot receive from others that which you are not able to give to others!
Also, you cannot give others that which you do not possess!
When you fully understand this concept, you will also understand the only true path to success and achieving the life of your dreams is to...
Learn to love yourself, validate yourself and be happy within yourself.
Believe it or not, this is “true love”.
Fortunately, I was given a fantastic book written by Louise Hay “You Can Heal Your Life
” which helped me realize I lacked self-love.
I discovered true love is already inside each and every one of us, waiting to be awakened.
I then purchased the “Love Yourself, Heal Your Life Workbook (Insight Guide)
” and continued to examine my life and learn even more about the tremendous effect of self-love on finding true happiness.
I also now understand the mind/body connection and why so many of us have physical ailments that resist medical treatment.
When you learn how to love yourself, you will have found for the first time in your life – True Love!
You will no longer go through life wondering “where is the love?”
Instead, you will feel the true love already inside you and see it growing daily. Instantly you will begin attracting others who are also loving and caring individuals.
The struggle you previously experienced while trying to fill the void in life disappears and for the first time, you understand your life with focus, purpose and excitement.
Success no longer becomes a struggle. You will have the quiet self-confidence of knowing all good is coming to you in the right time and place.
I am eternally grateful for the knowledge and education I experienced through Louise Hay.
There are no words I can write that could possibly improve upon or explain her work. Experience it for yourself. You too will be forever grateful.
Everything "worthwhile" that you will ever accomplish in your life is directly related to your own self-love (or lack of self-love).
If you choose to read only one book or do one thing to improve your life, I urge you to become familiar with Louise Hay’s work.
Loving ourselves and other people as they are, is honoring self and another's self and soul path. It is loving without judgment or reservation, awareness we are all part of God or the All. When we love without condition or restraint we connect in a profound manner with our own higher self. Life and events seem to flow to us in a more joyous and agreeable manner. Everything seems easy when living in unconditional love.
The ball is in your court. You can choose to allow old beliefs to control you and do nothing - or - you can make a huge investment in your future by discovering true love for your self.
