Feeding new wire thru conduit

One of the outlets in the kitchen didnt work last week and I just found that the hot wire is broken within the wall. I now need to push new wire thru the conduit from the outlet before it on the circuit... about 12 feet plus a few bends since its on a different wall.

I bought new wire as well as some lube for it. Any tricks, hints or suggestions before I start? Thanks!

There is zero chance that you could "push" a wire through a conduit. It mus be pulled. You can try to work a fish tape through; or you may possibly have to use one of the good existing conductors, and pull through 2 new ones.
