🎨 Impressions

Why did I start listening to the podcast?

I really enjoy listening to Matthew McConaughey. He is one of the few actors where I have the feeling he became mentally stronger from his acting career and that he is a student of life. He is very introspective and I value that a lot.

Who should listen to it?

If you can appreciate the art form of the chosen words it is definitely worthwhile. Besides that, there is a ton of value in the content as well.

☘️ What I’ve learned

  • A good personal constitution is one of the most important things in live. This theme gets so much attention in multiple books I’ve read and podcasts I listened to. In this case, Matthew explains that in order for you to experience the mystical, and throwing yourself out there, without knowing what will come, you have to be very grounded with your own values. Only if you have a clear personal constitution, you can survive anything and you will have the confidence to explore the mystical.

✍️ Ending note

  • We are all dealt the same words in the dictionary. Some just use it, other create magic.
