🎨 Impressions

Why did I start listening to the podcast?

Youtube shorts led me here. There was a short about one of his stories, and I find so much meaning in these types of stories that it got me hooked right away. I stopped what I was doing, searched for the whole episode and watched it for its entirety.

Who should listen to it?

Nick is beaming resilience and is a truly inspring person. It helps you to relativize your life. This episode is for everyone.

☘️ What I’ve learned

  • As with all other prison stories, (As with Papillon, Shantaram, Man’s search for meaning etc.) there is one common theme. No matter how bad life gets, you always have the freedom to choose, you always have the freedom of the mind.
  • If you reach a point in your life where you truly believe in yourself, you will radiate a certain charisma which will help you in the world.
  • Be good, smile and say thank you.
