Laughter is the Best Medicine

Matthew McConaughey | 5 Minutes for the NEXT 50 Years of Your LIFE

I’m gonna talk to you about some things that I’ve learned in my journey Most from experience some of them I heard in passing Many of them I’m still practicing, but all of them I do believe are true Life is not easy. It is not. Don’t try to make it that way. life’s not fair, it never was, it isn’t now and it won’t ever be. Do not fall into the trap the entitlement trap a feeling like you’re a victim You are not get over it and get on with it So the question that we gotta ask ourselves is what success is to us? what success is to you? Is it more money? That’s fine? I got nothing against money Maybe it’s a healthy family. Maybe it’s a happy marriage. Maybe it’s to help others to be famous, to be spiritually sound Leave the world a little bit better place than you found it Continue to ask yourself that question now your answer may change over time and that’s fine but do yourself this favor Whatever your answer is don’t choose anything that will jeopardize yourself Prioritize who you are who you want to be and don’t spend time with anything that antagonizes your character Be brave take the hill, but first answer that question what’s my hill? So first we have to define success for ourselves And then we have to put in the work to maintain it Make that daily tally Tend to our garden. keep the things that are important to us in good shape Where you are not is as important as where you are And it’s just as important where we are not as it is where we are Look the first step that leads to our identity in life Is usually not I know who I am. I know who I am. that’s not the first step. The first steps is usually I know who I am not. Process of elimination Defining ourselves by what we are not is the first step that leads us to really knowing who we are You know that group of friends that you hang out with? That really might not bring out the best in you? You know, they they gossip too much, or they kind of shady. They really aren’t gonna be there for you in a pinch Or how about that bar that we keep going to, that we always seem to have the worst hangover from? or that computer screen right? the computer screen that keeps giving us an excuse not to get out of the house And engage with the world and get some real human interaction Or how about that food that would keep eating? stuff that taste so good going down, but makes us feel like crap the next week We feel lethargic we keep putting on weight Well, those people, those places, those things. Stop giving them your time and energy. Just don’t go there. I mean put them down And when you do this, when you do put them down, when you quit going there When you quit giving them your time you inadvertently find yourself spending more time and in more places That are healthy for you. that bring you more joy Why? Because you’ve just eliminated the whos, the wheres, the whats and the whens that were keeping you from your identity Trust me too many options. I promise that too many options will make a tyrant of us all So get rid of the excess the wasted time Decrease your options If you do this you will have accidentally, Almost innocently, put in front of you, what is important By process Elimination. knowing who we are is hard It’s hard Give yourself a break Eliminate who you are not first And you’ll find yourself where you need to be Instead of creating outcomes to take from us, let’s create more outcomes that pay us back Fill us up Keep your fire lit, turn you on, for the most amount of time in your future We try our best we don’t always do our best our architecture Is a verb as well Since we are the architects of our own lives Let’s study the habits, the practices, the routines that we have that lead to and feed our success our joy Our honest pain Our laughter Our earned tears let’s dissect that, and give thanks for those things and when we do that guess what happens? we get better at them And we have more to dissect Be discerning choose it because you want it do it because you want to We’re gonna make mistakes You’ve got to own them Then you got to make amends And then you got to move on guilt and regret kills many a man before their time So turn the page, get off the ride You are the author of the book of your life

  1. I can't be the only one who feels like listening to Joseph Cooper from Interstellar rather than the real Matthew himself.

  2. yes nice, but for fuck sake:

    can ANYBODY please tell me just how to find your purpose/a goal in life?! I am 26 and have fucking clue what I REALLY want to do with my life. as he said, there are just TOO MANY options!
    it's really hard to focus on any direction for me, especially since I have had depression and anxiety disorder since my early teens. I hardly had the "coming of age" as I know it from friends or movies.

    now I have been struggling with the question of what i want to do with my life for over 8 years. it really takes its toll on my mental health, because none of us are getting younger and the older I get, the more I feel that I am wasting my time.

    I had always been creatively inclined, but never developed any proper skills. aside from that I have still often thought about perhaps choosing a creative major, yet again all I hear and read about these kind of working fields is, that they are super rough, risky and that of course less than 1% have a chance to actually be successful in that field, let alone famous.

    so I chose the supposedly "reasonable" path and chose that I somehow want to help people, perhaps through counselling.

    but deep inside of me I have the feeling I should be doing something "greater", something that leaves a mark on this planet.

    I don't know, I am just overwhelmed and anxious about everything.

    I yearn for a solution, a path. I'd be happy to walk it.

  3. Don't know how I got here, but I couldn't make it to the end of the video. I hate this motivational bullshit, it's so contrived. We all know how to live a good life, but unfortunately humans are mostly weak and flawed. I just know I don't need some Hollywood A list douchebag shoving his shit down my throat. I plough my own furrow

  4. just stop everyone. think for yourself, that is what he is trying to say. but you fall into the modern day bullshit. you choose your own misery….table for crazy, yes that is your dumbass who can no longer think for themselves. instead listen to this guy say, " alright, alright, alright. .." with a stupid explication of alright. …THINK PEOPLE

  5. Free porn is the only thing i need internet for. I already disconnected all FB, Insta, Tinder, PornHub, Twitter etc from my phone. Will keep Youtube for Yoga babes channels, just in case… The rest…Gone!

  6. I listen to this on a daily basis and thank my higher power for leading me to this. Theres so much to gain out of this video and learn something new.

  7. Your life makes no sense. You are nobody. Go to work, and die. Dissect, blablabla… A few people got a destiny. And you're not among these happy few. So do what you want, it doesn't matter, nobody cares, it won't change anything.

  8. ALot easier said than done ..why does everyone think they have all the answers to life …its like omg watch this 5 min video and your life will change …its bs ..its extremely hard to change .

  9. I am willing to release what ever the f*ck doesn't serve me for my highest good and those around you I am willing to see who I'm not so I can be what I am.. thank you Mat thank you channel and messenger.. thank you

  10. A look lots of this shit, but this, this is THE shit, this is real, this is life…grtz from a Dutch man…i love you America, and this guy…

  11. Thank you Michael for that motivational messages. I wish that my brain would, "stop spinning." I want to be 'ALIVE' again and not be a victim of death. Not sure why your videos popped up and I know you dont really read these post; however, from my heart thank you for the "s*$! or get off the pot message. I'm trying, but my brain is crushed.

  12. I got evry word he said I'm so guilty of never leaving my room and staying on my tablet cuz idk what else to do. Thanks for this vid

  13. If you know that they're not going to change, you must change. And make sure you change for the better.

  14. I really like his speech of encouragement, We are the architect of own lives, Creating outcomes that pay you back, Spiritual sound…….I love it.

  15. I wish those of ANTIFA would take the time to listen to this but do more than that. Soak it in. Heed the advice. This world is very dark at times, but be a bright light to those around you.

  16. Hey you…. Yes you…. The one reading this… Something great is going to happen in your life….. You can't stop it… I've sent the good vibes already and they are about to reach you… ♥️♥️

  17. Life is neither hard or easy, fair or unfair. It is what you believe and make it to be. Bad premise to start a speech. Life is easy!! It's people that make it hard!! Stop making it hard!! Own your intent and make it right. Blessings brother.

  18. Humans and animals won’t be alive 50 years from now.

    Dr Micheal Mc Gregor and Earthling Ed list research data. Top Surgeon Doctor Garth Davis is hot on all levels.
    Spread the vegan word, it’s not just about diet any longer, but about us loosing oxygen in a alarming rate.
    We need to get rid of all animal production facilities, which is the number one cause of man made methane gases zapping our oxygen.
    The entire Vegan movement is creating millions of new jobs, we need all the plants to grow everywhere for our vegan foods to provide us oxygen.
    Vegan billionaires like Elon Musk and Bill Gates, Sir Richard Branson and more know, if this world doesn’t become vegan in 10 years, we are toast. They are talking about year 2050 to avoid global panic.
    Look and you will find already areas globally where without mask you can not breath.

  19. Do what you don't want to do respect to that which Gives you benefit in future but now pain. And have patience because it will take so much time to Be sucessful and to leave those things Which don't give you the output.

  20. Thanks very much more than this 👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌 idea but you so much more than this 👌👌👌👌🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹

  21. The best Friends and the best loves to gets the world wide so good idea but you so much more than this 👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞

  22. Profound things that came out of this: Don't choose anything that will jeopardize your soul, provided that you have a good soul. If you have a rotten soul then attempt to change. Don't spend time with anything that antagonizes your character. (provided you have good character). Take that hill…..Whats YOUR hill? This one I love: Where you're not is just as important as where you are. Damn right. The first step that leads to your identity is not: I know who I am but "I know who I am NOT" ie., "I'm not a thief, I'm not a adulterer, I'm not a racist." Get rid of the things that don't bring out the best in us, the friends, the hangouts, the computer screen, the food. Give time to things that bring you joy. You're gonna make mistakes, you gotta own um, then you gotta make amends and then move on. Guilt and Regret killed many a man before his time. So turn the page, get off the ride. You are the author of the book of your life. Some good stuff to ponder there. Thanks Matthew and Hook um Horns!

  23. Toooo much for me when i am dronk.
    But i am joker to you.
    Some days we all rise.
    I have.
    I don't have.
    One day.
    If you have faith.
    It will take you on its wings.

  24. Do these kind of videos really help people? I dont think so. An inspirational music, a person speaking like he/she discovered all the secrets ind the world and has full awareness.They always say, you are important, you can succeed and dont listen to anyone who says you cant.Never give up. Always the same shit. That is really stupid. If you dont experience anything, you wont be aware of anything and you wont succeed. These videos wont be your motive.

  25. Thanks for opening my eyes and mind… Feeling low and watching this… Afraid to loose my job because I am honest and have to take care of my mom… Guide me to fight my weakness and fake people

  26. Another worst thing is, even if they come to their friends or peoples, they become busy with their phones. 😂😠 Being close, but again no human interaction.

  27. You may inadvertently find out where your suppose to be by finding out first where you shouldn't be. Story of my life and is so true. ❤️❤️❤️

  28. Please I need help. I messed up with my studies and my parents are very disappointed with me and they won't let me continue my studies anymore. I'm losing hope. I want to change. Please. I don't want to be like this anymore. I want to succeed in life. Please…

  29. There ain't no yesterday..that's just a memory..There ain't no tomorrow..that's just a hope..It's just right now and what you do with it.

  30. Failure is not failure.
    Failure is not permanent.
    Failure is a lesson.
    After failure, success will come.
    This is not just a thought. This is my life experience.

  31. I have a channel and a new video in which I wrote an inspiring, motivational letter to teenagers. Feel free to check it out! I would very much appreciate it! Here's the link:
    I also have a blog about lifestyle, motivation and writing and just posted my first blog posts! Here's the link to my blog:
    I would love to know what you think of these!☺️Thank you!l

  32. I'm always among the folks who don't get shit. So fucking ordinary, like one more m&m in a bag full with a bunch of M&M's and I don't even like m&m that much. 🙄

  33. This video is wrong. I get this now.
    An enemy has shared this with me.
    I thanked him for that. This is all i needed.
    People cán change, aldough not all will. if you do not understand this, dont worry. just go on.

  34. I'm tired of these Monday morning quarterbacks who spout life's lessons like they have some sort of key to living successfully. If they were a B list actor who had been used up and spit out by Hollywood, no one would want to hear from them. Stop giving actors this credibility of knowledge when all they are doing is saying, shit turned out well for me. Shut the fuck up Matthew. You're a tard. People who need affirmations are weak and sheep. Come on people, get woke already. Don't tell me that if your spouse was telling you this same shit, you'd be like, get off my back already, stop trying to change me, but let Matthew say it and suddenly it's inspiring and life changing. SMH

  35. Had been on the top of my hill, now down the hill and see a lot of extreme phony mankind.
    I am still repairing my wings and trimming it into the average rather than who I am, because the life needs you to be like them rather yourself…………………..STF………………………….
