I love motivational videos. I can`t even visualize what kind of world we would be living, if there wouldn’t be other people sharing how they made themselves and their lives better. It`s people out there, who know nothing about my existence, who have made whole difference to my life. We need each other. We need those stories of others doing something more than the ordinary. We need to know that big dreams can be achieved and we need leaders to inspire us to try our best too, ultimately, for nothing less than creating a better world.
Its easy to stay on comfort zone. It`s easy to let your mind think bored thoughts and believe that life is just these ordinary days and nothing special is happening here.
Nothing feels special if you don’t make it special and give it a meaning.
My two soul saving routines has a long time been listening inspiring podcasts / motivational speakers to keep my creative soul inspired and my morning routine to get my coffee outdoors and spend a little while in nature. Sometimes it`s only 20 minutes, sometimes I have an hour, but it gives me constant joy to my everyday life and makes my life lived more intentional.
So, today I am sharing a very inspiring speech from Matthew McConaughey. Hope you get inspired! And also, from this week forward, I will share one motivational speech here on my blog every Wednesday.
First.. few words from the video…
“Happiness is emotional response to an outcome. If I win I will be happy, if I don’t I won’t. It`s an if-then, cause-and-effect, quid pro quo standard that we cannot sustain. Because we immediately raise it every time we attain it. See, happiness demands a certain outcome. It is result reliance and I say, if happiness is what you are after then, you are gonna be let down frequently and you are gonna be unhappy much of your time. Joy though, joy`s a different thing. It is something else. Joy is not a choice. It is not a response to some results. It`s constant. Joy is the feeling that we have from doing what we are fashioned to do. No matter the outcome.”
