The Unlimited Potential Show I Relatable Self Development

Oct 20, 2021

Through journals kept from his entire life Matthew McConaughey tells stories of wisdom, hardship, courage, and the lessons he’s learned along the way. Join us for part two of this series as we take a dive into “Greenlights”. If you haven’t heard part one we encourage you to go back and listen and join us when you’re ready! 

Welcome back to The Unlimited Potential Show! In today’s episode we talk about an important overarching theme within the book. That is the power of solitude, and why it’s important for each of us to take our time and really learn who we are. Through the stories of his past Matthew McConaughey has been able to relearn lessons from hardships or moments where he thought he had a redlight. But through a different perspective or “looking in the rearview mirror” he was able to see the good in what was seemingly bad. 

Listen in as we talk about the concept of viewing life as a verb and understanding that it doesn’t end the moment you reach your goals. It’s what McConaughey calls living for your eulogy and its a concept that has been talked about in various methods here on The Unlimited Potential Show. You’ll learn how thinking outside of the box and living life how you were made to is key in not only telling stories that are worth hearing, but also how you can spread wisdom and knowledge of your own.
