Matthew McConaughey - This Is Why Youre Not Happy One Of The Most Eye Opening Speeches with Английский subtitles   Complain, DMCA

We've all got two wolves in us. A good one and a bad one.

Best I can tell we just got to feed that good one a little more

Happiness is an emotional response to an outcome.

If I win I will be happy, if I don't I won't. It's an if-then,

Quid pro quo standard that we cannot sustain.

Because we immediatel­y raise it every time we attain it.

happiness demands a certain outcome. It is result reliant. And i

You're gonna be let down frequently and you're gonna be unhappy

Joy's a different thing. It's something else. Joy is not a choice.

Joy is the feeling that we have from doing what we are fashioned

Now personally as an actor. I started enjoying

my work and literally being more happy when I stopped trying to

A means to a certain in. For example, I need this film to be a

You know, I need my performanc­e to be acknowledg­ed. I need the

All those are reasonable aspiration­s, but the truth is as soon as

The daily making of the movie the doing of the deed became the

I got more box-office more accolades and respect than I ever had

See joy is always in process. It's under constructi­on. It is in

Alive and well in the doing of what we're fashion to do.

And enjoying. The easiest way to dissect success;

You mean thanks for that which we do have, for what is working.

Appreciati­ng the simple things we sometimes take for granted. We

And that gratitude reciprocat­e. Creating more to be thankful for.

I'm not saying being denial of your failures. No, we can learn

But only if we look at them constructi­vely. As a means to reveal;

what we are good at, what we can get better at what we do succeed

We try our best. We don't always do our best.

And since we are the architects of our own lives.

Let's study the habits the practices the routines that we have

Our joy, our honest pain our laughter our earned tears.

Let's dissect that and give thanks for those things. And when we

It's a get-rich-q­uick on the Internet riches 15 minutes of fame

But we all want to succeed, right?

So the question that we've got to ask ourselves is what success is

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.

Continue to ask yourself that question. Now your answer may change

Whatever your answer is; don't choose anything that will

Prioritize who you are who you want to be and don't spend time

Don't drink the kool-aid man. It tastes sweet, but you will get

All right life is not a popularity contest. Be brave. Take the

What's my hill? Well for me it's a measuremen­t of five things. We

We got my health mind, body and spirit. We got career and we got

These are what's important to me in my life right now.

Because I want to keep all five in healthy shape.

And I know that if I don't take care of them if I don't keep up

One of them is gonna get weak man. It's gonna dip too deep into

So first we have to define success for ourselves.

And then we have to put in the work to maintain it. Take that

Tend our gurdan. Keep the things that are important to us in good

Defining ourselves by what we are not is the first step that leads

You know that group of friends that you hang out with that really

You know, they gossip too much or they're kind of shady.

They really aren't gonna be there for you in a pinch.

That we keep going to. That we always seem to have the worst

Right? The computer screen that keeps giving us an excuse not to

engage with the world and get some real human interactio­n.

I bet that food that we keep eating and stuff to taste so good

makes us feel like crap the next week. We feel lethargic and we

Well, those people those places those things.

Stop giving them your time and energy. Just don't go there. I mean

Because you just eliminated the who's, the where, the what's in
