追寻不安

Matt 和两位好友有一个600多万订阅者的 YouTube 频道 – Yes Theory,我看过一次他们的节目,像综艺秀一样,三个年轻人在节目里通过大胆的策划和执行,帮助普通人实现自己的梦想。

前几天订阅了他们的 newsletter,收到的第一封就让我边看边点头。Matt 说他过去的5年半只做了一件事,就是寻找不安。

如果像感到满足,想要过上不可思议的人生,想要有值得骄傲的故事告诉孙儿,我们必须寻找不安。让自己越不舒服越好。

我知道他说的非常对,我也必须这么做。

以下是节选的原文:

My name’s Matt.

I’m 29 years old and I’ve spent the last five and a half years seeking discomfort professionally.

Making myself as uncomfortable as possible has quite literally been my job description.

Now, that may sound unfortunate, but let me tell you…I’m the luckiest man alive.

Discomfort has given me everything I could’ve ever dreamed of and more.

From a thousand wild stories, to a group of even wilder friends, to personal growth and fulfillment that can only come from putting yourself out there.

I’m not here to brag though. You’re here for a reason. You want to live an incredible life. You want to have stories for the grandkids. You want to go after your biggest dreams. And ultimately, you want to feel fulfilled.

“Impossible!” They’ll say. Just go to school, get a job, pay the bills and stop complaining. You’ve probably heard that one too.

Don’t listen.
