About this Episode

Dave and Jared continue the conversation with Matthew Ames. Here are some of the key points from Dave’s interview with Matthew:

  • It’s ok to experience negative emotions.

  • Be open to others who see something for you that you don’t see for yourself.

  • The single biggest predictor of whether you will get through adversity is the quality of relationships you have with those people who are close to you.

  • It takes a village of people to make something possible.

  • We greatly underestimate the ability of young people to be able to do things. We can have more patience to teach young people how to do things and to empower them.

Four of Matthew’s biggest learnings:
Things are how they are, this acceptance creates a foundation for peace.
Understand your why, your purpose behind why you do what you do.
The positive attitude you need to execute and to identify opportunities, especially when things aren’t going your way.
The value of relationships.

What does Do Life Better mean to Matthew: love yourself and love others.

Challenge for the week: ask yourself the question, are you happy with the relationship you have with those who are close to you? And if you’re not, what are you going to do about it?
