  • I think that was lovely and would love to hear Jamison speak a little too – just a hello would be good ;)

  • You are such a lovely and authentic person Matthew. Thanks for a nice video. I actually do this technique all the time, but never really thought much about it until I watched your video. Keep those videos coming. I hope to see you when you come to Toronto.

  • OMG once you said DMV a started laughing my bottom off its like that in houston too (and we only have like one or two locations for the entire city like the 4th largest city reduced to one or two locations!) the social security office DMV or basically anything the government runs it’s terrible experience.

    The smiling game is wonderful reminds me of the Book “how to make friends and other influence people” giving compliments without asking for anything in return that’s really Nice

    And Jezz Jameson you could have said thanks for the iced coffee on camera

    Lots of love

  • Matthew-

    Would you consider doing an episode about your parents’ parenting philosophy/approach/techniques in raising you/your brothers?

    Sounds like they have a good/interesting approach from the bits I’ve heard you mention or drop-in.

    Also, just thinking outloud – If young children had these habits of thinking and living instilled from a young age (and consistently as they’re raised), seems like it would compound the reach of your awesome messages ten-fold and inter-generationally….

    plus I would love to learn a better way than I know; would love to hear!


  • I remember what you said about optimism on Friday!
    I thought about it once again ♥&♥ this is what came into my mind:

    How about relationships? Why does not everybody enjoy romance?
    Are people too optimisic…thinking everything is gonna be fine?

    How about planet earth?
    The arctic has one of the lowest volumes of ice since records began!
    Are people too optimistic…thinking everything is gonna be fine with planet earth?

    How about all poor, wounded, ill, starving, left-behind, broken hearted human beings?
    Why does not everybody help them?
    Are people too optimisic…thinking everything is gonna be fine with them?

    How about all the endangered animals?
    i.e.African penguin, Asian elephant, blue whale, Goliath frog, green sea turtle, Grevy’s zebra, hyacinth macaw, Japanese crane, Rothschild’s giraffe, snow leopard, Takhi, tiger etc.)
    Why doesn’t everybody protect them?
    Are people too optimisic…thinking everything is gonna be fine with them?

    What does optimism do to relationships and what does it do here?
    Does optimism not do the same here?
    When people are too optimisic, can they see the truth and anticipate the dangers?

    Why doesn’t everybody protect planet earth & help all those unfortunate human beings & animals & plants?

    Why doesn’t everybody visit your live-event & save their relationships?

    Are people too optimistic…
    Thinking everything is fine if it’s not?
    Thinking everything is gonna be fine if it’s not gonna be fine at all?

    If people cannot or don’t want to see the truth anymore, our planet and everybody and everything is endangered!

    May I thank you with all my heart for everything you said on Friday! It was a very very very strong message and yes, I totally agreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee to what you said!

    To see the truth ♥&♥ to LOVE and to create PEACE is not only the hope for planet earth and for all human beings and animals ♥&♥ plants:::it’s the hope for relationships as well:)

    ♥God bless planet earth ♥&♥ everybody :)♥

    ♥People who called you a pessimist: hope one day they know you said the truth :) ♥&♥ visit your live-event :)
    May LOVELIFE hero Matthew Hussey save their relationships :)♥

    I wish you a truly lovely new week :)


    1. Conclusion:

      Matthew Hussey is definatly not a pessimist!
      He truly loooooooooooooooooves human beings
      and wants to help them! He can see the truth with heart! That is what I believe :)

    2. How about endangered plants?
      i.e. Akamas Centaury, Alfalfa Arborea,
      Antirrhinum subbaeticum, Bryoxiphium madeirense,
      Cornish Path Moss etc.
      Why can’t people protect them?
      Are people too optimistic…thinking everything is gonna be fine with them?

    3. How about endangered plants?
      i.e. Akamas Centaury, Alfalfa Arborea,
      Antirrhinum subbaeticum, Bryoxiphium madeirense,
      Cornish Path Moss etc.
      Why can’t people protect them?
      Are people too optimistic…thinking everything is gonna be fine with them?

    4. How about every problem that exists on planet earth?
      Are people too optimistic…thinking Oh such problems do not exist & if they know they exist rather call people pessimistic than learning & growing & saving humankind?

      1. People are capable of love and moral behavior. That is the true reason for their dignity.
        Protecting the environment only makes sense if it benefits humankind because the environment as such doesnt have a dignity.
        We want our dogs to understand us, we want our horses to love us back but they dont.
        So plants becoming extinct isnt a problem as such exept when we need them for medicine.

    5. This topic is so so so so so so so interesting :)
      Loooooooooooooove to talk about it :)
      You are fantastic :)

  • Matthew? Driving with your hand off the wheel because you’re so busy gesturing? I am never getting in a car with you.

  • This is something I never thought it would happen, walking up to my car finding a paper on the hood and obviously I thought it was a freaking parking fine but then GUEST WHAT it was… a complete stranger left a envelope saying this” you don’t know me but I saw that you needed your car’s left headlights to get fixed and I wanted to do something nice for a stranger because one day a stranger did the same for me. the receipt is in the envelope and all you do is to go by warehouse in al garhoud, dubai landmark: near wellcare hospital. ask for chris and they will repair it for free. all I ask for is one day you do something nice for a complete stranger.” :D
    She/He just made up my entire day to work. I mean the person who did that is a complete stranger BUT he/she just validated something to me which is that “Happiness is not a station you arrive at, but a manner of traveling.” —Margaret Lee Runbeck. It a person who is very kind hearted and honest with their own self which is something that’s lacking nowadays in alot of peoples’ lives. We get caught up in our everyday’s routines and we pay attention to the little things that has the potential to ruin our days FORGETTING that we have the key to either focus on how it can tear us apart, or look at the bright side and it as a challenge to use for anything that would cheer you up. Whatever you do, don’t get stuck on the one thing that ruins your day. JUST SMILE and be grateful. Life is too short to waste on NEGATIVITY. We ALL NEED TO believe in that Living simply, Loving generously and Speaking truthfully is the one of the assets to create a life that feels right to US,and NOT one that looks right to everyone else.

  • Last Thursday I had a similar experience. Had various meetings with clients and they were all having bad days. Most of them were in “Bitchy Mood.” By the end of the day, I felt drained… One may say I was pulled into their “Bitchy Mood.” So I vented on facebook about how if you are having a “BM” day, to just stay home or at least not ruin other people’s day. Oh dear people ganged up on me and kept saying that I was the “BM” for saying that. I received many hateful comments. I was amused.

    I noticed the hateful comments were coming from the people who usually have a negative vibe. They were all putting themselves as victims. Feeling sorry for themselves, how their world is so bad and thus they have the right to their “Bitchy Mood.” not only that, but the rest of the world must understand them and deal with it and be miserable with them. It reminded me of that saying,”misery loves company.”

    Then one of my friends who is going through a difficult battle with cancer, she posted, “When you run into those people Sandra, just make them smile.” She was right.

  • Really? Is that the only place you’ve experienced this? Please don’t become too Americanized. :)

    I love that you said you love your mum.


  • Hey Matt,

    you are so right! everyday what demotivates me most is seeing people as if under the grey cloud that they don’t make go away just because others don’t make it go away; just because people see that other people do it, they think it’s a right thing to do too. This energy sucks people in so that they can forget what they want in the first place… In the end people don’t know anymore what life and happiness are about! Time is wasted…

    Making other people smile, doing things for someone else rather than for oneself is what brings happiness! True happiness)))

    Everyday I keep reminding myself “Ilona, make your boyfriend smile, make your colleague smile, give some money to someone who needs and who asks for it! etc” I feel I’m becoming a better person myself) And I feel happier)

    thank you, Matthew, for reminding

    best wishes,

    1. He does, hes just not wearing it properly (under the arm). Better than nothing I guess…
      Maria, you’re right though, it is usually a good idea to apply safety measures

  • Hey Matt,

    This is exactly how i feel and how i go through with negative people. They end up adding me in their level and i end up fully depressed that i’m unable to get out of it where as they end up telling me to go to hospital and get shock treatment as well. They end up adding stuff that i’m crazy etc etc…

    I really need to avoid such kind of people as they make me completely negative and lower my self-esteem and confidence fully..

    In nature i’m a fun loving person, kind-hearted, jolly, pleasant, confident and happy-go-lucky… :)
    But my only weakness is that i’m too soft, tender and sensitive which leads them easily to put me down or take advantage of my softness and soft spoken nature. i’m 26..

  • I still think your tone of speaking with Jameson sounds too strict. But you probably play a game with this so that people do not stop commenting. In my opinion buying him a coffee makes no difference :-).

    Thanks for your story about what your mother taught you. This is so inspiring – especially since I have met her on the retreat.
    Yesterday I expereinced that it is much more beneficial not to sink down to somebody’s bad mood.

    I had driven quite a far distance to pick up freshly smoked fish, and when I arrived in the other town and I called the guy to apologize I would be 20 min. late because of the traffic jam, he did not even remember that we had talked the night before and that he had allowed me to pick up the fish late because I was from out of town.
    I was so shocked but I managed to remain calmn and I thought “if he does not sell you the fish now, you are still going to have a nice evening in this town, and maybe you will find a place closer to home for your next purchase”. So I remained calmn and polite, and by the time I reached his home (he had even forgotten that he had given me his home address) he apologized genuinely. He said he had worked for 13 hours non stop smoking and selling fish and he was so exhausted that our entire conversation had escaped his memory. He explained to me that he smoked fish only 3 times a year and he had forgotten how stressful that was and he would not have thought before that it is possible to forget an entire conversation that took place less than a day ago.

    On my next occasion I will also try to approach suggested by your mom, i.e. I will make a conscious effort out of getting someone out of his bad mood.

  • I have try the game a few time now and love it. However today was different I went to buy a phone today and the sale person looked happy but about minute in I released she was faking it. So I decided to make her smile and maybe laugh. I did both and was happy with myself. A little while later when i was paying for my new phone she started introduction me to every sale people that came close to her saying “this is Jessica is amazing and funny women” then onto how I made her laugh. I got a smile and laugh from every sale person in that shop as well as a free phone cases. Plus I walk feeling amazing. Just want to say without this video I would never have had this experience and I am very grateful to you and your team. I can know enjoy the small thing in my life even more.
