Matthew McConaughey is known for many things.

His acting prowess, his uncanny good looks, his charming Texas drawl.

What I have never heard him described as is an inspirational speaker or a spiritual teacher.

So, when a coworker sent me this video, I had no idea what to expect. And, boy, was I shocked.

McConaughey had me completely captivated from his first word to his last. He challenges our notions of happiness and describes what it takes to find true joy and fulfillment in life.

If you’re looking for a good way to spend your next 10 minutes, I promise you this is it:
