    Hi guys,

    The book launched four days ago and the support from this community has been unbelievable.

    Thank you to each and everyone of you who ordered.

    Your support doesn’t go unnoticed. It truly is life changing for me.

    I’m already getting so many positive messages from so many of you who binged it (some of you in just a few hours!), and it’s just the best.

    Alrigthty, here is a podcast I did about a month ago in Montreal with my best friend and co-writer of Talk To Strangers, Mr. Derin Emre.

    Derin is just the best. He doesn’t hold back and in this one we go into where we went after leaving Yes Theory, what it was like tackling such a daunting project together, and our honest opinions about the book.

    Prepare yourself for one hell of an honest and hilarious conversation.

    Love you all!

    Hey all,

    Three days away from launch.

    And what better way to run this final mile than with my best friend and brother, Ammar. Aka Habibs.

    The man who has pushed me to grow more than anyone in my life.
    The brother with whom I’ve had the lowest of lows and the highest of highs.

    In this podcast we don’t hold back. We show you the hard parts of our relationship and we also share what we mean to each other.

    There’s so much here. Per usual, I think you’ll love it.

    Thanks for being here. Thanks for riding with me on this journey.

    Next time we’ll be talking, the book will be out.

    What a wild thought.

    Love you so much,

    Matt

    Hi ladies and gents,

    Wow wow wow.

    DECEMBER 3RD IS SO CLOSE.

    So crazy to think about. So surreal that the launch day is nearly here.

    If you want to take advantage of the preorder bonuses like our Live Q&A, raffle to join the launch party in LA, and signed copies, then make sure to preorder at http://www.seekdiscomfort.com/book before November 25th.

    If you’ve already ordered or supported in any way, I FREAKING LOVE YOU.

    Okay, now to the podcast.

    This is one of my best friends. You know him from our videos. This year Staffan Taylor became a full-time host and member of Yes Theory.

    He embodies the Yes Theory philosophy more than anyone I’ve ever met.

    There’s so much in this conversation that Staffan and I have never shared that will remind anyone watching and/or struggling that they are not alone and things will get better.

    Alrighty, that’s enough from me.

    Enjoy the pod!

    Love ya,

    Matt

    Hello you lovely people,



    What you’re about to watch is the equivalent of finding a never-seen-before species in the wild.



    Very few people have shaped Yes Theory as much as Tom. Yet no one outside of our inner circle knows about Tom.



    Tom is very private. He likes being behind the scenes.



    He’s like Charlie from Charlie’s Angels.



    Tom has also never done a podcast. So this is really really special…a moment I’ll cherish for the rest of my life.



    We recorded this conversation a few months ago in his home of Brighton, UK.



    I think you’re going to love it.



    -Matt



    PS - DECEMBER 3RD IS SO CLOSE. If you haven’t pre-ordered yet, you’re missing out on our Live Q&A coming up soon :) www.yestheorybook.com

    Hey everyone,

    So happy to be back with you.


    Two quick things:
    - We have a new book launch date: December 3rd
    - We will now be releasing two podcasts a week (Mondays and Thursdays)
    - With everything happening in the world, the guys and I want to give back financially to foundations focused on children affected by war. More on that soon.



    Alright, now this podcast…



    Ben and Dave, my two guests, are not only my close friends but also my biggest inspirations.



    When I was 19 I came across a show called The Buried Life. It was about four best friends (Ben, Dave, Duncan and Jonnie) crossing off their bucket list and helping others to do the same.



    The Buried Life became the seed and catalyst for Yes Theory, as you’ll learn about in this episode and the book.



    Getting to sit down with them to do this was a dream come true. 19 year old Matt would be bugging out if he saw this :)



    I hope you’ll get as much out of this conversation as I did. SO many gems!!



    Love,



    Matt

Seek discomfort with this podcast!

The Yes Theory podcast is incredibly inspiring. It offers uplifting stories and positive messages that encourage listeners to embrace life. If you're looking for motivation, this podcast is a must-listen.

Brilliantly beautiful!

After doing my Headspace meditation this morning, had time to play around and investigate other tools in the app. Found Yes Theory and scrolled topics. Came across one that sounded like what I needed, and low and behold it features Rich Roll! He is my #1 podcaster, the first one I found and became addicted to for my long runs. I am about to turn 60, and know I am itching for change. Thomas reminds me of my sons, all very witty and charming. The combination of personalities, the topics covered, especially addiction and being plant based, were perfect. Ryan Holidays talk about ego was icing on the cake.
Can’t wait to hear more Yes Theory and look into Iceman!!! Thank you.

A beautiful message

A beautiful message from some truly beautiful humans. Thank you for you honesty, your willingness to be vulnerable, and thank you for having the courage to ask the hard questions while simultaneously making us feel safe to explore these on our own. The Yes Theory community is so special, and I am deeply grateful to have found a family of healers and seekers like myself. We are not alone. Love you all 💗
