The Golden Mic Podcast: Dying to Live (Part 1)

“I spent the vast majority of my life trying to fill a god-sized hole through hedonistic pursuits.” – Matt Hogan

Covered in blood and nauseated, Matt found a way to get help. It was a miracle that he was even alive. He had been shot from close range in the head, Matt heard someone say,

“You’re not going to die tonight.”

And the voice was right. Matt did not die. In fact, he’s currently flourishing in many domains of life.

But here’s the rub. It’s a big one.

Matt was actually person who pulled the trigger. He wanted to take his life.

In attempting to end his life, he realized that life was worth living. And he’s helping people like you and me to think about what it means to stop chasing success; to think about living the life to the fullest; to find a ways to fill that god-sized hole that so many of us are searching to fill

This is just the beginning of an incredibly deep dive in looking inward, in enjoying the moment with appreciation and levity, and in the buttons of our fifth-grade teachers.

This one is going deep!
