Matthew McConaughey and Vishen Lakhiani discuss the “Law of Resonance”, that is, the universe doesn’t give you what you want, it gives you what you are. But where is the line between fate and the effort required to achieve what you want. McConaughey talks about his experience with practically pursuing life beyond the classroom.
that reminds me of a spiritual idea from the Reverend Michael Beckwith. He calls it the Law Off Resonance. He said, The universe doesn't give you what you want. It gives you who you are. When you embody that, that's when the soul of the world bends to give you who you are heard. I like that now. At the same time, it doesn't mean you just sit back because you've been hustling since you started. There's this beautiful story in your book about how you went up to the dean. You were missing tons of classes in film school in Austin because you were actually out there producing, hustling, doing auditions. Tell us that story. Yeah, so I'm in the honors remind you. Let's go back to pre hustle. How do I get into film school? I don't have a film. I don't have any art to show anybody, and I'm headed towards law school. But I have a 3.82 out of four point oh GPA really high numbers high enough where the film school says, Well, jeez, that I have a GPA. Let's take this guy in so I get in. I'm in the honors classes. I get an A C. I'm starting to dabble in, like maybe a little hand modeling, you know, maybe going auditions for a music video. Here, there. I gotta Pedro, Remember the pages used to have in the nineties? They be, they tell you. Well, I'm being class from honors class studying film, and the page would go off and go. Can you be in Dallas in two hours for audition for Dwight Yoakum? And I'll be like, I'm out of here. Get up in the middle class and just go. Well, I started missing quite a few classes. And the teachers, the dean calls me. Look, you can't. This is an honors program. You can't just keep stepping out of class. I go, Dean, I'm not going. I'm not just pissing off out there. I'm actually chasing down practical work experience of work that you're teaching me that I'm learning in class and I'm chasing it down to real life and I go Look, man, if I just show up if I tell you, I'll be here for every exam. Can you just give me a C? Just enough to pass? And he just goes I didn't say a word. Well, I continue to chase my pager. I continue to go out and try and get auditions. Missed a whole lot of classes, but showed up for every big exam. And at the end of that semester, I got seized across the board straight, sees eso quietly. He understood what I was saying. That I was out there practically pursuing in life, experiential learning for what I was study.
