Matthew Dicks | Tomorrow is a Lie: Strategies for Life Success. Seku Gathers

Dear People,


Joining us today is the multi-awarded and international best-selling author, Matthew Dicks. Matthew’s books have been translated into more than 25 languages; he is also a teacher, speaker, and columnist for Slate and Seasons magazine. 


Matthew’s truth emerges from a near-death experience in his 20s that made him realize he wasn’t living life at its fullest. In what he thought were the last seconds of his life, he didn’t feel fear, anger, or sadness; he felt regret. 


Taking advantage of Matthew’s talent for storytelling, we delve into the details of his awakening and the research that led to the creation of his latest book, “Someday Is Today: 22 Simple, Actionable Ways to Propel Your Creative Life.” 


We also talk about the importance of stories in people’s lives, how they can help us heal and overcome traumas, the need to remove negative people and toxicity from our lives, and why we must be kind to ourselves when trying new things.
