Where The Hell Is Matt?

Updated: June 23, 2008

I thought I’d post something inspirational today, so here it is. This video is entitled, Where The Hell Is Matt? It features a guy from Connecticut who all ever did in his life was make and play videogames. Quite a dream job for some, ain’t it? Anyway, he was pretty much satisfied with everything that’s been going on until he felt that he’s somehow missing out on life.

And so on February 2003, he quit his job in Brisbane, Australia and used the money he’d saved to travel around the world. In one of his trips, his companion suggested that he do a little dance for a video. His buddy knows how bad Matt is in dancing and thought that it would be a funny thing to show their family and friends. In the end, what started as an uploaded personal video became a viral source of delight to people everywhere.

Personally, I take inspiration from watching him dance in all the different countries and places he’s been to. Contrary to what you might initially think, Matt is not rich. He doesn’t have a magical way to travel and did his trips frugally and pretty much the normal way. Furthermore, he shares in his autobiography that he was a very poor student and never went to college. But despite these facts, it didn’t stop him from pursuing a passion and realizing a dream.

Just like Noah Kalina, he turned a simple idea into something extraordinary. May this video inspire you to do the same. I believe that we are always surrounded with good opportunities. All we have to do is focus, believe and commit, and anything will be possible.

You can visit Matt’s website to watch his other videos and learn more about his story. Also, I wouldn’t have stumbled upon this video if it weren’t for Eugene who shared this in Plurk, thanks!

Lastly, I’d like to invite you to dance with me as we travel the world of personal finance and business by subscribing to Ready To Be Rich.


  1. Hi Rommel, I agree. Now I’m thinking of doing the same but instead of the world, I’ll do different provinces in the Philippines. 😀

  2. Thank you very much for the inspiration. I will definitely spread the GOOD NEWS to my fellow freemasons – a good number of whom have been living “ordinary” life.
