Lessons for successful life post-Covid

The Matthew McConaughey advice-giving role that seems most made for CNBC is his turn in “The Wolf of Wall Street” as broker and salesman Mark Hanna, and his “Fugazi” speech to the Leonardo DiCaprio incarnation of real-life “Wolf” Jordan Belfort.

In the film, “Fugayzi, fugazi. It’s a whazy. It’s a woozie. It’s fairy dust,” is what passes for valuable guidance. But the actor has been known to offer some more down-to-earth advice in real life, whether it be through a university commencement speech or his recent memoir “Greenlights.”

McConaughey recently joined CNBC during its @Work Summit to discuss fundamental life lessons he has learned in the Covid year which he thinks will be important for our culture as more people head back into work and regular contact with others — with disagreements certain to remain part of post-pandemic life. We should all be ready to embrace greater understanding of opposing views, McConaughey says.

And sounding somewhere between his “Wolf” character and a human being trying to prepare for a post-pandemic world amid a booming stock market and expanding economy, he told CNBC from inside his Airstream trailer that it’s still OK in 2021 to chase success — if done the right way. “I’m for money and I’m for fame, but how we get those things, how we treat others, how we treat ourselves, fills the soul’s account along the way, and that’s long-term ROI that I think CEOs need to double-down on more.” 

Here are some of the ideas for a better life that McConaughey shared with CNBC’s Carl Quintanilla. (And for film buffs, watch the full video above if you want to know how that “Fugazi” speech came to be a piece of movie history.)

1. Don’t go back to who you were before Covid. 

2. Learn to accept those we may disagree with.  

3. Find common ground through fact.  

4. Be a ‘meet-you-in-the-middle’ centrist.
