Meet My Dad (Behind the Scenes Video)

This week I want to introduce you to my dad.

I attribute a huge amount of my success to this man, and for the first time ever, we’ve gotten together on camera.

The two of us bring back one of my favourite segments “Boring Heroes” and tell the story of someone who embodies the secret to becoming a passionate person.

  2. Emily says:

    Thank you for that beautiful Radiolab clip; what a wonderful way to glimpse the world.

    I love Boring Heroes! And all the playful stuff that goes into videos like this. Your dad fits right in and I’m sure everyone would wish to see more of him (not like that; sheesh). It’s very cool that your business seems to be built on a family Dynasty of Awesomeness.

    Wow :) i got an amazing team here…it’s comforting to know that your advises are not just ideas but it did came from genuine people with real experiences…making me feel safe to share my thoughts and spend time listening.

    I love this!!
    -God Bless you Matthew

  5. Goldberry says:

    Specifically him trying not to laugh at your bombastic style, and you clearly showing that you have a lot of respect for him. Very nice.

  6. Goldberry says:

    Whoah, your dad is extremely attractive, Matt. Your mom is a lucky woman! Also amusing to watch your father-son interaction. Your parents are both so grounded and happy.

  7. Susie says:


    It’s clear where you get your baby blue eyes from!! Am guessing the twinkle in them is all yours!!

    It’s only a matter of time before there is a round table discussion between all the boys in the family you, Dad and Stephen, with the sea or the pool as a backdrop – that would be helpful video all sharing your views on suitably relevant dating topic – just a thought.

    My everyday hero is any man who opens the door for me and allows me to go first, who is considerate/ caring particularly at rush hour on the tube in London, in England.

    That says so much – manners, respect and consideration – they show the quality of a person irrespective of whether they are a man/woman

  8. Sg says:

    You’re dad is spicy!

  9. Ann says:

    Love how you talk about having ‘tea’ and ‘tea sets’, so British and cute.

  10. Shirley Duval says:


    I simply love your dad and your mom is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing. Your segments are so great and truly informative.

  11. Kathy says:

    I met my Hero, thanks to you and your tips.


  12. Kathy says:

    Boring Hero…Should be renamed as the Everyday Hero.

    I had a small conversation with an attractive man regarding /concerning my car. I couldn’t find a part, asked him if he knew of a reliable site or store that would carry a particular item for my car. He took my phone number, and 3 weeks after calling back. Now 2 months of dating…thanks to you and your tips we are together. Might I add one more important note…he saw my note taking from your blogs and thought it was the most flattering gesture.

    Thank you so much, and I’m continuing to take notes because you provide many helpful tips.


  13. Jozi says:

    that’s very impressive!thanks for sharing!! :)

  14. Yvonne says:

    Your father is really charming. :)
    Idea: “Everyday Heroes” removed the negative connotation- just sayin’

  15. Rose marine says:

    Love your dad he was a great support at the retreat in St. Petersburg in Oct 2013. I loved his sessions.

  16. Margot says:

    Boring Hero 1 was also a hotel staff… And he also treated your mom. Your mom is a hero magnet. BRW, biceps looking good, Matt ;)

  17. Jacqueline says:

    With your father extremely handsome and your mother so pretty; the secret is out now why you are so gorgeous. Does he have any available brothers or cousins for me;) What a close and loving family you have!!!

    My mentor and hero was my beloved father.

    We can all be an everyday hero; the simplest action like smiling to someone out of kindness is a gift to them.

    Passion is most valuable. It completely fills up one’s soul. It creates the divine light within to do, to be, to pursue.

    Thank you for sharing the video ‘Moments.’ Touching, poignant and mesmerizing.

  18. Fiona says:

    ……what if she wanted cream in her tea?

  19. julie says:

    I was lucky enough to meet your dad up close and personal to assist him on stage at an event earlier this year which kick started my interest in gtg and he is a legend! I can honestly say that day has, and will continue to , change my outlook not just on love but on life. Thank you seems so inadequate but it’s all I can offer for now!

  20. Emily Giuffre says:

    Now I know where you get your good looks Matt :-) Thanks for bringing on your dad today!

  21. Marta says:

    Wow, your dad is even more handsome than you! & so cool. I wish I could hear him speaking more.

  22. Anita says:

    I was on the retreat in San Diego, & I can’t express enough to people how wonderful it was. I never thought that 5 days would completely change my life. Every single day just got better & better. I wanted to explode out of my body & take everything that life has to offer. I gave it my undivided attention & gave it my all, & practiced it during & after the retreat. Every time I went out of my comfort zone or implemented a pattern break, it was sooo worth it, & I realize that I used to waste time, but no more. I have no more fear. I walk into every room & say “they love me here” (with a British accent of course) & it’s amazing what happens. I have my “best friend” beside me, & we are unstoppable.
    I have met the most amazing people, simply because I magnetize positivity from others with my own positivity. I have determination & drive & passion in everything I do. There is absolutely nothing that I can’t do. The thing is- I’m not afraid anymore. I can try & fail & mess up, but that’s ok- I always get another chance. Every single failure is another learning experience that’s making me that much stronger. I even went to church this morning & the sermon, the misic, the atmosphere couldn’t have been anymore perfect. It was the icing on this delicious cake we call life. I have volunteered to sing in the choir, I volunteered to work with the kids. I am going to be a blessing to every single person that comes into contact with me. After church, I told everyone how wonderful the music was. I took time to talk to evetyone so they’d see the good they’ve done. I made an impact just by being a bright shining light. I know something that is so special & precious that I want every person in the world to have this knowledge. I will make the world a better place one person at a time, to absolutely anyone that will listen! Everyone should be able to see the opportunities that they never paid attention to before. Everyone will be able to say that they came to the end of their life with pure bliss in their heart. They will say, I left my mark on the world & I will be missed. I made so many people happy & I broke the pattern. Thank you Matthew to you & your beautiful parents & your team & your passion & your determination to give us all of you for 5 days, no matter how tired you were. You didn’t give up on us. I was dying the last day because I gave it everything I had. I saw you give it all you had, & I said I have to give him what he’s given me, & more.
    Thank you thank you. My mission is to tell the world about this wonderful gift you have to give. May God bless you & keep you safe so you can continue to enrich people’s lives. I guarantee that one of these days, you’re going to have someone ask you about this just because of me. I guarantee you. You will hear my name- Anita- & you’ll say that’s who I want on my team. Guess what? I am already on your team my friend- all the way. I’m there!

    Unconditional love to you!
    Anita Breidi from Dallas, Texas

  23. Paula says:

    Well I see where you get your good looks from! What a handsome man your father is!

  24. Darlene says:

    It’s true! You have a very handsome Dad.
    You two are quite a team.

    Thank you for bringing “Moments” to us.
    It was very moving; I was very close to

    More, please!! I look forward to Sundays.


  25. Faizah says:

    Matt, Now I see where you get the good looks from :)

  26. Ruwani says:

    This was a very nice segment Matt. My dad is also one of my mentors in being a high value woman, and now I also have you in my corner. My boring hero would be my dad, because he always used my mistakes to create genuine teachable moments without chastising. Watching him wanting to do better in his own life has also influenced me to do better in all aspects of my life as well.

  27. Maradoll Mynx says:

    Hi, Matt! Please excuse my candor, but your dad is…um…handsome.

    That said, I LOVE “boring heroes”!!! Superheroes seem so boring now.

    Your server is a wonderful human being. I adore meeting people like him…(although it’s rare) :)


  28. Nofyah Shem Tov says:

    Wow. You are such a combination of your two parents in your looks. Seems you got that best of both!

    And it’s apparent where you get your talent to get people talking…

    Great fun! Thanks for sharing!

  29. Jet says:

    I think “boring heroes” is appropriate. To me it suggests an every day hero, someone who is heroic in small ways, just like in your video.
    BTW, love your parents, congrats to them for raising such an amazing son!

  30. Leecis says:

    Matt, quit picking on my Jameson. Lol does Steve ever age? If you ladies think he is attractive in this video, come do the retreat and see him in formal attire.

  31. Candy Yap says:

    Hi Matt! I love this video about boring hero. I couldn’t agree with you more that true passion exist in every part of our life and that is what get people like me exicted! Life is worth passionate in, isn’t it? Thank you for sharing such a wonderful story of the man. Keep it up!! :)

  32. Pam Peters says:

    You look just like your dad. It’s so nice meeting him. What a great family!

  33. Aminah says:

    The way you speak is SO similar to the way your Dad speaks. The hand gestures, voices, stresses, every mannerism and aspect of speech is identical! As expected from father and son to an extent but this was almost unbelievable! (And very adorable)

  34. Sage says:

    Nice to meet your parents! I believe I saw your grandfather acting a doctor in a Alfred Hickcock movie.

  35. Aggie Lau says:

    Hii Matt,

    Wow you looks like your dad..Your mentor…This video reminds me of my own hero who is my own dad..In your video of boring hero, we all can be someone else hero in every little segment of our daily lives..Passionate people do bring the effect of a very positive energy in a way they looks at thing at a very very different level and the most beautiful thing is that they do not work for money itself..

  36. Ana says:

    Guessing you go over details pretty often :) (smiley face in case that sounded as a bad bit** sarcasm), here’s something for you to think about: Body Language, your arms were completly closed when your dad started to tell the boring hero story and went back to normal when he finished.
    Great video anyway (please excuse my english, I’m not a native speaker)
    Happy sunday!

  37. Yvonne says:

    I appreciated this video because it made me reflect on ways we can all be a hero in someone else life. The beauty is that it doesn’t have to be a great and magnanimous feat. It can be as ordinary and simple as making someone else feel special and making a difference for someone else in that moment.

    What can we do today to make someone smile? Maybe that smile was all they needed to brighten up their day and cause a ripple effect on others to pass it on. Just as the waiter did. Like, the “butterfly effect”, a small flapping of the wings can cause great impact in other places. Wow. Isn’t that something? Lets all go be a hero today, even for a moment. Why not?

  38. A. says:

    Dude, your dad is really attractive. Wow! Your mum is a lucky woman. She has some great kids too. :-) You guys really notice the small details about people and their behavior.

    Your parents taught you well!

  39. Whing says:

    Hello to you both again!! Just back from the retreat and watching this has given me a small reminder of the massive amount of energy that you given us all whilst we were there. If anyone is in any doubt of attending a retreat ‘ you should come’ !!!
    Love and thanks

    Whing xx

  40. Plamena says:

    Wow amazing dad you have Matt! handsome like yourself! No wonder you are such a good person with that kind of parents! Respect! xxx


  41. Desiree says:

    Having meet your dad at the Secrets of Attraction seminar a couple of months ago in London, it’s so clear to see that he is your Super Hero.

    My Sundays are brighter as your videos arrive in my inbox – thanks!! Kudos to Boring Heroes, let’s hear more!

  42. Alissa says:

    It must be said that your Dad is an extremely attractive man who seems to have a level of depth and maturity reminiscent of James Bond. He must be very proud of you! Thanks for sharing your family and their insights with us!

  43. Anita D says:

    It’s a very nice story, and as usual you made my day!
    By the way your dad is very handsome man.

    Bon dimanche

  44. Jill says:

    Cute!!! This made me smile, thanks.
    PS You look so much like your dad

  45. Lauren says:

    The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree! lol. :)
    I’m going to try to be more of a ”Boring Heroine” from now on!

  46. Emily says:

    LOVE the boring hero stories. One of my passions is telling (or facilitate their telling) of stories just like this. Perfect in time for Labor Day too.
    P.S. You smile like your dad :)

  47. Ann says:

    Last video really didn’t need a shot of a man putting on a condom.

  48. Kristal says:

    Love this!!! I was almost looking forward to seeing you show him the video and introducing him to us.

  49. Kathleen says:

    Hey Matt,
    I just watched this video on YouTube like 20 minutes ago. I loved it!!!
    The Boring Hero videos are brilliant and you should definitely make more of them.
    The man you spoke of in the video sounds absolutely fantastic. driving an hour to work is hard in its self, I should know I use to do it. Being on point with your moms tea and cream when he could have just walked away. ( I put cream in my tea. it’s good that way. don’t knock it.)
    Eight years in the service!!! I say Thank You very much!!!

    I remember the video with your mom you did a while back, and I will say your parents are very good looking people!!! I can see where you get your good looks from.

  50. Sandra says:

    Mr. Boring Hero is awesome… and serving in the armed forces as a medic, I am sure he is a real life hero.

  51. CelesteK says:

    Aw, I adore that story. I love it when people notice the little things and are willing to take the effort to spare others an unpleasant experience or an inconvenience, or to share useful information or just a great anecdote that can make someone’s day richer.
    Lovely to see your dad again. I love his cheeky expressions as he lets you talk. :)
