Conversations with Buddhist Millionaires: with UFC fighter, Modestas Bukauskas

Jul 23, 2021

For a combat athlete, the UFC (The Ultimate Fighting Championships) is the peak of an impossibly high mountain. Many aspire to such lofty heights. Few succeed. Most get crushed as they fail.

I always knew I’d love this episode, not least because today’s guest is one of my favourite martial artists on the planet. I’ve liked him ever since the day we met and he chose not to hurt me!

Modestas Bukauskas (Aka: ‘The Baltic Gladiator’) is humble, authentic, generous and kind. These are refreshing commodities in a world which often sell brashness and arrogance as key ingredients to success.

But don’t underestimate him. He’s also one of the most dangerous men you’re likely to meet.

‘Big Mo’ is a young man on the rise. He has already looked from vantage points of which most of us can only dream. His story isn’t only remarkable because of his successes, though. It’s most notable because of his failures and the ways he has faced them unflinchingly.

This episode is for anyone who dreams of doing more with their life but can’t find the way to overcome the obstacles that keep knocking them down. You don’t need to be a fighter to learn from Modestas. You just need to be human for his words to inspire.

Mo’s ‘story’ is still being written, but what he’s learnt already is every bit the type of gem one finds when walking the ‘hero’s journey’.

Listen. Learn. Be inspired.

As ever, I hope you love this episode, and please take the time to share it with someone you think might benefit.

Until next time.

Lots of love.

Matt and the team x 😊🙏🏻🙏🏻
