The UnBroken Podcast


Oct 4, 2023

Welcome to the grand finale of Season 3 on The Unbroken Podcast! Throughout this season, we've delved deep into the realm of character virtues and strengths, exploring the stories of inspiring individuals who embody these qualities. Today, we wrap it all up by introducing the concept of "magnificence."

Magnificence, derived from the Latin "magnum facere," meaning "to do something great," is our beacon. It represents the pursuit of greatness, not in a grandiose or self-centred way, but in a manner that resonates with the circumstances and context of our lives. It's about inspiring others to tap into their unique strengths and passions and channel them toward positive change.

The roots of magnificence trace back to classical antiquity, a time when it was linked to civic virtues, courage, excellence, honour, and generosity. It wasn't just about living in splendour; it evolved into a celebration of human excellence and flourishing. It was a call to nurture and cultivate magnificence in all, regardless of their circumstances.

In the Renaissance era, magnificence took on a whole new vitality, transforming traditional structures and paving the way for a society where everyone, regardless of their power and influence, could contribute to greatness. This vision is something we should strive for today – a world where magnificence is nurtured in all.

Reflecting on this season's incredible interviews, we've witnessed the strength and determination of individuals who, despite facing challenges, continue to create greatly and make the world kinder. These people touch the lives of many, emphasising the ripple effect of magnificence.

As we close this season, we leave you with a challenge: How will you embrace magnificence in your life? How can you do great things, create great change, and be great in your unique way? These questions carry the essence of magnificence, inspiring you to shine your light brightly and contribute to a better world.

We want to express our heartfelt gratitude to all our listeners for joining us on this journey. Your support, comments, and interactions mean the world to us. As we prepare for Season 4, we encourage you to share the podcast with two friends who may also find inspiration in our episodes.

So, until we meet again in Season 4, remember to create greatly and be magnificent. The Unbroken tribe is here, and together, we can make a difference.
