  • Hey everyone, I know we’ve had quite a few start and stops this year and I promise we’re the first to be bummed about it. It’s been a wild year of growth and learning lessons for us. Matt, Ammar, Tommy and I have never closer however. We’ve spent a lot of time working on our relationship and planning what direction we want to go in the future. We all feel super excited and reenergized about this new chapter and we’re happy you’re along with us. We’ll be back with a fresh start in November and are excited to see where the future will take us ❤️ Have an amazing day everyone ✌️

    • New to Yes Theory. Been watching a lot of your videos and stumbled across this one and that part about how much time we spend with our parents really hit me. Left New Orleans back on Jul 13 for Taiwan, and I've been there since. Missed a lot of weddings, holidays, and funerals since it's pretty expensive to travel. Only go home once or twice a year, but haven't been back since Christmas 2018. Sucks not being around friends and family. I really hope things improve so that it will be easier to travel.

    • Thomas discovered his life was becoming out of balance. Just like if you work, travel or doing anything most the time you come to the realization how much you miss home, family, friends and your local culture. When you attempt to live a more balanced life it feels right, you feel more fulfilled, mentally re-energized, and the void becomes filled. As you mentioned if you become unbalanced the other way you feel another void being created and your passion and desire to make videos, help others, or do whatever you find rewarding and fulfilling needs to be filled. Glad you were able to share this with us and hopefully others can benefit from understanding the importance of spending time with family before the opportunity is no longer there and regret sets in.

    • please don't feel pressured to make content to please us. Yes theory to me means living your life the way you want with NO REGRETS! The only person you have to be pleasing is YOURSELF! You come first, always.

  • My goal is to complete a full IRONMAN event this year at 62 years old, but unfortunately I have two Titanium knees, it’s never been done before and I will be the first, I’m signed up for the 2021 California inaugural Sacramento IRONMAN Oct 24th, can you help make my dream come true?

  • I was apparently unsubscribed. Re subbed again. Missed some videos but catching up. 😊😊

  • May the Gods and Goddesses keep you safe on your journeys ahead! May Thor protect you always

  • I'm new to the channel. But, i've seen other videos. man, had NO idea that English was not his native language. had me fooled

  • Fuck the states go and be free in an unbroken nation

  • Decide you want for the future THEN do videos. Sounds more sound instead of worrying about viewers.

    • What I'm saying is-- don't worry about us :)

  • Love Yes Theory Inspire alot of us

  • Im a norwegian/swedish fan. I always knew that thomas had some connection to sweden somehow, i didn’t know to what extent because of the great american accent. And now i find out he’s 100% swedish? Whattt?

  • In the U YESS (US)

  • That's beautiful

  • I'm so jealous of everyone who can escape the united states. This place is awful.

  • Its OK bro we understand.. yoko broke up the beatles

  • Why does he seem American?

  • Come to Madipakkam

  • ❤️❤️

  • What a beautiful and sincere admission. Thank you for sharing, and from someone who is old enough to be everyone's mother on here: You are so wise. Enjoy your parents and family. I'd give anything to have my Mom back. Living my life as a minimalist and nomad has been so freeing. Life is about experiences and the people you choose to love. I think you and your team at Yes Theory do that well. Thanks so much!

  • Just stay in Europe! The USA is rubbish!

  • For some people, they get to a place where constant fun, novelty and thrill seeking is just not fulfilling, they want something deeper.

  • Ok. Bye. Home is calling. Hope you like it better there.

  • I thought you were from the US. Have a nice time at home bro

  • Vente a braraka pri

  • It could be they are breaking up because some of them want to have families. Many women who want children want to be married, and they want the father to be around, a constant fatherly presence when raising kids. Women start to become less fertile in their 30's. If these guys want kids with wives that are close to their own age, they have to start working on it. Or, they can play around another 10-20 years and then marry a much younger woman.

  • I bet he was glad he was not here when the Trumpsters tried to overthrow the governnment.

  • You definitely have an American accent...I would never have known you were from a different country.

  • New to yes theory, and I'm absolutely loving the channel. However one thing bugs me for some reason. Why does Thomas have a North American accent, when he is french/ Swedish and lives in the USA on a visa?

  • who's here after matt announced his leave?

  • He guys please check this boyband PRETTYMUCH is new ep deluxe called smackables its 🔥🔥🔥after this ofc I mean the dudes leaving ☹️

  • If you re refering to the USA, why say America if its a whole continent? Its not that difficult i think, is it?

  • Please bring the Seek Discomfort line to Europe!

  • good on you bro

  • Better quality life in EUROPE, for sure. Americans will never get that

  • Where does this leave your girlfriend?

  • its impressive to hear you say you love america i mean, a lot of americans dont love america

  • Jesus is king and our savior repent of sin so you can be saved remember Jesus Christ loves you and he’s coming soon

  • this guy has such a great heart

  • I.love.this. It is now post-election and no more united than before. I hope we can get back to peace and love for one another. I hope you are enjoying your family and being home! What an awesome decision you made 🥰 looking forward to more of your videos! Love and peace from Texas.

  • Hey Thomas. Wish you all the best for your new adventure. I for one going to miss your laugh.

  • So you will go and infect others without care - awesome!...And I think we all can see america is corrupt af so please don't pretend otherwise - it insults the little intelligence left in the west.

  • Oooo that thing about time with family made me sad, because i just moved away again after spending 8 months of lockdown with my parents. Im doing whats best for me (more opportunity where I am now, and im seeking discomfort with a new adventure)...but oh man, that made me miss them. Will be facetiming my family more often!

  • so welcome to vienna - austria 2021

  • I was in this position too had to leave paradise to do the right thing, much love 💙

  • It seems america response to pandemic is let everybody get it and whose weak die. I feel scared. I'm high risk. They've made everything about money and if you don't have any you can't even get medicine you need. I don't know where love went in america. I don't know where love Is. It's like it's missing.

  • I'm jealous I'm terrified of living in America any more. People don't care about each other like they use to, we are in a pandemic and people act like they don't want to help you get medicine to survive the pandemic. Love seems to be missing in America. Love.

  • Family is everything! Cherish every moment with them. Take it from someone who lost his Mother recently. I truly cherish every moment that we spent together for those memories are forever part of my heart and soul! Be safe and healthy Brother!

  • I know this is three months late but I hope you’re doing well with your family and that you are coming to terms with what you want in your life. The community will be here where ever you are in the world.

  • I can totally relate. I did the opposite tho, came back to the US to be with family. Love your videos & content. 👍👍✨

  • Amar should’ve chosen his family over this channel lol it’s kind of heart breaking to be so committed to something and your business partners aren’t. Kind of sucks

  • I'm living with my parents all my life so Im good

  • 0:00 That wall map is dope bro. Where did you get it?

  • Where did you get that WORLD MAP?

  • Wish I could leave asap

  • seems like an excessive way to say you're a mommies boy.

  • thecovid is a complete hoax created by the wicked free masons

  • The worst part when he said home, and I realized that I don’t have a country that I call home.

  • 💜💜💜

  • Are you in The 100?

  • His hairline stayed in America tho😂

  • Leave it for good. Its a shit hole

  • Hope you enjoy your time with your family, you that have the opportunity. Really wish I had enough money to go back to my country but I’m the provider of my family so had to make the sacrifice to move away and provide for them. It really sucks!!! But looking they’re good because of your help, it makes it worth it.

  • This video came to me at a time where I've been struggling to decide whether or not to move back home for the same reason. Thank you for making the answer so clear. Good luck in Europe❤️

  • I can’t detect a Swedish accent.

  • I feel lost and confused. I am not sure what I need to do to get me back on track. I feel very lost. I need to get back on track for my family but I am lost.

  • I do hope that by seeking yourself, you find your way back together as a stronger team. It is your individual authentic reactions brought together that produces the greatest impact on your viewers and distinguishes your content from everything else out there. I cannot wait to see what you have in store for us!

  • Love the white facatte rug!

  • while you are living in Europe, if you can manage you should visit Bulgaria on the 7th January (the day of religiously celebrating the name Jordan - fact ;isprofile.info/pac/mIGdooV6i3unmKk/v-deo.html) - in the town called Kalofer the guys dance traditional dances and play bagpipes in a frozen river for good health and for praising the traditional roots of religious beliefs - there is a river called Jordan that is very sacred for every person who has faith, basically. It is a rite of passage for men in here to do that - you become one by the discomfort of getting in the frozen water even though it feels like crap. Our grandfatehrs have all done that to be accepted as men and to be able to find a good wife. Today it is not mandatory, but i think it still helps in the same ways haha. And the saying is that this makes the men able to have strong and healthy babies afterwards :) so there are benefits. If you feel like getting to know the complicated Balkans culture, go there. But it is not very comfortable in the Balkans region... Good luck!

    • day-to-day life is much more uncomfortable and exhausting than adventure lifestyles. That is the problem for many people around the world - getting too comfortable to dare live a better life and just continuing old patterns. you can not find that in traditional Bulgarian culture. it is so rebellious and out of comfort that you should just live it to believe. Thracian culture has become mythical because it is hard to believe :) Oh, on that note - Nikola Tesla is originally from Serbia. And Serbia is a very wild place too - the energy there is overwhelming. Overall the Balkans are where the Thracian civilization did what they did, and now it is full of energy of innovation. the sad thing about this is in modern days the fake comfort of a systematic way of life prevents people to live according the old traditions and you will hardly find many people that are as wild as Nikola Tesla today. But you can try - it is sad to visit here because all of the excitement and pride the people of the region have is darkened by years of genocides and slavery on part of the Turks here, so people are very stressed and are not really themselves. It feels unsafe for them to organize the rituals that are inherent in their cultures - the ice river dancing, the walking on burning coal in summer, and other peculiar stuff like that. It is fun in Europe, but it can be a struggle emotionally living here if you are on the fringes (Eastern Europe);; anyway, have a good stay

  • Wow. I been feeling the same way. With the political climate I been feeling less at home and I feel to move back to the Philippines to reconnect with my culture. I realized this year that i really don’t know my culture and my home country and want to reconnect.

  • 3 minutes in and I am crying about having spent already spent 80-90% of the physical time I have with my parents with them. I see my parents about about 2-3 weeks a year because I live in a different state than them but have long holidays bc I am a student. That number will shrink down drastically when I start working and that makes me so sad. Maybe I need to move closer to them again instead of looking for work here next year.

  • Interesting point of view. I never felt welcome in America (and I was born there) but you're straight and handsome, so maybe that makes a difference. I'm much more comfortable as an immigrant in Israel.

  • All thanks to worldvendor on telegram through the credit card i got from him i was able to pay up my bills...am sharing this here because i want others to enjoy the benefit too..thanks sir

  • >. go home , Homie !

  • It blows my mind to hear how you guys can't come to the realisation that the moment you move out, you don't spend as much time with your parents. An alternative view to this would be : I'm not making enough dollars and would need to bunk back with my parents


  • I hope you come again to america

  • Is there any country left that doesn’t hate Americans? I American was born and raised in America and I’m starting to not like it so much here. I don’t think I want to be here anymore, I’m so confused.

  • I like this channel so much value !!! THANKS A LOT ... I also try to create content just like this, please check out and support me :) show some love for beginners :D (SELMAN KORGAN)

  • you can watch my vlog in Egypt by using the link below isprofile.info/pac/poSOgJSDp4e8q4M/v-deo.html

  • Safe Travels. Stay safe .

  • Thomas u r the reason I watch the videos

  • This year was all about change! We either grow with it or get left behind... I definitely feel it ... I’ve been so lost a depressed this year more than I’ve ever have been ... and I just really think it is time to get back to the simple things in life. No phones 6-10 am and I’ve deleted most social accounts except FB since it’s mostly family. And since this change I have felt better! Now less tv/ISprofile time and back to cooking more regular meals are the next milestones to meet 👍🏼😂

  • Wow, an video with an important update, that actually gets right to the point. Most of the videos, such as ones about leaving a ISprofiler group, take like 15 minutes to get to the point, and aren't very clear about it.

  • I think it’s a wonderful idea. Happy you made this decision, I have no birth family left who haven’t disowned me, except my Granma. I just got married and in that moment saying I do, I realised I have an amazing chosen family. I’m so grateful. This year has brought change that’s been needed, except people’s health is worrying. I have an autoimmune disease and chronic pain so I’m basically always at home, mostly with my eldest son and middle son. But I love my family and hope I can do great things from my home. Good luck! Always listen to your heart.

  • Actually I think it is not about the quantity we spend with our parents but about the quality...

  • *goes to Afghanistan*

  • 4:07 *goes to Afghanistan*

  • Hi Thomas and co. Maby you could come to little Frederikshavn ;-) but nice to hear you still feel the roots in you and hope it´ll boost your channel even more. Greetings from Frederikshavn, Denmark

  • please visit Nepal !! 🇳🇵🇳🇵🇳🇵

  • Aww, Thomas, I totally understand. Coronavirus sucks and politics, at least we have a new president. I just found you guys today and I enjoy this vlog. Yes, go and reunite with your family and I'm looking forward to the new videos. Godspeed!

  • Come to south africa 🇿🇦

  • wish i could leave america lol

  • Congrats to you Thomas! I'll be honest, I'm pretty disappointed in Yes Theory because I, like many, thought that Yes Theory would stay out of the political scene ("Yes Theory" group not personal). In this video you talk about peace, which is great and why I followed you guys from the beginning but yet, Yes Theory posted themselves partying in the streets with thousands of people when Biden "won". That was disappointing. I'm hoping you guys remain true to Yes Theory and promote peace and unity by not allowing things to separate us, such as politics.

    • Them being happy over Biden winning isn’t promoting separating people. It’s simply just going “nice, the person I voted for won :)”.

  • Thomas: I’ll be in Europe Also Thomas: Hello guys! I’m in Afghanistan I-...

    • @Harshit Singh Iraq is safe as long as the US doesn't break its peace treaty

    • Also says to travel safe countries and travel to Iraq

    • And he said i will go to the countries that he can safely travel to

  • Awesome stuff! New subscriber here!

  • Can y’all do a video about the Spartan race???

  • I honestly wish my home land was not America, I want to leave because everything here makes me so uncomfortable how our government is handling things. Even alot of American citizens are out of control with not staying home and going out in public w/o masks. I would love to travel the world and seek for a better alternative for all on our planet. I just want to grow my knowledge outside of these American borders. Unfortunately, I am one working as a delivery driver to feed and provide for ones that are terrified to leave their homes or cant to get what they need. Someone with a heart condition that this virus could kill I am not allowed to stay home. I have bills and a house to pay for it's awful that I have to put others and myself at risk to make my bills. Please stay safe my friend and always do what you feel is your best path to take, goes for all.

  • Come to Pakistan,would love to have you here

  • Tom...I went back home to India after lockdown and it was the best decision I could make. US is different in lockdown for someone who isn't from there. I really appreciate this; it made me feel heard too

  • What about Lexie? If u let her go Im never gonna forgive u! I will give u so much discomfort that its gonna feel like spending a thousand years with Wim Hof! Hon är den rätta! Lovar =)

  • 1st reason: Gavin Newsom/Government 2nd reason: Traveling / family
