The human being is constantly questioning about the meaning of happiness, how to find and perceive it. Its complexity has prevented him from understanding that you can enjoy a full life in the simple and small things. If it is a matter of finding happiness, you should look at day to day, since it is allied to certain basic rules that – unconsciously – are applied. In this case, it is not the difference. That is why, behind the renowned actor, there is a very particular ideology of life. “Know yourself, which is the golden rule of philosophy. Patience. Play to understand and listen. Also, as long as we take care of our spark, we will be able to succeed and achieve what we want ”affirms Akin, sharing his formula of bliss.

Well they say that everything can change in a second. For Akinözü it was two hours and 16 minutes in 1999, in California. I was watching the movie for the second time The Matrix, starring Keanu Reeves. For him, his life, at that moment, had a quite particular course. It was a kind of premonition about his purpose. Matrix It inspired me to that and it opened up a world of new possibilities, because behind all those action scenes there was a great philosophy about movies that can achieve that. So I said to myself: ‘Okay, I want to be part of that, let’s get to it’ “recalls the actor.
