What if your Monday blues could transform into Monday marvels? 

Imagine kickstarting each week with zest, positivity, and a fresh perspective. I'm Dai Manuel, your host for this Monday Motivation episode of the 2% Solution podcast, and I'm here to guide you on how to reclaim your Mondays from the grasp of mundanity. With around 4,000 Mondays, let's not let them slip away in a blur of grumbling and coffee-guzzling.

This episode is packed with practical tips and strategies to infuse your Mondays with excitement and accomplishment. 

Let's explore the idea of Monday as a weekly New Year's Day, complete with resolutions, intentional planning, and morning rituals for success. Learn how to 'eat the frog' like Brian Tracy suggests and tackle the toughest tasks in the morning. Celebrate small wins and stay nourished to maintain momentum throughout the day. 

By the end of this episode, I promise, you will see Monday not as a dreaded day but as a treasure trove of opportunities. So, let's unlock the potential that every Monday holds together!

Have you ever wondered if you're truly living your best life or stuck in a never-ending reality show called "Why Do I Keep Doing This?"

Meet Maurice, a fellow Canadian who might be a secret wizard. He's created the Life Inventory Assessment.

At first, I was skeptical, thinking, "Sure, Maurice and I'm a unicorn."

I tried it, and whoa! I was so amazed I dedicated a podcast episode to sharing my "ah-ha" moments and clarity.

And here's the deal: This incredible tool for self-awareness can be yours for just $24.98!

That's not only a massive 75% discount; it's also just one penny short of the cost of a one-month Netflix binge of high-tier shows.

Along with this life-altering assessment, you'll also receive Dr. Douglas Tataryn's e-book, typically priced at $37.

And because I believe in overdelivering (or maybe it's just too much coffee), you'll also get my "Dai Manuel's Whole Life Fitness Manifesto" – a guide to living your best life, valued at $24.

As the cherry on top, Maurice and I will take you on a masterclass journey where we'll spill all the secrets of maximizing your newfound self-awareness.

Visit, and let's turn your life into the adventure it's meant ...

Dai Manuel:

If humans had a snooze button for Mondays, how many of the estimated 4,000 Mondays in a lifetime would we happily spend hibernating under the covers? Well, hello awesome people. Welcome back to your favorite part of the week, the Monday Motivation Episode of the 2% Solution podcast Dai Manuel I'm here to sprinkle some zest into your Mondays and transform them from mundane to marvelous. But seriously, that question right. Let's pause and ponder something really interesting. Did you know that, on average, we experience about 4,000 Mondays in our lifetime? That's literally 4,000 opportunities to start fresh, set new goals and make positive changes? It would be a real shame to let these days slip by in a blur of grumbling and coffee guzzling, wouldn't it? And why do we feel the Monday blues so often? It's the sudden shift from weekend freedom to weekday structure, sure, but here's a radical idea. What if we reframe Mondays as our weekly New Year's Day, a weekly opportunity for renewal and excitement? Let's break down how we can all make this mindset shift and start enjoying every one of those 4,000 Mondays.

Dai Manuel:

So here's step number one set your intentions. Take a moment each Sunday to reflect and jot down what you want to achieve in the upcoming week. Think of each Monday as the grand opening of a personal adventure. Step two morning rituals for success. Incorporate something you truly enjoy into your Monday morning. Maybe it's a special playlist, a favorite breakfast or a few minutes of meditation. Turn Monday morning into a moment you eagerly await for. Step three dress for success. Pick out an outfit that makes you feel like a superstar. This small, simple act can drastically change your outlook and set a competent tone for your day.

Dai Manuel:

Step four tackle the tough stuff. Identify a big task and tackle it head on. Completing it will give you an incredible sense of accomplishment, making Monday feel like a victory. You may have heard the term eat the frog. That whole idea was put forward in an amazing book, brian Tracy. He basically put forward that if the hardest thing that we had to do in any given day was eat a frog, shish best to do it first thing in the morning, when the motivation is high. Because by getting through that hard task first thing when you're fresh, you're ready and motivation is at its peak, it's going to set you up for a great day. But also it's probably the best time to do that hard task. But just think how good the rest of the day is going to be knowing that you got that out of the way. Wonderful way to create momentum for us heading into a week.

Dai Manuel:

Next number five celebrate small wins, recognize and celebrate each task you complete. These many celebrations can turn your Monday into a series of joyful moments. Number six stay hydrated and well nourished. Begin your Monday with a nourishing breakfast and stay hydrated throughout the day. Treat your body like a temple, especially on Mondays. And if you're stuck for ideas, well heck, grab my free smoothie recipe book. Literally, it's seven days of different recipes, all green smoothie orientated. I know I'm trying to sell you on this right, but honestly I'm not trying to sell you on anything. Try it for a week and tell me you don't feel the benefit. Anyways, it's a free resource. Check it out in the community if you haven't already, or reach out to me. I'm happy to send it to you Now.

Dai Manuel:

Let's make a pack to transform our perspective on Mondays. Let's see them as 4,000 opportunities in our lifetime to start anew, grow and thrive. Embracing and enjoying every Monday means savoring a significant part of our lives. It's about making the most of every moment we're given. Thank you for tuning in to today's Monday Motivation on the 2% Solution. I'm Diamond Well reminding you that your Mondays are a treasure trove of potential. Let's unlock it together and set the stage for an amazing week. Each and every time, stay positive, stay motivated and let's conquer our weeks with energy and enthusiasm. Mondays are a mindset, so let's set forward and make this a great week.

Look forward to hearing from you and make sure you comment, you share, you like, you subscribe, leave a review. I mean any of it and all. I'm all for it, and I've been loving some of the message I've been receiving. I'm actually starting to collect a lot of these questions that I've been fired either through social or through email, and I'm looking forward to creating a special episode where I'm just going to address a bunch of questions people are asking. So if you haven't had an opportunity to get your question in, go ahead, find me on social, connect with me on Instagram, send me an email. Let me know what's that burning question that you're thinking about right now. Maybe it's a fitness question, maybe it's a nutrition question, maybe it's a mindset question. Hey, I just threw my way because, at the very least, I've got to line up some amazing guests and I'll tell you. If I don't know the answer, don't worry, I'll go find someone that does so. With that, have a great Monday. Remember this is one of 4,000 and let's make it awesome.
