If transforming good into great were simple, wouldn't everyone be superstars? 

But here at the 2% Solution Podcast, we know it's about those tiny shifts that catapult us from the ordinary to the extraordinary. And that's precisely what we're unpacking today—how those seemingly insignificant tweaks in your daily routine can escalate your fitness game to the next level. 

We've got the science to back it up with insights from the Journal of Applied Psychology, and let's say the evidence is more than compelling.

Let's lace up for a journey where resilience and passion are your trusty sidekicks, and finding your 'why' is the game-changer. This episode isn't just about sweat and numbers—it's a deep dive into the philosophy of greatness inspired by none other than Frederick Nietzsche. We'll also dissect a Harvard study on goal setting that could revolutionize your approach to personal milestones. 

You're not alone on this road to greatness, and I, Dai Manuel, am here to cheer you on. 

So crank up the volume, and let's crush those benchmarks together—one 2% improvement at a time.

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:

Hey there, fitness fam, welcome back to your favorite part of the week, dip Friday. Back to the 2% Solution Podcast Dai Manuel I'm , you're a friendly neighborhood fitness enthusiast and, quite frankly, you're cheerleader on this journey from good to great. Yeah, you heard it right. We're not just aiming for good here, we're shooting for the stars. But let's break it down. Being good what does that even mean? Well, that's like your standard morning coffee, necessary but expected. Being great though, that's like your double espresso on a Monday morning it really gets you going.

Dai Manuel:

Greatness is not just about having talent. It's about putting in that extra effort when everyone else is hitting the snooze button. It's the extra rep, the extra mile, the extra set that turns good into great. Now, did you know that, according to a study in the Journal of Applied Psychology, consistent small improvements over time can lead to significantly better performance? That's right. It's all about the 2% improvements. You see, that's what I'm talking about. So if you're lifting weights, maybe add a few more pounds this week. Going for a run, how about an extra lap around the park? Small steps equate to big leaps.

Dai Manuel:

Let's talk resilience and passion. To quote the famous philosopher Frederick Nietzsche, he who has a why to live can bear almost any how. Find your why and those 6 am workouts will start to look less like a chore and more like a conquest. Remember, sweat is just your fat crying, and who doesn't want a good cry now in them? But let's not forget greatness is a journey, it's not a destination. It's like trying to get your kids to eat their veggies.

Dai Manuel:

It takes patience, persistence, a bit of sneaky chef magic, but a Harvard study showed that setting specific goals increases not only the motivation and performance but our mindset around achieving greatness. So set those goals and don't just chase them. Overtake them so you're ready to turn your good into great. Because, trust me, the view from the top is worth every drop of sweat. And hey, if you're going to climb the mountain anyways, why not enjoy the hike?
