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 ...

Now, of course, quick note if you're driving, don't close your eyes, okay, but you can definitely follow along and let the mind focus on those things that you're most grateful for in your life right now, in this present moment, and also take note if you find value in this, bookmark this episode, save it Any time you need to tap into it when you're feeling a bit down, feeling a bit unclear, feeling maybe just a little bit overly anxious or stressed about either something that's coming up or something that's been on your to-do list for way too long. This five-minute practice might be just the thing to unblock, unlock and reset and release that feel good and torfans, but also get you back to feeling your best.

Dai Manuel:

Before we start, find a comfortable position, sit down, close your eyes and take a deep breath. Let's embark on this journey together. All right, start by taking three deep breaths. Inhale slowly through your nose, allowing your lungs to fill with air, and exhale through your mouth, releasing any tension you're holding. Two more and release. Now I want you to envision a place of peace. Imagine a place where you feel completely at ease. It could be a beach, a forest, your childhood home, even a cozy corner of your current home. I want you to visualize yourself there, feeling safe and at peace.

Dai Manuel:

Now let's focus on grateful for the present, that gratitude right now. Think of three things you are grateful for in this moment. They can be as simple as the air you breathe, the warmth of the sun on your skin or the roof over your head. Change these blessings and feel the gratitude fill your heart. Let's get grateful for some things from our past. Reflect on three things from your past that you're thankful for. These can be past experiences that taught you valuable lessons. Maybe it's people who supported you or happy memories that bring you joy.

Dai Manuel:

Lastly, let's shift to the future. Think about three things. You are looking forward to. Feel the excitement, the gratitude for these upcoming blessings and opportunities. Next, you want to seal the gratitude as you slowly return to the present. Take one more deep breath and hold on to the feelings of gratitude that you're experiencing right now. Gently open your eyes when you're ready, carrying this sense of thankfulness with you. How do you feel?

Dai Manuel:

Remember this practice is a tool you can use anytime you need a reminder of the good in your life. Note shifting our focus from what we lack to what we have and, in doing so, transforming our entire outlook in life. In today's fast-paced world, it's easy to lose sight of the beauty that surrounds us. But, as we've seen, dedicating just five minutes to gratitude can make a world of difference. I encourage you to make this practice a part of your daily routine.
