30 days of manifesto

I have decided to take myself on in the most extreme way. For 30 days, I will be taking on lululemon’s manifesto like it’s going out of style (which it won’t, don’t worry!). What does this mean? Well, I will be scaring a lot of people, including myself. I will be sweating at least once a day. And, I will be pushing myself to exceed my own expectations and the odd self-imposed limitation.

Meet Oli, who'll be living the lululemon manifesto every day for 30 days!

Let the countdown begin! Send in your suggestions. This is as much my challenge as yours because you know I’m not doing this alone… Challenge me, test me, encourage me to do something you’ve always wanted to do and have never tried: hiking the Grouse Grind, stand-up paddle boarding, taking that photography course that you (and I) have put off for four years. Let’s go on a journey!

The inspiration for Oli's challenge: our manifesto!

This is for you. This is for me. If I can do it, anyone can. For those who would like to join me in this challenge, send me your setbacks, your stories, and your pictures. Make sure you include the manifesto quote that you’re focusing on! Let’s do this together and put it out there for the world to see. Better yet, meet me there! I will be formulating a plan based on your votes. I’ll let you know where I’ll be and invite you all to kick yourself into a life you absolutely love!

Live in possibility. Let this be the start of your best life.

Want to suggest a manifesto challenge for Oli? Leave a comment here or on Oli's blog, where she'll be updating daily, starting August 1!

I suggest the Flying Trapeze, there are several spots where you can take lessons and it is hands down the most fun I have ever had.

I’d love to do this too – sounds like a great idea. I think I’ll do it for the 31 days leading up to my wedding and honeymoon starting August 1. My focus: sweat once a day. :-)

Oli – So awesome! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! I will be tracking your progress. Good luck!

Please do NOT drink as much water as you can, as this can kill you. You can also get toxicity from taking too many vitamins. Some of the manifesto items need to be re-written.

I use a sticky note of, “Do it Now” to remind me not to procrastinate! It works wonders, I look forward to readnig how this works for you.

One of my favourite manifestos is the one you’re using! Do one thing a day that scares you :D
It keeps your life exciting and adventurous! Even if it’s something that’s small and insignificant for others, it may be challenging and scary for you!

This is amazing Oli! I can’t wait to follow your adventures all month!

My suggestion would be to try the Whistler Bungee Night Jump. I may even join you…

Learn how to do a backflip/frontflip.
Try a really weird food.
Go down the steepest waterslide you can find.
Call someone you miss but hardly talk to.

This is fabulous. How about a hot air balloon ride? That is my dream for this summer.

I love the topic you have chosen to tackle. Best of luck, I look forward to reading all about it!

Try doing a prolonged medition (2 or 3hrs). This isn’t as extream as some of the other activites but it involves pushing yourself to the limit nonetheless.

Tell someone you just met that you love them. I think people have made love into a scary thing and it’s not. I’d also suggest Skydiving it’s one of the most amazing things I’ve tried. And last but not least Volunteer in a homeless shelter DT eastside over night.
ps I’d be willing to do any of these suggestions with you. Love Donovan:-)

Think I’ll join you too. Water, vitamins sweat and scary stuff for September :)

I’m in! This will definitely be words to live by on my mission to the 42.
