How can we truly create a life of abundance? What can we do if our mind is negatively polluted? How can we win in the battle against expectations?

Big questions that we are deep diving into with Daniel Man-gena, best-selling author, motivational speaker, coach and contributing writer to Entrepreneur and Brainz Magazine.

In this episode, we talk about how one man turned his life from misery (depressed in jail) to life-altering (being diagnosed with Asperger’s at 27) to celebration. We also talk about letting go of trying to manage uncertainty, finding the right tools you need to create a life of abundance, and some daily hacks to help you get there.

It’s time to live wide awake.
