What is it?

The Mortality Manifesto offers a doorway to a powerful new way of living. Living like you matter! If you choose to step through the door, your life will never be the same.

The Mortality Manifesto unlocks the door to an entirely new level of freedom and power in the areas of your:

  • Relationships
  • Health & Fitness
  • Career
  • Finances
  • Self-Esteem / Confidence
  • Legacy

If that idea has you feeling fired up and ready for a breakthrough, then you’re in the right place.

But I want you to be sure.



Take note

The Mortality Manifesto is not for everyone.

It’s not like a feel-good, carpe diem coffee mug or bumper sticker. (Ever notice how people with the carpe diem mugs are usually using them at jobs they can’t wait to quit… someday?  Yeah – the Mortality Manifesto isn’t for those people.)

If you’re simply searching for a good dose of reality-based, action-oriented motivation, then I suggest you check out my other site: ChooseTheLifeYouWant.com

However, if you’re the kind of person who asks the bartender where they keep “the good stuff”…

Of if you’re sick of wondering what you’re going to be when you grow up…

then welcome – you might be in the right place

Who created this?

My name is Patrick Mathieu and I help people to destroy the bullsh*t that stops them from choosing and living the lives they want.  I see too many people living “by default” and accepting whatever they are handed. I help people choose and live lives that are worth dying for. (That’s why I have my ‘expiry date’ tattooed on my shoulder.)

I’m a motivational speaker, author and coach. I’ve been featured in a full-length documentary film and appeared on numerous television and radio programs, including Oprah & Friends (in an hour long interview with Dr. Oz.) discussing my work, helping people choose and live the lives they want.

Why did I create it?

What Do I Know About Mortality?

I’m fortunate enough to know when I’m going to die. I was born with multiple congenital heart defects, but amazingly I’ve never had any surgeries or been on any medications because of my heart. When I was eighteen years old, a top cardiologist told me that he and his team hoped I would live to be 30 years old.

“Because of the way your heart is built, it will give out much sooner than normal. We hope that doesn’t happen until you’re 30.” – the news I was given at age 18

It took me six long and difficult years to come to terms with the news that my life was more than half over. But accepting and embracing my own mortality left me a transformed person. In 2003, I made it my mission to help other people destroy the bullsh*t that keeps from living their best life.

I took the numerals of my 30th birthday, converted them into a barcode, and had it tattooed on my arm, where it serves as a daily reminder.

Does it really work?


I know it works because I was forced to test it out for real in 2006 when I had a stroke.

Sign up below for the 5-Day Primer.  If you decide to take the Mortality Manifesto Pledge at the end of the five days, I’ll tell you about the stroke and I’ll share the impact the Mortality Manifesto had on that experience.

** It works – but you have to go ALL-IN.

Men - a special word for you.

Speaking as a man, I know that we can often have an especially complex relationship with mortality.

That’s why I’ve created the Mortality MANifesto.  If you’re interested in this, sign up below for the 5-Day Primer.  You’ll be given a chance to learn more once you complete the 5-Day Primer.
