Benjamin Harrison 1833

Image result for benjamin harrison

When Harrison lost his bid for reelection in 1892 to Grover Cleveland, he had himself partly to blame. He had frozen out many of those who should have been most active in his support, and his own party was lukewarm toward him.

In 1896, Benjamin Harrison married his deceased wife’s niece, Mary Lord Dimmick, a widow nearly thirty years his junior.

*If you have frozen someone out lately, take today to think about reaching out to them – you never know when you may need their support. Just stay away from your wife’s niece.


Demi Lovato 1992

I’ve learned to appreciate my body for what it is. It helps to remind myself how far I’ve come. I recently saw pictures from my first tour, and I spent that whole summer performing in the heat in a red leather jacket because I was ashamed to show my arms. And that was when I was 105 pounds! This tour, I’ve had the confidence to show my arms at every single concert. It may seem like a small thing, but for me, that’s huge.

*Appreciate your body. Buy some clothes to show it off today. Listen to Demi for motivation.


Isaac Hayes 1942

Born dirt poor on Aug. 20, 1942, in Covington, Tenn., Hayes would move approximately 40 miles north to Memphis as a youngster, and teach himself music.

*Listen to some Isaac Hayes to soothe your soul.


Don King 1931

King later said of Tyson, “He’s poor, and he’s telling lies. Give me $400 million and say you robbed me. I loved Tyson. We made a lot of money together. He threw his away. I kept mine.”

Tell Yourself You Deserve More

Ever told yourself “I deserve it” when agonizing over the price of takeout after a long day, or trying to justify a new outfit after crushing a presentation at work? We’ve all been there—treating ourselves at the expense of our financial health.

But that’s the old you. Instead of deserving every gadget, weekend getaway, and expensive spa treatment that crosses your path, the new you knows that you deserve more. You deserve to be safe if you lose your job, free of bad debt, and saving for something big that will truly make you happy. The next time you’re tempted to spend, ask yourself: Do you deserve this $40 candle, $25 dinner, $150 pair of sneakers, or do you deserve more? Once you start asking, you’ll be surprised how often you choose to invest in your future instead.

*Are you throwing your money away or keeping it? It’s not every day that you’ll be told to be like Don King, but today is the day to keep your money – you deserve it.


Robert Plant 1948 – listen to Led Zeppelin

“And a new day will dawn for those who stand long, and the forests will echo with laughter.”
(“Stairway to Heaven”, Led Zeppelin IV)

Life Lesson: Hang in there baby, it’ll come around. Time and patience can win the day. Be hopeful and stand strong.

*Hang in there baby and listen to both Led Zeppelin and Robert Plant as a solo artist today.


Al Roker 1954 – cheddar crusted shepherd’s pie

He had gastric bypass surgery and lost 190 pounds, however, the pounds started to creep back on due to the sickness of his father.

At 50 pounds rebound, he made his dying father a promise that he would lose weight and get healthy.

*Listen to a nice mix of Demi Lovato and Led Zeppelin while making Al Roker’s shepherd’s pie. If you’ve lost weight so far this year, don’t start a 50 pound rebound.

John Stamos 1963

The good news, other than the fact that you get to stare at the star in his robe, is that the mask is available online — so you too can age (or not age) as gracefully as Uncle Jesse himself. He’s wearing the Bioxidea Miracle 24 Face Mask for Men, which he has also experimented with in the past. And as if things couldn’t get even better, it comes in a women’s version as well.

A simple way to cleanse your face is to:

  1. Rinse the face with warm water to loosen dirt and declog the pores.
  2. Massage your face with the cleanser in small circular motion and leave it on for a few seconds to give it time for the pollutants to be dissolved.
  3. Wipe your face with a face towel or tissue before splashing your face with cold water.

*Order this Bioxidea mask and use it to take care of your face – your money maker!


C.I. Scofield 1843

Image result for ci scofield

“Will you accept the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savour?” “I’m going to think about it,” was the answer. “No, you’re not,” answered M’Pheeters, “you’ve been thinking about it all your life. Will you settle it now? Will you believe on Christ now, and be saved?

Scofield stood silent for a moment in deep thought. Then turning, he looked his friend full in the face and said, “I will,” Then the two men dropped down on their knees side by side in the presence of God.

*Will you believe on Christ now, and be saved? Maybe you’ve been thinking about it your whole life, so do it today – if you truly believe.


Coco Chanel 1883

Image result for coco chanel the woman

It is easy to criticize Chanel for giving up so much of the equity in her firm, but at the same time:

  • She maintained exclusive creative control, which was what mattered to her.
  • Without the Wertheimer money and network, it is likely she would have died in obscurity, the name Chanel never coming into the lexicon as the embodiment of haute couture.
  • She also ended up wealthy herself, and got to do what she loved.

*If you are looking for investors, make sure you still have control of what is most important to you.


Matthew Perry 1969 – watch The Ron Clark Story

Image result for matthew perry ron clark

The Ron Clark Academy has assembled a faculty of master educators who have different teaching styles but a shared objective: to demonstrate how to improve student engagement, increase academic rigor, and create a school climate and culture that leads to success for all learners. In other words, we strive to create an environment that exemplifies everything we believe that a school should be, and then we open our doors to share our methods with others in hopes that they, too, will do the same. Our entire staff is committed to fostering a dynamic, passionate learning environment where every child is valued, challenged, loved, and nurtured.

*The public school system is broken and it will only be fixed by people who are actually in the classroom. Politicians, and even school administrators have no idea what students are like today. Watch The Ron Clark Story for evidence. Think of donating to the Ron Clark Academy.


Orville Wright 1871 – hot biscuits and coffee

Image result for orville wright

What did the brothers eat the morning of the first flight? Hot biscuits and coffee. (p. 55)

“Orville’s Biscuits without milk
1 quart of flour
A pinch of salt
2 heaping teaspoonful of baking powder
Water enough to make a stiff batter. Bake in a quick oven.”

Orville Wright was born on August 19, 1871. He dropped out of high school in 1889 to start a printing business, having designed and built a printing press with Wilbur’s help. Although both brothers took turns at flying their planes, it was Orville who was at the helm of the Wright Flyer that took flight in December 1903.

*Before you take flight today, enjoy these Wright Brothers biscuits and coffee

Robert Redford 1936

Image result for robert redford

Redford was guided as much by frustration as compassion. “I was never a good student,” he says. “I had to be dragged into kindergarten. It was hard to sit and listen to somebody talk. I wanted to be out, educated by experience and adventure, and I didn’t know how to express that.”

*Educate yourself by experience and adventure today. Think of watching Ordinary People – the Oscar winning movie, directed by Redford – especially if you’re dealing with loss.


Bob Harper 1965

Image result for bob harper

During sudden cardiac arrest — which is caused when the heart’s electrical system suddenly malfunctions — the heart stops beating and blood is no longer pumping through the body or the brain. Death can occur within minutes. Harper probably survived the event because of his excellent physical fitness and the immediate medical attention.

However, the fact that he was in such terrific shape also made having a heart attack at 51 that much more stunning.

He takes time each day to focus on inner calmness.

A three-time New York Times bestselling author, Harper regularly practices transcendental meditation (TM), which involves silently repeating a mantra in order to place your body in a state of profound rest and allow your mind to achieve a sense of peace, as defined by the Mayo Clinic. “TM, yoga, and my dogs really help me with managing my stress,” he emphasizes. “I tell people you have to find whatever it is in your life that you can do to turn off the white noise, just for a few minutes. If it means sitting with your phone off for five or ten minutes and not having to focus on anyone or anything— those things are so good for you. It helps your brain, it helps your body.”

*If you haven’t yet, get a heart checkup today. Would you survive cardiac arrest? Help your brain and body by shutting off the white noise for a few minutes today. Try TM and spending time with your dogs – and shut off that phone for 5 minutes today.


Roberto Clemente 1934

Image result for roberto clemente

On the evening of Dec. 31, Clemente boarded a plane filled with relief supplies, but the overloaded plane would never reach its final destination. It plunged into the ocean off the shores of Puerto Rico.

Although millions were grief-stricken upon hearing the heartbreaking news, Clemente’s family and intimate friends – even total strangers who Clemente befriended in his lifetime – weren’t shocked by his actions. On the contrary, it’s a side they already knew existed.

The Roberto Clemente Foundation values your partnership in continuing our mission of Building Nations of Good. Your Donation will be used to help impoverished people around the world and further the mission of the Roberto Clemente Foundation. Thank you for your support.

*Lead by your actions. Think of donating to the Roberto Clemente Foundation.

SIDE NOTE: My older brother was named Ted William after Ted Williams, my dad’s favorite baseball player. His second favorite player was Roberto Clemente. As his second son, I was almost named Roberto! Sometimes, when I drink too much, I take on the alter ego of “Roberto” – my wife does not like these times.


Steve Chen 1978

“I realized if I didn’t venture out on my own now, I wouldn’t have this opportunity later on in life,” he said. He developed a two-year plan: if his new company didn’t take off in two years, or he ran out of money first, he would try to go back to Paypal and get a job.

*You are well over half way through this year. Consider it a great start to your 2 –year plan to create your own business. You may not have this opportunity later in life.


Patrick Swayze 1952 – watch Ghost

Image result for patrick swayze ghost gif

The downside of the success of Dirty Dancing was that Swayze had found himself typecast. That changed after Ghost, but director Jerry Zucker told PEOPLE that his roles in films such as Roadhouse made him reluctant to even consider Swayze as the male lead. However, Swayze’s reading of the film’s farewell scene changed Zucker’s mind. “We all had tears in our eyes, right there in the office – and we knew how it ends,” Zucker said. “I saw a side of Patrick that I never knew existed.”

*Watch Ghost and maybe make a clay pot with that special someone.


Edward Norton 1969 – Fight Club Cream of Mushroom Soup

Image result for edward norton fight club


Russell Crowe was considered to play Tyler Durden and had met with a producer to discuss the part, but it was Brad Pitt who ended up with the role, adding $17.5 million to his bank account in the process. Edward Norton was cast by Fincher because of his performance in The People Vs. Larry Flynt, and took the studio’s offer of $2.5 million.

*Invite some friends over to watch Fight Club and serve them this delicious soup. Tell them that you are full and won’t be having any. They all may want to fight you after.

Davy Crockett 1786

“Everything you know about the battle of the Alamo, is incorrect. Everyone that fought at the Alamo was a coward, especially Davy Crockett.”

*Say this exact quote to someone today and see what the reaction is. Make sure you’re educated on it in case they ask any questions,


Sean Penn 1960

This Gunman workout will help you move heavy loads quickly, stimulating your nervous system, forcing the release of testosterone and meaning you’ll develop power and grow muscle fast.’

*Complete this Gunman workout today. Watch the movie for motivation. Or you could watch the two movies that he won Oscars for – Milk and Mystic River.


Marcus Garvey 1887

Image result for marcus garvey

If you believe that the Negro has a soul, if you believe that the Negro is a man, if you believe the Negro was endowed with the senses commonly given to other men by the Creator, then you must acknowledge that what other men have done, Negroes can do. We want to build up cities, nations, governments, industries of our own in Africa, so that we will be able to have a chance to rise from the lowest to the highest position in the African Commonwealth.

*If you believe in the soul and you believe that all people have souls, why would you ever treat someone as a lesser person?


Larry Ellison 1944

Image result for larry ellison

As a child, Larry Ellison’s adoptive father repeatedly told him he was good for nothing, according to Fortune.

Today, Forbes estimates Ellison’s net worth at $54 billion, making him the third-richest person in the US.

A competitive spirit is the greatest motivator

Ask Ellison why he still comes to work every day — what drives him after all he’s achieved — and he’ll tell you the same answer: he loves to compete.

“I’m addicted to winning. The more you win, the more you want to win,” he says.

More recently he described his motivation like this:

“What drives me is this constant testing of limits. Constant learning. … How can you move the world just a bit, make a difference, change lives … and how much can I help [while] discovering my own limits?”

*Test your limits. How can you move the world today? – just a bit.


Robert De Niro 1943 – watch Raging Bull

Image result for robert de niro raging bull gif

Scorsese and De Niro both saw how this flawed minor character was movie gold, and together they made of him a mythical or tragic figure in his own lifetime, alchemizing his sleaziness into something compelling, exalting him with the luminous beauty of black-and-white photography, eerily dreamlike fight sequences and the musical sob of Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana on the soundtrack.

*Watch De Niro win an Oscar in Raging Bull. Get motivated. Go do a boxing workout. He also won an Oscar for Godfather 2.


Donnie Wahlberg 1969 – Donnie’s Wahlburger

Launching Wahlburgers together has allowed us to get back to being brothers. We didn’t want someone else, some other entrepreneur being in charge of our destiny. I wanted us to be in charge of our destiny and we are.”

Wilhelm Wundt 1832

Image result for wilhelm wundt

Wundt argued that conscious mental states could be scientifically studied using introspection. Wundt’s introspection was not a causal affair, but a highly practiced form of self-examination. He trained psychology students to make observations that were biased by personal interpretation or previous experience, and used the results to develop a theory of conscious thought.


While you vacuum the house or wash the dishes, pay attention to how you feel. Do you feel tired, unenthused, uninspired, or apathetic? Put all your awareness into the act of doing the chores, and you will find that completing your daily tasks can actually be fun. Or, you might still hate doing chores, but either way, you can become aware of your thoughts during this time when most people let their brains run on autopilot.

If you give life to your chores and inject meaning into your daily tasks, you will feel more present in life rather than just being a silent spectator.

*Whatever you do around the house today, put all of your awareness into it. Don’t run on autopilot.


Madonna 1958

Image result for madonna

Madonna follows a very strict macrobiotic diet that abolishes the consumption of wheat, eggs, meats, and dairy, and extolls the benefits of something called “sea vegetables.” You were expecting this woman to mess around? She does not mess around.

  • Start the day with a nourishing portion of miso soup and brown rice.
  • soy meat and spiral rice pasta for lunch
  • Dinnertime is a stew of barley and seaweed.

This is a woman who wrote a song where the chorus goes “I’m not your bitch / don’t lay your shit on me.” In the background of this chorus, she whispers, “Handle it.”

*No wheat, eggs, meats, or dairy today. Dance to Madonna for inspiration.

There’s no job too small. Cameron would do everything from apply makeup to holding the camera if he could. His willingness to have a hand in every aspect of a film sets the standard for the work ethic and enthusiasm on his sets.

*Have a willingness to have a hand in every aspect of your job/company. Set the standard for other people’s work ethic and enthusiasm.


Steve Carell 1962 – watch Foxcatcher

Image result for steve carell gif

Human beings are incompetent risk managers. We readily accept present accommodations and fail to account for the price to be paid in the future.  When calamity strikes, we vow to be smarter next time, but seldom are. Life goes on, new ambitions arise and we try not to think too much about it.

The lessons of Foxcatcher, and many other things, never seem to be learned.

*Of course you should watch some reruns of The Office, or Anchorman, or 40 Year-Old Virgin,  but also watch Steve Carell almost win an Oscar in Foxcatcher

Napoleon Bonaparte 1769

Image result for napoleon bonaparte

Lesson 1: Aim High

Do not be satisfied with “just enough”, when you can have the “most”. Do not settle for “just all right”, when you can be the “best”.

Aim high. Be greedy. Of course, it goes without saying that the effort you put in should also be at its fullest. There should be no room for half-assed attempts or half-hearted cracks at something. If you won’t aim high, that has very little difference to not aiming for anything at all.

*Not aiming high has very little difference than not aiming for anything. Remember this today. Good is the enemy of great.


Ben Affleck 1972

Finish Strong: Hold yourself in pushup position for as long as you can. Any big superhero, including Batman, requires shoulder definition to achieve the ‘superhero’ look. Having clearly defined shoulders was a big part of Ben Affleck’s Batman workout.

Melinda Gates 1964

Image result for melinda gates

The success of entrepreneurs and philanthropists Bill and Melinda Gates has taught John Jacobs, the co-founder of apparel company Life is Good, one crucial lesson: Entrepreneurs don’t have to choose between making money and doing good.

Jacobs called the couple “unbelievably inspiring” and discussed one idea from Melinda Gates that particularly influences his thinking: “When you come to a point in your life when you see difficult things, don’t look in the other direction; move toward it,” Jacobs said, citing Melinda. “That’s the moment when you can affect change.”

“If you’re just trying to make a buck or sell a few products, you might just bail when you hit those harder points,” he added.

“In the course of your lives, without any plan on your part, you’ll come to see suffering that will break your heart. When it happens, and it will, don’t turn away from it; turn toward it. That is the moment when change is born.”

-Melinda Gates, speaking to Stanford University graduates in 2014

our goal:

To help people in the world’s poorest regions improve their lives and build sustainable futures by connecting them with digitally-based financial tools and services.

*This has made me realize that 365DOLF needs to champion a cause. My initial thought is stroke awareness, but I’ve always wanted to help Special Olympics too. By the time I’m done making this, I’ll know which way I want to go.

Tim Tebow 1987

Image result for tim tebow

I’m on a diet called the Ketogenic diet, and I’m so hooked on it, I love it. I’ve been on it for a little over five years, and I’ve tried to get my entire family on it. I love steak, salmon, chicken, cauliflower pizza is great, and I love making a breakfast casserole.

Tebow sticks to a ketogenic diet, which means eating a lot of healthy fats, moderate protein, very few carbs and hardly any sugar.

“A lot of people would think that’s very boring, and sometimes it is, but you find ways to really spice it up,” he says. “I eat a lot of things that run, swim or fly; I eat a lot of greens, a lot of Greek yogurt, a lot of avocado.”

More specifically, though, here’s what his typical food day looks like:

  • Breakfast:  “I have eggs in some form, whether it’s an omelette with spinach and ham and bacon and sausage all in there, or a scramble with avocado.”
  • Lunch and Dinner: Sparkling water—specifically La Croix, if he can get his hands on a can—and plain Greek yogurt are must-haves throughout the day. Beyond that, Tebow sticks to lean meats, like chicken, steak and salmon, often pairing them with asparagus, spinach or avocado. And guacamole: “Love it.”

*Eat breakfast and lunch like Tim Tebow today. This could become a habit.


David Crosby 1941

“Yeah! My biggest regret was wasting time doing hard drugs and being smashed out of my gourd and not really accomplishing much of anything,” he said. “That I think was a complete waste. And I really regret that. We only get a certain amount of time. You have to realize when you’re a kid you think life is going to be forever, and you’re going to last forever and you’re bulletproof. And all that stuff. It doesn’t turn out that way.”

*You only have a certain amount of time, don’t waste it by doing hard drugs and being smashed out of your gourd. Listen to some David Crosby for motivation. Moderation is key.

When Johnson was a young boy, he would frequently visit his father at the General Motors plant where he worked. “I would sit in the chair behind the desk and dream I was the CEO,” he says. But it was Johnson’s father who told him that he had to do more than just dream about what he wanted; he had to work hard for it.

*Don’t dream about working for a company. Dream of being CEO of that company.

Mila Kunis 1983 – borscht

Image result for mila kunis

What you might not know about the actress is that she is a great cook. Kunis revealed she loves cooking traditional Russian food and even loves picking up fresh ingredients at the grocery store.

“I’m best at Russian food, because that’s what I saw my mother cooking growing up. I was born in the Ukraine, although my family moved to Los Angeles when I was seven.”

Top Russian foods you have to try

  1. Borsch / Borscht(Originates from the Ukraine but will also be found in Russia)

This beet and cabbage red soup is a delicious belly warmer on Moscow’s colder days, served with or without meat, potato, herbs (usually dill) and a dollop of smetana, Russian sour cream.

*Be like Mila Kunis – go to the store and get fresh ingredients to make this Ukrainian/Russian borscht.

“Mila is the kind of girl everybody wants to hang out with,” says Fred Noe. “We love to laugh and cuss and raise hell and enjoy the bourbon. When this thing started, our former CMO, Kevin George, told me he saw an opportunity to introduce women to whiskey, and he was looking for a spokesperson to whom everybody will relate. Partnering with Mila has been a match made in heaven.”

Kunis admits she was only a casual whiskey fan before signing on with Beam. She acquired a taste for it from her rye drinking husband, actor Ashton Kutcher, in the form of a scotch-based Penicillin cocktail. Gradually Kunis came to enjoy bourbon over rocks, and she subscribes to Beam’s theory that the female market is underserved.

*Wash down the borscht with a Jim Beam over rocks.
