RAGS TO RICHES DAY
Orlando Bloom 1977
“I was an angry child at times. I was frustrated with the learning disability. It makes you feel stupid; you just don’t feel smart. Somewhere in me I knew that I was smart, I knew I wasn’t thick, but I was just really struggling with spelling and writing, and it was holding me back.”
*Regardless of your disadvantages, find your passion and let it put your mind to work in a different way.
Liam Hemsworth 1990
*Part of the challenge of this workout is to find a place where you can flip tires in a parking lot and slam baseball bats against body bags.

Michael Pena 1976
