*Take some of Isaac Asimov’s SUPER QUIZZES to stimulate your mind.

BODY

Karina Smirnoff 1978

  • Never do the same workout twice. Mix it up so your body doesn’t plateau.
  • Eat watermelon and asparagus as diuretics. They are great for the body because they help get toxins out.
  • Eat spinach because it’s a great source of fiber and keeps you full.

*Lots of good advice from Dancing with the Stars’ Karina Smirnoff.  It’s the top one that is fitting for 365DOLF.  “Never” is a strong word for the entire year, but try and avoid constantly doing the same workout.  This is also a good example of daily advice for both working out and eating right.

SOUL

Therese of Lisieux 1873

*Find a prayer that feeds and satisfies your soul, especially when you cannot summon a single positive thought.

My Daily Prayer will be:

Short Prayer for Growing Faith

Dear Lord, help me – every single morning – to find faith in the midst of the chaos. Give me the desire and ability to see You, hear You, talk to You, and give thanks to You. 

MONEY

Cuba Gooding Jr. 1968

“Show me the money!”

Show Me the Money: Tips On Saving

The Five Dollar Challenge: Anytime you come across a $5 bill, put it away. At the end of the year, use that money towards a fun big purchase, or put it towards your savings account.

*You actually don’t have to wait the entire year.  Tom Cruise’s birthday is July 3 (literally almost born on the 4th of July), watch Jerry Maguire on that day and when Cuba Gooding Jr. says his famous line, brake open that piggy bank and count all of those $5 bills, while saying “show me the money!”

ENTERTAINMENT

Dax Shepard 1975

*Listen to his podcast – Armchair Expert – last year’s most downloaded new podcast on iTunes.

FOOD

Kate Bosworth 1983

*For Bosworth, a typical breakfast might include a goat cheese omelet with avocado and tomatoes.

CROSSOVER: *As far as meals are concerned, take some more advice from Katrina Smirnoff and work some watermelon, asparagus, and spinach into your diet, also in her honor, have a Smirnoff on ice to wind down for the day.

WHO GOT SNUBBED? – Nathaniel Bacon

REVIEW

  • Take Super Quizzes
  • Mix up your workouts
  • Have a daily prayer
  • Start the $5 challenge
  • Listen to Dax’s podcast
  • Goat cheese omelet with avocado and tomatoes

NEW YEAR’S DAY – 2020

Day 1 of 365 Days of Living Famously

 

MIND

Paul Revere 1735

Image result for paul revere

*Paul Revere gets all of the credit for his midnight ride. Very few people know that William Dawes was also involved. Be Paul Revere this year. Control the narrative in your life and take credit for what you deserve. Don’t be William Dawes.

BODY

Morris Chestnut 1969

MONEY

Betsy Ross 1752

*She worked hard for others, but it was to keep her upholstery business alive.  By the end of this year, hopefully you will realize how important it is to strive for your own business – not to make someone else rich.

ENTERTAINMENT

Verne Troyer 1969 – watch Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002)

Image result for mini me

*The last and best of the Austin Powers trilogy.  Maybe start a New Year’s Day tradition of watching all three.  Use Verne Troyer’s character “Mini Me” as inspiration to start the New Year.

FOOD

The Catcher in the Rye (1951)

I’m a very light eater. I really am. That’s why I’m so damn skinny. I was supposed to be on this diet where you eat a lot of starches and crap, to gain weight and all, but I didn’t ever do it. When I’m out somewhere, I generally just eat a Swiss cheese sandwich and a malted milk. It isn’t much, but you get quite a lot of vitamins in the malted milk.

*Start a New Years Day tradition of a swiss cheese sandwich (on rye) and a malted milk

WHO GOT SNUBBED? J. Edgar Hoover 1895

  • Control the narrative
  • Morris Chestnut 10-minute workout
  • Embrace the differences in people
  • Your current job is a way to make money for your future business
  • Watch Goldmember
  • Swiss cheese on rye and a malted milk
