Reflecting on his accomplishments despite all the obstacles, Aaron said it was his motto that got him through: “Always keep swinging.”

*As I continue to work on 365DOLF, I have good days and bad days. I’m going to steal from the home run king and have the motto of “Always keep typing”. Whatever your goals are, come up with your own motto – “Always keep __________”

*Two of the greatest modern day soccer players were born on the same day! Take this day to use the above workouts to focus on power, explosion, balance, and speed. Yes, you must do both workouts. Research and find a place where you can play soccer on a day like today.

“I don’t really love organized religion, but I love the Lord. I love the Bible and what the Bible teaches, what God teaches us through his word. But I don’t love organized religion because I think so often the point is missed. The real point is to try to live by the Ten Commandments as much as we can, and just think that through. I feel like we’ve lost a lot of that common sense in life today … Old-fashioned values.”

*Use common sense and old-fashioned values to guide your soul.

“I didn’t make enough money in my sport to retire,”

Staubach employees are happy for that. Roger made them a bundle in his second career.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
