MIND

“DON’T BE AFRAID.”

*Easier said than done. But simple advice that says it all. I am afraid. I’m afraid to quit my job. I’m afraid that 365DOLF isn’t going to be the runaway success that it is in my mind. If you are reading this, I’ve overcome at least some of my fears. Now it’s your turn.

BODY

Clay Matthews 1986

“I work out six days a week, Monday through Saturday, with Sunday being my day off. My days consist of everything from field work, to being in the weight room, mixing in yoga and Pilates, boxing, and sometimes MMA.”

*Pick one… weight room, yoga, Pilates, boxing, or MMA

SOUL

Frank Gore 1983

“At Miami I was up, I was down, I was written off. When I was up, people wanted to be around me. When I was down, nobody’s around.’ What I went through in college made me the kind of person, I am.”

*Reflect on the ups and downs in your life. Who was there for you? How have these times made you the person that you are today?

MONEY

“You are better off trying something and having it not work and learning from that than not doing anything at all.”

“To this day, I still haven’t touched one dime of my signing bonus or NFL contract money. I live off my marketing money and haven’t blown it on any big-money expensive cars, expensive jewelry or tattoos and still wear my favorite pair of jeans from high school.”

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.
