“In your personal life and in business, you are your own worst enemy. Or you are your own greatest supporter. What I mean by that is nobody can help you hurt you … as much as you.”

*In your pursuit of success, both professionally and personally, don’t beat yourselves up. Transform self-doubt into self-confidence.

Messi was picked up by Barça after they saw a video of him juggling some fruit.

“He made 113 juggles with an orange,”

*Play a game of soccer or just simply juggle an orange with your knees, feet, and head 113 times.

“It’s not that I’m into myself,”

“It’s that I don’t hate myself. In my career, a lot of people have a problem with being around women who don’t hate themselves. Never hate yourself.”

*Love yourself today because you are perfect just the way you are. Try to only be around people that appreciate your self-confidence.


Chuck Taylor 1901

His brilliance was in being an American and just an entrepreneur.

*Reinvent yourself. Show your brilliance as an American and an entrepreneur. Taylor’s simple shoe is still a “must have” for most young people today. And for those who are trying to look younger than they actually are.

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.
