MY BIRTHDAY (Not famous yet)
Gerald Ford 1913
“Personal excellence can be achieved by a visionary goal, through planning, dedicated execution, and total follow-through.”
*Strive for personal excellence. Plan, execute, and follow through with your visionary goal.
Conor McGregor 1988
“I’m always eating good food,”
“Depending how far out I am from a fight, I might cut out a few things. You wouldn’t catch me eating too much in terms of take-out. I love water and coconut water, but I never drink energy drinks—ever! I just eat good, quality meat and keep hydrated.”
*Eat quality meat and drink lots of water and coconut water today. Get a workout in at your local MMA gym.
Woody Guthrie 1912
Woody sang for those who carried a heavy burden or had come upon hard times. His words gave a voice to their struggle, and his songs gave them hope and strength.
*Speak up for those who carry a burden. Give them hope and strength. Listen to some Woody Guthrie for motivation.
Darrelle Revis 1985
Revis bets on himself and rarely gives in, making it well known to his employer that if he is unhappy he will not play.
*Bet on yourself today. Don’t give in. If you are not happy at work, quit and start your dream business today.
Dan Smith 1986 – listen to Bastille
“I like to think my parents are relieved that I ended up in a band and not as a serial killer.”
*Listen to Bastille on Bastille Day. I’m guessing this is why Dan Smith named the group Bastille.
Tom Carvel 1906 – ice cream cake
*Enjoy a Carvel ice cream cake on my birthday.
End the day with a glass of Conor McGregor’s Proper Twelve whiskey.
