MIND

Benjamin Harrison 1833

“I knew that my staying up would not change the election result if I were defeated, while if elected I had a hard day ahead of me. So I thought a night’s rest was best in any event.”

*No matter what happens today – good or bad, a night’s rest is best.

SIDENOTE: In 1896, Benjamin Harrison married his deceased wife’s niece, Mary Lord Dimmick, a widow nearly thirty years his junior.

BODY

“I’ve learned to appreciate my body for what it is. It helps to remind myself how far I’ve come. I recently saw pictures from my first tour, and I spent that whole summer performing in the heat in a red leather jacket because I was ashamed to show my arms. And that was when I was 105 pounds! This tour, I’ve had the confidence to show my arms at every single concert. It may seem like a small thing, but for me, that’s huge.”

*Appreciate your body. Buy some clothes to show it off. Listen to Demi for motivation. Buy her book – Staying Strong 365 Days a Year, and see how it compares to 365DOLF.

SOUL

Robert Plant 1948 – listen to Led Zeppelin

“And a new day will dawn for those who stand long, and the forests will echo with laughter.”
(“Stairway to Heaven”, Led Zeppelin IV)

*Hang in there, it’ll come around. Time and patience can win the day. Be hopeful and stand strong on your stairway to Heaven.

MONEY

Don King 1931

“He’s poor, and he’s telling lies. Give me $400 million and say you robbed me. I loved Tyson. We made a lot of money together. He threw his away. I kept mine.”

You deserve to be safe if you lose your job and free of bad debt. The next time you’re tempted to spend, ask yourself: Do you deserve this $25 dinner, or do you deserve more?

*Are you throwing your money away or keeping it? It’s not every day that you’ll be told to be like Don King, but today is the day to keep your money – you deserve it.
