As DJ Khaled often says, “it’s a cold world out there. Bundle up.” A lot of people do not want you to succeed, but you have the ability to! YOU are in control of your life and YOU hold your key to success.

*Pursue the path for your life. Work hard. Enjoy life. Do your best.


Rita Ora 1990

“I do circuit training. I usually work out for one or two hours, depending on how much time I have. I do three circuits and repeat that three times. I mostly focus on my thighs and my bum, so I do a lot of squats and weight lifting. And I do one circuit of cardio. What I’ve learned is that you can take your time with training. You don’t have to beat yourself up as long as you get in the workouts that you need. I used to push myself until I felt sick. But I’m approaching it differently now. I enjoy working out. And I like the aftermath—that feeling of contentment.”

*Complete Rita Ora’s circuit training with lots of squats, weight lifting, and cardio. Take your time but get your workout in so you can get that feeling of contentment. Listen to her music for motivation.

“People are very defensive about religion a lot of the time. They want to try to bring out a reaction in you that’s in some way Bible-bashing or finger-pointing, because that’s their expectation. For me, though, it’s my rock. That’s how I was brought up and it’s made me who I am.”

*What is your rock? How were you brought up? What has made you who you are?


Rich Little 1938

“I invested in a lot of buildings, condos and stuff like that,”

“And that was great for a while but then everything started getting older, which meant earthquake, fire and all kinds of other insurance, so I sold off my portion and put most of my money into government bonds.”

“It was a great move for me and has left me in pretty good shape… living off interest and dividends and not touching the principal.”

Most government bonds are backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government.

*Imitate Rich Little and put your money in government bonds today.


Tina Turner 1939

“I may not be able to get that class, because I didn’t act my life, I lived it. I am Tina Turner. I am raunchy. But I know I’m a lady and that deep inside of me there’s a craving for class.”

*Show some class today and listen to Tina Turner.

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.
