“We have forty million reasons for failure, but not a single excuse.”

*Failure is an inevitable part of life, and it is something that each person has to deal with. As Kipling points out, there are no excuses for failure. When you fail, learn from your failure and move on with grace and courage toward success.

BODY

Lebron James 1984

The Lebron workout involves a mix of low-level reps, which are designed to activate his muscle cells, combined with body weight staples such as pull-ups and push-ups.

*Lebron has become an outstanding businessman and philanthropist. But its his body that gave him the opportunity to do those things. Do the Lebron workout including pull-ups and push-ups, then play an entire game of basketball.

SOUL

Sandy Koufax 1935

By not taking the mound for the Dodgers against the Twins on Oct. 6, 1965, on the Day of Atonement, the holiest day on the Jewish calendar, he became a cultural touchstone.

*Be willing to take a stand for the things that you believe in. Stand for something or you’ll fall for anything.

MONEY

Tiger Woods 1975

After a long investigation, 15 women revealing they had affairs with Woods, including his sex addiction therapist, Nordegren and Woods divorced. Their settlement was about $100 million dollars.

*Have fun with your money but not at the expense of the people that you’ve made a commitment to. You deserve to lose your money if you hurt the ones you are supposed to be the closest to.

ENTERTAINMENT

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.
