Jason Varitek only got one hit when he played in the 1984 Little League World Series, but he is the only player to play in the LLWS, College World Series Championship, MLB World Series, Olympics, and World Baseball Classic.

*Don’t let early disappointment keep you down. Keep working towards your dreams.


Alessandra Ambrosio 1981

Alessandra demanded long legs, thinner thighs and a tight buttock. This gave birth to a great idea called “Brazil Butt Lift”


*Perform the Brazil Butt Lift today.


Ethel Kennedy 1928

Despite a life of privilege, Ethel Kennedy is no stranger to tragedy. Her parents were killed in a plane crash in 1955. Besides her husband, she lost two children — Michael in a skiing accident in 1997 and David from a drug overdose in 1984.

*No matter how great someone’s life looks, remember that people are dealing with life’s tragedies all of the time. You don’t know what the people that you encounter today are dealing with.


Michelle Phan 1987

“I didn’t have a road map, I just did it because it was meaningful to me and I wanted to disrupt the beauty industry,”

“The first advice I give to any women who want to become an entrepreneur is find a problem that you see in any industry, and if you’re very passionate about it, find a solution,”

*You might not have a road map – do what is meaningful to you. With YouTube and social media, the sky is the limit to be an entrepreneur. Find a problem and solve it online for people. What industry can you disrupt?

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.
