“We are what we are because we have been what we have been”

*You are not chained to your past. It is not your future. Get rid of your past and start tracing the life that you want today.


Chris Paul 1985

“If you want to live a healthy lifestyle, it really takes planning—and I mean we plan everything else in our life, so you have to plan your food. If not, when you get hungry you’re just gonna stop at the fast food joint.”

*Plan your healthy lifestyle. Meal prep for the entire week.


Rubin Carter 1937

“Rubin, my Christian name, comes from the Book of Genesis, chapter 29, verse 32, of the Holy Scriptures. Other than both of us being black, that’s about the only thing the Bible and I ever had in common.”

*Watch the movie The Hurricane and see why Carter feels this way.

BONUS: Meek Mill 1987 – after watching The Hurricane, watch Free Meek and see how much these two have in common – besides a birthday.


Willie Mays 1931

Mays had to finance his retirement by hiring on (at a $100,000 salary) as a “greeter” at a gambling casino.

*How will you have to finance your retirement? Hopefully with proper planning, you won’t have to finance your retirement at all – just enjoy it.

Naomi Scott 1993

In the morning, I would have buckwheat pancakes

For lunch, I would have a roast dinner – a proper English roast, stuffing, the whole lot.

For dessert I would have to have bread and butter pudding.

For dinner, I probably would go for my mum’s chicken curry, spinach curry and dahl, and homemade chapatis.

For dessert, I’m gonna go with a banoffee pie.

*The above is an ideal day of eating for Naomi Scott. Take Chris Paul’s advice and plan all of this food out for the entire week.

SNUB – Cam Heyward 1989

  • Plan your healthy lifestyle
  • Watch The Hurricane
  • Plan for retirement
  • Watch Syriana
  • Eat like Princess Jasmine

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.
