“You shouldn’t dream your film, you should make it!”

Spielberg was perceived as untalented and was denied entry into UCLA film school 3 times. He was eventually admitted at California State University, but he dropped out in 1968 to make films.

*It doesn’t matter what you’ve been told, or what people perceive you as. Do what you want to do.  Don’t dream your life – make it!

How have you been making your life?

BODY

When Ty went to try out for a team, his father told him, “Don’t come home a failure.”

*When you go to the gym today, don’t come home a failure. Do a Phil Heath workout that would make your father proud.

BONUS: Phil Heath 1979 – the 8x Mr. Olympia works out for an intense 2 hours.

“As a parent, you just want to set your kids up for life because, even if you have all the faith in the world, there will always be challenges. You just want them to have the ability to deal with what comes. As they say, when you pray you never ask for anything directly you just ask God for the ability to make decisions. You hope that your kids will make the right decisions and you thank God for the ability to make those decisions.”

*When you pray today, ask God for the ability to make decisions. Pray that your kids will make the right decisions. And thank God for the ability to make decisions.

MONEY

DIANE KEATON — Mad Money (2008)

What is one way you can have fun with your money?

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.
