WEAR A COAT DAY
William Henry Harrison 1773
*Everyone told Harrison that he was too old to be president, so he wanted the world to see that he could handle a freezing day without a coat or hat. It cost him his life, but he showed them. Remember that you have nothing to prove to anyone but yourself.
Michael B. Jordan 1987
“I hated it. You know, at first you feel like shit, you’re hurting. When things start getting a little easier, when you start lifting weight you never lifted before, when you start bench-pressing 225 pounds 10 times and it ain’t nothing, and then you start giving hugs to girls and they’re, like, feeling you up a little and you think, ‘What’s this?’—then it’s, ‘This is all right.’ So I learned to love it when I started seeing results.”
*After this Michael B. Jordan workout, find someone to hug and see if they notice the results. Watch Creed for motivation.
Mia Farrow 1945
Grounded in her human-rights work, Mia Farrow can look back at another triumph—the loving home she created for 14 adopted and biological children.
*What work grounds you?
What can you look back at as another triumph?
Charlie Day 1976
“I don’t think you should just do what makes you happy. Do what makes you great,”
“Do what’s uncomfortable and scary and hard but pays off in the long run…Let yourself fail. Fail and pick yourself up and fail again. Without that struggle, what is your success anyway?”
*Don’t wait for your break. Make your break. Make it happen for you.
Joe Pesci 1943 – watch Goodfellas
*Watch Joe Pesci win an Oscar in Goodfellas
John Kruk 1961 – The Kruker
THE KRUKER – Cheesesteak with American, Fried Onions, Ketchup, Mayo
Kruk played 10 seasons in the majors, with the bulk of that time being spent with the Phillies and had a career .300 average, but by the looks of it, his cheesesteaks may be just as good as his hitting.
*Make yourself a Kruker. Eat it while watching Charlie Day in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
SNUB – Amber Valletta 1974
