RELENTLESS OPTIMISM DAY

MIND

Coco Gauff 2004

“Take your mind to another place, take yourself to a practice match, just play. Don’t think about negatives, just think about positives,” Gauff told his daughter.

*Staying calm and thinking positively will lead to success. Take today to think about only positives – as a means for overcoming adversity and achieving success.

BODY

Common 1972

“I wanted to do something special in life, and my deciding to be healthy was part of that decision,”

“When you work out and eat well, then you feel more confident, more vibrant, and your mind is clearer, too.”

*Another day to ELAMM – Eat less And Move More. Work out and eat well today to build on your confidence and make your mind clearer.

SOUL

L. Ron Hubbard 1911

Scientology is an eclectic collage of philosophical and religious notions imaginatively brought together in a loose system by a man with a gift for fantasy.

If you have an interest in self-betterment, simply buy the book SELF ANALYSIS and read it and do the memory exercises in the book.

*By the end of 365DOLF you will come to realize that I am not a big fan of any organized religions. I do believe that we have a soul and there is a God that wants us to have faith in his decisions and be the best people that we can be. Think of buying the book Self Analysis – read it and do the memory exercises for self-betterment.

MONEY

Kaya Scodelario 1992

“Doing a movie like this means I can finance my own independent movies and, eventually, that’s what I want to do, I want to produce, and I want to work with female crews.”

*Your reminder to keep working hard at your current job so that one day you can do the things that you genuinely want to do.

ENTERTAINMENT

William H. Macy 1950 – watch Fargo

*Watch William H. Macy almost win an Oscar in Fargo. You betcha.

SIDE NOTE: Fargo, N.D., deemed the drunkest city in America

FOOD

Mikaela Shiffrin 1995

Breakfast: “I’ll do two eggs and two pieces of whole-wheat toast and sometimes, cereal or oatmeal and fruit.” []

Lunch: The Olympian sticks to lean protein, like chicken or fish, for her midday meal — but she always makes sure to get in salad and a serving of carbohydrates. []

Snack: “Dried mangos are always a good bet” []

Dinner: “I do chicken or steak, pasta, and salad or steamed/roasted vegetables,” []

Her favorite recipe is a Farfalle pasta with edamame, lemon, black pepper, and pecorino.

*Eat like an American two-time Olympic Gold Medalist and World Cup alpine skier.

SNUB – Dana Delany 1956

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.
