Stability. Security. The peace of mind that comes from being able to get a decent job and provide for your family, in a country that you feel has a good future ahead of it and that treats people fairly. In a nutshell, that is what people in Britain want – and what the Government I lead is dedicated to building.

*As you continue with 365DOLF, this is what you are looking for in yourself. Hopefully you’ve found many of these things already. Stability. Security. Peace of mind. Decent job (looking for a better one). Providing for your family.

One of the first fundamentals in fitness and in golf is strengthening the core.  The core connects and stabilizes the upper and lower parts of the body. It is important throughout the swing to
“stay connected” and simply rotate your core. Through core strength training
and conditioning I was able to hit the ball longer with a smooth,
easy swing. I was also able to stay fit, strong, and competitive throughout my golfing career.

Ten years after stepping away from the LPGA Tour, Sorenstam’s golf cart is a school bus and her favorite foursome is her family. Still, the player who won 10 majors, shot a 59, and competed in a men’s tournament remains on a first-name basis with the sport—and at peace with her decision to leave competitive golf behind.

Upon opening the doors of Angelus Temple in Los Angeles in 1923, Sister Aimee developed an extensive social ministry, feeding more than 1.5 million people during the Great Depression. She summarized her message into four major points, which she called “the Foursquare Gospel”: Jesus is the Savior, Jesus is the Healer, Jesus is the Baptizer with the Holy Spirit, and Jesus is the Soon-Coming King. She founded the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel, also known as The Foursquare Church, which continues to spread the Foursquare Gospel throughout the world to this day.

Peterman’s story of ambition and survival didn’t end when the movers took away the company.  He felt his vision was valid, even if his management of the company was not.

BREAKFAST

“My go-to is an egg sandwich on a plain bagel. One time I wanted to be healthy and got a gluten-free bagel, but I promise you, they suck.”

LUNCH

“We break for lunch around 1 p.m. I’ll usually have salmon or chicken and veggies,”

SNACKS

I order a lot of green juices and keep them around on set. I have ginger shots in a cooler, and I’ll drink one if I’m feeling low.

Don’t wait for things to happen, make them happen.

Damon and Ben Affleck were struggling to find a place for themselves in the film industry so they decided to write themselves in. Literally.

… it’s just looking for creative ways to break in. If you just sit on your hands it’s never gonna happen, its just too competitive.

They penned a little film by the name of Good Will Hunting and, well, we all know how that worked out, don’t we?

https://www.foxmovies.com/movies/the-martian

Matt has long been devoted to environmental and social issues. Learning about the immense challenges of accessing safe water and sanitation in Sub-Saharan Africa, Matt was inspired to create the H20 Africa Foundation. In 2009, he teamed up with Gary White to merge their organizations and launch Water.org.

https://water.org/

*Make your life happen. Write yourself into the script.

You’ve already watched Good Will Hunting on Robin Williams’ birthday. If you want to watch another Matt Damon movie, watch him in The Martian and go home tonight, put your arms around the people you love and hold them tight. Tell them what they mean to you, and how empty and meaningless your life would be without them.

Life changes in an instant – for the good and the bad. Don’t live a life filled with unsaid words and regret.

Also, think of donating to water.org

“For me, I definitely think their mom is more passionate in hoping they take up the action sports lifestyle, but I hope they take the action sports mentality. Wake up every morning with a passion. Do what you do because you love it; there’s no amount of money worth risking your life for. But if you’re so passionate about it — and just to grow up around this Nitro Circus crew, where every single person is just full of life and passion and wakes up every day with a big smile on their face. I hope [my daughters] take that and realize that — if you like desk jobs or you like art museums or horses or whatever — if you love it, that’s what you should be doing.”

Bruno Mars is one of the world’s biggest music stars and he’s one of the most driven people we’ve ever seen. Just 31, he’s the product of what he calls a “school of rock” education — a working class life of experiences that have taught him the music business. None of it came easily. He’s been broke, busted and nearly homeless. But this week, following the release of his first album in four years, he’s on top of the music world.

Chase is a key piece of SNL’s history, whether establishing “Weekend Update” or pioneering the path from Studio 8H to Hollywood stardom. When asked what he thinks of the current show, he doesn’t hold back, delivering a foul-mouthed appraisal that’s as unforgiving as his critics. “First of all, between you and me and a lamppost, jeez, I don’t want to put down Lorne or the cast, but I’ll just say, maybe off the record, I’m amazed that Lorne has gone so low. I had to watch a little of it, and I just couldn’t f—— believe it.”

THE DINER: Andy Farmer (Chevy Chase), a New York City sportswriter who has moved to rural Vermont to work on his novel

THE SETTING: Dining with his wife at a local café, he’s served multiple helpings of “lamb fries”—and consumes them with great levels of wide-eyed Chase-ian gusto. “Now there’s a man who knows he’s got something good in his mouth!,” observes a much-impressed onlooker.

Easy for a multi-millionaire to say, maybe, but Cowell’s love of the Cartoon Network, American Spirit cigarettes, Sapporo beer and Barbados holidays all serve one purpose: keeping him happy. “If you’re going to cut one thing out of your life, cut out stress,” he says. “It’s the cause of cancer, heart attacks, diseases. If you’re stressed, you’re going to get ill.”

Make a physical list of what you’re stressed about — whatever’s been ruminating in your brain in the wee hours of the night, Molitor says. “You’ll feel better just writing it down because you’re downloading all of those negative thoughts, taking it out of a space where it’s taking up a lot of energy.”

John has said many times in interviews that you will never meet anyone luckier than John Mellencamp. He is grateful for the support of those who have enjoyed his work and career over the years. If he has any advice to offer, it is to be tenacious: John’s found that far too many people quit too soon in the face of early disappointment. While his own early efforts may have been faltering, he stayed with it–and that tenacity has been rewarded with the successes that continue to the present.

With a streak of success, both commercial and critical, Mellencamp finally reclaimed his name. When 1991’s Whenever We Wanted hit record store shelves, it bore the actual name of the man who made it: John Mellencamp.

Well, for all the macho posturing and shirtless horseback photo shoots, he begins his day quite leisurely indeed. In fact, he wakes up late enough that breakfast is served at noon, which is the sort of routine usually reserved only for college students and writers.

On the menu tends to be a large omelet or a bowl of porridge, with quail eggs and a glass of fruit juice on the side. The ingredients are shipped over from the Patriarch Kirill’s own farmland estates too, so you know he’s getting the good stuff. All very nice, but it’s not salmon caught by hand from the stream, or fruit wrenched from the jaws of a mountain bear, is it?

  1. Russian Standard Gold, 40%: £22 for 70cl, Waitrose 

Bling bling! You’re going to need your sunglasses for all the light reflecting off this glitzy bottle. Russian Standard Gold is made with winter wheat and is inspired by an ancient Siberian vodka recipe. How does it differ from the regular Russian Standard vodka? Well, Gold uses extracts of Siberian ginseng, which add caramel notes initially, and then a pepperiness that really lingers – we’re in tingly tongue territory here. And again, there’s that soft mouth feel and creamy finish. We love the embossed bottle, which makes it pretty giftable, too.

During the height of your wrestling career during the ’60s and ‘70s, what was your training like?
I was working out three, sometime three and a half, hours a day with weights. I would work out in the morning because I wanted to be very rested up for the wrestling matches at night. So I would do a workout, then have a light breakfast, and then I would go to bed for a few hours. I would eat an early dinner no later than 3:00 so that it would be fully digested by the time I went in the ring. So yeah, I worked out very hard and heavy, but I always used to try and take a couple hours nap afterward just to recoup and rest up.

The scope of his financial empire was easy to overlook, as he named many of his companies not for himself but for his employees, the inventors and engineers who designed the assorted dynamos, meters, voltage regulators, and transformers that kept electricity humming. He offered employees a pension plan and relatively good wages, with sick leave and paid recuperation time after on-the-job accidents when neither was required by law. Andrew Carnegie once said that “Westinghouse could have made a lot more money during his lifetime if he hadn’t treated his workers so well”.

THE READER (2008)
On her sixth Oscar nomination, Winslet was finally able to take home the prize but her win remains one of the strangest in Academy history. This film features Winslet as a woman who has an affair during WWII with a young man and then is later tried for Nazi war crimes. In order to not compete with herself, Winslet was campaigned as lead for “Revolutionary Road” and supporting for “The Reader”, even though she is clearly giving a lead performance.

Ray Kroc took the long road to success, and it wasn’t until he was 52 years old that he finally hit it big with McDonald’s and could enjoy the spoils of his capitalistic victory. Just goes to show, never give up, because success can come at any time if you just keep at it!

Rutherford B. Hayes 1822

In Rutherford B. Hayes’ hometown of Delaware, Ohio, there’s a memorial to the late U.S. president; it’s a plaque that marks his birthplace, which is now a gas station. In Paraguay, people might find this fact horribly offensive. Perhaps that’s because the country is littered with Hayes memorials—from statues to schools to streets named in his honor. There’s even a city in Paraguay called Villa Hayes, which lies in the middle of a province called Presidente Hayes, which is roughly the size of South Carolina.

*It truly is fascinating how beloved Hayes is in Paraguay and how forgotten he is in U.S. history. Research this more for a great DYK with work colleagues or family.

I want them to respect the divine in everyone. And understand that with privilege comes responsibility. Everyone has a responsibility towards this larger family of man, but especially if you’re privileged, that increases your responsibility. I want them to understand the joy of empowerment, of service. I want them to understand that doing the right thing is a joyful experience, that it isn’t a grind.

Now is the time to take charge of your personal finances. Here are three easy things to remember:

  1. Start with small steps.
  2. Start when you’re young.
  3. It’s your life and your money.

http://www.pbs.org/your-life-your-money/chapter_01_russell_simmons.php

https://njaes.rutgers.edu/sshw/message/message.php?p=Finance&m=312

Russell Simmons may be worth an estimated $325 million, but that doesn’t mean his two daughters have unlimited spending power.

On a recent back-to-school shopping spree at J.Crew in East Hampton, the music and Phat Farm clothing mogul treated his daughters to some new threads.

But Ming Lee, 12, and Aoki Lee, 9, were each given a budget … $750, a source told the New York Post.

*Even if you’re not young, it’s your life and your money so take charge of your personal finances today. The first small step is Check Your Cash Flow – Figure out how much money you have coming in each month and how much you pay out for household expenses. Teach this lesson to your children.

“When I was having my crazy moments post-Clueless, I was being called ‘Fat Girl’”—a cruel play on her role as Batgirl in 1997 Batman & Robin. “It didn’t make me think, Oh yes, I’m going to try really hard to be [what you think I should be]. My response was, ‘Hell no.’ I had no interest in being famous or maintaining any kind of fame. If you told me that acting meant I was going to be called fat and have to do things a certain way, then I was like, ‘F off.’”

Use elaborate metaphors to make your point

Problems at work? Don’t make excuses for your under par performance – employ a creative/humorous/arrogant metaphor to explain why you have failed to do precisely anything your boss asked you to do.

Like Zlatan at Barcelona.

“When you buy me, you are buying a Ferrari. If you drive a Ferrari you put premium fuel in the tank, you drive on to the motorway and you floor the accelerator.

Counterpoint to his darker side, Mewshaw tells how Vidal—an otherwise barbed tongue who once said, “Every time a friend succeeds, a little bit of me dies”—had a soul. He often helped others on the sly without drawing attention to himself.

Al Sharpton 1954

Fortunately for Mr. Sharpton and others who owe taxes, the IRS isn’t too efficient. In fact, a recent government report says the IRS flubs 57% of tax collections.

One other big lesson from Mr. Sharpton? Records.

Keeping good records can help you in a tax controversy. In fact, good records can help keep you out of tax trouble in the first place. Does the IRS care about record keeping? Yes.

Alicia Vikander 1988 – watch The Danish Girl

If there was any early obstacle, it may have been Alicia’s coloring: She is not the ice sculpture that Hollywood often imagines for its Nordics. Again and again, she has been asked to wear long sleeves and SPF 100 in order to help the makeup department conjure the desired pallor. “Two years of films where I had to be white as a ghost,” she says now, laughing. “But I’m a real Swede! In fact, I’m a quarter Finnish. Here I go, exploding stereotypes.”

Love knows no boundaries.

Despite the turn of events, Gerda still loves both Einar and Lili, and tries with all her might to accept what was happening to her husband.

Fred DeLuca 1947 – foot long sub from Subway

DeLuca co-founded the hugely successfully chain at 17 in Bridgeport, Connecticut, with Peter Buck in 1965. Since then, Subway has grown to over 42,000 outlets worldwide. In 2011, the Wall Street Journal reported that the company had surpassed McDonald’s in terms of outlets. The company’s success continued with the $5 foot long, though a bizarre lawsuit in 2012 famously claimed the sandwiches weren’t really a one foot in length.
