    Be Better Today (Season 2, Episode 3) – LL Cool J

    I feel I can’t talk about comebacks without sharing this famous lyric from LL Cool J: “Don’t call it a comeback! I’ve been here for years.”

    For us, this is a lesson in self-worth and faith. If you believe in yourself, others will eventually notice. They will view it as a comeback. You’ll know you’ve been here for years. No matter what, you’ve remained positive in your abilities, lived your best life and waited for the rest of the world to catch up. They will - be patient, and ready to knock them out.

    Now, let’s get out there and #bebettertoday!

    Episode Notes

    Be Better Today (Season 2, Episode 2) – Mark Spitz

    Continuing the theme of coming back, there is a quote from American Olympic swimmer Mark Spitz I must share: “By making a comeback, I’m changing the attitude of people toward me. If I’d known that people would react so enthusiastically, I’d have done it years ago.”

    Even though this quote may have been said somewhat tongue-in-cheek, there is a great message. The lesson is that people are much more welcoming of our efforts than we think. Instead of assuming others are harshly judging you, assume they will embrace you as you put your best self forward. Think about how much more you will do knowing most everyone is on your side.

    We're Back! (And a Quote from Billy Crystal)

    We're Back! (And a Quote from Billy Crystal)

    Episode Notes

    Be Better Today (Season 2, Episode 1) – We’re Back!

    I thought I was done with this podcast. I have a few others – The No Fear Project, That Wine Pod, FatMan Chronicles – that keep me plenty busy. But I couldn’t get Be Better Today out of my mind.

    When I decided to take this project back up, it reminded me of this quote from Billy Crystal: "What's so fascinating and frustrating and great about life is that you're constantly starting over, all the time, and I love that."

    As we kick off another season of the Be Better Today quickcast, remember it is ok to start over. Do the things you are passionate about and love the process.

    Now, let’s get out there and #bebettertoday!

    Ep 183 - A Special Jimmy V Quote

    Ep 183 - A Special Jimmy V Quote

    For the final episode, I had to go with a special message from Jim Valvano - "Don't give up. Don't ever give up." I made a commitment six months ago to record an episode per day and this is the culmination of that effort. If there is nothing else you remember, please take this quote to heart.



    Thank you for listening and if you'd like to contact me, please send an email via my other podcast to fatmanchronicles@outlook.com.
