Weekend inspiration: Find your fire, and never be tired again

“That’s the secret. He was on fire for something. He was pouring himself out, and you never lose energy and vitality in so doing. You only lose energy when life becomes dull in your mind. Your mind gets bored and therefore tired doing nothing. You don’t have to be tired. Get interested in something. Get absolutely enthralled in something. Throw yourself into it with abandon. Get out of yourself. Be somebody. Do something. Don’t sit around moaning about things, reading the papers, and saying, ‘Why don’t they do something?’ The man who is out doing something isn’t tired.”

– Norman Vincent Peale, The Power of Positive Thinking
