You only lose energy when life becomes dull in your mind

In life we must put energy to listen, observe and absorb and to focus us on the right things.


"You only lose energy when life becomes dull in your mind.
Your mind gets bored and therefore tired of doing nothing.
Get interested in something!
Get absolutely enthralled in something!
Get out of yourself!
Be somebody!
Do something.
The more you lose yourself in something bigger than yourself,
the more energy you will have."
- Norman Vincent Peale

"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit,
but in humility consider others better than yourselves.
Each of you should look not only to your own interests,
but also to the interests of others."
Philippians 2:3-4

Lord let me have my eyes set on the right things
and let me use my energy well.
