Norman Vincent Peale advised, “Get absolutely enthralled with something. Throw yourself into it with abandon. Get out of yourself. Be somebody. Do something.” His words apply to you. When you plunge wholeheartedly into life, you’ll discover that the more you contribute to your world, the more your world will contribute back to you.
So don’t settle for a lukewarm existence. Instead, make the character-building choice to become genuinely involved in life. The world needs your enthusiasm . . . and so, by the way, do you.
