BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, November 11th, 2011 by Norman Vincent Peale in THE POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING

“You only lose energy when
life becomes dull in your mind. Your mind gets bored and therefore
tired of 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 person who is out doing something isn’t
tired. If you’re not getting into good causes, no wonder you’re tired.
You’re disintegrating. You’re deteriorating. You’re dying on the vine.
The more you lose yourself in something bigger than yourself, the more
energy you will have. You won’t have time to think about yourself and
get bogged down in your emotional difficulties.”

     Norman Vincent Peale, in “The Power of Positive Thinking”

The host of the show, author and speaker John St. Augustine, is a really great guy who I was introduced to about three and half years ago through my dear friend Laura Hansen, who passed away in March of 2010. The interview will be streamed live, so IF you are interested in listening to it on the Web you can click on this link or on the graphic to your right. I believe the show also will be available as a Podcast for listening as an on-demand link at some point. Once I have that link available I’ll post it here on Pondercentral. It’s going to be great fun! Thanks for your time and consideration.
