The secret in life to never getting tired is simple. Live your truth. 

When you’re doing what you’re passionate about you never actually get tired. You may be in need of serious rest on a regular basis, but you won’t get tired. Being tired is the pits. 

When you are tired, it’s actually a pretty sure sign you are on the wrong track. If you are tired of your job you might want to think about a graceful exit. You are not doing your employer, or yourself, any favors here. And you are not excelling. You can’t. Because you don’t love it. You will only excel at what you love.

I’ve known too many people who describe their most constant state as that of being ‘tired.’ Not worn out or exhausted, just tired. Tired most all the time. Some report they even wake uptired. I can relate. I was in that place so many years ago. It’s not pretty.

Waking up tired all of the time is basically depression, but the state of ‘being tired’ is a sure sign that you’re just not doing what you’re passionate about. For whatever reason, you’re not living your truth. Your purpose or passion is essentially what you were put on this earth to do. It’s your very own spiritual fingerprint, and no two are exactly the same. We are all priceless originals, but we can quickly fall into a rut. We become a slave to a routine, because its comfortable. We start doing ordinary and average, when we are built for extraordinary and excellence.
