{Neil deGrasse Tyson’s response on Reddit when asked “What can you tell a young man looking for motivation in life itself?”}

So stop waiting for “motivation” or “inspiration” to come to you and start making your own.

Learn a little more every day.

Be of benefit to those around you.

Pretty simple when Neil boils it down, huh?

  2. Well, the second two things you just do, but the first one can be tougher. For me, it's noticing when something makes me feel alive, paying attention to that spark and doing lots more of it.
