Fire has always been a symbol of passion, so it is natural that when you reflect on what you like to do, the image of this element comes to mind. What is your fire? What is the thing that you like to do above all else? Whether you already know what your fire is or are still looking for it, I suggest that you read Finding Your Fire and Keeping It Hot: Discovering Your Why, Your Passion, Your Purpose in Life by Diana Stout. In this easy-to-read book full of helpful advice, Stout will help you find your fire and tell you how to protect it, show you which universal laws can help you, and even warn you about yourself or someone else who will try to make your fire die. This is a fascinating journey in search of your 'why.'

Finding Your Fire and Keeping It Hot is a book that will change your life for the better. I appreciated the way Diana Stout explains complex concepts such as universal laws and setting goals clearly and understandably for anyone. Although the book makes many references to writing because this is what the author wanted to do more than anything else, the concepts she expresses here are easily applicable to any field that interests you. I suggest you follow them so that you can live your passion. I am sure many readers will thrive after reading this book. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for their why and who has not yet found it or has not yet dared to live it.

You can be so busy with living that you fail to find the intensity that makes life worth living. Everyone has a passion, and the lucky ones take the time to find and develop it.

Do you live life with enthusiasm or just endure it? Maybe you see others being excited about what they do and wonder if you could ever be that happy and content. If so, this book is for you. Why do people not pursue their fire? In Finding Your Fire and Keeping It Hot, Diana Stout explains why so many people just live instead of thriving. Her probing questions get right to the point and help the reader differentiate between things they just do and what fills their inner being with joy. Diana includes the Laws of the Universe and explains how they can be used to increase your passion. As the name implies, these Laws can work for you or against you, but Diana shows you how to use them to your advantage. Her passion is writing and her illustrations reflect that, but the principles are universally applicable.
