The goal you set must be challenging. At the same time, it should be realistic and attainable, not impossible to reach. It should be challenging enough to make you stretch, but not so far that you break.
– Rick Hansen
A strong desire means greater motivation and greater accomplishment while a weak desire means weaker motivation and lesser accomplishment. Men of great successes are men of tremendous desires and imaginations. The starting point of all achievement is desire.
People who achieve great successes are people with intense desire for something. Most of the time they have a definiteness of purpose that they spend the majority of time at. A definiteness of purpose causes a person’s entire being to focus upon that particular object of desire. With intense concentration anything is possible and people of tremendous achievement have intense power of concentration. Doing the one thing is their secret to fame, prosperity and power. These people have already determined their goals in the early part of their life and spend the rest of their life pursuing it.
A man would not even wake up in the morning if he didn’t have a desire to live. The same rule applies in all areas of the life. When the man thinks he must do a certain thing, that’s when he puts all his being and uses all the potential given to him by the creator. The power we possess is infinite and we will never know what we can accomplish until we intensify our desire to the stage where we can see it with our mind’s eyes even before it manifests in reality.
A poor boy Andrew Carnegie who came to America with nothing became the richest and one of the most powerful men of his time because of the desire. Another poor boy who grew up in a log cabin but dreamt of bigger and better things became the savior of millions of blacks thus causing the end of the slavery that had been a curse over America. Similarly, great inventions have come out of a great desire to innovate. Scientists and geniuses like Edison and Einstein spent most of their life focusing and thinking about the kind of inventions they wanted to create.
A weak desire will always produce weak results. A strong desire will produce great results. There is nothing that can stop a man who has made the decision to win. Napoleon who came out of nothing and nowhere became the emperor of France out of sheer desire and persistence. With no money and no aristocratic background, he ruled one of the most powerful empire and conquered many lands thus beginning the herald of a new age.
Oak sleeps in the acorn, bird sleeps in the egg, a great achievement first springs inside the soul as a dream. Dreams are seedlings of the reality. What exists in the invisible will become visible in just a matter of time. The high skyscrapers, great paintings and great works of arts are just the manifestation of inner desire of those visionaries. A man with no strong purpose will end up being lost in the maze of life where there are only miseries, difficulties and wants.
A strong desire to become a better person will force you to find ways to become a better person. A person who really wants to improve himself will read books, listen to tapes and associate with people who are trying their best to develop positive qualities. This creative force that motivates and inspires people to become better is what has caused new developments and advancements throughout the human history.
Thus, desire is the beginning of all great successes. So, if you want to accomplish something, write down your dreams, and write down your “whys” and your mind will figure out a way to make it happen. You will be guided to be at the right place at the right time doing the right things and saying the right thing to accomplish your divine destiny.
