DESIRE – The stepping stone to success

All major achievements or success stories begin from a spark in the mind. The ability to dream and set goals is what makes the human race supreme. We always crave for luxury, more comfort and a better lifestyle- this is what keeps the mind active.

A simple example to illustrate how desires can be fulfilled is the discovery of the automobile. The sole reason for this discovery was because someone had the desire to lead a better life- in short, luxury! Have you ever thought; why are then the majority of people struggle to meet their daily requirements; be it money or time? The answer is DESIRE. It is the factor of how much more you want out of life.

There is an outstanding success rate, in people who have believed in the concept of desire and stood up for it. Most people do confuse desire with wishing. They wish to lead a better life, have a raise in the salary, get out of debt. Merely wishing will not take you places. Your dream, however small, should be embossed into your subconscious mind. Only when your dreams are imprinted in the subconscious mind, will you take the necessary steps to achieve it.

Desire is basically the stepping stone to success. In simple words, it is a never ending craving for something which will not let us lead a peaceful existence, unless satisfied!!! Desires are as vital to human beings as water is to fish! All successful people for that sake are crazy dreamers. They went out and achieved whatever they desired.

When Henry Ford had an itch in his mind to have his name on all the cars on the street – his friends thought he was insane!! When Bill Gates dreamt of having his software on every computer – people around him thought he was out of his mind! Hence, we all should be working progressively to attain our goals. It’s not mind boggling to understand the determination and will power of the brain to achieve these desires.

If you are dissatisfied with your present circumstances, it’s simply because you aren’t doing what you dreamt of doing. There are only 2 solutions for this situation.
1. Either you can program your mind to start liking the things you are doing.
2. You can intensify your desire. You will be amazed at how the subconscious mind will find a way out.
Napoleon Hill’s six ways to turn desire to gold
1.Fix in your mind the exact amount of money you desire. It is not sufficient merely to say "I want plenty of money" Be definite as to the amount.
2.Determine what exactly what you intend to give in return for the money you desire. There is no such reality as something for nothing.
3.Establish a definite date when you intend to possess the money you desire
4.Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire, and begin at once. Put this plan to action
5.Write out a clear, concise statement of the amount of money you intend to acquire, name the time limit for its acquisition. Describe clearly the plan through which you intend to accumulate it
6.Read your written statement aloud, twice daily, once just before retiring at night, and once after arising in the morning. As you read- see and feel and believe yourselves already in possession of the money.
