We all want something out of life otherwise we wouldn’t be here. Something drives us forward each day. It’s the things in our lives that we lack, that are missing, that create in us the desire to want to change. The driving force for you may be money, love, fame (the need to be recognized and accepted), or something else entirely.
In all of the universe nothing stays still. Everything is moving. Absolutely everything. Even the Earth and the rocks, which seem to be standing still, are changing there state from moment to moment. In any two moments nothing in the universe is ever the same. When things begin to stagnate they die. You could say that movement is life. Ceasing to change is ceasing to BE.
So what are you striving for? What are your goals? What are your dreams? What are the dreams that you’re afraid to dream?
As I mentioned in the last post I’ve been reading “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill and it has really inspired me to bring into reality my dreams and desires. In order to experience success we must have not only a desire but a BURNING DESIRE which consumes our thoughts night and day. We must live and breath it.
Dr. Miller Reese Hutchinson, consulting engineer and long-time associate of Thomas A. Edison commented on the book saying “This is not a novel. It is a textbook on individual achievement that came directly from the experiences of hundreds of America’s most successful men. It should be studied, digested and meditated upon.” He goes on to say “A real student will not merely read this book, he will absorb its contents and make them his own.”
What is it going to take for you to succeed? For you to achieve greatness? A BURNING DESIRE is a good start. With it we can overcome all obstacles because defeat only reaches us when we give up. With BURNING DESIRE we can work our way through all of the obstacles that may turn up. And there’s sure to be plenty of obstacles in the way if we truly want to succeed.
If you’ve been discouraged in the past, disappointed with what life has brought you, take heart, it’s not over yet! This is just a small taste of what we’ll be looking into. We’ll be going over the precise qualities needed to find everything you want in life over the next few weeks. I hope you never give up on your dreams and are inspired to do something today to bring them into reality.
