If you really want something, you will get it! It’s true: desire is a powerful force that can’t easily be stopped. Think about your goal, about what you want to achieve in life, and ask yourself the following questions:
● Do you really want to reach your goal?
● Do you want to reach your goal so badly you will never give up?
● What are you willing to sacrifice to reach your goal?
● In what circumstances would you stop reaching for your goal?
If you really want something, really really want it, then you will never quit, no matter what the circumstances are! If you really want to reach a goal, you will find the means! Where there’s a will, there’s a way!
Your desire is the fire that provides you with the energy to reach your goals and to excel. You know that a little fire does not provide enough warmth or energy. It is thus extremely important that there is a strong fire burning within you that provides you with the necessary energy to reach your goal.
When your desire to reach your goal is weak or mediocre, you won’t muster enough energy to get there and you will quit half way.
An intense desire will always get you closer to your goal. If you don’t reach your goal, it’s because your desire is not intense enough!
This intense desire is your passion: a burning desire to achieve something and to excel. If you are not sure whether your desire is strong enough, do the following exercise : take a piece of paper and write down all the reasons why you want to reach this goal. Make a list of all the benefits you can imagine. Answer this question: WHY would you like to reach your goal? What is the gain, the pleasure that you will get? What are the benefits that make it worth the effort?
Write down all the benefits that you will get when you reach your goal. Write down at least 10 ways in which you will personally benefit. The more reasons you find, the more powerful is your desire!
It’s a good idea to read these benefits every morning. This will help you stay connected with your goal during the day, and you will be all the more motivated and inspired. Desire wins over obstacles. No matter what is stopping you from reaching your goal, a strong and intense desire will always overcome the obstacles.
To reach your goal, you need to do more than just write it down. You need to feel a burning desire to have, to become, and to do what you want. Your desire needs to be very intense in order to fuel your energy to keep you moving forward without giving up! What is this desire, this passion? It is what makes people work for hours, from early in the morning till late in the evening. Their desire dominates their conversations, their thoughts and their actions.
Take some time to consider this : do you really want to reach your goal so badly that you will never quit under any circumstance?
