When you have a race, there's always a starting and finishing point. In our case, the finishing point is our goal, and the beginning point is our desire for it.
Everybody knows the old saying, “You get what you think about most of the time.” In my opinion, when you're thinking about your goal most of the time, you are putting out a desire for that goal. The more you think about it, the stronger the desire gets, whether you want it to or not. And when your desire gets stronger, you will start to achieve things you didn't know you could do. Just like when someone decides they are going to run a marathon for the first time in their life, their desire is high when they first thought about it, and when they began training. As they consistently train, they'll be able to finish a marathon they never thought they could do.
Just as Hill states, “Barnes succeeded because he chose a definite goal, placed all his energy, all his will power, all his effort, everything back of that goal.” in other words, we must have a thought of our goal, put our energy and focus on to it, make a decision to go after it, and take action in order to reach that goal.
