Desire:  The Starting Point of All Achievement

 

Close your eyes and imagine this image: He may have resembled a tramp, but his thoughts were those of a king! No matter what I resemble to others, no matter what my outside appearance may look like, not the color of my skin, not my hair, or the clothes that I wear will determine where I will go in this life. But it’s my THOUGHTS that will take me places that my Open eyes have never seen. “What other people think of you is none of your business.” – Regina Brett. It ONLY matters what I think about myself.

Just like Mr. Barnes, I have created a plan so that I can attain my soul’s desire purpose. Now, I am determined to stand by my Desire until it becomes my reality.

Now that I have a written plan, I can clearly see how I will break the steps down into smaller pieces and step into action moving me closer to my goal. So each day I will, “SEE AND FEEL AND BELIEVE (I’M) ALREADY IN POSSESSION OF THE MONEY.” –Napoleon Hill

My thought that is running in my mind of making $10,000 a month is so strongly that I will win or perish, because I will never again want to work another’s man job to make a living. I want to be in control of how much money I make for my family and myself.

I can feel the emotions of Mr. Barnes when he said, “There is but ONE thing in this world that I am determined to have, and that is…” For me that ONE thing is to have $10,000 a month, and I will “stake my ENTIRE FUTURE on my ability to get what I want.” Now you too will have to figure out what is your ONE thing that you DESIRE?

Finally, if you want to know the key to success, remember this, “Every person who wins in any undertaking must be willing to burn his ships and cut all sources of retreat. Only by so doing can one be sure of maintaining that state of mind known as a BURNING DESIRE TO WIN…” – Napoleon Hill.`
