Chapter 2 Desire

The Starting Point of all Achievement

Tolerance, and an open mind are practical necessities of the dreamer of today. Those who are afraid of new ideas are doomed before they start. 
Never has there been a time more favorable to pioneers than the present. True, there is no wild and woolly west to be conquered, as in the days of the 
Covered Wagon; but there is a vast business, financial, and industrial world to be remoulded and redirected along new and better lines. - Hill

I've heard many people say that they Desire a change in their life, but most are closed minded and won't study any type of personal development.
Most of them think that riches will just fall out of the sky into their bank accounts.  They look at successful people as lucky...what they don't 
know is all the hard work that it took to become successful.  They don't understand that desire is nothing without action.  Most of all they have no 
idea what a burning desire is...


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, essential to success. -Hill

Thank you Linda and Michael Dlouhy for teaching me how to be successful and being the leaders that you are.  Thank you to all my friends here at MFF
I learn so much from the brilliance that's shared each week.
