The Power of Desire
The Power of Desire
It is not accidental that Napoleon Hill begins with desire. Success always begins with desire. Most people want to be successful. Wanting success is a waste of time. Worse, it just produces frustration. Only a burning, all-consuming, fervent and passionate desire will produce the exceptional results that make up true success.

Wanting is best understood by its second meaning in the dictionary: lack. To want for something is to lack something and so long as you merely want success, you will lack success. Wanting is mere wishful thinking. Desire, on the other hand, is an extremely potent force. It is a supreme motivator. It is a metaphysical principle of creation.

Desire is an energetic emanation of the human spirit that enacts the law of attraction. Desire is the metaphysical equivalent of gravity. Desire draws to you the thing desired, or the elements that will constitute the thing desired. Desire is the fuel that ignites the fire that transmutes thoughts into things.
The sad truth about most people who claim to want success is that they actually do not desire success. What they desire is comfort and security. The path to real success often demands that you give up comfort and security in order to gain rewards greater than mere creature comforts and minor financial security. For years, I wanted to be a millionaire. I wanted and wanted to no avail. It was not until, one day, in my frustration and anger, I graduated from wanting to truly desiring success, and, as a result, I was almost magically catapulted into millionaire status.

It was the burning passion of fervent desire that pushed me out of my comfort zone of mediocrity and security and empowered me to achieve real success. It was my desire that enabled me to get past the fear of failure and get past the frustrations of obstacles to achieve the success I had wanted for so many years. You must have or develop a burning passion for success. Without it, you are highly unlikely to achieve it.

Get passionate or stay home. This is critical… your desire must be specific. It must be attached to a clear and specific ideal, a clear and consistent thought picture of what success means to you.

Desire is one strong force and a potent secret of success. Have a burning Desire for success and go for it.
