It all begins with a burning desire!
What is a burning desire?
Are you driven by an idea to achieve something special? Is there a fire in your belly to make you want to leave a legacy for your children and their children’s children? Do you have an idea or for that matter many ideas to change the quality of your life for the better?
A burning desire is an obsession. It is knowing that you will achieve your desire no matter what.
You can go throughout life as a passenger or you can choose to take the reigns and control your life.
It all starts with a decision to pursue a burning desire.
The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential… these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.
That burning desire is your seed to flourish in life’s garden. Without it you life will lay dormant in the soil.
How do you build up a burning desire? It is all about your ability to think. Once you can think and know how to think you will discover what you really want.
Ok everybody can think! BUt do you know what you are thinking and how you are thinking?
Learning about your burning desire
This is the key component of identifying your desire and passion. It is about having clarity and focus to see what you were meant to do! Life can toss you around like a boat on rough seas but there is course you must set and steer towards. Most people go throughout life not even knowing about the course they must set for themselves. Some find out about it but don’t know how to set the course.
The few that do and set the course to achieve their life’s purpose reap the magnificence of what life is truly about. To live in a state of abundance doing what you like best in a spirit of harmony and excellence.
The major factor to becoming one of the enlightened few is to slow down the chatter in your mind long enough for you to see the course you have to set.
This is an excellent starting point. The inner critic as Larry Lewis likes to refer to needs to remain silent long enough for you to identify your life’s direction. When you are saying a positive self talk at least 400 times a day you begin to slow down that inner critic and you begin to see your journey clearly.
Beginning the journey
If you are fortunate enough to see this journey then you are ready to start fuelling your desire into a white hot burning desire. Visualise your goal clearly by taking some time to slow down and concentrating until you can imagine your goal clearly. The best place to do this is in your very quiet bedroom. Find a nice comfortable place close your eyes and relax for a few minutes. Refer to Larry Lewis’ post on visualisation to obtain a very clear picture on how to use visualisation to assist you obtain your goals.
Six steps to making your burning desire an obsession
First. Fix in your mind the exact image of your desireSecond. Determine exactly what you intend to give in return to obtain your desire. (There is no such reality as “something for nothing.)Third. Establish a definite date when you intend to possess your desire.Fourth. Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire, and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.Fifth. Write out a clear, concise statement of the desire you intend to acquire, name the time limit for its acquisition, state what you intend to give in return to obtain your desire, and describe clearly the plan through which you intend to make it a reality.Sixth. Read your written statement aloud, twice daily, once just before retiring at night, and once after arising in the morning. AS YOU READ—SEE AND FEEL AND BELIEVE YOURSELF ALREADY AS HAVING ACHIEVED YOU DESIRE!
These steps are very important. They will instil in your subconscious mind the belief that the desire has already been achieved. Once this takes place your subconscious mind gets to work at ensuring that your desire does in fact manifest itself.
Any thought that is passed on to the subconscious often enough and convincingly enough is finally accepted.
YOU GOTTA FAITH IT TILL YOU MAKE IT.
Do not allow self doubt or negativity to infiltrate your thought patterns. Instead have faith and belief that your desire is already within your grasp.
How do you build up you faith to a level where this is possible?
FAITH IS A STATE OF MIND WHICH MAY BE INDUCED BY AUTO-SUGGESTION
This statement by Napoleon Hill indicates that you need to surround yourself in a positive environment mixed in with positive emotions so your auto-suggestion is positive. When you are able to do this then your faith will grow and assist you to realise your desire.
To sum it all up if you start with a burning desire to achieve your goal and truly believe that you can achieve it through faith then your desire will be signed sealed and delivered. Provided of course you make a plan and persist with consistent action to achieve your desire.
Once you can identify your burning desire your life will begin to be directed towards achieving it.
