CHAPTER 2 - DESIRE - THE STARTING POINT OF ALL ACHIEVEMENT
The First Step toward Riches

Where does desire arise from? How does it take us over? Can we desire deeply without being attached?

Our desires can be sparked by all kinds of outside influences. Most of the time, we are unaware of what influences our desires. Dreams and hunches or inspirations do influence many of our desires.

Hill writes "If the thing you wish to do is right, and you believe in it, go ahead and do it! Put your dream across, and never mind what "they" say if you meet with temporary defeat, for "they," perhaps, do not know that every failure brings with it the seed of an equivalent success."

My passion is for helping people see success of their own by teaching, coaching and mentoring them to do exactly what I do. Persist and Succeed! "Practical dreamers do not quit!". It is my obsession to become the best leader that I can be in emulation of Edwin C. Barnes.

I realize that the key to success in network marketing is not only willingness to work hard but also to be coachable. What does that mean? Well, most people say "I am coachable". Often times this is what they mean. "As long as you are telling me what I like to hear and it doesn't make me feel uncomfortable, I am coachable." This, of course, does not cut it.

What I have found from my short experience in this industry is this: if it rubs me the wrong way, most of the time it was meant for me. I know that if I keep doing the same things I am going to keep getting the same results. The definition of insanity is doing what we have always done and expecting things to change.

If we remain faithful to the path of desire, steadfastly refusing all that fails to satisfy, and holding fast to our deepest longing, we can trust it to lead us to life in all its fullness. Perseverance is KEY!
