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

“Money consciousness” means that the mind has
become so thoroughly saturated with the desire
for money, that one can see one’s self already
in possession of it.”

Just how strong must desire be for it to influence
our life. How big of a desire must we have to
change our direction and become unstoppable.

Barnes succeeded because he chose a definite goal,
placed all his energy, all his will power, all his
effort, everything back of that goal. This was his
First Step toward Riches.

Like Barnes, I now have a definite goal and have
made this determination by fixing my subconscious
mind in the amount of riches I want. There is no
set amount whether an extra $1000 per month to 1
or 10 million on deposit it is my amount.

As Barnes created a plan by which to attain that
purpose, I have created my plan (in writing),
determining what I will give in exchange for those
rich. It has called for dedicating the time away
from other activate or people. Fixing eyes on a
target date for completion.

Listen to this carefully, “But he (Barnes) burned
all bridges behind him. He stood by his desire,
until it became the dominating obsession of his
life—and—finally, a fact.”

As Barnes climbed into that boxcar, it all or nothing.
As I choose 48 years to commit my life to Connie,
so I now commit to the path I have chosen. I have
no bridges behind me, my goal is ahead. It is the
shining light of abundant.

Hills wrote, “But desiring riches with a state of
mind that becomes an obsession, then planning
definite ways and means to acquire riches, and
backing those plans with persistence which does not
recognize failure, will bring riches.

If the thing you desire 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.”

I have decided to live by these three definite facts:
(1) Mix faith with burning desire. (2) Communicate to
my subconscious mind by use of self-talk. (3) With
unrelenting persistence believe I have received my
desires.

Thanks to Linda and Michael Delouhy for the desire you
have lived by to give back to other from the abundance
received. To all the mentors, Bob Shoaf, the Bassett’s
and Ken Klemm, for the support you give in the trainings.
To those who joins the calls each day and share their
wisdom and perspective. A special thank you, thank you
to everyone who downloads the e-book “Success in 10 Steps”
‚Äčand adds their brilliance to the journey.
