Napoleon Hill tells us that desire is the second step.  When building a building there are steps that must be taken for a beautiful, stable building erected that will stand and withstand storms and winds, heat and cold.  When we are building our future, we must follow the steps.  We started with faith and scripture tells us that “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.” While faith is the spiritual composition of things we hope will be transmuted into what we desire, desire is the fuel to the fire that powers our faith that it make take flight.  If desire dies the fire goes out and the engine of faith will stall. 

We must keep the fire of desire burning like the fire in the furnace of a train engine.  Challenges that come are like moisture that attempts to douse the fire, so if our desire is white hot, the moisture will turn into harmless steam and the fire will keep the train on track to the destination.  Visualization helps increase faith and desire. Visualization helps us see through the eyes of faith which allow us to see what we really want.  Visualization increases desire as it allows us to see ourselves taking action to get what we want
