Chapter Two Desire


"Wishing will not bring riches. 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."

"One must realize that all who have accumulated great fortunes, first did a certain amount of dreaming, hoping, wishing, DESIRING, and PLANNING before they acquired money."

Hill goes on to list the 6 steps that must be taken to obtain riches that begin by dreaming, hoping, wishing, Desiring and Planning before reaching the physical equivalent.

I know that we in Mentoring For Free are learning this powerful Understanding, that - A BURNING DESIRE MIXED WITH FAITH WILL TRANSMUTE INTO IT'S PHYSICAL EQUIVALENT.

I have begun this transformation in my life recently, knowing that I will Succeed, no matter what and that there is no QUIT in ME!

Now I must complete the rest of the steps so that I, too, like members of this group, reach the moment of truth, when my dreams, Burning Desire to have what I want and Faith that I will have it are transmuted into Reality.

I look forward knowing that I am on the right path, following Leaders in this group that are experiencing these principles, living their Dreams as truth and reality, and I too, will be able to share my discoveries and Lead others to the same means to an end, which is really the beginning of Life as I now have the map to become successful.

Hill says "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."

I have lived with the experience of failure most of my adult life due to the choices I made, and the environment I was born into. NO MORE!

I will make a stand for my belief that my Burning Desire and my Faith will give me the strength to ignore "They" who say to me 'that I am JUST DREAMING, seeing that my failures are stepping stones to my Reality of Success, No Matter What.

May God bless all of the members of Mentoring For Free, and Thank you, Thank you, thank you all for being an integral part of my transformation into Greatness!
