Chapter 2-Desire


In this chapter Napoleon Hill give us six steps to realize our dreams and to acquire the money needed to realize those dreams.  They are as follows:

           1. Have a definite amount of money in mind to accomplish your dream or desire.

           2. Determine what you will give in return for the money.

           3.  Establish a definite date when you will have this money.

          4. Create a definite plan to carry out the desire.

          5. Put the above in writing   

         6. Read your written statement aloud twice a day once in the morning and once in the evening.

In order to put these six steps into reality we need imagination.  These statements can’t be left to chance, good fortune or luck.  We must remember that practical dreamers have always been and always will be the pattern makers of civilization.

When we have a demand for new and better things in life we must possess a definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what we want and a burning desire to possess it.  

Besides what is mentioned above we must have Faith that our desire will be become reality and we have to communicate that desire to the world.  Our associates must also have the Faith that we know what we want and when they become a part of  our team we will accomplish this desire. 


To sum all this up, a thought must be backed by desire and all that goes with it to become reality.
