I hear many folks say they can’t figure out how to 
develop a white-hot Burning Desire. They have no clue 
how to grow Passion and Enthusiasm for what they want.

I believe they struggle because they truly have no idea 
WHAT they Want.

Think about how You got Your current job - or other 
jobs You’ve had in the past.

Did someone tell You where they were hiring? Did You go 
to work where a friend was working?

How many people are working at a job of their CHOICE? A 
job they sought out because it was something they 
really wanted to do, or had a passion for?

Most of us don’t know ourselves well enough. We are so 
subject to the Suggestion of Others, and we have never 
taken the time to stop the external noise long enough 
to hear our own voices.

We buy into what people within our environment tell us 
should be important to us.

In Chapter 6 of Success in Ten Steps. Michael Dlouhy 
shares Charles Schultz’ lesson...

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America 
4. Name any ten people who have won a Nobel or Pulitzer 
5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for 
Best Actor.
6. Name all the last decade’s World Series champions.



1. List a few teachers who aided Your journey through 
2. Name three friends who have helped You through a 
difficult time.
3. Name five people who have taught You something 
4. Think of a few people who have made You feel 
appreciated and special.
5. Think of five people You enjoy spending time with.
6. Name a half dozen heroes whose stories have inspired 

Perhaps now You can begin to discover WHAT is important 
to You in life. Once You know, developing a DESIRE is 

You Friend and Servant,
