CHAPTER 2 - DESIRE
"A burning desire to be and to do is the starting point from which the dreamer must take off. Dreams are not born of indifference, laziness or lack of ambition." NAPOLEON HILL
Once we understand that desire is the starting point of all achievement, we may begin our journey. That one little word, desire, can take us all the way. It is way more powerful than
I ever knew. Desire is a state of mind we must maintain to reach our goal. We have to do other things, as well, like be a dreamer and be persistent and work hard and understand
definiteness of purpose and help other people, but without desire we will not succeed in anything. Sometimes I get confused about just what "success" is. I know it is so much
more than how much money you can accumulate, but can one be successful in everything? I don't think so. I don't want to be greedy and want to excel in everything I touch. I just
want to figure out what my purpose is on this Earth and how I can best help the most people in living out that purpose. I have to be good at something, right? I guess I haven't shut
off enough of the chatter yet for the answer to come. I am working on that and I know I will figure it out. I am so blessed to have the Mentoring For Free team to go to if I need some
clarity or just need someone to listen to me and encourage me. I would not be where I am today if not for their support.
