CHAPTER 2 - DESIRE - THE STARTING POINT OF ALL ACHIEVEMENT
The First Step toward Riches

Hill says that the starting point of all achievement is DESIRE. He goes on "A

burning desire To Be and To Do is the starting point from which the dreamer

must take off".

I had big dreams of owning and operating a network marketing business. I had a

burning desire, not a mere wish, to start one and do everything possible to

succeed at the outset. I did everything in an effort to accomplish those

dreams.

Most people in the industry however wanted money, and big money at that,

without offering meaningful training or support. They wanted the money very

quickly saying they were there to help me start making money as soon as

possible. They made everything seem easy and valuable. "Think of everyone you

know or have met in your life, make a list and contact each one of them with

this great opportunity or product. You will be amazed at the response. It is

that simple"! they said.

It was not simple to me and my pocket book. I started to think of abandoning

my dream but the burning fire of my desire would not die. If anything, it grew

stronger. There had to be a way out of this predicament, I thought to myself.

As Hill points out "Dreams are not born of indifference, laziness or lack of

ambition".

So I set out on a journey to search for an alternative. My search led me to

Success in 10 Steps and the Mentoring For Free program. In order to realize my

dreams my burning desire now is to get so many eBook downloads per week. I

must learn the tricks of the game by attending and participating in the weekly

training calls and seeking advice from those who are already doing it

successfully.

All those who succeed in life get off to a bad start and pass through many

struggles before they find success. Hill tells us we must support our plans

with persistence that does not recognize failure. He continues "Practical

dreamers do not quit!" and we, in this mastermind group, will not quit until

we realize our dreams. We intend to be here weeks, months and years to come.
