Chapter 2 Desire


The First Step toward Riches


“The greatest achievement was, at first, and for a time, but a dream.”

“The oak sleeps in the acorn. The bird waits in the egg, and in the highest vision of the soul, a waking angel stirs. DREAMS ARE THE SEEDLINGS OF REALITY.”

“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.”

“A BURNING DESIRE TO BE, AND TO DO is the starting point from which the dreamer must take off. “

The burning desire is the fire within you propelling your dream into action. I equate it to the fire providing the initial thrust to send a rocket skyward and once it’s fully taken off, there’s less to do when engaging to continue the rocket on its trajectory. Nothing can stop it at this stage! It's thrilling, exciting....


“Mother nature bends to the power of desire” ….. “Through some strange and powerful principle of “mental chemistry” which she has never divulged, Nature wraps up in the impulse of STRONG DESIRE “that something” which recognizes no such word as impossible,  and accepts no such reality as failure.”

“Strange and imponderable is the power of the human mind! We do not understand the method by which it uses every circumstance, every individual, every physical thing within its reach, as a means of transmuting DESIRE into its physical counterpart.”
