Desire is the starting point of all achievement. This stated Napoleon Hill in the second chapter of his book „Think and Grow Rich“
Without desire, it’s almost not possible to achieve great things. It’s the foundation and when you have a strong desire, you have to go for it. Whatever it takes to achieve it.
When you don’t follow your intense desire, you will regret it your whole life. There is a reason when you have it. And for a fulfilled life, you have to follow it.
How To Start To Follow Your Desire
First of all, you have to get really clear about what it really is. Build a clear mental picture. The more you can see it clearly in your mind, the better. Also write it down as your main goal.
Read your main goal every morning and every evening. In this way, you program it into your subconscious mind. And when something is in there, it runs nearby on autopilot.
Next, create a plan how you can achieve it. The more detailed it, is the better. It does not mean you have to stick with it. Because things change during the time you work on. So you have to update the plan on a regular basis, so that it is up to date. Do not hesitate to make major changes in the plan. It happens often, that the way to achieve what you desire is completely different than you thought.
In the video below I share with you the six steps from Napoleon Hill, how to transform the desire for money into reality. You can do the same exercise for every desire you have.
Rejection On The Way To Fulfill Your Desire
On your journey to your main goal, you will face many rejections. Mostly from family and friends. Because, when you want to achieve great things, you have to become a different person. You have to grow as a person and people around you are often afraid of change.
Don’t take these rejections personally. It’s normal when change happens. And your friends and family have only the best interest for you. But you know better. what is good for you. You have your own guiding system within you and when you listen to your inner voice, you know what’s right for you.
Look Out For Support For Your Desire
There are several ways how you can get support. One thing is a mastermind group. Maybe you are already in a group with people who have the same or similar goal. Then you can gather a group together, where you meet each other on a regular basis. Then you can share your experience. what is working and where you are struggling. These interactions in groups will help to find new solutions. The other thing is, that you can keep each other accountable. This is also a huge benefit of a mastermind group.
The other way you can get support, it to work with a mentor who has already achieved what you want. He or she, knows shortcuts to achieve your goals you desire, at the fastest possible time. For me, working with a mentor works very well.
Something that also helps me on the journey to achieve my Desire, is a course from Jack Canfield. It’s called Effortless Success. You can read more about it here.
