Desire by Bruno Buergi
Reading Time: 3 minutes

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 for 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 to 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 guidance 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 goals. 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 the goals you desire, at the fastest possible time. For me, working with a mentor works very well.

      Hey Bruno, Loved your post! This is so true, you must start with desire and have a clear vision of what you want……so important for success online as well as offline. Thank you for sharing your value to the world!!!

      • Bruno Buergi

        Thanks Joan. Without a real desire it’s easy to give up when it gets hard.

    • Andrea Wisden

      Great post Bruno. I agree, and the more clear you are about what you desire — not to be confused with how that will happen — but clarity of thought and an openness to how it will come, it's amazing what can happen. And surrounding yourself with supportive positive people, even active online groups if there aren't similarly minded people nearby. That definitely helps.

      Thanks for the reality check Bruno. I literally just wrote down my new main goal and posted it on my desk right after I started reading this post.

      My desire is strong, but I don’t always follow through with my plans.
      So this just helped me get refocused on what it is I really want right
      now and just how I am going about to get it.

      Thanks my friend,

        Well done Terry. To take action and be focused on what you want makes the difference.
