The dictionary describes “desire” as “to wish or long for; crave; want” and “an expressed wish; request”
Napoleon Hill says that desire is the starting point of ALL ACHIEVMENT.
I myself have never felt desire so strong than I did in the year 2008. My desire consumed me day and night. I slept, ate and breathed desire. In my mind, I already had the object of my desire. Everything I done throughout the day revolved around the idea that my desire had already taken form. Never a single doubt crept into my mind. And on October 21, 2008, my desire came into existence.
I have never felt such a strong desire for anything until then, and I have not felt it since that time. But I DO know what the POWER OF DESIRE can do. I have seen with my own eyes, felt with my own being, exactly what the POWERS OF THE UNIVERSE can do when your desire is strong enough.
How can a person reach that point? Napoleon Hill says that any idea, plan, or purpose may be placed in the mind through repetition of thought. He also goes on to tell us that we are what we are, because of the vibrations of thought which we pick up and register, through the stimuli of our daily environment.
He uses the example of Edwin C. Barnes. Mr. Barnes had a burning desire, one consuming obsession of his life, to become a business associate of Thomas Edison. Barnes’ desire was not a hope! It was not a wish! It was a keen, pulsating, desire, which transcended everything else. It was a DEFINATE!
Edwin C. Barnes stood by his desire until it became the dominating obsession of his life- and – finally a fact. He left himself no possible way of retreat. He had to win or perish!
In “Think & Grow Rich”, Napoleon Hill gives 6 practical steps, in which desire for riches can be transmuted into it’s financial equivalent. .
