Why You Need a Burning Desire to Succeed

As Napoleon Hill said so succinctly, “a burning desire is the starting point of all riches.” Your definite purpose must be fused with a burning desire in order for the universe to acquiesce to your demands.

Without a burning desire, without passion for the objective you’re trying to reach, only a half-hearted effort will be put forward for its attainment. And a half-hearted effort will accomplish very little.

Only an all-out focused effort will bring you the objectives you seek and the only way to create this all-out effort is by enveloping your definite purpose with a burning passion. Mix those ingredients with concentrated thought and confident action; the whole universe will bow to your wishes.

How do you acquire a burning desire? With tools already in your arsenal – imagination, affirmation and knowledge of what drives you.

Decide what you really want, visualize its attainment over and over and over again with feeling and finally, affirm constantly that you really want this and you will achieve it. Before long, you will create a burning desire so white hot, that nothing will be able to stop you.

The desire should be so strong that it’s the first thing you think about in the morning and the last thing you think about before going to sleep. It should dominate your thoughts. You may have other things to do during your day, but after those tasks are done, your burning desire should be front and center in your conscious mind.

A burning desire, backed by faith, allows you to go through the difficult times knowing that in the end, you will emerge victorious. A burning desire, backed by faith, allows you to move forward, no matter what the cost, to reach your objective. A burning desire, backed by faith, is the strongest force in the universe.

An important side note: Your burning desire should be something of a positive nature. If your desire is to hurt someone or gain something through illegal means or cause any injury at all, you will pay a heavy price. Remember cause and effect. What you sow you reap, so only desire things that can benefit yourself and mankind in a positive way.

If you follow the above rule, visualize and affirm your intention with feeling, you will create a burning desire that will sweep all obstacles and problems out of your way. A burning desire is the starting point of all achievement. You can develop one even if you don’t have it right now. Trust me, its well worth the effort.
