Do You Have A Burning Desire To Succeed?
Today I want to talk to you about the importance of desire in achieving your goals.
All of the great achievers throughout history have one thing in common. They have all been dreamers. If anyone is to achieve their goals in life then the first thing they need to do is establish what their desires are. That’s what makes people who are highly successful different from the rest – they know exactly what they want in life. It may be a desire to excel in business, it could be a desire to learn a new skill, or it could involve a desire to change aspects of your personal life.
All achievements no matter how significant they are to others begin with a burning desire to get the result intended. In the human mind there is a power that is hard to explain. It is the ability to focus positive thoughts on achieving the thing that is wanted most.
Success is sometimes a thing that at first seems impossible. When a burning desire in a person is so strong the word impossible loses significance. However, whatever desire a person has, it will only be fulfilled if some of the following actions are taken. Firstly a person must realize what it is they need to make them happy and content with their lives and give themselves step by step aims. Then they need to consider how much work they need to put in to begin achieving those aims.
Next they should set a deadline for reaching their final goal and then create a plan with a timeline highlighting how and when they will go about their tasks. This Plan must be updated and read out regularly to keep a person on track to satisfying their desire or as we more often call it their Goal.
In the home business industry this is commonly knowas finding “YOUR WHY” It is very important and makes all the difference when you are working towards your goals, because if you have a clear WHY to inspire you it will keep you going when the going gets tough and help you overcome hurdles that you will come up against.
My Why for example is MY FAMILY because I want to give them the happiest and most enjoyable life possible with lots of fun and holidays and I want to be there to enjoy it with them. So my advice would be to find a Desire/Goal that really inspires you and makes you go WOW! Then use that to keep you motivated on succeeding no matter what.
All who achieve great things adopt a similar philosophy when setting themselves goals. The best writers, artists, sportsmen, inventors, musicians and scientists, along with many other pioneers of modern professions, all follow the process of putting their thoughts into action successfully when backed by a burning desire.
Everyone, no matter what their chosen path in life may be, will start in the same situation with nothing but their thoughts and desires to spur them on.
However, many people lack self confidence and are unwilling to set their aims higher through fear of failing. This sometimes develops due to people close to them discouraging them because they feel they are unrealistic with their goals and life choices. It may be that friends and family do not approve and so use ridicule to prevent their loved one from making what they feel is a mistake.
We must remember not to let these people steal our dreams even if they mean well and have your best interests at heart. If you have a desire, a dream or goal, just go for it! You have to believe in yourself if you want to succeed that is what counts. Having others believe in you and give you their blessing is great and scan be supportive but not necessary as it is What You Believe that counts.
If your family and friends don't agree or support your goals then a good idea is to find a group of like minded individuals that are working on achieving similar goals to you. For example if you are trying to build a business in a Network Marketing or in Online Marketing and your family and friends are not supportive or positive about what you are doing. You may feel alone and get discouraged in what you are trying to do and may even feel like giving up at times.
To get past this a great thing to do is to find and join groups of people that are involved in the same types of business or activities as you are and you will find that by connecting and sharing with these like minded people that you gain knowledge, inspiration, support and motivation to keep you heading in the right direction, towards your goals.
I have myself found that even though my family and friends have been very supportive about my Network Marketing business, they didn't really understand so I have found great advantages in becoming part of communities of like minded people. This has given me a great boost in my confidence and has inspired me to try new things that will help to grow my business and take it to the next level.
You can find many groups of people to connect with on Facebook and I am part of a some fantastic groups and other my other favorite place for connecting with others in the home business Industry is a website called

Remember that everyone has to start somewhere and not everything will always go to plan. What is fundamental to success is that a person is not discouraged by initial failure. Most people who have claimed to have ‘made it’ in life will also be the first to admit that they had failures along the way. With every failure comes the chance to learn something new. Start to see your problems as opportunities for growth and you will overcome all obstacles in your path.
Never give up on your desires and dreams just keep trying and one step at a time and you will get there. The only way you will fail is if you quit. Keep your mind focused on where you want to go and find like minded people to share the journey with, it makes it much more fun!
Have a successful and inspiring day
