How to develop a burning desire to achieve success?
We all know that strong desire is needed to achieve any goal and success. The question many people ask is how to have strong desire and will power? What is the desire that is needed to achieve any goal you want? How does it feel like?
Before you develop burning desire, you have first to understand what a burning desire is. This can be explained best in the following story:
Once upon a time, a young man wanted to know how to have a burning desire to achieve his goals, so he went to China to ask a wise Chinese man how to have strong and burning desire. The wise Chinese man got a large bowl of water and then put the young man’s head in the bowl of water for a few minutes. The young man started slowly to get his head out of the water, but didn’t succeed. After a few minutes, the young man shoved the wise Chinese man off and got his head out of the bowl of water. The young man asked, “What were you trying to do?” The wise Chinese man replied, “What did you learn from this experience?” The young man said, “Nothing.” Then, the wise Chinese man replied, “Yes, you learned something. At first, when you tried to get your head out of the bowl of water, you weren’t successful because your desire was not strong enough, but after words when your desire was strong, you were able to get your head out of the bowl of water and this is exactly the type of desire needed to achieve one’s goal.”
Now, let me ask you something. Do you have strong and burning desire to achieve your goals? Do you have a burning desire to get up in the morning to do everything it takes to make your goal a reality? If you answer yes to these questions, then let us look at the one main step that will help you create a burning desire, so you can achieve every goal you want.
In my book, “the ultimate guide to achieve your goals,” I mentioned that this is the most important question that you have to answer. Many people say they want something and after a while they lose interest. Why? It is because they don’t know the real reason why they want this specific goal. Why do you want your goal? Does it give you freedom? Stability? Security? Without strong, burning desire and will power, you will give up quickly, you will not persist and hence you won‘t achieve what you had in mind. Knowing exactly why you want something, helps keep the burning desire awake inside of you at all times and it will lead you to take action.
Studies show that the best time to program your subconscious mind with an idea is before sleeping. Make sure before you sleep to think of your goal and why you want it. It is crucial to feel the burning desire as feelings are energy and they will help you stay focused on your goal.
