We’ve heard many stories about miraculous situations – a mute child begins to talk, people who are pronounced dead come alive once more, and those who seem to have hit rock bottom rise to become one of the greatest legends in history.
We get shocked by these stories, completely taken aback by them, applauding these men and women for their accomplishments… and 10 minutes later we go back to doing exactly what we were doing. The next day, it’s even worse. We don’t even remember the names of these people or what they did.
You can inspire your broke friend a million times with Donald Trump’s accomplishments; you can teach your son over and over again about how his cousin is now studying to become a doctor and is so successful and hardworking. You bet this will inspire them – but only for those few moments that you are telling them the story.
Have you noticed, that when we really like what we’re doing, we do it so much better? A child can be a master at video games, but fail in science – why does this happen? He’s learning the information in school, everything is given to him. Then why is he failing? He didn’t know how to play the video game when he first bought it; he had to learn how to do that too. Then why did he get so good at it?
The answer is simple. He became a master at playing video games because he had the DESIRE to reach that goal. You may say “well video games are fun, it’s not surprising that he put all that energy into learning how to do it.” To that I will say, “you’re absolutely right. He has FUN doing it. He has the DESIRE to do it. He has the PASSION for it. And that’s why it’s so easy. Find something you have a passion for, and watch what happens to your results.”
Napolean Hill, author of ‘Think and Grow Rich’, said something very powerful. He said “Desire backed by faith knows no words such as impossible.” I think that’s one of the best things anyone has ever written. When you have a burning desire to do something, you don’t know what Plan B is. You don’t know the word ‘Failure’. All you have is your vision, your intention and the fact that you believe, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you are going to reach your goal. So many human beings today shut down their burning desires and let their reasoning minds take over. “I don’t have time”, “It’s too risky”, “I don’t have the money to do something like that”. And then, these very people sit and wonder why they aren’t getting the results they want.
These beliefs become so engrained in their minds that they begin to believe that money is hard to earn and not everyone is destined for it.
Let’s back up a bit – what is money? Looking at it from a scientific perspective, it’s a piece of paper with a number written on it, that allows you to purchase things. But the VALUE given to these pieces of paper differ from person to person. Give a poor man a $5 bill, and he becomes the most grateful man in the world. Give a rich man a $5 bill, he may be grateful, but he knows how to make more than that in a few minutes.
Now when we understand that money only means what we want it to mean, we can begin to shift our thinking. James Allen said “If your real desire is to be good, then there is no need to wait for the money before you do it. You can do it now, this very moment, just where you are.”
Great men didn’t become great by listening to people in their society. Rich men didn’t become rich by sticking at a job they hated. They became who they are because they had an idea, an idea that created a burning DESIRE in their minds, in their hearts, in their soul. This desire is what drove them to begin their journey to abundance.
The universe has everything you need. According to Bob Proctor, a legend in the personal growth industry and author of ‘You Were Born Rich’, the resources you need to make your dream come alive are already available to you. The resources needed to create internet has always been here – we just needed to KNOW how to create it, and now we’ve got it. But this started with an IDEA. That idea translated into a DESIRE, to make that idea a physical reality. And once that step was achieved, even mother nature couldn’t stop it from becoming a fact.
Doctors have told so many people they will never walk again; but this is just an opinion! Doctors don’t know what you’re capable of, nobody knows what you’re capable of. If you can allow yourself to let go of all your doubts, and embrace your desire of walking on two feet once again, the universe will come to your aid and give you everything you need – and your desire will even outwit Mother Nature.
Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something. Listen only to your desires and follow the footsteps of those who have achieved such great goals. They had an idea and they acted on it. Pick up those dreams and feel that burning desire in you to do what you REALLY WANT TO DO. Because those dreams are the key to giving you the results you truly want.
