Desire ~ The Starting Point of all Achievement

Desire ~ The Starting Point of all Achievement is chapter 3 in “Think and Grow Rich”.  

I have taken an extract from the book to share with you as it is very relevent to how we as humans can and do function.  Either we are “in control of our lives” or “we are led blindly by outside influences”, that is my understanding.Success Secrets of Big Money Producers

Every human being reaches the age of understanding of the purpose of money, wishes for it.  Wishing will not bring riches.  But desiring riches with a state of mind that becomes an obsession, then planning definitive ways and means to acquire riches, and backing those plans with persistence which does not recognise failure, will bring riches

The method by which desire for riches can be transmuted into his financial equipment consists of six definitive practical steps, as listed below:

  1. Fix in your mind the exact amount of money that you desire it is not sufficient merely to say “I want plenty of money”. Be definitive as to the amount (there is the psychological reason for definitive list which will be described in another blog post)
  2. Determine exactly what you intend to give in return for the money you desire. There is no such reality as something for nothing
  3. Establish a definite date when you intend to possess the money you desire
  4. Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once with you already or not, to put the plan into action
  5. Write out a clear, concise statement of the amount of money you tend to acquire, name the time limit for that its accusation, state what you intend to give in return for the money, and describe clearly the plan to which you intend to make it
  6. Read your written statement aloud, twice daily, ones just before retiring at night and once after rising in the morning as you read see and feel and believe in yourself already in possession of the money

Only those you become “money conscious” ever accumulate great rich

“Money conscious” means that the mind has become so thoroughly situated with the desire of money that one can see oneself already in possession of it.

To actually put this into practice one needs to have a very deep burning Desire andDesire ~ The Starting Point of all Achievement vision to succeed, but it is possible as many people today are demonstrating through their achievements and sucess. 

Success requires no apologies, failure permits no Alibis”

If the things you wish to do is right and you believe in it, go for it!! Pput your dream across and never mind what anyone says if you meet the temporary defeat, for they perhaps don’t realise that every freight failure brings with it the seed of equivalent success

I have mine written out and in full view above my desk.  I read it out loud and look at it constantly through the day.

  1. This is amazing Diane! I remember reading Think and Grow Rich and being blown away. Even more, I’m so blow away by what I’ve been able to create ever since all because of my burning desire to create it. I love the saying “If you can see it in your mind and feel it in your heart, you can hold it in your hands.”

    1. Hey Alex, Think and Grow Rich is such a powerfull book, so much to take away from reading it

  2. Absolutely, specific desire is the beginning of it all, to be backed up with plan and action. Napoleon Hill was quite a man and gave us an excellent road map to follow. Thanks Diane.
