The Burning Desire

The Starting Point of All Achievement – The Burning Desire

The first step towards becoming rich is you should have a burning desire. Most of the time people only have the wish to achieve goals, money, car but due to lack of faith and burning desire they can’t achieve it. 

Let me share one small story to understand better about strong desire. In 1519, Hernan Cortes went through the way of water in order to conquer the foreign land. And he has a strong desire to win this battle in order to conquer the land. 

But when they reached there, they saw that count of the enemies is more than the Hernan soldier. So, he told the soldiers to destroy their own ships. 

Because they could think about running from the battle if they feel that they are losing. 

But by burning the ship they have only two options, either you die while fighting or you must win whatever the condition or whatever the count of the enemies. 

And at last, they win this battle. This is how the strong desire works. 

The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desires bring weak results, just like a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat.
