Most people have a desire to become a success in life. A desire starts with a thought of wanting or wishing for something. This wanting and wishing has to be fired with hope, then faith, courage, and tolerance. When this happens desire becomes a burning desire. It must burn so brightly that turning back is out of the question.
When I graduated from High School this is the way I felt. I wanted to leave where I grew up because I felt my life was restricted by the attitudes of people around me. I loved music, I loved dancing, and having a good time. In the high school where I studied dances were not allowed because a strict Christian concept among the school board members. I knew there were places I could go to learn more about music and to find people that enjoyed life the same way I did. My mother assured me that she didn’t have the funds to help finance college so she thought it would be a good thing for me to join the military. At that time, after serving a hitch in the military I would be able go to college with funds from the GI Bill. I was assigned to the 4th Army WAC Band. This is what I did and have never been sorry for it.
There was still a burning desire for a more fulfilling life but this desire has still not been satisfied. I have to learn not only that there needs to be that fire of hope, faith, courage and tolerance. I also needed to learn about blending this desire with persistence, and determination. I needed to define a definite purpose for my desire. Then I must put this all into action along with the rest of the principles emphasized in this book called “Think and Grow Rich.”
These principles must constantly be a part of our state of mind. We need to learn and relearn these principles. This desire must always be a burning desire even though as we go through life we get off the track. We must always realize nothing is impossible.
