Desire and Persistence

In the course of our life we may often come across the question, "why are things not going my way?" It feels like the tides of the world have turned against us. We must then analyze what it is we are trying to accomplish and how badly we want it.

I find it is much easier to recall an image then it is recall an inspirational lecture you heard a long time ago. Therefore, I gathered together all the artisitic talent I could afford and came up with this drawing.

In order to accomplish any noteworthy goal in our lives it requires we contain a certain amount of the internal qualities of Desire and Persistence. Equiped with this pair men and women are imbued with unstoppable courage enabling them to turn any thought into its phyiscal reality.

Observe the way Desire and Persistence complement one another. When lacking in Desire persist in your objective, and when lacking in persitence recall how badly you desire your purpose to be fulfilled. Remember this diagram and commit it to memory, it will help you when you find yourself lacking in either of these attributes.

I leave you with a quote by the great Napoleon Hill.

"The starting point of all achievement is DESIRE. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat. If you find yourself lacking in persistence, this weakness may be remedied by building a stronger fire under your desires."

Looking for the Answers

Hello ladies and gentlemen! I am back. I apologize for all loyal readers. I had tried to post 3 really cool video posts (with graphics and everything) yet they failed to post, for a reason I am uncertain. I have created two new websites and been things have been generally crazy at the business! Bad economy what? I leave you with my homecoming post.

Why does it seem that whenever we are struggling to find the answers to our problems and difficulties in life we seem to bring about either:

1. More problems and difficulties of greater significance.
2. A different type of problem of difficulty

How many times has worrying about a particular issue or problem actually increased the difficulty of the problem? More often we actually replace a specific problem or difficulty with an entirely different issue to be upset about. Albert Einstein once said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and getting the same results.”

We must then trace our results back to their source. The answers we seek or shall I say the cause of our most demoralizing failures is a result of looking for different effects among effects. However, many fail to see the actual cause of the situations they find themselves in. If you can begin to understand and change the CAUSE of the situations present in your life you can at once begin to take control change the effects.

Our current situations are mostly the result of our habitual mindset. The subconscious motives that dominate our lives tend to reoccur and repeat themselves. Many of us have been programmed to think in a specific way from a very young age, engaging in all kinds of limiting self-beliefs and negative states of mind. These patterns can become very destructive. Unfortunately, the programming of negative states of mind is not voluntary.

Our error comes from looking on the outside for these answers. Trace back the steps any material object or manifestation to its essential cause. You will find that all originate from one source. This ONE source is a spiritual source and the source of all power. It is not presently my purpose to describe this source, however, the earnest student of the mind will find that our means of interacting with the source comes from our ability and free will to think.

Therefore, when searching for our answers let us first examine our habitual modes of thinking. This is where our will power will play an important role. It is not our will power’s job to make our desire come about by playing with different effects, but to change our method of thinking. The answer you already know, you just have to convince yourself of this.
