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."
