Daily Inspiration #108
Napoleon Hill

Oliver Napoleon Hill (born October 26, 1883 – November 8, 1970) was an American self-help author. He is known best for his book Think and Grow Rich (1937) which is among the 10 best selling self-help books of all time.[1][2] Hill's works insisted that fervid expectations are essential to improving one's life. Most of his books were promoted as expounding principles to achieve "success".

Another great quote from Napoleon Hill:

"The starting point of all achievement is desire."

Ever notice how things we don't like seem to drag out?

Or, things we are only moderately interested in seem to move ahead but slowly?

Still, the things we are really excited about doing seem to unfold almost like magic?

That's because of desire.

If you really don't like something you are attracting it from thinking about it yet it lingers on because the desire is not there to keep it moving forward decently.

If you like something but it does not get you excited you will attract it and even get it to move forward yet it will move slowly because your not that excited about it.

If you really have a desire for something, it makes you excited even thinking about it so when you attract it, it moves like magic after that.

It's really about how intense the emotion you are directing toward it is.

The more intense the emotion, the faster and more intensely the attraction and movement thereof.

Desire is a heightened emotion, so by nature it will move your goal to you faster.

Basically what I'm saying here is that you won't get anywhere very fast unless you really want it.

You must have a burning desire for it's achievement.

So, assess your goals.

Do you have desire for them?

Do they get you excited?

If not either determine why and how to re-spark that flame, or decide which goals do spark desire in you and follow them.
