Here are three methods of developing a burning desire to succeed. They will work — if you want them to.
1. The greatest obstacle to developing desire is a conviction that we'll never be able to fulfill it. So many people discourage desire to avoid the frustration they may encounter. If you don't have a burning desire to better your life, you're cheating yourself and your loved ones with phony excuses. You're choosing a level of life that's poor compared to what you could have with the extra exertion you're capable of. It's all on your shoulders and there's no way you can shift a bit of the responsibility to anyone else.
2. Focus on the specific things you want. Make agreements with yourself. When I do this, I get that. Don't try to make yourself work for nothing.
3. Take it in steps. If you've never made more than minimum wage, don't aim for half a million dollars the first year. The essential element is faith in yourself.I know former migrant farm workers who came out of the fields and make themselves wealthy. If your sunshine wants far outstrip your cold morning desire, have a talk with yourself, then have a lot more talks. Convince yourself you can succeed and will succeed.
