Developing Desire to Succeed by Tom Hopkins
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.
