Intense Desire: Rocket Fuel When You Set Goals!
Have you set goals, personal or business, and failed to achieve them? Here is a crucial question: WHY?
The answer is simple:
Because you did not have a strong enough desire.
Some may argue with that: "But I did set goals with a strong desire and still I didn't get there!"
Sorry, but the desire was still not strong enough.
This article is about INTENSE desire. In other words a PASSION.
Rocket fuel is powerful. The energy it releases boggles the mind.
Intense desire can do the same for humans when they set goals.
Are you working on a goal right now?
Is it faltering or not progressing as fast as you would like?
Analyze the intensity of your desire.
How do you identify intense desire, passion?
It's what keeps people working all hours, up early, late to bed.
It's what fueled Stephen Spielberg from the age of 13 to be a movie director.
It's what powered Woopi Goldberg from childhood out of impossible circumstances to be a successful actress.
The desire dominates conversation, thinking, actions.
How do you intensify desire before you set goals?
The remaining part of this article will show you.
Question: Where do desires start? How do they form?
Unlike animals with their internal programming called instinct, the human mind has the colossal potential for reasoning, coming to conclusions, thinking things through.
So desires start in the mind.
Research has shown that impulses are transmitted through electro chemical processes across the synapses, tiny spaces less than one millionth of an inch across, which separate the brain cells or neurons.
Patterns and tracks are formed in our thinking processes. Think the same thought regularly and it becomes a habit forming a deep track like a well-used path across a field.
On the other hand, an occasional thought may pass through the mind and be forgotten just like a path seldom used which becomes overgrown.
Now apply this information to the kind of desires you need to cultivate before you set goals.
A desire may come into the mind and soon be forgotten in the everyday hum drum of life.
But keep thinking about it, keep your mind focused on it and what happens?
The desire becomes strong, very strong.
Action follows right after.
So back to our original question - how to intensify desire before you set goals?
Take as an illustration a work of art. After many years the picture suffers from pollution and discoloration. It may only be a shadow of its original glory.
But after it has gone through a meticulous restoration process what happens?
The picture breathes life and vibrancy again. Why?
Because now you see the detail. There are moods, objects, expressions in that picture you never saw or felt before.
Detail makes the difference.
How then can we intensify desire?
By listing details, particularly benefits.
Once the list gets past 20 or 30 benefits your goal becomes unstoppable!
Why not do this exercise today with one of your goals?
Have you set goals for your business to reach certain monetary targets this month, this quarter?
Making money for the sake of it after a while becomes mundane. There has to be something more.
Make a list of all the benefits from using that money.
What difference will it make to your family, your lifestyle, your enjoyment of life, your business growth?
What if you set goals to develop skills or awaken a dormant talent or ability?
Write down a huge list of the benefits this will bring you and your loved ones, or your business.
The more you write, the more details your mind conjures up, the greater the intensity of desire becomes.
This is the first step of goal achievement and the foundation.
With intense desire fueling your goals you have every chance of rocketing to success!
