If Your Desire is Big Enough You Can Achieve Amazing Results
All great success ultimately begins with an idea, but what makes ideas become reality is the fuel of human desire. An idea by itself can give you a temporary feeling of inspiration, but burning desire is what gets you through all the perspiration necessary to overcome the inevitable obstacles along the way.
When asked during an interview how he managed to reach the top as a professional bodybuilder and Hollywood actor, Arnold Schwarzenegger replied with a single word, “Drive!”
Those with an intense, burning desire to achieve their goals are often referred to as being “driven.” But is this special quality reserved only for a privileged few? Certainly not. With the right approach, anyone can cultivate a deep, burning desire within themselves and move to a state of total commitment, knowing with certainty that success is as inevitable as the sunrise.
Using mental programming.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) technique that can help you associate strong positive emotions to whatever goal you’re working to achieve. Find some music that really energizes and inspires you. Put on your headphones and listen to it for fifteen to twenty minutes, and as you do this, form a clear mental picture of yourself having already achieved the results you want. Make your imagery big, bright, vivid, colorful, three-dimensional, panoramic, and animated. Picture the scene as if looking through your own eyes (this is very important). This will help you form a neuro-association between the positive emotions elicited by the music and the goal you want to achieve, thus strengthening your desire. This is a great way to begin each day, and you can even do it while lying in bed when you first awaken if you set things up the night before. You should cycle the music periodically, since the emotional charge you get will tend to diminish if you listen to the same songs each time.
Keep in mind that this form of mental programming is already being used on you by advertisers. Watch a fast-food TV commercial, and you’ll note that the food is big, bright, and animated — spinning burgers, lettuce flying through a splash of water, ripe tomatoes being sliced — and don’t forget the catchy tune. So instead of letting others program your desires for you, take charge and mentally reprogram yourself.
The more you achieve in life, the more your faith in yourself will grow – and the more your inner strength and confidence will grow in your own ability.
You can achieve in life what you believe in life. Use your mind to work for you, not against you.
“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve. So not wait: the time will never be ‘just right’. Start where you stand, and work whatever tools you may have at your command and better tools will be found as you go along.”
How committed are you to achieving your goals? Under what conditions would you give up? What if you could significantly increase your desire to achieve your goals? What if you wanted them so badly that you knew with absolute certainty that you would absolutely, positively never ever give up? When you are truly 100% committed to reaching your goals, you move from hoping to knowing. If you want something badly enough, then quitting is simply not an option. You either find a way or make one. You pay the price, whatever it takes.
Feed your mind with empowering information on a daily basis.
Those who have tried even once know for sure how difficult it is to learn something new on your own. The 12-year-old girl, Adilyn Malcolm, showed by example that if your desire is big enough and you’re ready to work hard, you can achieve amazing results without leaving your room.
This girl was inspired by dubstep dancing and began to watch dancing videos on YouTube, trying to remember and repeat the moves. Adilyn says that it’s a very convenient tool: you can always pause, rewind, and review any dance move you need; you wouldn’t have such an opportunity in a dance class.
Just take a look at how great she is now, after only 8 months of practicing! Her example is a really inspiring one. It proves that if you admire what you do, you can work magic!
