The First And Most Important Thing…

by Yvonne Ruke Akpoveta

What would you say the first and most important thing is when it comes to achieving your goals?

I dare say it is DESIRE! I am in total agreement with Napoleon Hill when he says:

The starting point of all achievement is desire.

Do you have a goal? How are things going with it? … Also, how would you rank you level of desire to see the results want?

If I were to ask you on a scale of 1-10, how strong is your desire to achieve this goal, what would you say?… If were to further ask you on a scale of 1-10, how much effort and work are you willing to put in to see the results you want?

If your desire is not hitting a 8-10, and your readiness to put in the hard work does not exceed your desire. I dare say again that you will struggle.

Many times we say we want something – but until we have a strong desire to see it manifest, and a stronger willingness to put in the effort – then we can start seeing the results we want.

It is a strong desire for what we want that gets us up in the morning, motivates us to keep going when we face defeat, and drives our creativity to find alternatives when faced with obstacles.

Desire alone will not get us there, but is foundational in driving the results we want.

Want to put ‘desire’ into action?

To Do: Think about your goal, and ask yourself ‘Why’. Be very clear from within on why you want it. Do you want it strong enough that you are prepared to put in whatever hard work and sacrifice required? Make desire your starting point
