We often hear people talk about you have to have the desire to want more. But what does that mean? Because I desire something does that mean I’m going to get it? Or is there more to the story? In this blog we are going to break down how to turn your desire into a reality.
The first thing you need to understand is the difference between a desire and a wish. When you look up the definition of the two words, they are similar but easily confused. When you wish for something its more of a want. I wish I had a million dollars. But when you desire something you are willing to do whatever it takes to get it. I’m going to get a million dollars. So, you need to turn that wish into desire.
One thing you will have to do is figure out what you want. Make sure it’s what you want. If you don’t know what you want, how do you know what to go after? If you focus and put your mind on the right task it will figure out the rest. You have to ask the right questions, such as how can I get that? This is why people say make a vision board so you can see what you most desire in front of you every day and stay focused.
After you know what you want, you have to visualize it in your head. Let your body fill with that joyful anticipation. Let it be so strong that you start smiling. When you visualize something, it does something to your mind and body. If you think about the opposite which is fear it creates anxiety. You fear what’s going to happen which has the physical effect of anxiety. You have to do the opposite and get excited for what you are about to get, what you see in your mind. It’s like a kid the night before Christmas. Everyone tries to stay up late or go to bed extra early to get those presents. Become a kid again and start seeing the things you want.
Finally, you have to believe you can get it. It’s not enough to desire something and visualize it, if you still think you will not get it or achieve that goal. You have to believe that all things are possible and not just possible but possible for you. You can and will get it. If you believe it your mind will make it happen. Your disbelief is what’s holding you back.
The Wright brothers said they were going to fly around the world. Think about how many people told them they were crazy. Think about how many disbelieved them. But they had a burning desire to make it happen and they did. Now people fly all around the world every day of the year. Be the Wright brothers.
The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today.
