The Key – Your Burning Desire

Focus on your burning desire

Dream Big

You have a clear picture of your vision/your goal. You’ve visualized what your life will look like when you achieve this vision.

Then out of the blue, roadblocks start showing up for you. These roadblocks may appear in many different forms. All sorts of issues may arise to pull you off course, seemingly determined to stop your progress. The biggest roadblock may be looking back at you in the mirror.

Yes, you heard right. You may be the biggest stumbling block holding you back from achieving your vision/your dream. There will always be challenges in every aspect of your journey. How you react to them shows how committed you are to your vision.

By facing your challenges, you discover your potential.


Many times, you may feel as if you’re up against the wall with only two options – step towards your dream with your whole heart or walk away in defeat. This means pushing against the walls of your comfort zone. Stretching and stepping into the unknown. Not knowing what that will look like, yet moving forward no matter what. If you’re not ready to step outside of your comfort zone you’ll stay right where you are. Dreams do not become reality by waiting for divine intervention to do everything for you.

So how DO you face these challenges?

What is that key that will enable you to move forward?


Your desire to achieve your goals or dreams must be so strong and powerful that it transcends everything else. To “see” yourself there you will have to clarify your goal or dream. You will have to decide that no other outcome is acceptable. In effect, you are burning your bridges so there is no retreat. Be persistent, do not recognize defeat.

Reinforcing your desire can be accomplished through 6 definite steps, which are outlined in Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill:

1st: Fix in your mind the exact details of the dream or goal that you desire. Be definite and clear as to what this is.

2nd: Determine exactly what you intend to give in return for that which you desire. (There is no such reality as “something for nothing”)

3rd: Establish a definite date when you intend to possessor achieve your desired dream.

4th: Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire, and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.

5th: Write out a clear, concise statement of the dream/goal you intend to complete, name the time limit for it’s completion, state what you intend to give in return for that dream, and describe clearly the plan through which you intend to accomplish it.

6th: Read your written statement aloud, twice daily, once just before retiring at night, and once after arising in the morning. As you read – see and feel and believe yourself already in possession of the dream or goal.

“The object is to want… and to become so determined to have it that you convince yourself you will have it.”

Napoleon Hill

May I suggest a way to really empower your statement? Use the visualization you created around Your Dream Think of this as you read your statement. Bring that vision to life!

This may seem impossible to visualize, but if you truly desire your dream or goal so strongly, your subconscious mind will believe this as fact and work to bring this to you. Your subconscious does not recognize the difference between reality and what you imagine. Its job is to create reality from your thoughts. THAT”S how powerful your subconscious mind is! All that you need is within you, tap into it!

Believing in yourself and possessing that burning desire to accomplish your dream is the solid foundation you build from. Let no one deter or ridicule your dream/goals.

Now be aware that there will be times when you may have to adjust the steps of your plan. Opportunities or challenges may appear that were unforeseen. Be ready to adjust and adapt. Each time you overcome an obstacle or challenge, your confidence will grow. This will prepare you for the next challenge.

Sometimes in the winds of change we find our true direction.

Mac Anderson

Surrender to the process. Choose faith, trust and belief as your companions. Make your request, believe in your dream, align yourself with your dream and free yourself by surrendering to the Higher Power. The How-To’s will show up for you. Be aware of them when they present themselves to you. This is when you step into it and take action.

Give yourself permission to achieve your dreams/goals.

You ARE worth it!
