You Can Achieve Anything If You Have A "Burning Desire"

How Burning Desire Makes You Achieve Anything

Let’s start this article with a story about “Success” which tells us that there is only one secret of success.

Burning Desires

There was a young boy who once asked a wise man about the secret of success. The wise man told the young boy to meet him next day near the river. 

Next day the boy goes to meet with the wise man. The wise man asks him to walk with him towards the river. They both start walking. When the water of river comes, to the neck of the young boy, the wise man ducks him in the water. The young boy starts struggling to come out of water. The wise man keeps the young boy in the water until he starts turning blue. After sometime the wise man pulls young boy out of the water and the boy starts taking deep breathe to get into normal condition. The wise man asks him: What was the one thing you wanted the most when in water? The boy replies, “Air”. The wise man says, “That is the secret of success”. 

When you want success or something as badly as you wanted air in the water, then you get the success or that thing. This is the only secret of success.

You can achieve anything in your life but to do that you need to develop a particular mindset and take the first step.

First Step to Achieving Anything in Your Life

If you truly want to achieve anything that you really want, the very first step you need to take is, to get out of your comfort zone. This is only possible when you have a “Burning Desire”.

What is Burning Desire?

In simple words, it is a first thought which comes to your mind and make you think deeply about it. It starts ruling your mind and you become so energetic that you make it your life purpose. You agree to devote your life to achieve that initial 
thought which became your Burning Desire.

It is this initial thought which takes you out of your comfort zone.

Getting out of comfort zone means that you are open to the challenges in the process and temporary failures, after facing which, you will get the ultimate success, freedom and happiness.

Success is not in achieving something but it is in the process to achieve something.

It does not matter that you must have money or you know the exact path of achieving the burning desire. The path becomes clear once you commit yourself, to some burning desire.

How to Know That a Desire Is a Burning Desire?

If a thought or desire comes in your mind and you think about it deeply but you do not feel it coming from your very inner, you are not ready to take massive actions, you are not ready to change your life or achieve that desire, than that desire is not your burning desire.

Burning desires are not ordinary desires. Burning desire is basically the starting point for all the accomplishment. When you find some thought and you start doing what you normally avoid doing in life, than chances are that you identified a burning desire.

Burning Desire Will Make You Do Abnormal Things

No matter what are the circumstances, your Burning Desire will make you work long hours, face challenges, face rejections, meet with people, change the existing condition, learn the process of achieving it or do whatever.

You make your burning desire as the biggest and most important objective of your life. Your days and nights are spent on it.

A “definite major purpose” is required in your life and that purpose will be achieved when you have a burning desire to achieve it.

No one can stop you from achieving your biggest aim in life except you. If you are not committed, emotional, focused, greedy and passionate about your biggest aim in your life, then you cannot achieve your burning desire.

You agree to do whatever it takes, to achieve what you truly want in your life and that only happens, when something comes from your deep inner, which enlightens and rule your mind. This is something you make major part of your life.

Not to Quit Due To Temporary Failures

When you surrender in front of the defeats they overtake your mind. When defeats take over mind the easiest thing which people do is “QUIT”. It is a killer of your burning desire.

When you quit, to achieve a desire due to a temporary defeat and go back to your comfort zone then you fail. That quitting from the process is what you regret later in your life.

But when you are one hundred percent committed to achieve your life goal then no matter how many temporary defeats you face, you keep on moving forward after every failure. 

This moving on to achieve the life goal is the key to success. You need to ensure that your life and circumstances do not put hurdles in achieving your biggest desire.

Successful people know that whenever they start new things or projects, they will face various temporary defeats but they are not scared of these defeats, instead they see them as opportunities and part of normal process. They think that these temporary defeats are necessary to maintain the focus and be motivated.

Most successful men in the world have shared their thoughts and experiences, with other people and authors, at different forums that they achieved their biggest success just one step beyond the point, at which defeat had overtaken them. 

Successful people know that the temporary defeats are to convert them in to bigger opportunities.
