A a creative man is
motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat othetrs. The will
to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach our full potential, these are
the keys that unlock the door to personal excellence.
is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.-Jim Ryun
Desire and the force
between them are responsible for all our actions; desire causes our voluntary
acts, forces our involuntary. It is the key to motivation, but it's
determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of our goal and a
commitment to excellence
that enables us to attain the success we seek.
Desire is the starting
point of all achievement, not a hope, nor a wish, but a keen pulsating desire
which transcends everything. Desire makes life happen; makes it matter and makes
everything worth it.
Our destiny changes
with our thought; we shall become what we wish to become, do what we wish to do,
when our habitual thought corresponds with our desire. Dreams can become a
reality when we possess a vision that is characterized by the willingness to
work hard, a desire for excellence, and a belief in our right and our
responsibility to be equal members of society.
inspiration the best powers of the mind remain dormant. There is a fuel
in us which needs to be ignited with sparks.-Johann Gottfried Von Herder
One of the most
difficult things everyone has to learn is that, for our entire life we must keep
fighting and adjusting, if we hope to survive. No matter who we are or what our
position is, we must keep fighting for whatever it is our desire to achieve.
There is one quality which we must possess to win, and that is definiteness of
purpose, the knowledge of what we want, and a burning desire to possess it.
I have learned that
the size of our success is measured by the strength of our desire; the size of
our dream; and how we handle disappointment along the way.There are moments when
we feel that the desire to pursue what we crave is fading, and the only way to
bring it back is to get away from it, to put ourselves in a state of frustration
so we feel the need again. Practice means to perform, over and over again in the
face of all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of desire. Practice is a
means of inviting the perfection desired.
I have also learned
that there are two tragedies in life: one is to lose our heart's desire; the
other is to gain it. To burn with desire and keep quiet about it is the greatest
punishment we can bring on ourselves. Some of us go too far greater lengths to
avoid what we fear than to obtain what we desire. We donít spoil what we have by
desiring what we have not; let us remember that what we now have was once among
the things we only hoped for. Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of
man's desire to understand.

than others think is safe, dream more than others think is practical,
