We hear the word desire throughout our lives. Have you ever just said a word over and over and then it starts to sound funny? I have and then I think deeper about that word. What does it mean to have desire or to desire something? I like to look up definitions and get clarity when I am thinking about these types of things. So the definition according to Google is:
1. a strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen.
The interesting aspect of desire is that it really doesn’t invoke action. Just by the definition alone, we know in order for something to happen we need to act on that desire. You can sit all day long and wish for something to happen, but it will never happen by pure thought. The desire or wish for something to happen is the fire that we feel. If you desire something enough, the fire will create action. Without action, you are just daydreaming. Some folks will daydream and wish the universe to just let whatever it is they want fall in their lap. Life does not work this way. You have to be willing to take risks and suffer some heartache to get what it is you desire. We have all heard the “greater the risk, the greater the reward.” I am of the opinion that is not always the case. Don’t be stupid in your decisions. Take calculated risks. Think things through first, then take action toward making that desire a reality. If you want something bad enough and you are willing to put time and energy into getting it, you will achieve your goals. It doesn’t happen overnight. Building things takes time. If you don’t start now in trying to get it, you will just continue to daydream and never have it.
