What do you crave? What do you dream about? What ignites your passion and stirs a fire in your belly? What is your burning desire?
And why do you need to be crystal clear about this?
If your reason is not big enough or your desire not strong enough, you won’t do the work necessary or persist long enough to achieve what you want. You’ll give up at the first or second roadblock. It’s that simple. As Napoleon Hill wrote...

Such is the importance of burning desire to achieve awesomeness – to achieve what would otherwise be considered impossible.
How badly do you want to fulfill your destiny?
Success comes to those who dare to dream. When your dream is big and exciting
enough, it will drive your purpose and there is no fulfillment in life without purpose and
living up to our individual full potential. So let’s start dreaming big and exciting enough
dreams that fuel your passion and spark those flames of desire. How are you at
dreaming? Do you go for it or do you hold back because you don’t want to dream about
things that seem unattainable or unachievable for you? Do you have a big dream or do
you believe that the life you are living right now is your destiny so what’s the point of
