Why is it Important to Know Your Desires?
When Wally was forced out of his own company, it seemed so unfair. But he refused to be a victim:
“When my company rejected me and gave me lemons, I decided to turn those lemons into lemonade. I remembered that doors had slammed in my face before, yet others had always opened to more brilliant prospects.
I chose to see my current situation as the necessary impetus for creating a fabulous future.
So I drew myself up and began to radiate a confident attitude. My intuition told me a divine plan was at work. I reminded myself that life is a process and that everything works together for the best.
I came to a place of understanding which turned my heart right around. My suffering and rejection turned into a sense of comfort and peace.
This acceptance recharged me and became a powerful force in my ensuing renewal. I decided not to give up, or complain, about what had happened – I refused to think that I was a failure.
Rather, I threw aside all the negative beliefs I had been taught in my life and I began to explore the possibilities ahead. I managed to triumph over financial misfortune because I drew on the power within to turn a seemingly hopeless situation into an absolute winner.”
You, too, can use the creative power of the Conquering Force to confront and shape your unique reality.
You can love and enjoy everything that you do when your projects and experiences become an extension of yourself. Your Core Desires become a reality to the extent that you pour yourself into them.
You will say along with Wally Amos, “I go out with a heart filled with passion and actualize what I desire. Everyone who achieves greatness or fulfillment in life starts out with a dream or desire and these call up limitless spiritual resources.”
I met a man once who had entered the Hawaiian Iron Man race, one of the toughest races ever devised. At 70 years old, he was the oldest entrant. As he was introduced at a meeting with the company that sponsored him, the speaker said, “I’m forty-five years old, and I could never do what he is doing.”
The athlete responded, “When I was your age I couldn’t either.” He hadn’t started running until he was 64 years old.
Such latent ability lies within you.
Core Desires stimulate your senses and awaken your entrepreneurial spirit. They fuel your imagination, release your creative energy, and draw a deep sense of commitment to action.
It will always be difficult to take action toward something you don’t desire.
