Desire

“Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s the determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal — a commitment to excellence — that will enable you to attain the success you seek.”  Andretti, Mario

What causes you to get out of bed in the morning?   It might be an obligation to do something, an obligation to another person, or an event.   It might be easier to ask, what keeps you in bed in the morning.    Maybe there isn’t anything compelling that would create the desire to get out of bed.

Activation energy is the term used that raises the energy to a level that allows us to get out of bed.   The amount of energy that it takes to get out of bed is the same amount of energy that it takes to create change in your life.   It is desire.  What creates that desire?

Take a look at Tony Robbins talks about desire.   It is a force that we have that once unleashed can create wonders.

Desire lives in an emotional well.   If there is no way to tap into that well then we aren’t going to achieve the results we so desperately want.   It takes time to dig the well deep enough to use those resources.  Emotion fuels athletes, it fuels corporate executives, it fuels politicians, it fuels the nurse in the middle of the night, it fuels the crying baby, it fuels that dream that you have and it fuels life. Tap into your desires today!

What are you waiting for?   Start now …
