Desire is an impulse sent from our truest self to ask that we express more of who we truly are. When we desire, our inner resources are mobilized to go after something we want to be or to have. Desires launch from us like rockets signaling Infinite Intelligence that we want something. The Universe responds in kind.

Burning Desire helps us keep our momentum forward to our dream. Napoleon Hill wrote Think and Grow Rich just after the Great Depression. His recipe for success includes as a first step, DESIRE.

      [If] there were none who were discontented with what they have, the world would never reach for anything better.
      –Florence Nightingale

      Divine Discontent is about to get us moving again. This is how the spiritual world inevitably gets our attention. Heaven knows it tries with all the fun prompts: imagination, intuition, coincidences, synchronicity, daydreams, reveries, and delightful hunches. But after we ignore them for years, just as little grains of sand, or “sleep.” are left in the corners of our eyes at night, little grains of grit are deposited in the cavities of our souls, where they will begin to irritate the lining of our lives, much the way one grain of sand does to the oyster before it produces a pearl.
      –Sarah Ban Breathnach

      Discontent and disorder [are] signs of energy and hope, not despair.
      –Dame Cicely Veronica Wedgewood

      It is never too late to be what you might have been.
      –George Eliot

      It’s never too late—in fiction or in life—to revise.
      –Nancy Thayer

      The beginning of every great success is desire.
      Napoleon Hill

      When you create desire, you also create
      The ability to complete that desire.
      Dr. Robert Schuller

      Only passions, great passions, can elevate the soul to great things.
      –Denis Diderot

      Hope is desire and expectation rolled into one.
      –Ambrose Bierce

      I had learned, from years of experience with men, that when a man really DESIRES a thing so deeply that he is willing to stake his entire future on a single turn of the wheel in order to get it, he is sure to win.
      –Napoleon Hill

      Every person who winds in an undertaking must be willing to burn his ships and cut all sources of retreat. Only by doing so can one be sure of maintaining that state of mind known as a BURNING DESIRE TO WIN, essential to win.
      –Napoleon Hill

      Only those who become “money conscious” ever accumulate great riches. “Money consciousness” means that the mind has become so thoroughly saturated with the DESIRE for money, that one can see one’s self already in possession of it.
      –Napoleon Hill

      One must realize that all who have accumulated great fortunes, first did a certain amount of dreaming, hoping, wishing, DESIRING, and PLANNING before they acquired money.
      –Napoleon Hill

      Awake, arise, and asset yourself, you dreamers of the world. Your star is now in the ascendency. The world depression brought the opportunity you have been waiting for. It taught people humility, tolerance, and open-mindedness.

      The world is filled with an abundance of OPPORTUNITY which the dreamers of the past never knew.

      A BURNING DESIRE TO BE AND TO DO is the starting point from which the dreamer must take off. Dreams are not born of indifference, laziness or lack of ambition.
      –Napoleon Hill

Believe and you receive” says Dr. Schuller’s inspirational quote. “Intense Belief in a goal is one of the most powerful forces on earth” says Zig Ziglar. Do you believe in yourself? I sure haven’t, and it has stopped me for years. I am slowly teaching myself to believe in myself and believe in others. We are taught in our American culture to turn to exterior sources, away from believing in ourselves in many ways. Our technology turns our attention away from our inside selves to the exterior. I think that corrodes away our ability to believe in our self. As we believe less, we need more external stimulation and entertainment or authority to distract ourselves away from the pain of not believing.

What I have recently learned is that I could dream a goal for myself, but if I truly don’t believe it is possible to achieve that goal, I don’t really move forward. Often I don’t believe it is possible because my imagination hasn’t been stretched enough so that I can see me actually “doing” my goal, in the future.

I write another blog on the laws of success and I’ve used myself as a guinea pig for lots of the articles I have written. I have a goal of writing a book on how to succeed. It is only very recently that I realized I was not able to imagine the book complete, and in the hands of readers. Writing wasn’t the issue. Belief and Imagination were the stuck places.

William James’s inspirational quote says that what the human mind can conceive and believe, it can accomplish. Finally, in my imagination workshops that I do regularly, I am seeing my book published, and read by lots of people. And I find that I continue to write steadily away. I hope you enjoy the inspirational quotes about the concept of Believe. You might enjoy some of the essays on imagination and faith over at The Purpose Inspirational Quote section is helpful too.

      Believe and receive. Doubt and do without.
      –Dr. Robert Schuller

      Impossible is a world found only in the dictionary of fools.

      What the human mind can conceive and believe, it can accomplish.
      –William James

      The man who says ‘it can’t be done” is often interrupted
      by a man who is doing it.
      –Chinese Proverb

      The height of your accomplishments will equal
      the depth of your convictions.
      –Walter Bagehot

      It is a wonderful feeling when you discover some evidence to support beliefs.

      A firm belief attracts facts. They come out of the holes in the ground and cracks in the walls to support belief, but the facts run from doubt.
      –Finley Potter Dunne

      Every man believes he has a greater possibility.
      –Ralph Waldo Emerson

      Ambition is the shadow of a dream.
      –William Shakespeare

      Intense belief in a goal is one of the most powerful forces on earth….No matter what the odds may be or how insurmountable the barriers appear, belief dictates that there is a way.
      –Zig Ziglar

That last quote is one of the most significant inspirational quotes I have read. “Intense belief in a goal is one of the most powerful forces on earth.” Have you been taught to have intense belief in your goals? It’s time. Me? I’m going to wander back to read about Self Confidence. You? Believe in yourself. You are one of the miracles of creation.
