Monday Mottoes – #73

thTime to get honest. What do you want in life? I mean, really want?

I spoke with a friend today who’s been battling cancer for the last six months, pulled through, and doing quite well. Her grown daughter talked about how the two of them would just sit together and cry some days, not out of sorrow, but from the close bond they had formed. The daughter didn’t want to go to work, still had to care for her own daughter, while feeling the desire to be with her mom 24/7.

“Your life has to go on, too,” I comisserated.

“But this IS my life,” she motioned to her mother.

How true.

So what do we really want? What are we willing to work toward, and sacrifice for, and focus on? From relationships, to 2961cd2e3f4f2780bf57ff16c3763275education, to income, to lifestyle? If we’re unsure, we need to crystallize it down to desire, which brings us to today’s motto:

“The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat.” ~Napoleon Hill

Desire is the fuel that keeps us moving forward. It provides us with the want-to and pushes us to make a commitment. And that’s not a bad thing.

Build that bonfire today.

Happy Monday, everyone!
