What is your definite desire? That one thing that you want, that dominates your thoughts.

You see, if you don’t have one, you need to find one. In order for us to live a full and abundant life, we must live with a purpose. A goal that is all consuming, that wakes us up in the morning and puts us to bed at night. If you are still in need of an alarm clock to rise on time every morning then you’re probably not working toward a definite desire.

Strong desire drives us relentlessly until we have accomplished our goal. It doesn’t matter where or how you start. Desire with organized effort and faith is the equalizer. It is one of the most important things, that we all have in common.

The most successful people in the world, whether they’re Michael Jordan, Oprah Winfrey, or Denzel Washington, have all achieved tremendous success in very different areas, that is evident for all to see.

"However, even in the worst depression, an unselfish businessman who keeps his mind concentrated principally upon God, the Giver of all things, will never lose everything, unless it is a divine test intended to help him spiritually. And those who consider the world their home, and work for the advancement of group or world prosperity, will find prosperity even in poverty-stricken environments.

It is a popular error to think that unselfishness involves tormenting sacrifice and loss. Unselfishness is the only lasting way to secure individual prosperity."
