Desire, why it is not enough?
The first step towards achieving success is desire according to Napoleon Hill. (Think and Grow Rich) What is that you wish for? Fame, wealth, love, recognition? Whatever it is that you desire you can have it according to the law of attraction. Lots of people have desires you may think, and most people have more wants and lack than anything else. What is that you have to do to make your desires a reality?
We all have desires since as early as we can remember, who doesn't want money, success, relationships; but few of us has it. What is the reason why most people don't get what they desire and a few do? Are there different grades of desire, or what is that we have to do with our desires for them to materialize, what is the secret to get what we desire?
The law of attraction teaches, you have but to claim it, visualize yourself as already having it, believe in it as if it was already here and then it will come into your reality. If the desire is strong enough and you put your mind to it and see your self having what you desire and you allow it in your mind and thoughts it will materialize.
"It is not will, but desire" says Charles W. Mears, “that rules the world. " The reason you have not already gotten what you desire is because you are in a vibration holding pattern that does not match your desire. And the only way to accomplish a vibration match is by releasing your resistant thoughts, because the force of fear is stronger than your desires, right now the force of fear is the strongest force that is working inside of you and if you don't replace that paralyzing energy it will always go against your desires.
Fear is the most powerful motivator there is and unfortunately for us it doesn't need much help, it runs on autopilot. Before you can accomplish your desires you must be aware about this force, you must be aware of and learn to control your fears, you can not make any changes before you do that. All of our actions are caused by motivation and our decision to do nothing are always based on motivation too, if you are not taking action your inaction is motivated by fear.
Once you are aware that there is a force that is holding you back and that you have the power to control it then you just gave your first step towards real power. Real power comes only from consciousness of power and that is the first step you need to take. You are able to control the thoughts that come to mind because those thoughts create feelings and feelings create vibrations and only controlling this process you can have vibrations in tune with your desires.
The thing to do is gently and gradually, one by one, release your resistant thoughts, replace them with new and empowering thoughts. Your gradual release of negative thoughts will be the indicator that you are releasing resistance, just as your feelings of increased tension, anger, frustration, and so on, have been your indicators that you have been adding to your resistance.
Now that we know that desire is the beginning of all attraction we can have some of that magic work in our lives. To allow it you must stand on the brink of what is coming, feeling eager, optimistic anticipation of you desires materializing, with no feelings of impatience or doubt, that is how we can create stronger desires and let them develop in a phenomenal force that will bring a new reality to our lives.
