You will become as small as your controlling desire; as great as your dominant aspiration. James Allen

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

The soul attracts that which it secretly harbors; that which it loves, and also that which it fears. It reaches the height of its cherished aspirations. It falls to the level of its unchastened desires - and circumstances are the means by which the soul receives its own. James Allen

Desire creates the power. Raymond Holliwell

We are desire. It is the essence of the human Soul, the secret of our existence. Absolutely nothing of human greatness is ever accomplished without it. Not a symphony has been written, a mountain climbed, an injustice fought, or a love sustained apart from desire. Desire fuels our search for the life we prize. John Elderidge

1. Goals direct attention and effort toward goal-relevant activities and away from goal-irrelevant activities. 
2. Goals have an energizing function. Goals create efforts. 
3. Goals effect persistence. Goals prolong effort. 
4. Goals rally us to bring task-relevant knowledge and strategies to the problem at hand.
Edwin Locke and Gary Latham

Set a goal, and in small, consistent steps, work to reach it. Get support from your peers when you start flagging. Repeat. You will change. Seth Godin

Seek freedom and become captive of your desires; seek discipline and find your liberty. Frank Herbert

Burning desire to be or do something gives us staying power - a reason to get up every morning or to pick ourselves up and start in again after a disappointment

Most people can do extraordinary things if they have the confidence or take the risks. Yet most people don’t. They sit in front of the telly and treat life as if it goes on forever. Philip Andrew Adams

Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything. Napoleon Hill

Out of need springs desire, and out of desire springs the energy and the will to win. Denis Waitley

One essential to success is that your desire be an all obsessing one, your thoughts and aims be co-ordinated, and your energy be concentrated and applied without letup. Claude M. Bristol

Compare what you want with what you have, and you’ll be unhappy; compare what you deserve with what you have, and you’ll be happy. Evan Esar

The fundamental principle of human action, the law that is to political economy what the law of gravitation is to physics is that men seek to gratify their desires with the least exertion. Henry George

It sometimes seems that we have only to love a thing greatly to get it. 
Robert Collier

The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way

Desire is a teacher: When we immerse ourselves in it without guilt, shame, or clinging, it can show us something special about our own minds that allows us to embrace life fully. Mark Epstein

Whenever you start guiding yourself by caring about how you feel, you start guiding yourself back into your Stream of Source Energy, and that’s where your clarity is; that’s where your joy is; that’s where your flexibility is; that’s where your balance is; that’s where your good ideas come from. That’s where all the good stuff is accessed from. Abraham-Hicks

As long as you feel inspired, your life is being well spent. Hugh McLeod

A desire is anything but frivolous. It is the interface between you and that which is greater than you. No desire is meaningless or inconsequential. If it pulls you, even a little bit, it will take everyone higher. Desire is where the Divine lives, inside the inspiration of your desire. Every desire is of profound importance with huge consequences, and deserves your attention. Mama Gena
