HOPE & DESIRE

HOPE AND DESIRE

Hope and Desire are the energies that fuel our Creative Dreams

We must BELIEVE our desires are attainable.
 If we don't BELIEVE, HOPE dies and DESIRE disappears.

A few Friday afternoons ago, by pure synchronistic chance, I picked up an old dog-eared paperback book while cleaning out our very dusty little 9'x9' room we affectionately call "The Library."  This book had found its way underneath the sofa. It was flattened into an "open" position, cocooned in wads of German Shepherd hair. I was about to throw it in the trash bag when I glanced at the open pages (128-129). Someone had highlighted certain paragraphs in green. At the bottom of Page 129, in an old-fashioned beautiful script, was written, "Desire Defined"...
Thoughts To Steer By
"Motivation is that which induces action or determines choice. It is the hope or other force which starts an action in an attempt to produce specific results. Motivate yourself with PMA (positive mental attitude). Remember: What the mind of man can conceive and believe the mind of man can achieve with PMA. Recognize the possibility of the improbable. HOPE is the magic ingredient in motivating yourself and others. Negative emotions, feelings, thoughts and attitudes are good at the proper time and under the right circumstances. The 10 basic motives are: Self-preservation, love, fear, sex, desire for life after death, freedom of body and mind, anger, hate, desire for recognition and self-expression, and the desire for material wealth."

Riveted by how laser-appropriate these words were to my assignment on the concept of Hope and Desire; I thumbed through the chapter. A few more passages were highlighted in green,


"Hope is a desire with the expectation of obtaining what is desired and belief that it is obtainable. A person consciously reacts to that which to him is desirable, believable and attainable. Man is the only member of the animal kingdom who, through the functioning of his conscious mind, can voluntarily control his emotions from within, rather than be forced to do so by external influences. Emotions are controlled through the combination of reason and action. When fears are unwarranted, or harmful, they can and should be neutralized. HOW? One effective means is through self-suggestions, in fact, self-command, and with a one word symbol that incorporates what you want to be. Thus, if you are afraid and want to be courageous, give the self-command BE COURAGEOUS with rapidity several times. Follow this with action.
If you want to be courageous, ACT courageously...Use the self-starter DO IT NOW! And then get into action. Keep your mind on the things you should and do want and off the things you shouldn't and don't want."

More attention-grabbing morsels are scattered throughout the pages of this book but it does read a tad dated So, I checked the copyright... 1960! WOW! This famous epistle may be the creative-motivational booster shot you've been looking for.   Written by one of the original self-help gurus, it is worth a look. Take what you like and leave the rest.The title is: SUCCESS THROUGH A POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE by Napoleon Hill.

FOLLOW THAT DREAM NOW!  
DESIRE IT WITH COURAGEOUS HOPE!
