Disciplining Desire

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

In Napoleon Hill’s classic book “Think and Grow Rich” he identifies desire as the starting point of all achievement.  Of course, he was not talking about any desire – but a desire for a positive result, outcome or personal goal.  

We all have desires, but we have to discern which ones will take us to long-term success and happiness and which will only lead to problems for us.  Then we need to choose to follow the right ones and be self-disciplined enough to forego the wrong ones.

“The discipline of desire is the backbone of will and character” – Will and Ariel Durant

Which desires are you chasing?


I posted an excerpt from a video in the School of Entrepreneurship on having an unwavering desire to want to succeed.
