"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."
Each of us were born with a burning desire to be our absolute best an internal zeal to live our lives as we have repeatedly dreamed they could be. And it is this white heat passion that can drive each and every one of us to unimagined heights. Yet, as unbelievable as it seems, far too many of us have allowed our burning desire to smolder and almost go out.
But as long as there is at least a flicker of a flame down in your heart and soul, there is hope. And a little hope is all you really need in order to fan the weakest of flames into a roaring fire. Contrary to what many may lead you to believe, your desire to be your best never goes completely out. Its still there, brilliantly burning within you. Even after years of neglect, the feeblest of flames can still be set ablaze by hope.
"Some men go through a forest and see no fire wood."
How many times have you heard someone say, "Its too late for me. Ill never be able to live my dreams?" Probably way too many times. You may have even uttered those words yourself on occasion. And on each and every occasion, Ill wager that hope was in very short supply.
Instead of seeing the abundance all around, you more than likely focused on the problems, challenges and difficulties surrounding you. Just when you needed to fan the flames with a blast of super charged enthusiasm and energy, you doused the fire with despair, pessimism and hopelessness.
"Man is so made that when anything fires his soul, impossibilities vanish."
Jean De La Fontaine
Fanning the fire down below is nothing more than fanning your enthusiasm for living. We all desperately need our lives to be the rich and rewarding adventures we have always dreamed about. They can be and will be when we set ourselves afire with an unquenchable zest for life. The key is to rekindling and then igniting your fire is simple: follow your heart, chase your rainbow and do those things you were born to do.
"Each one of us has a fire in our heart for something. It's our goal in life to find it and to keep it lit."
Mary Lou Retton
When you passionately pursue your hopes and dreams, finally throwing caution to the wind, youll powerfully light your own fire. By finding your niche and then filling it, pursuing that one special something that sets you ablaze, youll fan your fire into a raging inferno that simply cannot be stopped or put out again.
Without a doubt, you do indeed have a fire in your gut to make things happen and to make a difference in the world. Whatever you do, please never neglect that fire again. Fan that fire down below and make certain that you keep it lit for the rest of your life!
The Bottom Line: When you light the fire down below, setting your heart ablaze with purpose and passion, getting fired up and staying fired up will never be a problem again.
