Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everythingNapoleon Hill
All desires have differents meaning, but it can be categorized into two things :
- Desire that comes from within
- Desire that comes from outside
Desire that come from outside
This desire come so often nowadays, especially in an era where you can find everything that you want, and we are blessed with so much platform and technology that can help us do anything. This is a privilege that we currently have in our era, that the other era before us have it. But it can be a double-edged sword for us.
Google, Instagram, and Youtube I bet you guys use this everyday, I use those applications too everyday. Especially I use Google if i want to search something that I don’t know, just input your keyword and voila…it just take 0,000001 seconds to get the results.
How about Instagram then? This is where things got so interesting, often times, the quality of stories and post that we see in our Instagram timeline decided by the persons that you are following, but they have one thing in common. They showing their best moments in their life. Those moments are so mesmerizing and breathtaking, it also beautiful. By seeing those moments, it makes us desire to at least feel or being the same way as them, having the same moment as them, visiting beautiful places, doing great hobbies, taking astonishing pictures. Those moments in Instagram, contribute to some of our desire. it makes us want to do something in order to have beautiful moments like our friends had. But how about desire that comes from within?
Desire that comes from within
This desire is unique. Why is that so? Because it come from each person, and each person have different personalities, preferences, and of course dreams, and different DNA.
For example, I have so many desires, and many of them came from inside.
I really want to go abroad since I was a child, I don’t know where and when this ideas came from, but I just want it, without any logical reasons. The opportunities to speak foreign language such as English is a really delightful experience for me, I am so curious about it, I love speaking it, I love the feeling of visiting another country beside my country. United States, Germany, France, Spain, Italy. Japanese…. Those are my favorite countries to visit
Whether it is traveling, studying, or working, it doesn’t really matter. I want it. If this desires are not fulfilled in my current life, I think i would not feel so happy at all, this desires would make me curious about it, unless I do it.
Then why don’t you do it? After these 27 years of life that you have.
I have ton of excuses after keep failing to reach my dreams, it almost, but almost not ever enough. the last time I tried was 2018, I was one step away from going to Japan, doing Internships in there. And also I remembered the opportunities to volunteering in Germany for 1 years, I failed at both of that. Since that, I reluctantly following those dream.
Then it is not about why, but it is about wanting.
Do you want it or not?
If do you want it, You will do everything you can to achieve that, no matter what happened.
If you do not want it, You will do everything you can to not achieve that, by using ton of excuses.
My soul want it, that is why those desires keep coming to my mind. But my mind and my body do not want it, they are tired because of the failures that I have.
Now it is up to me to convince them, to convince them that we are going to do the best that we can to achieve that. Just keep doing, until we have the breakthrough moment.
Like Nike said, Just do it
