Having desire relates to emotional needs that we feel toward things we want in life. Our ability to achieve has everything to do with the amount of desire we possess to be successful.
Over they years, many have asked during coaching sessions how to tackle large efforts. They have the desire but do not know how to get started. Most people want to try to eat the elephant all at one sitting when it takes multiple sittings with very small bits.
Having a plan to tackle the desire is the best advice that can be given, then getting started to achieve the goal. The desire is wanting to complete the plan, and having a tactical process is very helpful to most.
Desire as an emotion can be a functional emotion. Desire is a sense of longing for a person or object or hoping for an outcome. Desire is what we feel when we want something and do not have it.
"The difference between getting somewhere and nowhere is the courage to make an early start. The fellow who sits still and does just what he is told will never be told to do big things."
