“Your definite main goal is a set of thoughts…thoughts you control. Desire is an emotion which you create and control. Enthusiasm is a state of mind also subject to your control. Desire plus enthusiasm is the pulsating force to create things from thought.” Thomas D. Willhite.
A thought by itself leads nowhere. Everyone has thoughts, and most people let them linger a little before slowly fading away.
Desire by itself can be dangerous, leading to temptation and madness when uncontrolled.
Enthusiasm by itself is like the little child anxious to play with a new toy. When the novelty wears off, the child becomes bored.
However, when the three are combined something magical happens. Combine desire and enthusiasm with thoughts and the world is in the palm of your hands. Desire gives substance to your thoughts and enthusiasm gives them direction.
You control your destiny by controlling your desire, enthusiasm and your thoughts. When you can balance the three, at the right levels, there is no stopping you. You can set the world on fire, a fire so strong they’ll be talking about you long after your gone.
So what are you waiting for? Go set the world on fire!
