The energy of DESIRE

In every desire is the energy and motivation needed to fulfill that desire. The problem is that we often use even more energy to fight the desire. That's like driving your car with one foot on the accelerator and one on the brake pedal at the same time.

We have desires for a reason. They motivate us to take action. They compel us to take action. Unfortunately, we often don't want to take action. So we launch a counterattack on our desires, with powerful weapons such as fear, unworthiness, guilt, and anger. Not only does this require tremendous effort, it also destroys the original power of the desire. What a waste!

What are your desires, your goals? Are you using their own energy to go toward them? Or are you wasting your energy by fighting them, by frightening, shaming or rationalizing them away?

Far better to just go ahead and take the actions necessary to reach your desired goals. You know what you want. You know how to get it. Take action. Stop wasting your life fighting with yourself, and do what needs to be done.

I think we waste more energy in just dreaming and then looking for all the problems that would impede the accomplishment of them or as you put it-killing them!

I wish we could just get down to acting n them and keep working.Every post of yours motivates me,keep going!
