Here is another one of those desire quotes. “You’re not what you are; you’re what you can be”. Your heart’s desire is one unique thing that no one else can do it the exact way you can. It is something deep inside you for a long time. It is what your heart is firmly set on having, being, seeing, feeling, achieving, and experiencing.
“Desire is the essence of a man.” – Benedict Spinoza
I am sure you have heard this desire quote, “When he sets his heart on something, watch out!” Or “When her heart is set on something, get out of her way“.
When your whole heart is committed, failure is not an option. The pursuit of your heartfelt desires, you exercise real initiative, resourcefulness, creativity, and endurance. Yes, you will definitely find a way to make it happen, no matter what.
The other day I came across the book aptly entitled “YOUR HEART’S DESIRES” by Sonia Choquette. In her book it outlines nine simple principles which we all can use them to find and follow our heart’s true desires:
1. Bring your dream into focus
2. Gain support of the subconscious mind
3. Imagine the heart’s desire
4. Eliminate obstacles
5. Receive Intuitive Guidance
6. Support the dream with love
7. Surrender control
8. Claim the dream
9. Stay true to the dream.
