If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

Driving desire

What is the most important thing you must contribute to your own success? It is the persistent and prevailing desire to make that success happen.

The things you don’t know can be learned. The resources necessary can be found and acquired.

Yet if there is no driving desire, then the knowledge and the resources will be of no use. Real, unique, meaningful desire is what will make success happen and is what will make it worthwhile.

Complex systems, vast networks and powerful machines can accomplish much. Yet they cannot figure out what to accomplish.

That is your special area of expertise. You are able to feel the tug of desire and then find ways to express and fulfill those desires.

Listen intently to your authentic desires, and dive into the heart of them. Find the value that you can give to all of life, and make it happen.
