Desire, Fuel for
success: How to Keep it Alive and Burning Strong
Anyone who wishes to achieve their dreams must have desire. It may be the only thing to keep you going when all else seem to fail. But how do you keep the fire burning and your dreams alive when there's doubt and uncertainty all around you?

What is it that makes one man go where others don't dare tread? And that keeps him going even when the odds seem so insurmountable? When others around him expect the worst, and obstacle upon obstacle, cause him to wonder if perhaps, just perhaps, everybody might be right and he may be crazy?
That my friend is what is called DESIRE! Desire is one of the strongest emotions, and one of the greatest forces man has ever known. When harnessed properly it will give you everything you have ever wanted! Desire is the Fuel for success.
Just as a car or any other automobile needs fuel to keep going, a man's desire is what drives him and will ultimately determine if he will hold that prize at the end of the race. The thing that determines why the one person Does and the other Doesn't is not physical ability or the lack thereof, but desire and or the absence thereof.
It is said where there is a will there is a way, but what isn't said is that the will doesn't exist by itself and of itself. It is fuelled by desire. If you have lost your desire for whatever it is you want, you have Lost the Race.
Desire doesn't reason or justify. All it wants is satisfaction. It is not concerned with how you bring it about.
Desire, like most things is not something you are born with. It is a force and power which can be induced through the senses such as sight, hearing and smell. Let me give you an example.
When you see a beautiful woman or man, it does something to you. It triggers a power or force that will either die a natural death, or will become a raging fire.
That depends on what you do with it from that point onwards. Now, I used the example of being attracted to either a man or a woman, but desire is not limited to that. You can desire a big house, a car or desire to travel the world. However this will not mean much, until you crystallize this desire into something tangible, something you can see, hear, smell or touch.
So, to induce desire for whatever it is you want, you have to introduce the object of your desire, to your senses. The more you see something, the stronger your desire for that thing will become.
Lets take the example of a beautiful woman or man again. If he or she has made enough of an impression on you, you would want to see that person again, right? But if you leave it to chance you may or may not see him or her again. In the event you don't, the feelings will likely die a natural death.
But lets say, you see that person again and again, what do you think will happen? That's right! The feelings you have will become stronger.
So what you need to do is to introduce the object of your desire to your senses, not once or twice but again and again and again.
If you can, physically touch and smell and experience the object of your desire. If you desire wealth, go to the places that are symbols of wealth and get the feeling of wealth.
This can be places like expensive restaurants or five-star hotels. If you can afford it, book a room or a suite, even if it's just for one night.
If you don't have a lot of cash just go there and book a table. Order a cup of coffee or something else which isn't too expensive. I'm sure you get the picture. Do this over and over and you'll find that your Desire gets stronger and stronger.
You can apply this to anything and you will find that your desire burns stronger than ever.
If you know someone who is wealthy, approach the person and offer to assist with anything, free of charge. Most people will appreciate this gesture. Some might even take you along to places they go and may even introduce you to their circle of friends.
Alternatively go to a Dealership that sells expensive cars and just sit in one of the cars in the show room. Experience the feeling of wealth. Touch the expensive leather and wood, smell it. You can do this as often as you like. The more you do it the higher your desire will be. Do all this in addition to your other efforts to accomplish your goal.
If you cannot physically go to the places I've mentioned, you can get these places and objects to come to you. Looking at pictures is another good way to increase your desire and it doesn't cost you anything, other than a little effort.
You see, your subconscious mind doesn't know the difference between a real and imagined experience. It will accept whatever is imprinted upon it, and will start attracting that condition in terms of the people and circumstances that you need to satisfy Your Desire!
There are thousands of magazines that have pictures of the object you desire. Here's what I have done and what you can do too.
Cut out some pictures that vividly depict the thing you want and paste it all over your room or office. Position some of the pictures in such a way that it is the first thing you see when you wake up or come into that room, and the last thing you see when you leave or fall asleep.
Here is a final thought. Desire alone will not accomplish your your goals for you, it is just the Fuel. Imagine a car with fuel but no engine. Or a car that has fuel and an engine but no wheels. It won't go anywhere. The same goes for someone who only has desire.
This by the way describes about 90% of all the people in the world, who only desire things but are not prepared to do what it takes to get what they want.
How to Get Better
Poor fuel economy can put a costly damper on any vacation taken in the family vehicle. But there are a few simple things you can do to enhance your fuel economy no matter what type of vehicle you drive, which means you'll buy less gas and have more money to enjoy your vacation.
How to Get Better Fuel Economy
Poor fuel economy can put a costly damper on any summer vacation taken in the family vehicle. But there are a few simple things you can do to enhance your fuel economy no matter what type of vehicle you drive, which means you'll buy less gas and have more money to enjoy the summer.
Let's go through a few ideas that are proven to improve your fuel economy.
Get the junk out of the trunk. I own an auto-repair facility, and you'd be amazed at the amount of stuff I find in trunks of cars these days. I've seen junk in the trunk of cars equivalent to a full-size man. Why haul the dead weight? Remove unnecessary winter supplies such as bags of salt and tire chains from the trunk of your vehicle. Get that bag of old newspapers to the recycling bin. Your vehicle will require less energy to move without the dead weight. So ask yourself if you really need to be transporting around that card table, set of golf clubs or storage container, and unload any unnecessary items from your trunk.
Keep air in your tires. Remember what it was like riding your bike as a child with half-flat tires? It was hard to get the bike moving. Once you inflated the tires, your bike was like a new sports car; it went faster with far less effort. Your car feels the same pain when the tires are at, say, 28 psi instead of the recommended 35 psi. (Just to be clear: Not every tire should be inflated to 35 psi. Look for the recommended psi rating on a label on your driver's door or in the glove box.)
Use the right motor oil for your vehicle. I can't overstate the importance of using good motor oil. To illustrate what I mean, try a little exercise. Take your hands and place them together with palms touching. Then rub the palms against each other quickly. Feel that warmth generated by friction? That's exactly what is happening inside your engine. If you rubbed your hands together like that for an hour, you'd probably do some damage to your hands (which means you can stop rubbing your palms together now). And you'd also have to work much harder to rub your hands together.
Now you know why motor oil is so important to the efficient performance of your engine. If you put motor oil between those two sliding surfaces, a lot of that friction goes away, and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. As a result, your engine is more fuel efficient.
But not every motor oil is created equal. Some last longer than others. While certain motor oils may lose their effectiveness after a few thousand miles, others are designed to last for a very long time. ExxonMobil makes an oil, Mobil 1 Extended Performance, that is actually guaranteed to protect and perform for up to 15,000 miles.
Keep your vehicle clean. Believe it or not, that layer of dirt on your exterior creates drag that, over long distances, hurts your miles-per-gallon count. Keeping your vehicle washed and waxed will improve your vehicle's aerodynamics, improving your fuel economy. And you'll feel good about driving around in a clean vehicle.
Consider the best option for ventilation. Conventional wisdom says that cars are always more fuel-efficient when the air conditioner is off. On long trips or highway driving, however, using the air conditioner is actually more fuel efficient than rolling down the windows. When driving fast, open windows create a drag that forces the engine to work harder to maintain speed. If you're driving on short trips or in city traffic, roll down the windows and enjoy the breeze, but on the highway, turn on the air.
How To Leave Global
Warming Out In The Cold
Global warming, experts contend, is an urgent problem--but there are concrete steps every American can take to be part of the solution. There are so many ways people use energy--therefore there are so many opportunities every day to make a difference.
How To Leave Global Warming Out In The Cold
Global warming, experts contend, is an urgent problem-but there are concrete steps every American can take to be part of the solution. There are so many things we do every day that use energy-therefore we have so many opportunities every day to make a difference.
When cars, factories and power plants burn fossil fuels, such as oil and gas, they release global-warming pollution. These pollutants accumulate in the atmosphere for many decades, acting like a huge blanket that traps heat. That, in turn, warms our planet. The global-warming pollution, primarily carbon dioxide, emitted from the first model T's is still in the atmosphere, acting as a thickening layer of insulation. With our increased reliance on fossil fuels, the concentration of these pollutants continues to accumulate, threatening the stability of our climate.
Distinguished scientists across the nation have been surprised by the speed and severity of the issue and its effects on people's lives: the elderly suffering from heat waves, families whose homes are threatened by floods and eroding coastlines, hunters and anglers watching wildlife disappear and homeowners who are at risk of mudslides.
Scientists are convinced that we now have a small window of time to avoid the most dangerous consequences. If we join together now to solve this problem, they say, our children may be spared even more dramatic effects within their lifetimes.
To help, there's a Web site that lists easy ways to help slow down global warming. For example, did you know that:
• An energy-conscious family can reduce its global-warming pollution contribution by over 35,000 pounds per year by taking such simple steps as selecting Energy Star appliances and insulating their house.
• You can save money on electricity by installing a programmable thermostat, which reduces global-warming pollution.
• If you plan your trips to combine errands, this will reduce emissions, saving gas, wear and tear on your car, and your valuable time.
• Whatever kind of vehicle you drive, choosing the most fuel-efficient model in its class is the single most important way to cut global-warming pollution.
"Global warming is the most serious environmental challenge of our time. It is more urgent and its dangers are more fundamental than most Americans realize," explained Fred Krupp, President of Environmental Defense. "Millions of individual Americans acting together add up to a powerful part of the solution. Many of the transformative solutions will emerge from America, the country with the deepest reservoir of scientists, engineers and bold investors."
Environmental Defense is a centrist organization dedicated to protecting the environmental rights of all people, including the right to clean air, clean water, healthy food and flourishing ecosystems. Guided by science, Environmental Defense works to create practical solutions that win lasting economic and social support because they are nonpartisan, cost-effective and fair.
