“Tell me what you say you want, then show me one week of your life and I will tell you if you will get it.”

“A teacher should, above all things, first induce a desire in the pupil for the acquisition he wishes to impart.” – Horace Mann (1796-1859), American educational reformist

Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.

After another sell-out concert, the internationally acclaimed, Austrian violinist and composer, Fritz Kreisler (1875-1962), was interviewed by a reporter; also an ardent admirer. “That was wonderful,” said the reporter. “I would gladly give my whole life to be able to play as well as that.” Kreisler looked at him intently and simply said, “That’s what I have done!”

If your desire for something persists, and you are godly in your thinking, it is a very good indication that God is leading you. In Philippians 2:23 we read, “It is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.”

“One of man’s greatest desires is to find meaningful purpose in life and to know that his work is worthwhile.”

R. Ian Seymour

“If you don’t get what you want, it’s a sign that you either didn’t want it seriously enough or that you tried to bargain over the price.”

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936), English poet and novelist

“Show me a thoroughly satisfied man and I will show you a failure!”

Thomas Edison

The key to will power is WANT-POWER.

“Not only must you know what you want, but you must really want what you want, if you are to get what you want.”
