There is a difference between wishing for a thing and being ready to receive it. No one is ready for a thing until he believes he can acquire it. The state of mind must be belief, not mere hopes or wishes. open-mindedness is essential for belief. Closed minds do not inspire faith, courage or belief.
Remember no more effort is needed to aim high in life, to demand abundance and prosperity, than required to accept misery and poverty.
A great poem has correctly stated this universal truth through these lines
“I bargained with life for a penny,
And life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening,
When I counted my scanty store”
“For life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, You must bear the task.”
“I worked for a menial hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of life,
Life would have willingly paid”
Burning desire is what gets you through all the perspiration necessary to overcome the inevitable obstacles along the way.
