Desire, the Starting Point of All Achievment


The First Step toward Riches

‘When Edwin c. Barnes climbed down from the freight train in orange, N. J., more than thirty years ago, he may have resembled a tramp, but his thoughts were those of a king!”

“As he made his war from the railroad tracks to Thomas A. Edison’s office, his mind was at work. He saw himselr standing in Edison .s presence. He heard himself asking Mr Edison for an opportunity to carry out the one Consuming Obesssion of His Life, a BURNING DESIRE to become the business associate of the great inventor.”

“Barnes’ desire was not a hope! It was not a ursh! It was a keen, pulsating DESIRE, which transcended everything else. It was DEFINITE.”

“The desire was not new when he approached Edison It had been Barnes’ dominaming desire for a long time In the beginning. when the desire first appeared in his mmd, it may have been, probably was, only a wish, but it was no mere wish when he appeared before Edison with it.”

“A few years later, Edmin C. Barnes again stood before Edison, in the same office where he first met the inventor. This time his DESIRE had been translated into reality He was in business with Edison. The dominating DREAM OF HIS LIFE had become a reality. Today, people who know Barnes envy him, because or the break life yielded him. They see him in the days of his triumph, without taking the trouble to investigate the cause of his success.”

“Barnes succeeded because he chose a definite goal, placed all his enerb, all his will power, all his effort, everything back of that goal. He aid not become the partner of Edison the day he arrived. He was content to start in the most menial work, as long as it provided an opportunity to take even one step toward his cherished goal.”(Page 33, Think and Grow Rich)
