Think and Grow Rich quotes Visit Amazon for details and reviews about this book. image/svg+xml The starting point of all achievement is DESIRE. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desire brings weak results, just as a small fire makes a small amount of heat. You are the master of your destiny. You can influence, direct and control your own environment. You can make your life what you want it to be. When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal. Set your mind on a definite goal and observe how quickly the world stands aside to let you pass. Happiness is found in doing, not merely possessing.
