overcoming reluctancy - burning desire


Next stop in the "reluctant volunteer" series: Steve Pavlina has a nice article about Cultivating Burning Desire:
"[W]hen you are truly 100% committed to reaching your goals, you move from hoping to knowing. If you want something badly enough, then quitting is simply not an option. You either find a way or make one. You pay the price, whatever it takes."

He goes on to list eight steps to total commitment, which I will paraphrase here:

Some of these might seem difficult to achieve in most situations - especially the people/environment related ones. But Things like positive visualisations can be a great help with those. Sometimes we can't seem to be able to take direct action. But having a burning desire will get our sub-consciousness into gear. It will start moving things into directions that solve many problem without the need for headstrong direct action.

So, don't let yourself get stoped by not being able or willing to achieve all those eight points. Work at those you can. The others might just follow naturally!

Ok in the context of "reluctant volunteers" this might not be so very much helpfull. Cultivating a burning desire after all is something these volunteers need to do - on their own. But maybe inspiring and cultivating a burning desire in others is worth a thought.
