So goes the old saying. Desiring for more and more may land up in lot of difficulties. Keep achieving bigger things in life and your desires are automatically fulfilled. Have you experienced this truth in your life?

I live in desires. If I have to give up desires, I would have followed Buddha. Desires are greatest part of the dream (day and night) with which I life.

It appears that you live by desires to be realised. May be through dreams. Is any of your dream came real?

Yes. But the saying that has more readily effected me but is very similar is;"The more money you make the more money you need". It is very hard for many of us to live in the here and now, and access what it is you need to accomplish. One thing I am thankfull for while I was on my 7yr. acation was that I planned every step I needed to accomplish. Just taking a little longer.

You have rightly said MORE MONEY YOU MAKE THE MORE MONEY YOU NEED. I was really surprised to know from you that you had a future plan at such a young age, that is really amazing and thanks for your very interesting response.

I think we all experince this at one point in our life eve nat the age of 1 you can if you think about it if you work hard to get what you want rather than just siting around you fulfilled your desires. think about it that 1 yr old boy wants a candy or something well the parents make the child try to walk to get it. thus he is working hard to acheive biger things at least to him it is big. if you do not work to get things than how can you acomplish anything.
