Becoming Radical requires desire.
When I was initially working on this, I used drive, then determination until I finally chose desire. Why desire instead of the other descriptions, because it was more inclusive of what I am presenting. Determination is a conscious effort, where as desire can be from the sub-conscious. Desire can be triggered by our senses, such as even with our eyes closed most of us can tell when there is fresh bread baking. Smell the fresh bread, and immediately you are thinking just how good it would taste, warm, with butter spread on it, or your favorite home-made jam. Drive or how hard we push to accomplish something, falls into the realm of conscious choice, the same as determination. Desire can feed drive or determination, but the others can’t really create a desire to accomplish something.
Desire is also something that we can learn to master, then leave behind as we progress in gaining maturity. So we can use healthy desires to motivate us, then leave them behind. Unhealthy desires, we should consider as something to be disposed of. Think of your mind as a cup, a healthy desire, such as getting up early to spend more time with you family, instead of staying in bed all day, can help motivate us, so it is a cup of fuel. An unhealthy desire when it fills our cup, we imagine ourselves emptying the cup, and over time that reaction will become automatic, and when unhealthy desires arise, our mind will immediately remove it from consideration.
Getting rid of our desires is part of gaining control, however in the beginning we can make us of the beneficial ones o help us accomplish things. Also it gives us the ability to recognize what desire do to us, so that we can master them.
