Ep #2: Visions and Burning Desires
April 19, 2021
Determination, goals, burning desire... all these concepts are commonly accepted as things we need to have if we're going to succeed. But what about when you don't have those things? Is it still possible to create your vision? In this episode, Deirdre looks at how our unrecognised emotions and brain functions might actually be putting the brakes on the things we want to achieve.

In episode two, Napoleon Hill was mentioned more than once. His classic work on business and self-development, Think and Grow Rich, has spawned an entire industry. The book itself, while carrying much timeless wisdom, is a perfect example of a world view that needs to be reviewed and revised. In my guided reading groups, this is one of the texts that I interrogate and explore in the light of what we now know about the human brain, emotions and the nature of success and fulfillment.
This is the edition I use, partly cos it’s a thumping great book that will withstand the rigours of reading and re-reading and partly because it’s got a series of very insightful forewords.
