Negative results from the desire

1. Loss or failure will hit you

If you make so many efforts you will always need or want to be the best. And eventually, if you fail to achieve your goals you won’t be able to handle that.

Even though failure and success are a natural part of our life.

2. Expectation of perfection

It’s very natural if you do something so perfectly. You will expect others to be the same. But it’s not important that if you do something in a certain way so, that others will do that in the same way.

Even with family and friends, they start to expect things in their way.

3. They will not achieve their goals

Because as desires give you strength it can drive you back too. As I mentioned people who are addicted to success can’t handle failure easy. So in order to take steps sometimes they back off because they don’t want to take the risk.


  1. You can achieve your dream if you have a strong desire.
  2. Desire is somewhere related to purpose in life.
  3. Desire is the thing that will give you strength when things aren’t going good.
  4. Desire will guide your plans. If you desire something. You will make plans for it. You will go through several new things.
