Often someone tells me how much they would like to learn to use a computer. I scratch my head in wonderment as to why they aren't learning if they mean that they want to learn. I have concluded that today learning a computer or most anything else begins where success always begins: with desire.
Desire is transforming thought. I've seen people were habits that were destroying their life transfored when they desired change for the better. It's been my good fortune to know emigrants that came to this country with nothng. But the desire to be in a free country that provided opportunity brought them here. When they got settled they began lviing the American Dream because of the desire in their heart and mind.
Desire is not sufficient within itself. Beyond desire is hard work. As it has been said many times, "the only place that success comes before hard work is in the dictionary." Desire accompanied by hard work will result in success.
Along the way I've heard the musings of some who have looked on successful people and wanted to trade places with them because they admired their status. When all was said and done they thought that their success came on a silver platter that it was handed to them. Few people become successful that way. Most have a desire, then apply themselves to the task of doing whatever is required of them to achieve success.
If you want to learn to operate or use a computer you can. Only if you have the desire and are willing to the hard work and give time to the task. It's a great day to be alive for many reasons. One of my reasons for celebrating today are the advances in technology that has put me in touch the geographical world but also in touch with the world of advancing knowledge.
