It could be the girl of your dreams, the car of your dreams or just that dream job you’ve always wanted. One thing is for sure, we all have been there.

When it comes to wanting things really badly, the word that comes to my head is ‘desperation’.

From my experience, nothing drives a goal further away from you as desperation.

It’s kind of funny though that some schools of thoughts equate being desperate about a goal, or wanting it so badly, is showing the universe or God how serious you are about that goal or objective.
