desire

what is desire???what its impact on life,is it good or bad side.i do have my own desire...desire to have perfectness in my life..."perfectness" refers to a very high level of comfortable life,i would say that...ha ha...desire in my useful (oxford dictionary 2002) defines a strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen.people do have their own desirous of life such as having luxury car, gigantic house, good return of investment, powerful company,excellent in studies and etc.

desire can be be in positive or negative view...in positive way, it will creates how creative you are in designing and plan it to be..but how?planning of getting your desire also need to be; i would say that need to be legal and in a sense of positive thinking..moreover, desirous or aim in life will gives you strength to encounter obstacles...

in negative way, desire makes you not to think precisely and bad measures when you are fancy it too much and impact on this, you will not even bother how it will happens...for examples, in desirous of getting wealth in short period, people go for bribe and getting into illegal investment.

in my opinion of desire, desire can be a good or bad, so think wisely before you enter any ways; it may lead you to achievement or achieve but then fall down or really bad....bad life....
