Desire alone is not enough. But to lack desire, means to lack a key ingredient to success. Many a talented individual failed because they lacked desire. Many victories have been snatched by the underdog because they wanted it more. So if you desire ~ intensely ~ and you act upon it, then everything stands within your reach.
"Nothing is impossible to a willing heart."
"If you only care enough for a result, you will almost certainly attain it."
