“Mere interest is not enough. Desire is not enough. What you need is a deep knowing that what you have inside you and what you are drawn to outside you are the same thing in essence.”
The word affinity means a deep attraction to things of a like essence. E.g., Not only do fish live in water, but fish has an affinity for water. The fish can recognize that what it needs and what sustains it is found only in the water.
So as a person of great potential in life, you must recognize what you have an affinity towards. Mere interest is not enough. Desire is not enough. What you need is a deep knowing that what you have inside you and what you are drawn to outside you are the same thing in essence.
You are meant for it and it’s meant for you. Affinity is knowing that the kind of success you want badly, also wants you badly. It’s allowing what you are chasing to also chase you. So, if you need it as much as you need oxygen and if you can’t breathe i.e., live without it, then you have an affinity for it.
Affinity is not just chasing wealth. It’s being able to attract wealth. It’s not just aspiring for leadership. Its leadership positions following you were ever you go.
Realize that it’s only a person who is presidential Material inside who will admire presidents and it’s only a person who is pastoral Material who will admire pastors.
Affinity is grabbing a hold of the thing that is grabbing a hold of you. It’s embracing and removing limitations from the good thing that you attract knowing that it belongs to you. Greatness in life starts by being able to understand this law of affinity.
