"Desire is the key to motivation,
but it's determination and
commitment to an unrelenting
pursuit of your goal -- a commitment
to excellence -- that will enable you
to attain the success you seek."

Do you agree with Mario Andretti ?

Desire or ambition whatever you call it can only be fructified with tenacity, consistency and perseverence.

A strong passion for any object will ensure success, for the desire of the end will point out the means.

Just I supplement further to your view. Desires springs out from 'Sanga' or our physical contact and atachment with this phenomenal world. Initially 'Sanga' leads to the formation of 'Sankalpa'. Sankalpa stregthened turns into Desire. From such strong Desire emerges Ambition. Ambition seeks the help of Hard work. That Hard work with firm rooted WILL is the resultant of final SUCCESS.
