100 % true . Desires must not have an end unless otherwise , it becomes a Greed. 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

Motivation comes after desire. If I desire something, I will find out the motivations. Just like necessity is the mother of inventions.

Yes, Desire is the most fundmental emotion which creates, sustains and even destroys life. Without desire there can be no life. But desire is not the goal and it is like the carrot before a donkey. Desire prompts action and different actions have different goals. Desire by itself is not the goal. For example the desire to eat is a primordeal urge to sustain this biological body. But if one thinks that eatig itself is the purpose of life it becomes disasterous.

Desire to achieve something great, or to be a great person is enough to motivate anyone to be there, but its not necessarily that the person will achieve that result in a honest way.

When you know what you want, and you want it bad enough, you will find a way to get it.

Purpose of motivation is to encourage action. Action require an intention, which means a desire.. This may be a desire for attention, praise, to make somebody happy. Not necessarily the desire is for selfish motives, it may be a genuone feeling of service also. But some desire is always there for taking action. So it becomes an integral part in motivation.
