The Rise Insight: Could you share the inspiration behind the creation of “What- Reason Behind Every Desire”? What were the significant events or experiences that led you to write this book?
Abdul Ghaffar: Absolutely! I would be happy to share the inspiration behind the idea of “What- Reason Behind Every Desire.” It came from my interest in understanding why people do what they do. I noticed that our desires in life are significant and can impact how we live. I would like to re-quote what I’ve already quoted my CEO, Eng. Feras AlHumayed, in this book: “The bigger you think, the bigger piece of cake you will get in this world.” His words fascinated me, prompting a deeper dive into this concept.
Conversations with friends and reading about psychology and discussion with many business leaders intensified my curiosity about why we have desires. Listening to people discuss their own desires and motivations helped me realize that the heart, not the mind, is the epicenter of desire. Recognizing that understanding why we desire things can foster personal growth and better comprehension of each other’s life purposes, I decided to explore this further in the book.
The Rise Insight: As an author, do you believe “What- Reason Behind Every Desire” effectively captures your intended message, or do you anticipate exploring further themes in your future works?

However, I also believe that the exploration of human motivations is a vast and ongoing journey, and there’s room for further exploration in my future works.

I contemplated using a more narrative approach, such as storytelling or case studies, to illustrate the concepts and ideas. Additionally, I thought about incorporating visual elements like diagrams or illustrations to enhance the understanding of complex ideas. Ultimately, I chose the prose format because it allowed for a focused exploration of the subject matter. Through prose, I could explain deeply the concepts, theories, and insights surrounding human desires and motivations. This format provided the flexibility to present a comprehensive analysis while maintaining a clear and direct approach to the core ideas. However, I remain open to experimenting with different formats and styles in future works, as each approach offers unique opportunities for engaging readers and conveying complex ideas effectively.

Steve Olsher has also influence me through his book, “What is your What”. They talk about what and why we want things and how we decide what to do. I’ve also been inspired by the writing style of Robin Sharma, who talks about our hidden thoughts and feelings. The scientific research of HeartMath Institute, USA, has shown me how heart and mind communicate between each other and how heart influence the mind to accepts the desire which germinates in the heart. All these authors have shaped the way I think about human motivations and behaviors. But my book isn’t only about them – it’s also a collection of my own thoughts, experiences, and ideas about what we want and why we want things.

- I also read lots of studies from psychologists, sociologists, philosophers, and talked with different people the way they think. This made sure my ideas were backed up by smart people’s work. I know there’s no one answer to why we want things, so I made space for readers to think too.
- worked hard to make sure my own thoughts and feelings didn’t take over. I had other people read my work and got advice from experts to help me keep things balanced.

The Rise Insight: The title “What – Reason Behind Every Desire” carries multifaceted associations. What is the story behind its selection for your book?
Abdul Ghaffar: As you may be aware, choosing a book title can be quite challenging. Once you settle on a title, you’ve already completed half of your writing journey successfully. Right from the beginning, I wanted to write something that could offer a comprehensive and clear understanding of success in life. In my view, the 3D concept (Define, Design, Deliver) seemed perfect. However, I also wanted a title on the cover that truly represented the book’s purpose. This is why I decided to use question words in a conceptual context. As a result, I chose the title “WHAT and WHY.” Yet, these question words didn’t fully capture the book’s true essence. To address this, I added a subtitle to the main title of the book, such as “WHY – Reason for Every Action” or “WHAT – Reason Behind Every Desire,” and so on.
