in life •  7 months ago

A young man asked Socrates the secret of success. Socrates tow the young man to meet him near the river the next morning. they met.

Socrates asked the young man to walk with him towards the river.

When the water got up to their neck, Socrates took the young man by surprise and ducked him into the water. the man struggled to get out but Socrates was strong and kept him there until he started turning blue.

The young man struggled hard and finny managed to get out and the first thing he did was to gasp and-take deep breath. Socrates asked "What you wanted the most when you were there?" The man replied- 'Air'.

Socrates said "That's the most secret to success. When you want success as badly as you wanted air, you will get it. There is no other secret."


A burning desire is the starting point of am accomplishment. Just Like a small fire cannot give much heat, a weak desire cannot produce great results.
