What is the secret of success?
Let me tell you a story that can help you to discover the real secret of success.
A young man asked Socrates, what is the secret of Success?. Socrates smiled and told him to meet him near the river the next morning.
The young man came early morning near the banks of the river to meet Socrates and get an answer to this question. Socrates asked the man to follow him in the river and they walked towards the water step by step.
When the water was up to their necks, Socrates at once ducked youngmen into the water by holding his neck. The man struggled a lot to get out of the water but the Socrates was strong enough to let him be in the water till the young man started turning blue.
After struggling hard, he finally managed to get up. He took a deep breath to inhale some air immediately.
He looked toward Socrates and Socrates asked, “What did you want the most when you were into the water?”
The man replied “Air”.
On this, Socrates said: “That’s the secret to success. When you want something so badly as you wanted air, you will get it. Because you will struggle for it and this is the secret of success. There is no other secret that can help”.
When you want something from the core of heart then you start working hard for the same. When you work for a goal only with the aim of achieving it, no one can stop you to achieve that goal. Your burning desire is the driving force that leads to your success. If your desire is not strong enough then in no way you can achieve success.
