One day a young man asked Socrates,

“What is the secret to success?”

Socrates told the young man to meet him near the river the next morning.

The boy did as Socrates asked and the next morning they met at the river.

They walked down into the water and when the water got up to their necks, Socrates took the young man by surprise, grabbed the back of his head and pushed it under the water.

The boy struggled to get his head above the water but Socrates held on tightly keeping the boy’s head down until he started to turn blue.

Socrates pulled the boy’s head out of the water. The boy gasped for air, took a deep breath and looked at Socrates puzzled.

“What did you want the most when you were under the water?” Socrates asked.

“Air” the boy replied. “That is the secret to success.

When you want success as badly as you wanted air, then you will get it. There is no other secret,” exclaimed Socrates.

A burning desire is the starting point of all accomplishment.

Just like a small fire cannot give much heat, a weak desire cannot produce great results…

What do you want?
