How Can I Succeed

Once a person asked Socrates, an ancient Greek philosopher, what is the the secret of Success. Socrates thought for a moment and then told the young man to meet him near the river the next morning.

The met next morning. Socrates told the young man to walk with him inside the river.

When the water got up to their necks, 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 under water until he started turning blue.

The young man struggled hard and finally managed to get up. The first thing he did was to gasp and take a deep breath.

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

The man replied “Air”.

Socrates said: “That’s the most secret to success. When you want success as badly as you want air, you will get it. There is no other secret”.

Moral of the story:

A burning desire is the starting point of all accomplishments. Just like a small fire cannot give much heat, a weak desire cannot produce great results.

So friends, exams are approaching fast and you should be devoted to your preparation with complete focus on exams. Success will surely come to you. All the best!
