Secret to Success

A young man asked Socrates the Secret to Success.

Socrates told the young man to meet him near the river 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 man by surprise and ducked him into water. The boy struggled to get out but Socrates was strong & kept him there till the man started turning blue.

Socrates pulled his head out of water & the first thing the man did was to take a deep breath of air.

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

The man replied “Air.”

Socrates said, “That is the secret to Success. When you want Success as badly as you wanted the air you will get it. There is no other secret.”
