A young student asked his Mentor the secret to success. Mentor told the young Student to meet him near the river the next morning. They met. Mentor asked the young Student to follow him toward the river. When the water got up to their neck, Mentor took the Student by surprise and ducked him into the water. The boy struggled to get out but Mentor was strong and kept him there until the boy started turning blue. Mentor pulled his head out of the water and the first thing the young Student did was to gasp and take a deep breath. Mentor asked, ‘What did you want the most when you were Under water?” The boy replied, “Air.” Mentor said, “That is the secret to success. When you want success as badly as you wanted the air, then you will get it.” There is no other secret.
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…
All success stories are stories of great failures. The only difference is that every time they failed, they bounced back. This is called failing forward, rather than backward. You learn and move forward. Learn from your failure and keep moving.
