What is the secret of success?

A young man asked Socrates, “What is the secret of success?” Socrates was a practical philosopher. He said, “Come tomorrow at the river, I will give you the reply there.”

They met at the river. When they were bathing, Socrates ducked young man into the water. The young man struggled to get out of water, but, Socrates was strong and kept him there until the man started turning blue. Then, Socrates pulled his head out of water. As soon as he came out of water, he took a deep breath of air.

Socrates asked, “What did you want the most when your head was under the water?”

“Air.” He replied.

Socrates replied, “That is the secret of success. When you want success as badly as you wanted the air, only then you will get it.” Thus, burning desire is the secret of success.
