One day a boy asked an old man who was famous as a wise man, how to be successful.

The wise person said to meet him at the river the next morning for the answer.

The next morning, they walked to the river together.

They went deep into the water until it covered their noses and mouths.

Suddenly, the wise person pushed the boy underwater.

The boy struggled to come up, but the wise person kept pushing him down.

The boy fought hard to get out and finally, the wise person lifted his head above water.

The wise person asked, “Why did you fight so much when you were underwater?” The boy answered, “For air!”

The wise person explained, “That’s the secret to success.”

“When you want to succeed as much as you want air underwater, that’s the key. Want success that much, and you’ll find it. That’s the only secret.”

Moral of the story

Success depends entirely on how hard and smart you try.
