A young man asked Socrates the secret to success.
Socrates told the young man to meet him near the river the next morning.
They met. Socrates asked the young man to walk with him toward the river.
When the water got up to their neck, Socrates took the young man by surprise and ducked him into the water.
The boy struggled to get out but Socrates was strong and kept him there until the boy started turning blue.
Socrates pulled his head out of the water and the first thing the young man did was to gasp and take a deep breath of air.
Socrates asked, “What did you want the most when you were there?”
The boy replied, “Air.”
Socrates said, “That is the secret to success.
When you want success as badly as you wanted the air, then you will get it.”
