    There was once a boy who wanted to seek the secret of success. One
    day he approached a wise man living up int he mountain. When he
    found the wise man at the hut, he asked, “Wise man, can you tell me
    the secret to becoming successful in life?”. The wise man was silent
    for awhile.

    After a moment of silence, the wise man led the young lad to a
    nearby river. They kept walking into the river until the boy’s head
    was fully submerged in the water. The boy struggled to keep his head
    above the water. To his astonishment, the wise man did not help him.
    Instead, the wise man held the boy’s head in the water.

    After a few minutes the wise man pulled the boy out of the water and
    they proceeded to walk back to the hut. At the hut the wise man
    asked the young boy what he desired most when his head was submerged
    in water.To this the young boy quickly responded, “Of course, I
    wanted to breathe, you old fool!”. To which the wise man
    replied, “Son, if you desire success as much as you wanted to
    breathe, then you would have found the true secret of success.”

    Success is a matter of choice. If we have enough strong reasons,
    there is nothing that we cannot do. A mere wish would not make
    things happen. It is a burning desire that will generate the energy
    to bring you to achieve any goal that you may desire.

    (Hi again...I would be happy if you can share your desire for success rather than a one liner..............)

    Dear Shan,

    Nice post.... I fully agree with you.... The desire to succeed should come from us.... It is that fire to acheive is what is going to push you to greater heights... But at the same time the fire alone is not going to help... You have to focus and take step by step in acheiving the goals ...

    On the lighter side of it..... Is this a kick in my back or a general topic for discussion...
