If you want success, you have to work hard for it. But how could that be possible when you are just struggling to make ends meet?

Here’s a story that can surely motivate you to act on your dreams and even surpass them.  There was a young man who went to a guru and told him, “I want to be like you.” But the guru said if you want to be like me, you have to be determined to succeed. Wake up early tomorrow and come here. The young man was disciplined and before the sun rose, he was already at the designated place. He trained hard and become very determined under the guidance of the guru.

“How bad do you want success?,” the guru asked. And he replied “very badly!” He was told to walk into the water so he walked and understood that pain and sacrifice have to be embraced to get to where he wants to be.

Every day, he trained hard and so like an athlete who invests blood, sweat and tears, he began reaping good harvest from what he planted.

The guru instilled this to him, “If you got to the point where you want success as bad as you want to breathe, then you will be SUCCESSFUL!”
