One day a man walked up to his mentor and said “Listen, I’m really struggling right now. I need to get back on the path to success, help me.” Of course he complied and told him, “if you want to learn what you need to do in order to succeed, meet me at the beach tomorrow at 9am. 9am came and they met on the beach.
“Walk into the water”, the mentor says to the man.
So he walks in until he is knee deep.
“Further” the mentor yells.
He walks into the water until his head is the only thing still above water, and that is when the mentor walks in after him. He walks up to him, grabs his head, and pushes it under water. The man is now kicking and yelling and flailing his arms going absolutely berzerck, doing anything he could think of to try and get above the water and right before this man was about to lose consciousness, his head is pulled above water.
Moments away from death this man looked his mentor in the eyes and said “what was that for.”
His response: When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, that my friend, is when you will be successful.
