The Secret of Success.. Inspiring Story

A young man asked Socrates, an ancient Greek philosopher
the secret of 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 necks, Socrates took 
the young man by surprise and ducked him into the water. 
The man struggled to get out but Socrates was strong and 
kept him under water until he started turning blue.
The young man struggled hard and finally managed to get up. 
The first thing he did was to gasp and take a deep breath.
Socrates asked, 
“What did you want the most when you were under the water?”
The man replied “Air”.
Socrates said: “That’s the most secret to success. 
When you want success as badly as you want air, you will get it. 
There is no other secret”.

God and Me Beautiful Inspiring Story

A Good Lesson for those who dont Hope and Quit in Life...
One day I decided to quit...

I quit my job, my relationship, my Spirituality...
I wanted to quit my life.

I went to the woods to have one last talk with God.
God, I said. Can you give me one good reason
not to quit His answer surprised me...

Look around, He said. Do you see the fern and the bamboo
Yes, I replied.

When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds,
I took very good care of them.
I gave them light. I gave them water.
The fern quickly grew from the earth.
Its brilliant green covered the floor.
Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed.

But I did not quit on the bamboo.
In the second year the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful.
And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed.
But I did not quit on the bamboo.

He said.
In year three there was still nothing from the bamboo seed.
But I would not quit. In year four, again,
there was nothing from the bamboo seed.
I would not quit. He said.
Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout emerged from the earth.
Compared to the fern it was seemingly small and insignificant.
But just 6 months later the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall.
It had spent the five years growing roots.

Those roots made it strong and gave it what it needed to survive.
I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle.
He said to me.

Did you know, that all this time you have been struggling,
you have actually been growing roots
I would not quit on the bamboo. I will never quit on you.
Don't compare yourself to others.

He said. The bamboo had a different purpose than the fern.
Yet they both make the forest beautiful.
Your time will come, God said to me. You will rise high
How high should I rise I asked.
How high will the bamboo rise He asked in return.
As high as it can I questioned
Yes. He said, Give me glory by rising as high as you can.

I left the forest and bring back this story.
I hope these words can help you see that
God will never give up on you.
He will never give up on you!

Lesson from the story:
In life never lose hope and never give up
or quit in life and Success will come to you later in life
