The sage put his hand on his shoulder and with a smiling face said," My dear son, I appreciate your quest for the success and I would reveal you the secret of success with a practical lively example."

The sage took him to a stream which very close to his cottage. The young man looked at him with some kind of riddle. But, the wise sage smiled looking at him as he were innocent. They got down to the stream which was flowing down with crystal clear and pure water. As they reached water, suddenly wise sage held the young man's hair and dipped into the water up to his throat and pressed him down. The young man was struggling for his breath but the sage did loosen his grip and tried to dip him down and down. Finally the young man struggled and stood up by panting and looked at the sage with anger and shouted....

The sage smiled and taught him," My dear son, you struggled a lot for your life and you were alive. In the same manner , you try for your life and you can get like how you have been alive now. This is the secret of success , My dear son."
