 Socrates asked the young man to walk with him towards the river when the water got up to their neck. Socrates took the young man by surprise and dunked him under the water.

The boy struggle to get out but Socrates was strong and held him down. When the boy started turning blue, Socrates raised the boys head out of the water.

The first thing the young man did was to gasp and take a deep breath of air. Socrates asked “what did you want the most when you were under the water.”The boy replied “AIR”. Socrates said, “That is the secret to success”.
