BURNING DESIRE TO WIN: Motivational story of Success
A great warrior once confronted a circumstance that required him to make a choice that ensured his victory on the battlefield. He was preparing to launch his forces against a strong adversary who had more soldiers than he had. He put his troops onto boats, sailed to the enemy’s land, disembarked the troops and equipment, and then issued the order to set fire to the ships that had transported them. You see the boats blowing up in flames, he shouted to his soldiers before the first combat. That implies that unless we succeed, we cannot go from these shores alive! We must now choose between winning and dying. They triumphed.
Any individual who succeeds in an endeavor must be willing to destroy his ships and shut off all escape routes. Only by doing this can one be certain of preserving the mental attitude known as a BURNING DESIRE TO WIN, which is necessary for success.
