My mentor looked at me for some few minutes before saying a word.
I was agitated not knowing what his response will be.
So he cleared his throat and said, ‘Youngman, I am impressed with you. A lot of people your age have come here to ask for money. They wanted what I have earned not what I have learned. But you desire something different. I will enrol you."
Joy swelled round my face, imagine receiving a direct mentoring from a renown inspirational speaker around the world.
So he pointed at me "You have got the first principle of success. It’s called DESIRE"
He continued, "Desire is the number one principle of success.Years ago, I remember working into my mentor’s office and asking him the same question you asked me today.He gave me the same response."
In the tone of a sage, he added, "Success begins with desire. Those who succeeded in life, simply decided they wanted to succeed.If you desire to succeed, and that desire motivate you to take appropriate steps (One of which you have taken to come here to see me) nothing on earth can stop you from Succeeding"
"That will be all for today. Here is my direct number, next time we shall continue from here."
Thank you sir for the audience and for sharing this with me, I am grateful.
