    The "Want to!" .

    I remember the night in Miami when our son, Ian, was just five years old. We were staying with relatives and it was his bedtime. When I looked at the living room floor, I knew we had a problem. Toys were all over the place. "Ian," I said, "you need to pick up all those toys before you go to bed." "Daddy," he said, "I'm too tired to pick up my toys." My immediate inclination was to force him to clean up the room. Instead, I went into the bedroom, laid down, and said, "Ian, come here. Let’s play Humpty Dumpty." He climbed up on my knees and I said, "Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall." And he fell. Ian laughed and said, "Let's do it again." Well, after the third "fall," I said, "Okay, but first go pick up those toys." Without thinking, he ran into the living room and in ninety seconds he finished a job that could have taken half an hour. Then he jumped back on my knees and repeated, "Daddy, let’s do it again." "Ian, I thought you were too tired to pick up those toys." He answered, "I was, daddy, but I just wanted to do this!" We can finish any job when we have the "Want to!"

    Once upon a time a very strong woodcutter ask for a job in a timber merchant, and he got it. The paid was really good and so were the work conditions. For that reason, the woodcutter was determined to do his best. His boss gave him an axe and showed him the area where he was supposed to work. The first day, the woodcutter brought 18 trees "Congratulations," the boss said. "Go on that way!" Very motivated for the boss’ words, the woodcutter try harder the next day, but he only could bring 15 trees. The third day he try even harder, but he only could bring 10 trees.Day after day he was bringing less and less trees. "I must be losing my strength", the woodcutter thought. He went to the boss and apologized, saying that he could not understand what was going on. "When was the last time you sharpened your axe?" the boss asked. "Sharpen? I had no time to sharpen my axe. I have been very busy trying to cut trees..."

    There was once a boy who wanted to seek the secret of
    success. One day he approached a wise man living up in
    the mountain. When he found the wise man at the hut, he
    asked, “Wise man, can you tell me the secret to becoming
    successful in life?” The wise man was silent for a
    while. After a moment of silence, the wise man led the
    young lad to a nearby river. They kept walking into the
    river until the boy’s head was fully submerged in the
    water. The boy struggled to keep his head above the
    water. To his astonishment, the wise man did not help
    him. Instead, the wise man held the boy’s head in the
    water. After a few minutes the wise man pulled the boy
    out of the water and they proceeded to walk back to the
    hut. At the hut the wise man asked the young boy what
    he desired most when his head was submerged in water.
    To this the young boy quickly responded, “Of course, I
    wanted to breathe, you old fool!” To which the wise man
    replied, “Son, if you desire success as much as you
    wanted to breathe, then you would have found the true
    secret of success.”
