Secret of Success @ IITJEE
The title of this article is weird, isn’t it? You would be thinking that what can be the secret of getting into IIT (if there is one)? If it is there then why not someone else has told you this before? Some of you might even be thinking that I have gone mad or I am trying to get your attention. But I assure you that by the end of this article, you will be very much agreeing with me. So here it goes.

I will first ask you to guess. Is it the hard work? Or it is dedication? Some of you might be thinking of discipline and some other must be thinking of intelligence. But the answer is no to all of them. All these are the secondary things which come on their own if you have the secret. So let me unfold the mystery. It’s the “desire”. The desire to see yourself as an IITian. The desire to see your name as a successful candidate of JEE in the newspapers. It’s the desire to see your parents enjoying their happiest moment of life given by you. It’s the desire to give your elders and your old parents a quality life. It’s the true love with your dreams. Yes it’s the desire to make your dream real. It’s the desire to shut up the mouth of everyone who has ever doubted on your capabilities. It’s the desire to change your life. It’s the desire to lead everyone in the race.
As I told you, all the other factors like discipline and hard work will come to you by them just if you have this burning desire within you. We all have some short of desire. For me it was the desire to short out all the financial problems of my family. Similarly you have to find your extreme desire and use it as a weapon to get all the other factors necessary for success at JEE. At this point I will like to warn you that there is very significant difference between desire and daydreaming. Daydreaming is just dreaming without acting whereas desire is to act to make your dream true at any cost. It’s the inner strength to sacrifice everything coming in between you and your dream. So desire for IIT and not just daydream it. Once the concept of desire is clear to you I believe that you don’t have any doubt left on how to study, hoe to improve concentration, time management and all. All these will seem funny to you. So start desiring.
