Burn The Boats

Burn The Boats

"A pioneer and his crew travelled to an unknown island. When they got there, the pioneer ordered his men to remove everything from the boat. After the boat was clean he ordered his men to burn the boat" this is the summary of a story I read in Think and Grow Rich. After further research, it gets attributed to Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés who ordered his men to burn the boat when they got to the battlefield.
