It is said that those who don’t know talk too much and those who do know talk too little. We talk a great game a lot of the time, but there are fewer who will pause to listen to the stories and take the steps necessary to achieve their own personal greatness. Personally, I would rather watch someone doing than listen to someone talking about the steps which they might or might not have taken.
