"What You Are Will Show In What You Do"

Thomas A. Edison said it so well we'll repeat it:

"What you are will show in what you do."

It is not the letters behind your name, the family that you have, the advantages you have or don't have, or even if you were blessed with executive hair and have a nice tan and smile.

What you do with your life - shows who and what you are.

Seek out teachers, leaders,and mentors from those that accomplish great things. If instead you study under professional students that became professors by default - expect to learn how to be an industrial age bureaucratic student.

If your goal is to do great things - study people that have done great things.

For most people their whole lives make as much difference as putting your hand in a bucket of water and then removing it - a few ripples and the impression is gone.

Find those doers that will be remembered - study how they became that way - do it yourself.
