You Can't Fake Greatness

...Or buy it.  It takes real passion and determination.  And knowledge and courage.  It's not guitar hero.  It's not being connected, so connected that your success is bought with favors.  

It's embodying being truly great.  Believing in something through time and space to see it through to completion, whatever it is.
