A man who speaks how to achieve something and that person has born with a silver spoon in his mouth, then one can take seriously what is being said.
If a man who has gone through difficulties has prevailed and has seen the darker side of life speaks of success and how to manage your life, then that is something that is worth listening to.
Experience is what defines how much of ones words and actions are taken as examples.
He who has it tough has grate potential to become an example. He who has everything easy doesn’t stand a chance.
