"If you look closely at overnight successes, you'll find that they usually took about ten years of preparation."
"Ten years..." I said, mostly to myself.
"Think of it!" she said. "In ten years, you can accomplish nearly anything. You can become a physician or a scientist. You can develop high-level skills in a sport, game, or martial art. You can become an expert on any subject. You can become an expert on any subject. You can create wealth or transform your body."
