The athlete said, "Never ask anyone else for advice. You have to figure out what is necessary, on your own."
The young man paused, then said, "Okay, but what would you recommend I do to be just like you?"
The athlete said, "Stop asking questions. Go; do. Live; learn." He walked away.
The young man was puzzled, and taken aback by the abrupt departure. He yelled a final plea. "But you never told me what to do!"
The departing athlete heard, and smiled. "That is my answer," he thought.
