"I can't swordfight. But, I can share and explore some powerful insights."
On the flipside, I know one person who is ripped, super fit, arms twice the size of my legs each. But dim as a burnt bulb at midnight.
Both mind and body can be trained, and if you can work both I would recommend doing so. But ensure you don't overtrain one and forget about the other.
