Great Wall of China – Character

The Great Wall of China is one the Seven Wonders of the World an impressive sight to behold. It took 500,000 men and centuries to build.  Once completed it stood an average of about 20 feet tall and its length extended approximately 4,000 miles long (making it the largest manmade structure in history).  The wall was also filled with battle forts and watch towers.  To potential invaders it seems impenetrable.  

Yet the Great Wall of China proved to be the most expensive military failure in history.  China was invaded multiple times without being scaled or a single stone being moved.  It seemed all the invaders had to do was simply bribe the guards and walk straight through.

Many times we spend endless time and energy perfecting the outside aspects of our game only to be let down by something we have neglected on the inside.
