Taking advice from bartenders

I am all for telling stories and leading others towards shared vision with tidbits of personal experience. However, this particular example somehow does not resonate in my mind. What do you think?

My uncle had a little yapper dog. Always put its damn wet nose in my face. When it died, I was relieved. Their next dog greeted us when we first came in, and then shut up. I pet it all the time. See, let them come to you, my man. You're so busy making an impression that you neglect the work that actually does impress. Put your nose down, do your best, and you'll be noticed for what you produce, not what you say.
